What is the reward for someone who is killed by the enemies of Ahlul Bait (AS) during the pilgrimage to Karbala?

SHAFAQNA – Hisham ibn Salem narrated: A man came to see Imam Sadeq (AS) and asked: What is the reward of someone who is killed during his/her pilgrimage to Karbala by a cruel ruler, or the oppressive king, and the enemies, and those who are opposed to Ahlul Bait (AS) of the Prophet (PBUH)? Imam Sadeq (AS) replied: When the first drop of blood spills, all of his/her sins are forgiven, and Divine Angels will wash him/her, to be cleansed in a way that he/she will be placed in the row of the prophets. Then Jabrail (AS) and Izrail (AS) with so many other angels will perform Salaat on his/her body, and will bring his/her shroud and body fragrances from paradise, and his/her grave will be enlarged, and his/her grave will be illuminated by bright lights, and will be pleasantly scented, and a door from heaven will be opened to him/her, and Divine Angels will bring gifts from heaven to present to him/her [1].
