Hadith #3

3 حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي (رحمه الله) وَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ وَ عَلِيُّ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ وَ عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ قُولَوَيْهِ جَمِيعاً عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ إِدْرِيسَ وَ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ يَحْيَى عَنِ الْعَمْرَكِيِّ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ الْبُوفَكِيِّ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى وَ كَانَ فِي خِدْمَةِ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ الثَّانِي (ع) عَنْ عَلِيٍّ عَنْ صَفْوَانَ الْجَمَّالِ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) فِي حَدِيثٍ لَهُ طَوِيلٍ قُلْتُ فَمَا لِمَنْ قُتِلَ عِنْدَهُ يَعْنِي عِنْدَ قَبْرِ الْحُسَيْنِ جَارَ عَلَيْهِ السُّلْطَانُ فَقَتَلَهُ قَالَ أَوَّلُ قَطْرَةٍ مِنْ دَمِهِ يُغْفَرُ لَهُ بِهَا كُلُّ خَطِيئَةٍ وَ تُغْسَلُ طِينَتُهُ الَّتِي خُلِقَ مِنْهَا الْمَلَائِكَةُ حَتَّى يَخْلُصَ كَمَا خَلَصَتِ الْأَنْبِيَاءُ المخلصين [الْمُخْلَصُونَ وَ يَذْهَبُ عَنْهَا مَا كَانَ خَالَطَهَا مِنْ أَدْنَاسِ طِينِ أَهْلِ الْكُفْرِ وَ الْفَسَادِ- وَ يُغْسَلُ قَلْبُهُ وَ يُشْرَحُ وَ يُمْلَأُ إِيمَاناً فَيَلْقَى اللَّهَ وَ هُوَ مُخْلَصٌ مِنْ كُلِّ مَا يُخَالِطُهُ الْأَبْدَانُ وَ الْقُلُوبُ وَ يُكْتَبُ لَهُ شَفَاعَةٌ فِي أَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ وَ أَلْفٍ مِنْ إِخْوَانِهِ وَ تَتَوَلَّى الصَّلَاةَ عَلَيْهِ الْمَلَائِكَةُ مَعَ جَبْرَئِيلَ وَ مَلَكِ الْمَوْتِ وَ يُؤْتَى بِكَفَنِهِ وَ حَنُوطِهِ مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ وَ يُوَسَّعُ قَبْرُهُ وَ يُوضَعُ لَهُ مَصَابِيحُ فِي قَبْرِهِ وَ يُفْتَحُ لَهُ بَابٌ مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ وَ تَأْتِيهِ الْمَلَائِكَةُ بِطُرَفٍ مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ وَ يُرْفَعُ بَعْدَ ثَمَانِيَةَ عَشَرَ يَوْماً إِلَى حَظِيرَةِ الْقُدْسِ فَلَا يَزَالُ فِيهَا مَعَ أَوْلِيَاءِ اللَّهِ حَتَّى تُصِيبَهُ النَّفْخَةُ الَّتِي لَا تَبْقَى شَيْئاً فَإِذَا كَانَتِ النَّفْخَةُ الثَّانِيَةُ وَ خَرَجَ مِنْ قَبْرِهِ كَانَ أَوَّلُ مَنْ يُصَافِحُهُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ (ص) وَ أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَ الْأَوْصِيَاءَ وَ يُبَشِّرُونَهُ وَ يَقُولُونَ لَهُ الْزَمْنَا وَ يُقِيمُونَهُ عَلَى الْحَوْضِ فَيَشْرَبُ مِنْهُ وَ يَسْقِي مَنْ أَحَبَّ

3. My father, Muĥammad ibn Ĥasan, ‘Ali ibn Ĥusain, and (my brother) ‘Ali ibn Muĥammad ibn Qūlawayh all narrated to me from Aĥmad ibn Idrǐs, and from Muĥammad ibn Yaĥyā, from ‘Amraki ibn ‘Ali Al-Būfaki, from Yaĥyā – who was the servant of Abǐ Ja’far the Second (Imam Jawād (a.s.)), from ‘Ali (ibn Ĥakam), from Šafwān Al-Jammāl, who said: … I asked (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)), “What is the reward for those who are killed next to the grave of Ĥusain (a.s.) – those who are captured by a dominating power and killed?” Imam (a.s.) replied: All of their sins will be forgiven with the first drop of their blood which is spilled. Then the angels will cleanse the clay from which they were created. The impurities which were mixed with their clay – (originally) from the filthy materials used in the clay of the disbelievers and the wicked ones – will be removed from their clay until it becomes as pure as the clay of the devoted prophets. Then their heart will be cleansed, expanded, and filled with faith. Therefore, they will meet Allāh while they are pure from every impurity which might be mixed with the heart or the body. They will be granted the power of intercession for their family members and one thousand of their brothers (in faith). Jabra`ǐl and the Angel of Death, along with (the rest of) the angels, will undertake establishing the prayers on them. Furthermore, their shroud and embalmment will be brought for them from Paradise. Their graves will be expanded, some lamps will be placed in them, and a door will be opened from Paradise to their graves. Then the angels will bring exquisite gifts from Paradise to them. Eighteen days later, they will be moved to the Sacred Sanctuary and they will stay there in the company of Allāh’s Divine Authorities until the trumpet, which will leave nothing alive, is sounded. When the trumpet is sounded for the second time and they are resurrected from their graves, the first among those who will shake hands with them will be the Messenger of Allāh (s.a.a.w.), the Commander of the Believers (a.s.), and the successors (a.s.). They will give glad tidings to them and tell them to hold on to them and to follow them to the Pool where they will be allowed to drink and give water to whomever they wish.
