Please provide me with the authenticity of the following narration:
عن أم حكيم قالت: قُتِلَ الْحُسَیْنُ بْنُ عَلِيٍّ وَأَنَا یَوْمَئِذٍ جُوَیْرِیة، فَمَکَثَتِ السَّمَاءُ أَیَّامًا مِثْلَ الْعَلَقة
Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Ummu Hakim (rahimahallah).
(Al-Mu’jumul Kabir, Hadith: 2836)
‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has graded all of the narrators up to Ummu Hakim as authentic (ورجاله إلى أم حكيم رجال الصحيح)
(Majzma’uz Zawaid, vol. 9 pg. 196)
Ummu Hakim (rahimahallah) said: “I was a small girl on that day when Husayn ibn ‘Ali [radiyallahu ‘anhuma] was killed. The sky then remained [red] for days like a blood clot.”
And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
