Kaseer b. Taariq: I asked Zaid b. Ali b. Husain (son of the Fourth Imam (a.s)) about this verse, “(It shall be said to them) Do not call for one death but call for many deaths on this day” (Surah Furqan (25):14).
Zaid b. Ali b. Husain (a.s) replied: O Kaseer! You are a righteous man now and you are not of those described In this verse but I am worried about your future.
On the Day of Judgement, people will be ordered to follow the person whom they
followed in this life. So if the person they followed goes to Hell they will follow
him to Hell, and then they will start to weep about their destruction and doom.
They will tell the person whom they followed, “Get us out of here just like you led
And they will be told, “Do not call for one death but call for many deaths on this
day” (Surah Furqan (25):14).
I heard my father, Ali b. Husain (a.s), narrate from his father, Husain b. Ali, from his father, Ameerul Momineen (a.s.), from the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.a.), who said, “O Ali! You and your companions will be in Paradise. O Ali! You and your followers will be in Paradise.”
