The discussion of the killer of Imam Husain (a.s.) was going on with Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.).A companion expressed his wish saying that Allah should take revenge from the killer in this world itself. Imam (a.s.) told him, “In this way, you are reducing the punishment of Allah while it is very severe and painful.”

Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “A dome of light will be made for Fatima on the Day of Judgment. Imam Husain (a.s.) will enter that dome carrying his head in his hands. Fatima (s.a.) will start crying upon seeing him so much so that entire assembly, angels, prophets and messengers and believers will wail loudly. At that time the Almighty Allah will create a handsome youth out of that head to fight with the killers of Imam Husain (a.s.). The Almighty Allah will gather all the killers and their supporters. That youth will kill all of them and they will be brought back to life. Amirul Momineen (a.s.) will come and kill all of them and they will again be brought back to life. Imam Hasan (a.s.) will kill all of them and they will be brought back to life once again. Imam Husain (a.s.) will kill them all and they will be given life again. There will be no person in our progeny who will not give them death. Then the curtain will be moved aside with anger and everyone will forget the sorrow. May Allah shower mercy on our Shias. By Allah, our Shias are true believers for they have grieved with us for a long time in this calamity.”

“By Allah, Qaim of the progeny of Muhammad will kill the progeny of the killers of Imam Husain (a.s.) for the crime of their ancestors.”

Fatima Zahra (s.a.) will come surrounded by the women of her family on the Day of Judgment. When asked to enter Paradise, she will say, “I will not enter Paradise until I have seen how my daughters were treated after me.” She will be asked to look at the center of Qiyamat where Imam Husain (a.s.) will be standing headless. He will utter a loud cry and the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) himself will start mourning loudly. Angels will start weeping on seeing him and Almighty Allah will be enraged at that time. He will order the fire named Hab-hab (which has burned for a thousand years and had become black due to burning. No happiness would have ever entered this fire nor any sorrow would have come out of it) to bring the killers of Imam Husain (a.s.) even if they were Muslims. They will be put into Hell shackled in chains. If they cry, the fire will also cry. If they groan, the fire will also groan. They will cry out, “O Allah! Why were we put into Hell before the infidels?” They will be told, “Those who know are not like those who don’t know.”
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)

He accompanied Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) on the journey from Mecca to Medina. They reached a place called ‘Ghasfaat’. When they moved ahead, they saw a path resembling the Black Mountain. Abdullah asked Imam, “O son of messenger of Allah, how frightful this path is! I saw such a dangerous mountain first time during travels.” Imam said, “Do you know what mountain it is? It is called Jabalul Kamad. It is one of the canyons of Hell, which is reserved as the abode of the killers of Imam Husain (a.s.). The water of Hell flows beneath it. Rivers like Sadeed and Hameem flow beneath it. They will never be able to come out of Hell. They won’t be able to come out of the filth coming out of the genitals of an adulteress, Hutama, Saqar etc. Whenever I pass by this mountain, I halt and see these people cry and seek help. However they did not think of anything while martyring my father. I tell them that this is the result of their deeds. When they had power, they did not care about us. When they got the kingdom, they martyred us, denied us our rights and trespassed them. They did injustice as per their wish without caring for us. ‘May Allah never forgive one who has a soft corner in his heart for you. Taste the fruits of your deeds. Allah does not do injustice to any servant.’”

Yaqoob bin Sulaiman narrates that the discussion of the martyrdom of Imam Husain (a.s.) was going on one night. A person said that all who took part in the martyrdom of Imam Husain (a.s.) had to face some loss either of life or of wealth. An old man interrupted, “I took part in the martyrdom of Imam Husain (a.s.) but I didn’t have to face any calamity.” People felt really bad upon hearing this. Suddenly an oil lamp tumbled and he went to put it up properly. His hands caught fire and were burnt. Then the fire reached his beard and he ran towards water and jumped into the river but fire had already engulfed his head. When he was taken out of the river, this cursed one was completely burnt to death.

Qasim bin Asbagh bin Nubatah narrates that had seen a handsome and fair man from Bani Darim. He had been involved in the martyrdom of Imam Husain (a.s.) and after that become extremely ugly and black. Qasim asked him, “It was very difficult for me to recognize you. What is wrong with your skin?” He replied, “I had martyred a handsome youth of Imam Husain (a.s.), his forehead had the marks of prostrations. Then I took his head with me (and I became black from that time).” Qasim says that he had seen that person extremely glad while killing. He was riding a horse and had hung the head on his horse. The head was hitting the legs of the horse again and again and moving around. Qasim had told his father, “He should have tied the head a little higher. Don’t you see how badly it is hitting the legs?” His father replied, “O piece of my heart! These people have done much more oppression than this one, which has moved you so much.” The killer says, “From the time I have murdered, this martyr comes in my dreams continuously, holds my shoulder and asks me to come and takes me towards Hell and throws me inside it.” Qasim narrates that he heard the wife of the killer say, “We have to hear his rubbish till morning and cannot sleep till daybreak.” Qasim says that a few persons from her tribe came to her and asked about him. She told them that he himself had done so and what he told was right.

Amirul Momineen (a.s.) narrates that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said The head of Imam Husain (a.s.) smeared with blood will be brought to Fatima Zahra (s.a.). She will cry out, “O peace of my heart! O Fruit of my heart.” Angels will lose consciousness on hearing the cries of Fatima and the gathered people will call out, “O Fatima! May Allah kill those who martyred your son.” Allah will say, “I will take revenge from those who martyred Husain (a.s.) in front of your lovers, Shias and followers.” Fatima will be mounted on a mount of Paradise, having a beautiful forehead, white face, black eyes, head made of pure gold and neck made of amber. Its rein will be of green satins. It will be decorated with jewels and its saddle wrapped with divine light. There will be divine mercy in it. Its one step will be equal to a farsakh of this world. Seventy thousand angels will surround this mount and glorify the Lord of both this world and the hereafter saying Laa ilaaha illallaahu Allaahu akbar. A caller will call out from Divine throne: “O people! Lower your gaze; for this is Fatima, the daughter of Muhammad (s.a.w.s.). She wants to pass by the Sirat Bridge.” Fatima and her followers will pass by the Bridge with great speed. The enemies of Fatima and her progeny will be thrown into Hell.

Indeed when the progeny of Abu Sufyan martyred Imam Husain (a.s.), the Almighty Allah snatched their power from them. When Hisham martyred Zaid bin Ali, Allah took away power from him also. Similarly when Walid martyred Yahya bin Zaid, the Almighty Allah took away his power as punishment.
