Does weeping for Imam Husayn (a) guarantee paradise?

Night of 2nd Muharram, 1424 AH, 2003
- Many ahadith indicate the importance and rewards of weeping from Imam Husayn (a). How can these ahadith be understood?
- For every hadith, the scholars have set forth 3 criteria by which it should be examined: a) Who narrated it b) What were the conditions under which it was narrated c) How does its content correlate with the Qur'anic message?
- By looking at what the Qur'an states about those who attain paradise, one can conclude that the mourning of Imam Husayn (a) causes one to be in a state where he/she can then go on to adopt those other characteristics which will cause him/her to live in Paradise in the hereafter. Crying alone without any deeds will not help one to attain paradise.
