'May the eye not be cool that does not cry over Mohsin b. Ali'
Mufazzal b. Umar (r.a.) in a lengthy tradition from Imam Jafar Sadiq (a.s.) relates -
وَ يَأْتِي مُحَسِّنٌ تَحْمِلُهُ خَدِيجَةُ بِنْتُ خُوَيْلِدٍ وَ فَاطِمَةُ بِنْتُ أَسَدٍ أُمُّ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ع وَ هُنَّ صَارِخَاتٌ وَ أُمُّهُ فَاطِمَةُ تَقُولُ هذا يَوْمُكُمُ الَّذِي كُنْتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ الْيَوْمَ تَجِدُ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ما عَمِلَتْ مِنْ خَيْرٍ مُحْضَراً وَ ما عَمِلَتْ مِنْ سُوءٍ تَوَدُّ لَوْ أَنَّ بَيْنَها وَ بَيْنَهُ أَمَداً بَعِيداً
On the Day of Resurrection, Khadijah b. Khuwailid and Fatima b. Asad, the mother of Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) will come forth carrying Muhassin (Mohsin). They will be shrieking while his (Mohsin’s) mother – Fatima (s.a.), will be reciting the verse, “This is your Day, which you were promised.”- Ambiya (21): 103 (and the verse) (Remember) The Day (of Judgement) when every soul shall find present whatever it has wrought of good; and whatever it has wrought of evil, it will wish that the distance between it and himself was wide.” Ale Imran (2): 30).
قَالَ فَبَكَى الصَّادِقُ ع حَتَّى اخْضَلَّتْ لِحْيَتُهُ بِالدُّمُوعِ ثُمَّ قَالَ لَا قَرَّتْ عَيْنٌ لَا تَبْكِي عِنْدَ هَذَا الذِّكْرِ قَالَ وَ بَكَى الْمُفَضَّلُ بُكَاءً طَوِيلًا
He (Mufazzal) said: At this Imam Sadiq (a.s.) wept till his beard was soaked with his tears.
Then he (a.s.) said: May the eye not be cool that does not cry over this remembrance (of Mohsin).
And Mufazzal wept for long.
ثُمَّ قَالَ يَا مَوْلَايَ مَا فِي الدُّمُوعِ يَا مَوْلَايَ فَقَالَ مَا لَا يُحْصَى إِذَا كَانَ مِنْ مُحِقٍّ ثُمَّ قَالَ الْمُفَضَّلُ يَا مَوْلَايَ مَا تَقُولُ فِي قَوْلِهِ تَعَالَى وَ إِذَا الْمَوْؤُدَةُ سُئِلَتْ بِأَيِّ ذَنْبٍ قُتِلَتْ قَالَ يَا مُفَضَّلُ وَ الْمَوْؤُدَةُ وَ اللَّهِ مُحَسِّنٌ لِأَنَّهُ مِنَّا لَا غَيْرُ فَمَنْ قَالَ غَيْرَ هَذَا فَكَذِّبُوهُ
Then he (Mufazzal) said: O my master how many tears O my master? Then he (a.s.) said: They cannot be numbered for the one worthy of them.
Then Mufazzal said: O my master what do you say about the verse – “And when the female infant buried alive is asked, for what sin she was killed.” (Takweer (81):8-9).
He (a.s.) said: O Mufazzal the female infant buried alive is Mohsin, by Allah, because he is from us and he is none other, if someone claims he is someone else then he has denied him.
قَالَ الْمُفَضَّلُ يَا مَوْلَايَ ثُمَّ مَا ذَا قَالَ الصَّادِقُ ع تَقُومُ فَاطِمَةُ بِنْتُ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ص فَتَقُولُ اللَّهُمَّ أَنْجِزْ وَعْدَكَ وَ مَوْعِدَكَ لِي فِيمَنْ ظَلَمَنِي وَ غَصَبَنِي وَ ضَرَبَنِي و جَزَعَنِي بِكُلِّ أَوْلَادِي فَتَبْكِيهَا مَلَائِكَةُ السَّمَاوَاتِ السَّبْعِ وَ حَمَلَةُ الْعَرْشِ وَ سُكَّانُ الْهَوَاءِ وَ مَنْ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَ مَنْ تَحْتَ أَطْبَاقِ الثَّرَى صَائِحِينَ صَارِخِينَ إِلَى اللَّهِ تَعَالَى فَلَا يَبْقَى أَحَدٌ مِمَّنْ قَاتَلَنَا وَ ظَلَمَنَا وَ رَضِيَ بِمَا جَرَى عَلَيْنَا إِلَّا قُتِلَ فِي ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمِ أَلْفَ قَتْلَة
Mufazzal said: O my master then what?
Imam Sadiq (a.s.): Fatima (s.a.), daughter of the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) will rise and she will say: O Allah fulfill Your Promise and Undertaking concerning me regarding the one who oppressed me, usurped from me, struck me, made me restless regarding all my children.
Then all angels of the seven heavens and carriers of the Arsh, residents of the atmosphere and all in the world and under the layers of the soil will weep for her with their wailing and shrieking addressed to Allah, the High. Then none will survive from our killers and oppressors and those who were satisfied with what transpired with us except that he will be killed on that day a thousand killings.
Allamah Majlisi (r.a.) in the footnote of the aforementioned tradition: The author estimates that the thousand killings will be more severe than the Fire of Jaheem, we seek refuge in Allah from it. Allah, the High, says: And (as for) those who disbelieve, for them is the fire of hell; it shall not be finished with them entirely (Faatir (35): 36 and it is said they will say - And they shall call out: O Malik! let your Lord make an end of us. (Zukhruf (43): 77). And from what has been narrated there is no way out after Hashr from death. Then it is surprising that these oppressors have been singled out (with a thousand deaths for oppressing those) who were killed in Allah’s Way about whom Allah says – “nay, they are alive” while regarding the oppressors Allah, the High says – “surely the unjust will not be successful”.
