7 حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ الْوَلِيدِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَبِي الْقَاسِمِ مَاجِيلَوَيْهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ الْقُرَشِيِّ عَنْ عُبَيْدِ بْنِ يَحْيَى الثَّوْرِيِّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ جَدِّهِ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ (ع) قَالَ زَارَنَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ (ص) ذَاتَ يَوْمٍ فَقَدَّمْنَا إِلَيْهِ طَعَاماً وَ أَهْدَتْ إِلَيْنَا أُمُّ أَيْمَنَ صَحْفَةً مِنْ تَمْرٍ وَ قَعْباً مِنْ لَبَنٍ وَ زُبْدٍ فَقَدَّمْنَا إِلَيْهِ فَأَكَلَ مِنْهُ فَلَمَّا فَرَغَ قُمْتُ وَ سَكَبْتُ عَلَى يَدَيْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ (ص) مَاءً فَلَمَّا غَسَلَ يَدَيْهِ مَسَحَ وَجْهَهُ وَ لِحْيَتَهُ بِبِلَّةِ يَدَيْهِ ثُمَّ قَامَ إِلَى مَسْجِدٍ فِي جَانِبِ الْبَيْتِ وَ صَلَّى وَ خَرَّ سَاجِداً فَبَكَى وَ أَطَالَ الْبُكَاءَ ثُمَّ رَفَعَ رَأْسَهُ فَمَا اجْتَرَأَ مِنَّا أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ أَحَدٌ يَسْأَلُهُ عَنْ شَيْءٍ فَقَامَ الْحُسَيْنُ (ع) يَدْرُجُ حَتَّى صَعِدَ عَلَى فَخِذَيْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ (ص) فَأَخَذَ بِرَأْسِهِ إِلَى صَدْرِهِ وَ وَضَعَ ذَقَنَهُ عَلَى رَأْسِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ (ص) ثُمَّ قَالَ يَا أَبَتِ مَا يُبْكِيكَ فَقَالَ لَهُ يَا بُنَيَّ إِنِّي نَظَرْتُ إِلَيْكُمُ الْيَوْمَ فَسُرِرْتُ بِكُمْ سُرُوراً لَمْ أُسَرَّ بِكُمْ قَبْلَهُ مِثْلَهُ فَهَبَطَ إِلَيَّ جَبْرَئِيلُ فَأَخْبَرَنِي أَنَّكُمْ قَتْلَى وَ أَنَّ مَصَارِعَكُمْ شَتَّى فَحَمِدْتُ اللَّهَ عَلَى ذَلِكَ وَ سَأَلْتُ لَكُمُ الْخِيَرَةَ فَقَالَ لَهُ يَا أَبَتِ فَمَنْ يَزُورُ قُبُورَنَا وَ يَتَعَاهَدُهَا عَلَى تَشَتُّتِهَا قَالَ طَوَائِفُ مِنْ أُمَّتِي يُرِيدُونَ بِذَلِكَ بِرِّي وَ صِلَتِي- أَتَعَاهَدُهُمْ فِي الْمَوْقِفِ وَ آخُذُ بِأَعْضَادِهِمْ فَأَنْجَاهُمْ مِنْ أَهْوَالِهِ وَ شَدَائِدِهِ

7. Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan ibn Aĥmad ibn Walǐd narrated to me from Muĥammad ibn Abil Qāsim Mājǐlawayh, from Muĥammad ibn ‘Ali Al-Qurashi, from ‘Ubayd ibn Yaĥyā Al-Thawri, from Muĥammad ibn Ĥusain ibn ‘Ali ibn Ĥusain, from his father, from his grandfather (Imam Sajjād (a.s.)), who said: (The Commander of the Believers), ‘Ali ibn Abǐ Ťālib (a.s.) said: The Messenger of Allāh (s.a.a.w.) came to visit us one day. We offered some food to him. We also offered him a platter filled with dates and a goblet filled with milk and butter, which Um Ayman had sent to us. After he finished eating, I stood up and poured water over his hands. He washed his hands and then wiped his face and beard with the remainder of the water on his hands. Then he went to the (designated) place of prayer in the corner of the house and started praying. He fell into Sujūd and started to cry. After crying for a long time, he raised his head. None of us, the Ahlul Bayt, dared to ask him anything. However, Ĥusain (a.s.) moved (toward the Prophet (s.a.a.w.)) and climbed on the lap of the Messenger of Allāh (s.a.a.w.). He placed the head of the Prophet (s.a.a.w.) over his chest with his chin on the head of the Messenger of Allāh (s.a.a.w.). Then he said, “O Father! What makes you cry?” The Prophet (s.a.a.w.) replied: O my son! When I saw you (the Ahlul Bayt) today I felt a happiness that I had never felt before, but then Jabra`ǐl came down to me and informed me that you will all be killed and that your graves will be far from each other. So I praised Allāh and asked Him to bless you (the Ahlul Bayt) with the best of all things. Ĥusain (a.s.) asked, “O father! Then who will come to the Ziyārah of our graves and stay committed to them even though they will be far from each other?” The Prophet (s.a.a.w.) replied, “Those from my nation who seek to please me and connect with me by coming to your graves. On the Day of Judgment, I will find them and take them by their arms and save them from the difficulties and terrors of that day.”
