عَنْ دَاوُدَ الرَّقِّيِّ قَالَ: كُنْتُ عِنْدَ اَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ ع اِذَا اسْتَسْقَى الْمَاءَ فَلَمَّا شَرِبَهُ رَاَيْتُهُ قَدِ اسْتَعْبَرَ وَ اغْرَوْرَقَتْ‏ عَيْنَاهُ بِدُمُوعِهِ ثُمَّ قَالَ لِي يَا دَاوُدُ- لَعَنَ اللهُ قَاتِلَ الْحُسَيْنِ ع وَ مَا مِنْ عَبْدٍ شَرِبَ الْمَاءَ فَذَكَرَ الْحُسَيْنَ ع وَ اَهْلَ بَيْتِهِ وَ لَعَنَ قَاتِلَهُ اِلَّا كَتَبَ اللهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ لَهُ مِائَةَ اَلْفِ حَسَنَةٍ وَ حَطَّ عَنْهُ مِائَةَ اَلْفِ سَيِّئَةٍ وَ رَفَعَ لَهُ مِائَةَ اَلْفِ دَرَجَةٍ وَ كَاَنَّمَا اَعْتَقَ مِائَةَ اَلْفِ نَسَمَةٍ وَ حَشَرَهُ اللهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ثَلِجَ الْفُؤَادِ.

Dawood al-Raqqi reports, “I was with (Imam) Abu Abdillah (al-Sadeq a.s.) when he sought water to drink. When he drank it, I saw him crying copious and his eyes were drowned in tears. Thereafter, he (peace be upon him) told me. ‘O Dawood! May Allah curse the killer of Husain (peace be upon him). Whenever a person drinks water and remembers Husain (peace be upon him) and his Ahle Bait (peace be upon them) and curses his killer, Allah – Mighty and Majestic be He – will write for him a hundred thousand good deeds, remove from him a hundred thousand sins and raise him a hundred thousand degrees. Moreover, it is as if he has freed a hundred thousand slaves and Allah – Mighty and Majestic be He -will raise him on the Day of Judgment with a joyous heart’.”
