Narrated of the Sheikh, the jurist, Alee, son of Mudhahir al-Wasiti, in a coherent and consistent chain of narrators, of Muhammad, son of Alaa' al-Hamadani al-Wasiti, and Yahya, son of Jurayh al-Baghdadi, who both said: "We quarreled on the matter of the son of Al-Khattab, and we became uncertain of his matter, so we all went to Ahmad, son of Ishaq al-Qummi, the companion of Al-Askari (a.s) in the city of Qom, and we knocked his door. An Iraqi girl came out of his house and we asked her of him. She said: "He is busy with his family, because this is an Eid." So we said: "Glory be to Allah! The Eids for the Shi'a are four: Al-Adha, and Al-Fitr, and the Day of Ghadeer, and Friday." She said: "Ahmad narrates of his master, Abil-Hassan Alee, son of Muhammad al-Askari (a.s), that this is an Eid and it is the best Eid for Ahlulbayt (a.s) and their befrienders." We said: "Then ask him to give us permission to enter into him and tell him where we are." So she went into him and told him where we are, and then he went out to us while wearing one of his aprons and holding closely on to a cloak and wiping his face, and we criticized him for doing so. He said: "Do not do so, because I have made an ablution for the Eid." We said: "Is this a day of Eid?" That day was the ninth day of the month of Rabi'ul-Awwal. He said: "Yes!" Then he let us into his house and we sat on one of his beds.

He said: "Once I went to our Master, Abal-Hassan al-Askari (a.s) with a group of my brothers in Samarrah, and we asked him for his permission to let us enter his house on that day, which was the ninth day of the month of Rabi'ul-Awwal. Our Master (a.s) had commanded every one of his servants to wear any of the new clothes they have, and between his hands was a vessel and he was burning the wood by himself. We said: 'May our fathers and mothers be sacrificed for you, O son of Allah's Messenger! Are you renewing a joy for Ahlulbayt (a.s)?" He said: "Which day has a bigger sanctity for Ahlulbayt (a.s) than this day? I have been told by my father (may peace be upon him) that Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman
, entered into my grandfather, the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's blessings be upon him and his family) on a day such as this, which is the ninth of the month of Rabi'ul-Awwal, and he said:

'Then I saw my Master, the Commander of the Faithful, with his two sons, Hassan and Hussain (may peace be upon them both), who were eating together with the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's blessings be upon him and his family) while the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's blessings be upon him and his family) was smiling in their faces (may peace be upon them). He said to his two sons, Hassan and Hussain (may peace be upon them both): 'Eat, may you enjoy the blessings of this day, in which Allah (Exalted is He) shall bring to death His enemy and the enemy of your grandfather. Eat! It is the day in which the following of Allah's Word is fulfilled: So such were their houses, fallen down, because they were unjust. Holy Qur'aan { 27:53}. Eat! It is the day in which the spine of your grandfather's enemy shall be broken. Eat! It is the day in which the Pharaoh against my Household, and their oppressor, and usurper of their right, shall be gone. Eat! It is the day in which Allah will destroy all they have strived for and make it go down the drain.'

Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman said: 'O Messenger of Allah (saw) will there be anyone in your nation and companions who will violate this sanctity?' He (may Allah's blessings be upon him and his family) said: 'O Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman an idolater among the hypocrites will become their leader, and he will use deliberate pretencion with my nation, and he will call them to himself, and he will carry a pearl of disgrace on his neck, and he will repel people off the path of Allah, and corrupt His Book (distort the meaning), and change my tradition, and he will gather on the inheritance of my sons, and he will nominate himself as a sign, and he will cross the limit on those after me, and he will make lawful for himself the property of Allah while they are not lawful (for him), and he will spend them in ways that are not in obedience to Him, and he will reject my brother and my minister, and he will keep my daughter away from her right, and she will ask Allah to curse him, and he will answer her prayer in a day such as this.

Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman said: 'I said: O Messenger of Allah (saw) why do you not pray to your Lord to make him die during your lifetime?' He (saw) said: ' O Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman, I do not want to go against the decision of Allah (swt) for what He knows with His knowledge. However, I have asked Allah to make the day in which he will die to be preferred over other days so that this may be a tradition whom my lovers and the Shi'a of my Household and their lovers shall follow. He (Glorious is He) revealed the following to me:

"O Muhammad, I have known beforehand that you and your Household shall be rammed by the calamities and trials of the material world, and by the oppression of the hypocrites and usurpers after me, those whom you have advised and they will betray you in return, and those towards whom you have been sincere and they will swindle you in return, and those whom you have purified and they will antagonise you in return, and those whom you have believed and they will reject you in return, and those whom you have saved and they will hand you over in return.

I swear on My Power, and Strength, and Authority, that I will open for the soul of those who usurp the right of Alee (a.s) after you; a thousand doors of fire from the lowest part of Al-Failouq, and I will burn him along with his companions in the deepest part (of Hellfire) to such a degree that Iblees will be treated better than him and curse him! And I will make that hypocrite an example on the Resurrection for the Pharaohs of the Prophets and the enemies of religion on the place where all shall be gathered, and I will gather them and their allies and all oppressors and hypocrites in the fires of Hell, stabbed, gloomy, humiliated, disgraceful, regretful! And I will make them abide there for ever. O Muhammad (saw) your successor will not have the same rank as you unless by the disasters he will face from his Pharaoh and usurper who crosses the limit against Me, and changes My Words, and polytheists in Me, and repels people off My path, and nominates for himself a calf to your nation, and disbelieves in Me in My Throne. Indeed, I have commanded my Seven Heavens, for your Shi'a and your lovers, to celebrate on this day in which I shall take his life, and I have commanded them to construct the chair of My Honor in front of the Bait al-Ma'mour and praise Me, and to ask forgiveness for your Shi'a and your lovers among the sons of Adam (a.s).

And I have commanded the Honored Recorders who write down your deeds to stop their pens from writing the deeds of all the creation three days after that day, and to not write anything of their wrongdoings in honor to you and your successor. O Muhammad (saw), I have made that day become a day of joy for you and your Household (a.s), and those of their Shi'a who follow them, and I have sworn, with My Honor, and Glory, and Height in My position, that I shall grace everyone who celebrates that day with the same reward as the people between the Eastern and the Western horizons, and I shall give salvation to his relatives and close family through him, and I shall increase his property, and I shall free from the Fire in every place of it on a day such as this a thousand of your befrienders and your Shi'a, and I shall make their efforts praiseworthy, and their sins forgiven, and their deeds accepted.'

Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman said: 'Thereupon the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's blessings be upon him and his family) stood up to Umm Salama (a.s), and he entered, and she stepped back from him while I was undoubtful about the matter of the old man, who took the leadership after the demise of the Prophet (may Allah's blessings be upon him and his family) and brought the disbelief once more, and apostatised from the religion, and turned up to leadership, and corrupted the Qur'aan, and burnt the House of the Revelation, and innovated new traditions, and changed the religion, and changed the tradition, and rejected the testimony of the Commander of the Faithful (a.s), and belied Faatima s.a), and usurped Fadak, and made the Zoroastrians, and the Jews, and the Christians become pleased of him, and he angered the Family of the Chosen One and he didn't please them, and he changed all the traditions, and he arranged for the Commander of the Faithful (a.s) to be killed, and he made visible his tyranny, and he forbade what Allah had made lawful, and he made lawful what Allah had forbidden, and he told the people to take the skins of camels as money, and he hit the face of the Pure Woman, and he climbed the pulpit of Allah's Messenger (a.s) forcibly and unjustly, and he slandered the Commander of the Faithful (a.s) and was stubborn to him and made a fool of his opinion.'

Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman said: 'Allah then answered the prayer of my Mistress (s.a) against that hypocrite, and he made his killing go on the hand of his killer (may Allah have mercy upon him), so I entered upon the Commander of the Faithful (may peace be upon him) to congratulate him for his death and for his return to the place of revenge. Then he said to me: 'O Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman I remember that day when I entered upon my Master, the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's blessings be upon him) while I and his two grandsons where eating with him. By Allah, this is the day in which Allah made The Messenger's Family happy, and I know 72 names of this day.' Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman said: 'I said: 'O Commander of the Faithful! I want you to name the names of this day for me.'

Then he (may peace be upon him) said: 'This is the day of rest, and the day in which blessings are dispersed, and the second Day of Ghadeer, and the day in which burdens are toppled, and the day that is the very best, and the day in which the pen is stopped from writing, and the day of progress, and the day of wellness, and the day of blessings, and the day of revenge, and the greatest joyful day for Allah, and the day in which prayers are answered, and the day of the greatest stand, and the day in which things come together, and the day of Al-Shart (the name of a star), and the day in which darkness are removed, and the day in which the oppressor is regretful, and the day in which the spine is broken, and the day in which the suffering is ended, and the day in which human beings are pleased with what they have, and the day in which the power is presented, and the day in which pages are turn over, and the day of the Shi'as' joy, and the day of repentance, and the day of approval, and the day of the greatest Zakat, and the second Day of Fitr, and the day in which the water on mountain paths flow, and the day in which the salvia is swallowed, and the day of pleasure, and the joyful day of Ahlulbayt, and the day of prevail over the sons of Isra'il, and the day in which deeds are accepted, and the day in which charity is given, and the day of Ziyarah, and the day in which hypocrisy was killed, and the day of the known time, and the day of Ahlulbayt's happiness, and the day of testimony, and the day of the enemy's defeat, and the day in which deception is destroyed, and the day of awakening, and the day of cooness, and the day of the testification, and the day in which the believers are forgiven, and the day of Al-Zahra, and the day of informing, and the day in which things are good, and the day of departure, and the day in which things are intensified, and the day in which a believer is joyful, and the day of Al-Mubahala, and the day of magnificence, and the day in which deeds are accepted, and the day of majesty, and the day in which secrets are spread publicly, and the day of adherence, and the day in which victory is increased, and the day of expressing love and affection, and the day of making jokes, and the day of arrival, and the day of purification, and the day in which innovations are revealed, and the day of asceticism, and the day of piety, and the day of preachment, and the day of worship, and the day of surrender, and the day of submission, and the day of slaughter, and the day of ripping.'

Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman said: 'Then I went from him and I said in myself: If I had not known any good deeds and the things that I perform when I want rewards except for this day, then this day would surely have been my wish.'" Muhammad, son of Al-Alaa' al-Hamadani, and Yahya, son of Jurayh, said: «Thereupon everyone of us stood up and kissed the head of Ahmad, son of Ishaq, son of Sa'eed al-Qummi, and we said: "Praise be to Allah who decided for you for us so that you could honor us with the merits of this day." Then we left him, and we celebrated that day.

Footnote: Al-Majlisi II: "Al-Sayyed Razzi ul Deen son of Ibn Tawoos said: "I have narrated it from the hand writing of Muhammad ibn Alee ibn Muhammad ibn Tay (r.a) and we have found in what we read from the books several narrations in consent with this narration (about Eid on the day of 9th Rabi Al Awwal). So we relied upon it. thus we should respect this day being referred to (9th Rabi Al-Awwal) and show/display happiness in it.
