عَنْ اَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنْ اَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِؑ اَنَ‏ حَبَابَةَ الْوَالِبِيَّةَ كَانَ اِذَا وَفَدَ النَّاسُ اِلَى مُعَاوِيَةَ وَفَدَتْ هِيَ اِلَى الْحُسَيْنِؑ وَ كَانَتِ امْرَاَةً شَدِيدَةَ الْاِجْتِهَادِ قَدْ يَبِسَ جِلْدُهَا عَلَى بَطْنِهَا مِنَ الْعِبَادَةِ وَ اَنَّهَا خَرَجَتْ مَرَّةً وَ مَعَهَا ابْنُ عَمٍّ لَهَا غُلَامٌ فَدَخَلَتْ بِهِ عَلَى الْحُسَيْنِؑ فَقَالَتْ لَهُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ فَانْظُرْ هَلْ تَجِدُ ابْنَ عَمِّي هَذَا فِيمَا عِنْدَكُمْ وَ هَلْ تَجِدُهُ نَاجِياً قَالَ فَقَالَ نَعَمْ نَجِدُهُ عِنْدَنَا وَ نَجِدُهُ نَاجِيًا

Abu Baseer reports from Imam Abu Abdillah (al-Sadeq a.s.),

“When people used to go to Moaviyah (Ibn Abi Sufyan) (i.e. for seeking worldly favors), Habbaabah al-Waalebiyyah (r.a.) would visit Imam al-Husain (peace be upon him) (i.e. for seeking the Hereafter). She was a woman of intense struggle. Her stomach skin had become dry to excessive worship. Once, she came out with her young paternal cousin. She brought him to Imam al-Husain (peace be upon him) and asked, ‘May I be held your ransom! See, do you find this cousin of mine in what is with you (i.e. among your followers) and do you find him among the saved ones?’ He (peace be upon him) replied, ‘Yes. We found him with us and we found him among the saved ones’.”
