The birth of Imam Hasan Mujtaba (A.S.)

The birth of Imam Hasan Mujtaba (A.S), the first child of Hazrat Fatema Zahra (A.S), the honored daughter of the Holy Prophet of Islam (S.A). According to authentic sources, the birth of Imam Hasan Mujtaba (A.S) occurred on Tuesday, 15th of Ramadan, 3 A.H. In the Torah, the revered name of his holiness has been mentioned as Shabbar which in the Arab literary , it is Hasan.  It has been narrated in the traditions that when Imam Hasan (A.S) was born, a light radiated from his charming face and brightened the city of Medina. Then, the Holy Prophet (S.A) congratulated Imam Ali (A.S) and his daughter Bibi Fatema Zahra (A.S) on this auspicious occasion. Then, he ordered a white shroud to be brought and he covered the new born baby in it and said:

“ O Allah, certainly I entrust him and his childrens to you from the accursed Shaitan.”

 Then, he recited the Azan on his right ear and recited the Iqama on his left ear, This was the first voice that Imam Hasan (A.S) heard from the Holy Prophet (S.A) about Tawhid. The Holy Prophet (S.A) told his parents to keep his name as Hasan as it is the best name. He said that the Almighty has selected this name for his own self. The Holy Prophet (S.A) said that he has been named as Hasan for his charming and excellent qualities. [ Ref: Taarikh - ul - Khamis, Vol 1; pg 470 ]. Anas Bin Malek says: No one resembled the Holy Prophet (S.A) more than Hasan Ibn Ali (A.S) Then, he said: One day, Bibi Fatema Zahra (A.S) took the hands of his two children [ Imam Hasan and Imam Hussain (A.S)] and came in the presence of the Holy Prophet (S.A). She said : “ O , my father o messenger of Allah. They are your children. Bestow your favour so that they will become your heir”  Moslem and Bukhari narrate in their Sahihs from Barah Ibn Aazab a tradition to this effect that: I saw the Holy Prophet (S.A) who had made Hasan sit on his shoulders and was saying: “ O Allah, I like and love him. You, also like and love him.” Tirmidhi quotes a tradition from Ibn Abbas who says: “ I saw the Holy Prophet (S.A) who was carring Hasan on his back.” A person said, “ O son, what a good mount you are riding on.” The Holy Prophet (S.A) said, “ And such a good rider.” Again, Tirmidhi quotes a tradition from Abu Saeed and Ammar Ibn Yasir. They say that the Holy Prophet (S.A) would always repeat:“Hasan and Hussain are the leaders of the youths of the Paradise. These two are the two sweet - smelling flowers of this world.” Imam Hasan (A.S) was having such a lofty position and excellent virtues that nobody could equal him. His revered grandfather was the Holy Prophet of Islam (S.A) and his noble father was Amir - ul - Momenin Hazrat Ali (A.S). He was the heir to the Holy Prophet (S.A) and the biggest warrior in the way of Islam. His Holy mother was Hazrat Fatema Zahra (A.S). She was such a noble lady that the Holy Prohet (S.A) took her for “ Mubahela” against the Najrani Christians. The Holy Prophet (S.A) pledged to the Almighty for the sake of her holiness. She was one of the five merituous people who were made to sit under the cloak (Aba) of the Holy Prophet (S.A) and they became famous as the companions of Kasa and for them was revealed the holy Ayats of Tathir in Holy Quran. Hasan and Hussain were the one who would sit on the holy chests and shoulders of the holy Messenger of Islam (S.A). Whenever the Holy Prophet (S.A) would meet the Hasanains, he would, before the people, say in an affectionate voice, the message of wahy (revelation) :

 “ They are a parts of my own body. They are my eyes and my soul. They are two Imams after me.”
