Radiance from the earth to the heavens
‘Allama Ibn Atheer (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) has related a Tradition:
Translation: After the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with him), the blessed heads of the Imam and other martyrs were sent to Ibn Zyad along with Khauli bin Yazid and Hameed bin Muslim. Khauli found the doors of the palace to be closed. He came to his own house.
He placed the blessed head of the Imam under a big vessel and approached his bed to take rest. He told his wife, whose name was Nawaar: I have brought great worldly wealth. The head of Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with him) is along with you in this house. The pious wife said: It is a pit of hell for you. People bring gold and silver and you brought the head of the venerable grandson of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)! By Allah! Your head and mine will never be under the same roof again.
She then left the house. She says: I saw a radiance descending like a pillar (of light) on the vessel. I also saw white birds flying towards it. (Al Kaamil Fit Tareekh, Dhikru Maqtalil Hussain, Pg. No. 178)
