The Mourning of the Entire Creation over Imam Hussain (عليه السلام)

Imam Jafar Sadiq (asws) narrates:

“O Zurarah! The heavens wept blood for forty days over Hussain (عليه السلام), the Earth wept by being covered in darkness for forty days, the sun wept by being eclipsed and turning red, the mountains were rent asunder and dispersed, the seas swelled and surged, and the angels  wept for forty days over Him. After Hussain (عليه السلام) was martyred, all of Our Women (sa) abandoned dying and adorning their hair and applying kohl and oil until the head of ubaidullah (la) ibn ziyad (la) was  brought to us, but even after that we continued to mourn over him. Whenever my Grandfather (Imam Zainul Abideen (عليه السلام) would remember Hussain (عليه السلام),  He would weep so immensely that His beard would become wet from his tears and all those around Him would begin to weep. The angels stationed by the grave of Hussain (عليه السلام) weep over him so profusely that all of the angels in the heavens begin to weep at the sight of their tears. When the soul of  Hussain (عليه السلام) departed, hellfire released such a mournful sigh that the Earth was almost split in two. When the souls of ubaidullah (la) ibn ziyad (la) and yazid (la) ibn muawiyah (la) departed their bodies, hellfire roared so intensely that if Allah had not ordered it to be  contained it would have burned everyone upon the Earth. Hellfire became so violent due to  its being restrained that more than once it almost broke free from its keepers’ hold. Finally, Jibrael (عليه السلام) went to it and hit it with his wings and only then did hellfire become calm. Hellfire mourns and weeps over Hussain (عليه السلام) and its fires burn brightly upon the killers of Hussain (عليه السلام). If it were not for the Hujjat (proofs) of Allah upon the Earth, then hellfire would have destroyed the Earth and all that is on it. For this reason, the Earth shall quake increasingly as the Hour draws near. There are no eyes and no tears more loved by Allah than those eyes that wept and those tears that were shed over Hussain (عليه السلام). Whosoever weeps over Hussain (عليه السلام) becomes associated with Fatima (sa), supports Her in Her grief and becomes associated with Rasool Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and becomes a fulfiller of Our rights. On the Day of Judgment, all will be resurrected weeping except for those who shed tears over My Grandfather, Imam Hussain (عليه السلام). Those who wept over Him will receive glad tidings when they are resurrected. Joy and happiness will emanate from their faces and they will feel comfort while others will feel fear. Those who committed bad deeds will be punished while those who have wept over Hussain (عليه السلام) will be sitting with Him under the shade of the Arsh. They will be conversing with Hussain (عليه السلام) without any fear from the trials of the Day of Judgment. They will be told to enter Jannah but they will refuse. Instead preferring to sit with Hussain (عليه السلام) to listen to His words. Then the hooris of Jannah will send after them and say “We and “the youths that never age” (Qur'an 56:17) are waiting for you”. However, they will not even turn their faces towards the hooris because the happiness and honor they feel while sitting in the presence of Hussain (عليه السلام). On that day, some of their enemies will be pulled by their heads towards hellfire while others will cry out, “Neither have any intercessors nor any true friend” (Qur'an 26:100-101). The enemies will see the position of those who wept over Hussain (عليه السلام) but they will not be able to reach them or go near them. The angels will bring messages to those who have cried over Hussain (عليه السلام) from their  spouses and their servants, informing them of the blessings that have been prepared for them in Jannah. But they will reply, “We shall come to you inshaAllah.” The angels will then inform their spouses of their reply. When their spouses hear of the way they have been honored and their nearness to Hussain (عليه السلام), their spouses will long for them even more. Those who have wept over Hussain (عليه السلام) will continuously repeat, “Praise be to Allah who protected us from the great terror and the trials of the Day of Judgment and saved us from that which we fear.” Then saddled transports will be brought for them. They will ride to their places in Jannah while praising and glorifying Allah and sending blessings upon Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Aal e Muhammad (عليه السلام).”

Abu Baseer narrates: Imam Jafar Sadiq said: "O’ Abu Baseer! Syeda Fatima (sa) grieves over Hussain (عليه السلام). When hellfire hears Her voice, it sights in such an intense way that if the keepers of Hellfire did not prepare to restrain it, then the Hellfire would burn all of the inhabitants of the Earth with its fires and fumes. The keepers contain it and restrain it by holding its doors tightly closed for as long as Syeda Fatima (sa) weeps. They do this out of fear for the inhabitants of the Earth. Yet Hellfire does not become calm until the voice of Syeda (sa) subsides. The seas strain to split apart and collide when they hear the weeping of Syeda Fatima (sa). There is an angel responsible for every drop of water. When these angels hear the voice of Syeda (sa), they prevent every drop of water from boiling their wings. They keep the water from splitting out of fear for this world and everything in it, especially its inhabitants."

Please mention source of the narration. 

Salaam, the ahadith are from Kamil Al Ziarat (chapter 26) this book written was written by Ibn Qūlawayh who is one the prominent shi'a hadith narrators of the fourth century/tenth century. He is one of the best students of Muhammad b. Ya'qub al-Kulayni and one of the most outstanding teachers of Al-Shaykh al-Mufid. He is one the jurists and theologians who tried to find a middle way between the viewpoints of ahl al-hadith and the scholars of 'ilm al-Kalam (theology).

:bismillah:

May be some one doubt whether heavens & Earth have the capacity to weep for someone, so I am sharing a verse of Qur'an here:

Surah Ad-Dukhan, Verse 29:
فَمَا بَكَتْ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّمَاءُ وَالْأَرْضُ وَمَا كَانُوا مُنظَرِينَ

So the heaven and the Earth did not weep for them, nor were they respited.
(English - Shakir)

When mountains & birds can recite the tasbeeh of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) along with Prophet Dawood (عليه السلام) (21:79), the heavens & Earth can also weep along with the Ma'sumeen (عليه السلام), weeping for Imam Hussain (عليه السلام)

Hadiths from chapter 26 of Kamil Al Ziarat

Is there any specific point (other than the mourning of creation over Imam Hussain) you want to highlight in these ahadith?
