On the birth anniversary of the Shiites 11th Imam

Navideshahed- 8th of Rabi al-Thani (4th month of the Islamic Lunar Year) is the birth anniversary of Shiites’ 11th Imam which coincides February 8th this year, 2014.

Imam Hassan Al-Askari is the father of Shiites’ last Imam, Mahdi (PBUT). To talk about his life briefly a flashback to Imam Reza’s time is necessary, when the pressures upon Prophet Mohammad’s progeny were extremely heavy. Prophet of Islam’s progeny had always been under monitoring of tyrants of all times, by whom all Imams were martyred.
Strict controls applied to them continued up to Imam Reza’s time, who was invited to Toos in Khorasan, Iran – Mashhad nowadays – by al-Ma’mun who was the caliph of the time. He wanted to easily have a direct watching on the Imam’s life and also his relations. But again the caliph could not tolerate deep love of people towards Imam Reza and martyred him.
After Imam Reza, his son Imam Muhammad Taqi (PBUH) was in Kazemeyn under monitoring of the caliph and his relations with few Shiites of the time was totally limited. Then also Imam Ali Naqi (Shiites’ 10th Imam) was in Iraq, Samarra, more and more restricted by the caliph. Both these great and beloved Imams were also martyred in Kazemeyn and Samarra because the tyrants and people intoxicated with worldly desires could not stand righteous and divine words.
Then the 11th Imam, Imam Hassan al-Askari, was much more limited that he was sent to live in a military garrison.
According to prophecies made by the Prophet Mohammad and the other Imams, the 12th Imam of Shiites would be Imam Askari’s son and would stand against all cruelties and tyrannies of the time. So to prevent his birth the tyrants sent Imam Hassan al-Askari into a military garrison. Imam Hassan al-Askari was also martyred by the caliph of the time but later his son, the Savior of the Mankind believed by Shiites, was born to the world.
