Martyrdom of the pure and righteous Imam, Imam Hassan ibn-Ali al-Askari (PBUH)


In the six years of his Imamate several attempts were made on his life. On the 1st of Rabi-ul Awwal 260 a.h. Mo’tamad arranged for Imam(a.s.) to be poisoned in prison and then sent him home. Imam(a.s.) was in great pain and difficulty for 8 days. On the 8th of Rabi-ul Awwal he asked his son, the 12th Imam, to bring him some water and then leave him. He died that day and was given ghusl & kafan by his son, Imam Mahdi(a.s.).
Burial
The funeral prayers were led by the 12th Imam and it was then that a lot of Shia’s saw him for the first time. A large number of people attended the funeral and he is buried in Samarra.

Nauha by Syed Wirasat Ali marhoom

diya zahr ibne Ali un Naqi ko
janaab’e Imam e Hasan Askari ko

rakha qaid meiN Moatamid ne hameisha
na syyed pa aaya taras uss shaqi ko

darindoN ko jis ghar meiN paala gaya tha
bula kar wahaaN bheija Ibne Ali ko

namaaz aapne uss jagah jab adaa ki
kiye sajde un mooziyoN ne wali ko

nikal aaey paRhkar namaaz aap lekin
na maana Imaam e Zaman muttaqi ko

rawayat meiN tahreer hai Moatamid ne
diya sharbat’e sAm waseeye Nabi ko

jise peete hi zahr phaila jasad mein
raha teen din karb Ibne Ali ko

thi woh maah’e suyyum ki taareekh hashtum
chupaaya tahey khaak haq ke wali ko

tha sAn do sau aur saath hijri woh aey Fikr*
diya sAb ne pursa Ali aur Nabi ko.
