Azadari in Ahadith


The Inferno of Husayni Love

قال النبيٌُّ (ص):

إن لقتل الحُسين حرارةٌ في قلوب المؤمنين لا تبرد أبداً

The Holy Prophet (S) said: Surely, there exists in the hearts of the Mu'mineen, with respect to the martyrdom of Husayn (A.S.), a heat that never subsides. Mustadrak al‑Wasail vol 10 pg. 318

A'ashura ‑ A Day of Grief

Imam Ridha’ (A.S.) said:

قال الرضا (ع):

مَن كان يوم عاشوراء يوم مُصيبته وحُزنه وبُكائه يجعل الله عزَّ وجل يوم القيامة يوم فرحه وسروره

The one for whom the day of A'ashura is a day of tragedy, grief and weeping, Allah The Mighty, The Glorious, shall make the Day of Judgment, a day of joy and happiness for him.Bihar al‑Anwar, vol. 44, pg. 284

Muharram ,The Month of Mourning

Imam Ridha’ (A.S.) said:

قال الرضا (ع):

كان أبي (ع) إذا دخل شهر المُحرَّم لا يُرى ضاحِكاً وكانت الكابة تغلب عليه حتَّى تمضي عشرة أيَّام فإذا كان يوم العاشر كان ذلك يوم مصيبَته وحُزنه وبُكائه

With the advent of the month of Muharram, my father Imam Kadhim (A.S.) would never be seen laughing; gloom and sadness would overcome him for (the first) ten days of the month; and when the tenth day of the month would dawn, it would be a day of tragedy, grief and weeping for him.  Amaali Saduq, pg. 111

Laughing Eyes

The Holy Prophet (S) said:

قال النبيُّ (ص):

يا فاطمة كلُّ عينٍ باكية يوم القيامة إلاَّ عينٌ بكَت على مُصاب الحُسين (ع) فإنها ضاحِكة مُستبشرة بنعيم الجنة

O' Fatimah! Every eye shall be weeping on the Day of Judgment except the eye which has shed tears over the tragedy of Husayn (A.S.) for surely, that eye shall be laughing and shall be given the glad tidings of the bounties and comforts of Paradise.  Bihar al‑Anwar, vol. 44 pg. 193.

Reward of the Martyred Companions

قال الرضا (ع):

إن سرَّك أن يكون لك من الثواب مِثلُ ما لمَن استُشهد مع الحُسين فقُل متى ما ذكرته يا ليتني كُنت معهم فأفوز فوزاً عظيما

Imam Ridha’ (A.S.) said (to one of his companions): If you desire that for you be the reward equivalent to that of those martyred along with Husayn (A.S.), then whenever you remember him say: ' Oh! Would that I had been with them! A great achievement would I have achieved'. Wasaail al‑Shia'h, vol. 14, pg. 501.

The Customary Mourning

Abu Haroon al‑Makfoof said:

عن أبي هارون المكفُوف قال دخلتُ على أبي عبد اللهِ فقال لي أنشِدني فأنشدتُه فقال لا كما تُنشدون وكما ترثِيه عند قبرهِ فأنشدتهُ

I presented myself before Imam Sadiq (A.S.) whereupon he said to me: "Recite for me a poetry"and so I recited for him. He said "Not in this manner. Recite for me as you recite poems and elegies over the grave of Husayn (A.S.)" and so I recited for him (again).  Bihar al Anwar vol 44, pg. 287.

Reward for Reciting Poetry about Husayn (A.S.)

Imam Sadiq (A.S.) said:

قال الصادق (ع):

ما مِن أحد قال في الحُسين شِعراً فبكى وأبكى بِه إلاَّ أوجب الله له الجنَّة وغفر لهُ

There is none who recites poetry about Husayn (A.S.) and weeps and makes others weep by means of it, except that Allah makes Paradise incumbent upon him and forgives his sins.  Rijal al‑Shaikh al‑ Tusi pg. 189.

People of Eulogies and Elegies

Imam Sadiq (A.S.) said:

فقال الصادق (ع):

الحمد لله الذي جعل في الناس مَن يفِد إلينا ويمدحُنا ويرثِي لنا

All praise is for Allah, who has placed amongst the people, those who arrive in our presence, eulogizing us and reciting elegies about us.  Wasail al‑Shiah vol. 10, pg. 469.

Poetry Recitation During the Period of Mourning

Imam Ridha’ (A.S.) said (to De'bil, a poet sincerely devoted to the Ahlul Bayt):

قال الرضا (ع):

أُحب أن تُنشدني شعراً فإنَّ هذه الأيام أياَّمُ حُزنٍ كانت علينا أهل البيتِ

I desire that you recite for me poetry, for surely, these days (of the month of Muharram) are the days of grief and sorrow, which have passed over us, Ahlul Bayt.  Mustadrak al‑Wasail, vol 10, pg. 386.

Shiites, The Companions and Associates

Imam 'Ali (A.S.) said:

قال عليٌّ (ع):

إنَّ الله اختار لنا شيعةً ينصُروننا ويَفرحون لِفرحِنا ويحزنون لِحُزنِنا

Surely, Allah has chosen for us followers (Shiites), who assist us and are happy at our happiness and are sad in our sadness.  Ghuraral‑Hikam vol. 1, pg. 135.
