It was narrated to me by Moammed bin al-ussain bin Amed bin al-Walīd رحمه الله who said – it was narrated to us by al-ussain bin ‘Ābān, from al-ussain bin Saʿīd, from al-Qāsim bin Moammed, from ‘Isāq ibn Harūn, from Harūn bin amza al-Ghanawi[1] who said:

I heard al-Ṣādiq, Jaʿfar bin Moḥammed عليه السلام say: Allāh, Blessed and High, designated four thousand angels at the grave of al-Ḥussain عليه السلام, covered in dust, crying until the Day of Judgement. Whoever visits, knowing his rights, they escort him until they reach a secure place. If he were to fall ill, they attent to him from early morning until evening. If he were to die, they are present at his funeral and seek forgiveness for him until the Day of Judgement.

[1] The last two narrators that are mentioned here are complete unknowns, ‘Isḥāq ibn Harūn, from Harūn bin Ḥamza al-Ghanawi. This hadith is narrated to us by al-Ṣadūq many times in this book and other books, and the chain has (instead of these two): from ‘Isḥāq bin Ibrāhīm, from Harūn bin al-Khārijah. On the apparent, it seems as this variant is the correct chain. See Ḥadīth 8 from the 69th Assembly of al-Āmāli.

حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد (رحمه الله)، قال: حدثنا الحسين بن الحسن بن أبان، عن الحسين بن سعيد، عن القاسم بن محمد، عن إسحاق ابن هارون، عن هارون بن حمزة الغنوي، قال: سمعت الصادق جعفر بن محمد (عليه السلام) يقول: وكل الله تبارك وتعالى بقبر الحسين (عليه السلام) أربعة آلاف ملك، شعثا غبرا، يبكونه إلى يوم القيامة، فمن زاره عارفا بحقه شيعوه حتى يبلغوه مأمنه، وإن مرض عادوه غدوة وعشيا، وإن مات شهدوا جنازته واستغفروا له إلى يوم القيامة
