Did Imam Al-Husain die?

Question:

An innovator made the claim that Imam Al-Husain (a.) did not taste death and was instead lifted up to the heavenly world. He cited the 42nd volume of Bihar-ul-Anwar on page 302 as his source. What reports reached the lovers of the Ahl-ul-Bait (a.) regarding this issue?

Response:

As a refutation of such falsehoods, the statements of the truthful ones (a.) alone are sufficient.

Abu Basir reported that Imam As-Sadiq (a.) said: “Hisham Ibn Abdi l-Malik asked my father (Al-Baqir) some questions and said: “Tell me about the night when Ali, the son of Abu Talib (a.), was killed. What made the absent one aware of the environment in which the killing of Ali (a.) took place and what was the miracle for the people? Tell me if there is any example of it besides his assassination.” He said: “On the night when they murdered Ali Ibn Abi Talib (a.), you could not pick up a stone from the face of the earth without finding blood under it until dawn. It was the night that Aaron, the brother of Moses (a.), lost his life and it was the night that Joshua, the son of Nun (a.), was murdered. It was the night that Jesus the son of Mary (a.) was lifted up and it was the night that Husain (a.) was murdered.” [Bihar-ul-Anwar of Al-Majlisi, Volume 42 page 302 Hadith 2]

Abu s-Salti l-Harawi reported that he said to Imam Ar-Rida (a.): “O son of the Messenger of God, there are people who claim that Husain son of Ali (a.) was not murdered and Hanzalah ibn As’ad took his form so that Husain (a.) was lifted up to heaven just like Jesus, the son of Mary (a.). As proof, they use this verse: “God will never give the disbelievers a chance, to proceed against the believers.” (4:141) He said: “They have lied, may God be angry with them and curse them! They have become disbelievers, because they deny the reports of the Messenger (s.) that Husain, son of Ali (a.) will be assassinated. By God, Husain (a.) was killed and they already killed those who were better than Husain (a.), like the Commander of the Believers (a.) and Hasan (a.). There is none of us except being assassinated and by God, my assassination will be caused by the poison of my assassins and I know this by the covenant that the Messenger (s.) made with me and he was informed by the angel Gabriel (a.) who learned it from the Lord of the Worlds. As for the verse: “God will never give the disbelievers a chance, to proceed against the believers.” So He says: “God will never give the disbeliever a proof against the believer.” God already reported about the disbelievers who killed the Prophets (a.) unjustly (2:61) and by killing them, the Exalted never gave them an opportunity, to proceed with any proof against His Prophets (a.).” [Bihar-ul-Anwar of Al-Majlisi, Volume 44 page 271 – 272 Hadith 4]
