Meeting between Habeeb bin Muzhaahir and Meesam-e-Tammar

imam hussein (a.s)

It is related in Manhajul Maqal from Shaikh Kashshi, who relates through his chain of transmitters reaching Fazl bin Zubayr, who relates that one day Meesam was mounted on his horse when he passed by Habeeb bin Muzhaahir Asadi, who was near a group of the people of Bani Asad. They started speaking to one another in a manner that the necks of their horses had joined each other. Habeeb said, "Verily I see an old man with who sells watermelon near Darur Rizq. He shall be hanged because of his love for the Prophet’s Household (Ahl-ul-Bayt) (A.S) and his stomach shall be punctured on the gallows itself." Meesam said, "I too recognize a red-faced man who has two long tresses, he shall go to defend and aid the grandson of the Prophet and shall be killed, while his severed head will be paraded in Kufa." Saying this they both departed from one another. The people who were present there and heard their conversation said, "We have never seen greater liars than these two." Now they had not yet dispersed when Rushayd Hajari came to search them (Meesam and Habeeb) and asked the people their whereabouts. The people said that they had left and related to him their conversation. Rushayd said, "May Allah’s blessings be upon Meesam, he forgot to say one sentence, that the one who gets the severed head to Kufa will get a reward of a hundred dirham", saying this he left. When people heard him they said, "Verily he is a greater liar than them." These people then say that after a lapse of some days we saw Meesam on the gallows near the house of Amr bin Hurays, and the severed head of Habeeb bin Muzhaahir being paraded in Kufa after he was martyred along with Imam Hussein (A.S). Thus we witnessed with our own eyes whatever those men had predicted.

Meesam says that one day Imam Ali (A.S) called me and said:

"What will be your state at that time O Meesam, when the man, whose father is not known, but the Bani Umayyah has included him among them (viz. Ubaydullah bin Ziyad) will call you and order you to disassociate yourself from me?"

I said, "O Commander of the faithful! By Allah! I shall never disassociate myself from you." He said,

"In that case you shall be killed and hanged on the gallows."

I retorted, "By Allah! I shall forebear, while this is quite insignificant in the way of Allah." Imam said,

"O Meesam! You shall then be along with me in my status (in Paradise)."
