(Pbuh) حسن بن علي بن أﺑﻲ طالب) (c. 625 – 669),
we extend our greetings and felicitations to our 12th living Imam (ATF)
”On a Friday night I saw my mother (Fatima) standing in her arch of prayer. She was continuously kneeling and performing prostration till the dawn broke. I would hear her pray for the faithful men and women, but she did not pray at all for herself. I said, “Oh mother, why did you not pray for yourself like you prayed for others? so she replied, “Oh my son, first thy neighbour and thereafter your own house.”
–Narrated by Imam Hassan (AS
The Auspicious Birth Anniversary of Imam Hassan (Pbuh) حسن بن علي بن أﺑﻲ طالب) (c. 625 – 669)
Imam Hasan was the eldest son of Imam ‘Ali and Hadrat Fatimah. When the Holy Prophet received the happy news of the birth of his grandson on the 15th of Ramadhan, 3 AH , he came to the house of his beloved daughter, took the newly born child in his arms, recited adhan and iqamah in his right and left ears respectively, and in compliance with Allah’s command named him al-Hasan.
After the martyrdom of Imam Ali (Pbuh), the people of Kufa City swore allegiance to Imam Hassan (Pbuh) who had been governing as caliph for about six months.
Unfortunately; in the time of Imam Ali’s Imammate people turned out to be disobedient and separated. They devoted a lot of energy to the civil wars and some of the commanders and members of the army, joined Mo’avieh’s side due to the deceits threats and promises. Therefore Imam Hassan (Pbuh) found out if he wished to fight with Mo’avieh, he would be defeated and all of Shi’ites would be killed. Hence; he was obliged to make peace with Mo’avieh (which was the bitterest experience). Provided that he would continue to be in succession to throne and he would be the next caliph after Mo’avieh. And This would mean that Mo’avieh would treat Imam Hassan (Pbuh) as the way the last Caliphs treated Imam Ali (Pbuh). Mo’avieh accepted to be just a kaliph and not to interfere with the religious affairs and he also promised to consult with Imam as his advisor.
When Muawiya (la) gloated over what he had taken from Imam Ali (as) and his son, Imam Hassaan replied:
“O you who mention Ali, I am Al Hassan (as), and Ali (as)was my father. You are Muawiya (la) and your father was Sakhr (Abu Sufyan). My mother was Fatima (as) and your mother was Hind. My grand father was the apostle of Allah and your grandfather was Harb. My grandmother was Khadija and your grandmother ws Futayla. May Allah curse him who tries to reduce our reputation and to diminish our nobility, who does evil against our antiquiy and yet who has been ahead of us in disbelief and hypocrisy.
THE GOOD ATTRIBUTES OF IMAM HASSAN (Pbuh)
A Syrian man went to Medina. He saw an honorable man who was riding a horse .He explains the story in this way: “ I had never seen such a noble figure before. I was so anxious to know his name. I was told that he was Hassan Ibn Ali (Pbuh). Suddenly I became angry and asked him if he was Imam Ali’s son. His answer was positive. I began to insult him and his father as much as possible. He was in constant state of silence. Therefore; I was ashamed of myself. When I stopped insulting, he laughed and said: “ I think you are from Syria.” Obviously, he was right. “ If you need some place to settle down or some money or any thing else, come with me”. I was much more ashamed of myself. I was so wondered by his good nature that since then I could not like the others the way I liked him.”
