Those who spend the night of Ashura beside the grave of Hussain (as) will meet Allah on the Day of Judgment stained with their blood as if they had been martyred alongside Him in the desert of Karbala.

Hadith 5

Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) narrates:

“Four thousand angels descended on the day of Ashura in order to fight alongside Hussain (as) but they were not given permission by Imam Hussain (as) to fight. So they ascended back to the heavens to seek permission from Allah. By the time they returned, Hussain (as) had already been martyred. The angels remain disheveled and covered in dust beside Hussain (as)’s grave, mourning over Him. They will continue to do so until the Day of Judgment. 

Their leader is an angel named Mansoor. These angels welcome everyone who performs the Ziarat of Hussain (as) and accompany the zuwar (visitors) as they bid farewell to Hussain (as). The angels visit the zuwar if they become ill. The angels perform prayers for the zuwar at their funerals when the zuwar dies and the angels seek forgiveness for the zuwar after their death. All of these angels wait upon the earth for the reappearance of al Qaim (atfs).”
