Deepest Congratulations

 
We offer our deepest congratulations to The Master of This time (May God hasten his appearence) for the anniversary of the birth of his father Imam Al-Hassan Al-Askari (A.S.), thus asking The Most High Creator to hasten the revelation and the victory.
 
 Imam Al-Hassan Al-Askari (A.S.) took over the authority at the start of his youth. His lifetime did not last more than ten years after his authority during which he endured a hard crisis with six tyrant governors, on the hand of the sixth one Al-Moatamed his martyrdom took place.
 
Imam Al-Hassan ibn Ali ibn Mohammad (A.S.) was known as Al-Askari because he was born and grew up in a town which was named Askar yet is nowadays known as Samorraa. Imam Al-Askari was also known by other titles, among which are the following.
 
Imam Al-Hassan ibn Ali ibn Mohammad (A.S.) was known as Al-Askari because he was born and grew up in a town which was named Askar yet is nowadays known as Samorraa. Imam Al-Askari was also known by other titles, among which are the following.
 
Al-Zaki: He was called by Al-Zaki because of his worship and fear of God which all the people, near and far, knew about him. One of those close to the Imam (God’s peace bestowed upon him) related, "He used to sit in the sanctuary and prostrate. I used to sleep, wake up, and sleep again while he used to be still prostrating."
 
Obaidullah ibn Khakan (Al-Moatamed’s vizier) said to his son when the latter wandered of his father’s reverence of the Imam, "Had the caliphate been done with the successors of the sons of Abbas, nobody from the sons of Hashem would have deserved it except him [wanting Imam Al-Askari (A.S.)]. He deserves it for his grace, chastity, guidance, maintenance of his self, asceticism, worship, good morals, and righteousness." As regards the morals of Imam Al-Hassan Al-Askari (A.S.), Al-Kotob Al-Razi said, "His morals were like the morals of God’s prophet."
 
Al-Hadi:
Imam Al-Askari (A.S.) was a guide for the people since his childhood. This is manifested in the story of that man who passed by the Imam (A.S.) when he was a child and he was crying among his peers. The man asked him, "Would I buy for you something to play with?" The Imam (A.S.) answered him, "We were not created for playing." Then, the man asked him, "What were we created for?" He answered him, "We were created for learning and worship." Astonished, the man asked him, "Where have you got this from?" He answered him, "I have got from The Most High God’s saying: ﴾Did you think that We created you absurdly, and that you will not come back to Us?﴿" the man asked him, "What has afflicted you while you are still a child without any sin?" At this, the Imam (A.S.) answered him, "Leave me alone. I watched my mother trying to enkindle the fire with big woods, yet it did not enkindle but with the small ones. And I fear to be from the little firewood of Hell."
 
The Specific:
He (A.S.) was called by this title due to the graces, blessings, and answer of the supplication with which The Most High God specified him. Even Al-Moatamed himself went, at the beginning of his caliphate, to the Imam’s (A.S.) house, thus asking him, due to the honor and value he knew that the Imam had from The Most High God, to ask The Most Glorious and Reverent God to lengthen his lifetime.
 
The Lamp: Imam Al-Hassan Al-Askari (A.S.) was a spiritual lamp whose oil was drawing near to The Most High God. This lamp used to enlighten to the inhabitants of the skies with a light which some special people, like the servant of the Imam, could see. The Imam’s (A.S.) servant used to say, "When my master Abou Mohammad Al-Askari used to sleep, I used to see the light shinning from his head towards the sky."
 
Moreover, he was a lamp for the people emitting useful knowledge which even the non Muslims acknowledged. A Christian doctor in the era of the Imam (A.S.) said about him, "In our days, he is the most knowing among those under the sky."
 
The Blessed Marriage of the Prophet Mohammad and Al-Sayyeda Khadija (A.S.)
 
In addition to the noble birth of God’s prophet whose blessing was on all the creatures, the blessed marriage of God’s prophet Mohammad ibn Abdullah (peace be upon him) to the reverent Sayyeda Khadija (A.S.) also fall in Rabea the First.
 
On the basis of what is ascribed to the Messenger of Allah : "The best among you are those who are the best with their wives. And I am the best with my wives", we shed light on a group his and his pure Household recommendations as regards dealing with the wife.
 
A- Expense on Her

Expense, in addition to being the wife’s due, causes the bestowal of The Most High God’s great reward. It is related in the discourse: "Every man who gains money and then spends on his family has God giving him for each spent dirham seven hundred fold."

B- Not Insulting Her

The husband must not insult his wife whether through the offensive remark or the physical hurt which are among the things which lead to be renounced by God and His prophet (peace be upon him). It is stated in The Prophet’s discourse, "God and His prophet renounce him who hurts a woman till she asks for divorce."
 
C-Winning Her heart

The Household (A.S.) emphasized in dealing with the wife on winning her heart, and they indicated that this is achieved by means of several issues:
 
1- Love Address: It is ascribed to The Prophet (peace be upon him) that he said, "Man’s saying to the women, ‘I love you’ is never wiped out of her heart."
 
2- Beautifying Himself for Her Sake: It is ascribed to Imam Al-Sadik (A.S.) that he said, "The husband can not dispense without three things as regards the relationship between him and his wife: winning her heart by means of looking beautiful in her eye …"
 

3- Being Generous with Her: The continuation of the above mentioned discourse of Imam Al-Sadik (A.S.) is: "…and being generous with her." It is ascribed to Imam Al-Sajjad (A.S.) that he said, "He with whom God is pleased is him who is the most generous with his family."
 
4- Feeding Her with His Hand: It is ascribed to The Prophet (peace be upon him) that he said, "The man is rewarded for raising the mouthful to his wife’s mouth."
 
5- Overlooking Her Lapses: It is ascribed to Imam Zein Al-Abideen (A.S.) in his The Letter of Dues that he said, "…Her [the wife’s] due on you is to be merciful with her, to feed her, and to forgive her if she does something wrong."

From the Memory of Al-jihad
 
Abou Haidar was wakeful watching the calm situations of Baalbek. It was about ten o’clock at night when he was given an assignment, by those in the posts of responsibility, to examine the region of Tal Al-Abyad.
 
Without hesitation, he got in his car and moved with the lights turned off. He directed towards Dar Al-Hikma Hospital. He got out of the car and drew quietly towards the wall of the hospital. He heard a talk as if in the Persian language. He was so astonished and assumed that it was a trap. He scrutinized there and found out that some members of the Israelite enemy were frisking some of the hospital employees after having made them stand to the wall.
 
He told the brothers about that through the walkie talkie and waited for help, but the brothers could not reach him due to the intensive raids which burnt the whole surroundings. He decided to battle by himself with the Israelite force, for it was not accepted that they [the Israelite] would flee despite what they had done.
 
By means of quick and well studied movements, Abou Haidar succeeded in the attack and in taking, after being wounded, an Israelite soldier as a captive and in withdrawing to outside the hospital wall.
 
From the military aspect, this was near to a miracle. At those moments, his bullets seemed to be produced by a whole battalion, so the Israelite bullets showered over him like rain. As a result, his right shoulder was wounded. Yet he went on fighting, giving no heed to his pains and bleeding a lot. He could leave the captive, yet it was a chance that would not be missed.
 
One of the enemy planes spotted him while he was trying to move with the captive to a nearby tree. It began firing at him with the machine gun (800 mm); the bullets penetrated his body and tore it.
 
Abou Haidar did not martyrize until he wrote with his blood on the hospital wall: "Hezbollah, a call..." but he did not complete his writing. Did he mean that the resistance is the echo of the call of Imam Al-Hussein (A.S.) in Karbalaa? Or that this resistance is a call for all those having weak determination to wake up from their lethargy which has lasted a long?

Rouh Allah's call
 
The Sign of God the Martyr Sayyid Mohammad Baker Al-Sader and his oppressed honorable sister, who was one of the teachers of the lore and the morals and one of the sources of pride in knowledge and literature, attained the high degree of martyrdom. There is no wonder of the martyrdom of these two great people who spent their lifetimes in the strife for the sake of the Islamic aims against criminal people who spent their lifetimes in blood shedding and in oppression. I ask The Most High Creator to compensate us for this great loss with which Islam and the Muslims are afflicted.
