salam aleykum

there is this question that has been bothering me for quiet a long time.

how did the ahlul bait deal with the loss or death of a loved one? how did they stop the pain etc etc... I mean we are all going to lose or have lost our parents at some point in our lives. Not just parents but a sibling or a spouse or whomever we think is the close to us.

how do we deal with it? how do we deal with it so it is less painful, less stressful, etc.. and what is the islamic way of dealing with such a situation?

thank you

yes can someone knowledgeable enlighten us.

I have heard an interpretation that Imam Hussein(a.s.) was jubilant in his heart at his death and not sad .Forgive me if I am wrong at mentioning an incorrect fact about such a holy personality in public.

The Imams (as) have unlimited patience but yes they feel more pain then we do (my interpretation) since when they lose a love ones its sincere sadness. Not like how we feel if we lose our parents we feel as if who will take care of us etc.

but didn't they see that once someone passed away, they didn't really die, they just went from one form to another form? wouldn't they see the other side aswell? we tend to hurt a lot when we lose someone because we don't have proper faith. we don't really see what is on the other side, but they do. so I guess it shouldn't be as painful as it is for us.

wa alaykom salam

Knowing of what is to come after one dies don't change the fact of missing that person.

i did some googling Allahu allam about these ahadith and the rijal aspect.

http://researchintoo...-of-ismail.html

here are two of the ahadith mentioned in that blog

Narrated to us Ali bin Ahmad bin Muhammad Waqqaq: Narrated to us Muhammad bin Abdullah Kufi that he said: Narrated to us Muhammad bin Ismail Barmaki from Husain bin Haitham from Abbad bin Yaqoob Asadi from Anba bin Bajjad Abid that he said:

“When Ismail bin Ja’far bin Muhammad died and we finished his funeral ceremonies, Imam Sadiq Ja’far bin Muhammad (a.s.) sat down and we sat in his company. After a while the Imam raised his head and said: O people, indeed this world is an abode of separation. It is an unsuitable place and not suitable, separation from a close one is such a tragedy that cannot be forgotten and it is such a sorrow that cannot be dispelled and people are superior to each other in the matter of observing a nice way of mourning and right contemplation. Thus one who does not have to mourn for his brother will have to taste death. After that Imam (a.s.) recited the couplet of Abu Kharash Dauzali that he had composed while mourning for the death of his brother:

Narrated to us Muhammad bin Hasan bin Ahmad bin Walid, who said: narrated to us Muhammad bin Hasan Saffar narrating from Ayyub bin Nuh and Yaqoob bin Yazid from Ibne Abi Umair from Muhammad bin Shuaib from Abi Kahmas that he said:

I was present at the time of Ismail’s death, while Abu Abdillah Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) was sitting near him. When he died, Imam (a.s.) tied up his jaws and covered his face with a piece of cloth. Then he ordered that he should be given the funeral bath and shrouded. After this was accomplished he called for his shroud cloth and wrote on its periphery: Ismail testifies that there is no god except Allah.
