Hadith on Husayn: Hasan and Husayn are my two sweet-basils

Ibn Abi Nu’m reported: I watched Ibn Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, as he was asked about a man killing mosquitoes. Ibn Umar said, “Where are you from?” The man said, “The people of Iraq.” Ibn Umar said, “Look at this man! He asks me about killing mosquitoes when they killed the grandsons of the Prophet? I heard the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, say: They are my two sweet-basils in the world.
