Ammar relates from Ibne Abbas – One afternoon I dreamt of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) standing with his hair disheveled and with dust on them. He was holding a phial of blood.
I said – May my parents by sacrificed at you. What are you holding? The Prophet
(s.a.w.a.) informed – I am holding this phial filled with the blood of my son and his companions that I have been collecting all the day long.
I remembered that day and when the news of Husain’s (a.s.) martyrdom reached us,
I corresponded that day with the day I had dreamt about the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and realized
that it was the same day.
