The genies express their sorrow
Even the creation whom we cannot see expressed their sorrow. Thus, it has been mentioned in Traditions that the genies expressed their sorrow and the human beings heard this, as Imam Ibn Katheer has written in Al Bidayah Wan Nihayah:
Translation: There are many Traditions about Karbala narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Ka’ab Ahbaar and Abul Janaab Kalbi has said the people of Karbala continuously heard the crying of genie and they heard them recite couplets that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) had kissed his forehead and his cheeks are radiant with the light of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). The parents of Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with him) are the elite of the Quraish and his maternal grandfather is the best of all. (Bidayah Wan Nihayah, Hadith No. 1686)
All these Traditions make is clear that not only human beings but genie, animals, birds, plants and every other creation felt the sorrow of the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with him).
