Martyr helping a family

A cleric is telling a miracle story, in which a martyr pays for a family’s expenses and debts.]

Cleric narrates: He was rich. His father was rich. But I don’t know. Maybe he was hit on the head. Or as they say today he went nuts. So, he had joined to a group for searching for martyrs. They searched for martyrs. This group get paid. They have a meagre wage. Even though he was a businessman and his father was rich, he had said ‘I want to live on this money, because this money is very halal.’ (All I want to say is that it is possible.)

Cleric continues: This group did not have enough budget, and for a couple of months, they could not pay the salaries. And he was ashamed to come to Ahvaz. He lived in Ahvaz. He was ashamed to come to Ahvaz to see his wife.

Cleric emphasizes the truthfulness of is story: (The martyr, the person, and everything is available. I can give you the information, if you want.)

Cleric adds: He did not have money, so he was ashamed to go to his family. His wife had told him, ‘you left us and went to your martyr friends! You left us, but at least give us some allowance. I have borrowed so much from the butcher and the grocer that they don’t give me anything anymore. Tomorrow the relatives are coming here to our house for a visit, and we don’t have anything.’ (Tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.)

Cleric tells how that person gets angry at the bones of a martyr: They had found a martyr—Martyr Hassani, from the city of Sari. His ID card is available with his picture on it. It was the bones of the martyr. This group finds bones. He put the bones in front of him. He said, ‘I talked to the martyr disrespectfully: I am working for you. I am your worker, and you are the employer. Can’t you provide for my wife and children? And should I be ashamed of them?’

The commander asks him to take some time off: He said, ‘My commander realized that I am upset. He told me to go on vacation for a couple of days, and take care of the family problems.’

That person comes home to realize that martyr Hassan has helped the family: He said, ‘I went home and saw that my wife had bought everything. I told her, you just wanted to bring me here!’ She said, ‘No. Last night somebody came and said he was one of your friends. He said he owes you some money, and he give me the money. And then when I went to butcher’s shop to pay my debt, he said a friend your husband paid all the debts. He paid all the debts. I went to supermarket, he had paid all debts. You had such friends and you had never told me about them!’

That person is shocked when the wife identifies the picture of the martyr as the friend who had helped them: He said, ‘I said no one owes me any money!’ He said, ‘I had the martyr’s ID card with me. My wife saw it and said it was him. She said, I swear to God it was him who came here last night.’

He had told his wife, ‘What are you talking about? He had been martyred, and they found his bones. I took the picture, and went to the butcher’s shop. They said he came and paid all your debts a couple of hours ago. It was him.’ He said, ‘then I went to the other shop, the green grocery, and the supermarket. They all said it was him.’

That person apologizes to the martyr: He said, ‘I went back home to my wife, and we both started to cry. I said, forgive me for talking impolitely, we don’t want your help.’
