Asmaa’ bint `Umays (a woman Companion) said

“When Ja`far and his companions were killed, I entered on the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, having tanned forty skins, kneaded by dough, washed my children, put perfume on them, and cleaned them. Then the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘Bring me Ja`far’s children.’ So I brought them to him, he smelled them and began to shed tears. I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, may my father and mother be sacrificed for you, why are you crying? Has news come to you about Ja`far and his companions? He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘Yes, they have been killed today.’ The Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, then went to his family and said: ‘Do not forget to cook for the family of Ja`far, because they are consumed with the affair of their companion [the affliction of his death].

Abdullaah ibn Ja`far (a Companion) said

` “When the news of the demise of Ja`far came, the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘Cook for the family of Ja`far, because they have just received news that will keep them engaged.’”

Al-Mubaarakpoori (a scholar) said: “The meaning is that sadness has come  and has consumed them, making them incapable of preparing food for themselves, otherwise, they may be troubled or hurt while they do not know it.”
