6 وَ حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ الْوَلِيدِ عَنْ سَعْدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ صَفْوَانَ بْنِ يَحْيَى عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ أَبِي غُنْدَرٍ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ شِمْرٍ عَنْ جَابِرٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (ع) قَالَ قَالَ أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (ص) زَارَنَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ (ص) وَ قَدْ أَهْدَتْ لَنَا أُمُّ أَيْمَنَ لَبَناً وَ زُبْداً وَ تَمْراً فَقَدَّمْنَا مِنْهُ فَأَكَلَ ثُمَّ قَامَ إِلَى زَاوِيَةِ الْبَيْتِ فَصَلَّى رَكَعَاتٍ [رَكْعَتَانِ] [رَكْعَتَيْنِ فَلَمَّا كَانَ فِي آخِرِ سُجُودِهِ بَكَى بُكَاءً شَدِيداً فَلَمْ يَسْأَلْهُ أَحَدٌ مِنَّا إِجْلَالًا وَ إِعْظَاماً لَهُ فَقَامَ الْحُسَيْنُ (ع) وَ قَعَدَ فِي حَجْرِهِ فَقَالَ يَا أَبَتِ لَقَدْ دَخَلْتَ بَيْتَنَا فَمَا سُرِرْنَا بِشَيْءٍ كَسُرُورِنَا بِدُخُولِكَ ثُمَّ بَكَيْتَ بُكَاءً غَمَّنَا فَمَا أَبْكَاكَ فَقَالَ يَا بُنَيَّ أَتَانِي جَبْرَئِيلُ (ع) آنِفاً فَأَخْبَرَنِي أَنَّكُمْ قَتْلَى وَ أَنَّ مَصَارِعَكُمْ شَتَّى فَقَالَ يَا أَبَتِ فَمَا لِمَنْ زَارَ قُبُورَنَا عَلَى تَشَتُّتِهَا فَقَالَ يَا بُنَيَّ أُولَئِكَ طَوَائِفُ مِنْ أُمَّتِي يَزُورُونَكُمْ فَيَلْتَمِسُونَ بِذَلِكَ الْبَرَكَةَ وَ حَقِيقٌ عَلَيَّ أَنْ آتِيَهُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ حَتَّى أُخَلِّصَهُمْ مِنْ أَهْوَالِ السَّاعَةِ وَ مِنْ ذُنُوبِهِمْ وَ يُسْكِنُهُمُ اللَّهُ الْجَنَّةَ

6. Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan ibn Aĥmad ibn Walǐd narrated to me from Sa’d ibn ‘Abdillāh, from Muĥammad ibn ‘Isā (ibn ‘Ubayd), from Šafwān ibn Yaĥyā, from Ĥusain ibn Abǐ Ghundar, from ‘Amr ibn Shimr, from Jābir (Al-Ju’fi), from Abǐ Ja’far (Imam Bāqir (a.s.)), who said: The Commander of the Believers (a.s.) said: The Messenger of Allāh (s.a.a.w.) came to visit us (one day). Um Ayman had given us some milk, butter, and dates, so we offered it to the Messenger of Allāh (s.a.a.w.). After he ate, he went to a corner of the house and started praying. However, at the end of his last Sujūd, he began to cry profusely. Because of our respect and reverence for him, we did not ask him why he was crying. However Ĥusain (a.s.) went and sat on his lap and said, “O Father! When you entered our house (today), we felt a happiness that we had never felt before. But then you started to cry and your crying has grieved us. What made you cry?” The Prophet (s.a.a.w.) replied, “O my son! Jabra`ǐl came to me just now and informed me that you will all be killed and the places of your martyrdom will be far from one another.” Ĥusain (a.s.) asked, “O Father! What is the reward for those who come to the Ziyārah of our graves although they are far from one another?” The Prophet (s.a.a.w.) replied: O my son! Verily there will be some groups from my nation who will come to your Ziyārah seeking blessings. By doing so, they will deserve to be visited by me on the Day of Judgment. I will save them from the terrors of the Hour (Day of Judgment) and from their sins. Verily Allāh will make them dwell in Paradise.
