The martydom of Hazrat Abbas (as)

Recommended Posts

Salaam alaikum all,

I am sure you all aware of the circumstances surrounding how Hazrat Abbas (as) was martyred fetching water for Imam Hussain (as) and the children. 

I came across some opposition from Sunni muslims (not directly towards me) questioning the way some of the companions of Imam Hussain (as) were martyred. Particularly with the way Abbas (as) was martyred. The claim is that circumstances surrounding his (as) martyrdom are deliberately exaggerated to make people shed tears. They don't question that he was killed trying to get water but the way in which things played out are exaggerated to make people cry and weep.

I decided to do some research and find authentic sources describing the martyrdom of Abbas (as). 

I looked on al-islam.org and found this: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/forum/26-muharram-14392017/

The sources cited for the martyrdom of Abbas (as) is a source called 'Roudhatul Ahbab'

Has anyone heard of this source? Is it authentic? Can anyone direct me to other reliable sources on this subject?

Any help is much appreciated
