4264.الإمامُ الرِّضا عليه السلام : فَعَلى‏ مِثلِ الحُسَينِ فَليَبكِ الباكونَ ؛ فإنَّ البُكاءَ عَلَيهِ يَحُطُّ الذُّنوبَ العِظامَ . ... كانَ أبي عليه السلام إذا دَخَلَ شَهرُ المُحَرَّمِ لا يُرى‏ ضاحِكاً ، وكانَتِ الكَآبَةُ تَغلِبُ عَلَيهِ حَتّى‏ تَمضِيَ عَشرَةُ أيّامٍ ، فإذا كانَ يَومُ العاشِرِ كانَ ذلكَ اليَومُ يَومَ مُصيبَتِهِ وحُزنِهِ وبُكائهِ ، ويَقولُ : هُوَ اليَومُ الَّذي قُتِلَ فيهِ الحُسَينُ عليه السلام 

Imam al-Rida (AS) said,

 ‘Let the weepers weep over someone like Husayn, for verily weeping over him reduces the burden of great sins. Then he continued, saying, ‘As soon as the month of Muharram would set in, my father (AS) was never seen laughing and he would be overcome by melancholy until after the first ten days had passed. When the tenth day dawned, it was a day of grief and sorrow and crying for him, and he used to say, ‘This is the day when al-Husayn (AS) was martyred.’

Wasa'il al - Shia, v. 1. p. 394. no. 8


From The Bible, Jeremiah 46:10 :

But that day belongs to the Lord, the LORD Almighty-- a day of vengeance, for vengeance on his foes. The sword will devour till it is satisfied, till it has quenched its thirst with blood. For the Lord, the LORD Almighty, will offer sacrifice in the land of the north by the River Euphrates.


The great Imam Husayn(as) attempted to drink from the Euphrates River but got an arrow shot in his neck.
