The frightful end of those who took part in the Martyrdom of Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu

Abu Shaykh narrates that whoever took part or assisted in the martyrdom of Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho, each and everyone became victims of some tragedy.

Once, an old man proudly boasted that nothing had ever happened to him. When he was trying to set a light, suddenly fire engulfed him. He began to scream, “Fire, fire” and jumped into the Tigris. However, he could not manage to put off the fire until finally he went to his final destination which was the fire of hell.

Mansoor bin Ammar narrates that

The killers of Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho became victims of such immense thirst that no matter how much they drank, they could not quench their thirst.

Sadmi narrates that

“A person once invited him to Karbala and people were speaking among themselves that whoever was responsible for the martyrdom of Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho had died a disgraceful death. The person who had invited me declared that he had also been involved in this and that nothing had ever happened to him. The following night, while he was preparing a fire, suddenly the fire engulfed him and he was burnt beyond recognition”. The narrator admits that when he saw the body, it was burnt to ashes.

Imam Zuhri admits that,

“Some were killed, some became blind and the faces of some became black.”

Imam Waaqidi narrates that,

“There was once an old man who was present during this incident but was not involved. Suddenly he became blind. When he was asked the reason for this, he replied that he had seen the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon Him in his dream. The sleeve of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon Him was folded and in his blessed hand was a sword. In front of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon Him, ten of the killers of Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho lay dead. He then turned to the old man and said angrily, “By been present, you had increased their numbers. He then placed a drop of the blood of Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho on my eye and when I awoke, I found that I was blind.”

Sabat ibn al-Joza narrates that

“The person who had hung the blessed head of Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho on his horse, after a few days, his face became blacker than coal. When people asked him the reason for this and also mentioned to him that his face used to always look bright and fresh, he replied that, ‘Every night, two people approach me and grabbing me by my shoulders, they throw me into a flaming fire with my head over the fire. The flames continue to lick away at my face.’ It is said that he had a very bad death.”

An old man admits that

Once he saw the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon Him in a dream in front of which there was a tray of blood. People were then presented to the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon Him and each person is stained with this blood. When this old man approached the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon Him, he admitted that, “I was not present.” However, the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon Him replied, “But this is what you wished in your heart.” The Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon Him then pointed at him with his right index finger and in the morning, he found that he was blind.

Imam Haakim narrates that once the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon Him declared to Jibreel-e-Ameen,

“Almighty Allah has declared that in retaliation for the death of Nabi Yahya bin Zakariyah, I have killed seventy thousand and in revenge for Hussain Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho, I have killed seventy thousand and another seventy thousand.” [Al Mustadrak, Vol. 3, Page 485, Hadith no. 4408]

All praise is due to Almighty Allah in that He has taken his retribution from ibn Ziyad for the sake of Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho. It is stated that when he was killed with his companions, all their heads were placed and people came to see. The narrator declares that,

“I saw a snake suddenly appear. After going through all the heads, it finally came to the unclean head of ibn Ziyad.  It went through one nostril opening and appeared through the other nostril. This continued for a few times.”

Mansoor narrates that,

“I saw a person in Syria once whose face resembled that of a pig. When I asked him the reason, he replied, that, ‘I used to curse Hadrat Ali and his pure family. One night, I saw the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon Him in my dream and Imam Hasan Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho complained about him. The Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon Him cursed him and spat on his face. Suddenly his face took the shape of a pig.”
