Hazrat Syedana Hasan Mussana Alaihissalam in Karbala

Hazrat Syed Ḥasan al Mussana ( حضرت حسن المثنّی بن امام حسن بن امام علی علیہمھا السلام ) was son of Imam Hassan Al Mujtaba (Alaih salam) from his wife Khaola binte Manzoor bin Riyan Farazi (Alaih salam). He was born in 36 Hijri and was age fellow of Imam Ali bin Hussain (Alaih salam) known as Imam Zain al Abideen. Hazrat Hassan Musanna (Alaih salam) got a son Abdullah (Alaih salam) who was martyred in Ka rbala along with his paternal uncle Hazrat Qasim (Alaih salam) – other younger son of Imam Hasan Alaih Salam. Hazrat Hasan al Mussana was married to daughter of Imam Hussain Alaih salam which was also named as Fatima (Alaih salam), He was in the Carvaan of Imam Hussain (Alaih salam) along with his wife and sons.

Hazrat Hassan al Musanna (Alaih Salam ) finally got permission from Imam Hussain (Alaih Salam) for going in to battlefield.He addressed Yazid army as
“We did not come to fight, you can see the tents of the holy daughters and children of Rasool Allah ( صلی الله علیہ وآلہ وسلم ). Who intends to fdoes not bring his ladies and children! Umar bin Saad answered by sending 17 fighters, who attacked together, but all of them perished in Hell. After that, the army of Yazid advanced from all sides and Hazrat Hassan Musanna (Alaih Salam) collapsed on the earth of Karbala. Imam Hussain (Alaih Salam) brought him to the tents.

On the 11th of Muharram, when the army of Yazid was martyring the martyrs again by separating the Holy Heads, they noticed that Hazrat Hassan Musanna (Alaih Salam) was alive. Abi Hissan Asma bin Kharja Farazi said: His mother is from my tribe, I will not allow you to behead him, because our fight was with Hussain (Alaih Salam) and that is finished now. Umar bin Saad agreed not to behead him there, but to take the matter to Obaid :
Abi Hissan took Hazrat Hassan Musanna (Alaih Salam) on a camel to Kufa. Hazrat Hassan Musanna (Alaih Salam) opened his eyes after four days and asked: Where is my Imam Hussain (Alaih Salam)? Abi Hissan was reluctant to answer, but on insisting, he told: Imam (Alaih Salam) is martyred and his Holy Head is on a spear. Hassan Musanna (Alaih Salam) became unconscious. After recovering, he asked: Where are the daughters of Rasool Allah ( صلی الله علیہ وآلہ وسلم )? He answered: In the court of Obaidullah ibne Ziyaad . On hearing this, Hazrat Musanna (Alaih Salam) fainted gain. He revived again and asked: How could it happen, when Abbas (Alaih Salam) was there? Abi Hissan said: The Yazidi forces cut his holy arms.

As soon as Hazrat Hassan Musanna (Alaih Salam) could stand, he left the house of Asma bin Kharja and came out of Kufa to Masjid-e-Hanana. In this mosque, the daughters of Rasool Allah ( صلی الله علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) stayed during the night and the morning of the 12th of Muharram. The next day,Hazrat Hassan Musanna (Alaih Salam) went to Najaf-e-Ashraf, to shrine of Maula Ali (Alaih Salam), wept and told his grandfather (Alaih Salam) what had happened. He (Alaih Salam) stayed in Najaf for 4 days and he reached Karbala a few days later, where he waited for the release of the holy prisoners.

It was the arrangement of Allah تعالیٰ سبحان to save Hazrat Hassan Musanna (Alaih Salam), even after more than 18 deep wounds, to continue the progeny of Imam Hassan (Alaih Salam). Similarly, Allah wanted Imam Zain al -Abideen (Alaih Salam) alive from Imam Hussain ( alaih salam) lineage .

While Imam Zain al Abideen came back from Syria with the daughters of Rasool Allah ( صلی الله علیہ وآلہ وسلم this is when both cousins Imam Zain al Abideen (Alaih Salam) and Hazrat Hassan Musanna (Alaih Salam) saw each other, they fell on the ground, crawled to each other, wept and fainted. Syeda Fatima Kubra (علیھا السلام) gave the Holy Head of his son Abdullah (Alaih Salam) and said to Hazrat Hassan Musanna (Alaih Salam):

“ I brought your son to meet you”.
He started weeping and kissing the Holy Head of his son and he said: “You are luckier than me to get martyrdom.”

His sons were ‘Abd Allah Mahd, Ibrahim ‘Amr, and Hasan Muthallath, all of whom passed away in the prison of Abu Ja’far Mansur, the Abbasid caliph.

According to Hazrat Ali (karm Allaho wajhu) will, after Imam Hassan Alaih salam , Hazrat Hasan al-Muthanna was the custodian of tabbarukat given by Imam Ali Alaih salam.

Hazrat Hasan al-Mussanna has quoted hadiths from his father, Imam Hasan al Mujtiba ( Alaih salam) and some others. 
Finally, the agents of Walid b. ‘Abd al-Malik poisoned and killed Hazrat Hassan Mussana (Alaih salam) in 85 AH. They transferred his body to Madina and buried him in Jannat al baqih .

Hazrat Syed Abdul Qadir Gillani’s ( Alaih salam) lineage traces back to Hazrat Hassan Muthana ( Alaih salam) .

Tarikh Tabari of Muhammad ibn Jarir al-Tabariand and Nur al-absar by shaykh shablanji , both sunni books, and al-irshad a shia book by mufid, all affirm that Hazrat Hassan Musanna (Alaih salam) took part in Karbala..

SERMON About negligent persons and the characteristics of beasts, carnivores and women


ومن خطبه له (عليه السلام)
[صفة الضال]

وَهُوَ فِي مُهْلَة مِنَ اللهِ يَهْوِي مَعَ الْغَافِلِينَ، وَيَغْدُومَعَ الْمُذْنِبِينَ، بلاَ سَبِيل قَاصِد، وَلاَ إِمَام قَائِد.

منها: [في صفات الغافلين]

حَتَّى إِذَا كَشَفَ لَهُمْ عَنْ جَزَاءِ مَعْصِيَتِهِمْ، وَاسْتَخْرَجَهُمْ مِنْ جَلاَبِيبِ غَفْلَتِهِمُ، استَقْبَلُوا مُدْبِراً، وَاسْتَدْبَرُوا مُقْبِلاً، فَلَمْ يَنْتَفِعُوا بَمَا أَدْرَكُوا منْ طَلِبَتِهِمْ، وَلاَ بِمَا قَضَوْا مِنْ وَطَرِهِمْ.

إِنِّي أُحَذِّرُكُمْ، وَنَفْسِي، هذِهِ الْمَنْزِلَةَ، فَلْيَنْتَفِعِ امْرُؤٌ بِنَفْسِهِ، فَإِنَّمَا الْبَصِيرُ

مَنْ سَمِعَ فَتَفَكَّرَ، وَنَظَرَ فَأَبْصَرَ، وَانْتَفَعَ بِالْعِبَرِ، ثُمَّ سَلَكَ جَدَداً وَاضِحاً يَتَجَنَّبُ فِيهِ الصَّرْعَةَ فِي الْمَهَاوِي، وَالضَّلاَلَ في الْمَغَاوِي ، وَلاَ يُعِينُ عَلَى نَفْسِهِ الْغُوَاةَ بتَعَسُّف فِي حَقٍّ، أَوْ تَحَرِيف في نُطْق، أَوْ تَخَوُّف مِنْ صِدْق.

[عظة الناس]

فَأَفِقْ أَيُّهَا السَّامِعُ مِنْ سَكْرَتِكَ، وَاسْتَيْقِظْ مَنْ غَفْلَتِكَ، وَاخْتَصِرْ مِنْ عَجَلَتِكَ، وَأَنْعِمِ الْفِكْرَ فِيَما جَاءَكَ عَلَى لِسَانِ النَّبِيِّ الاُْمِّيِّ(صلى الله عليه وآله) مِمَّا لاَ بُدَّ مِنْهُ وَلاَ مَحِيصَ عَنْهُ، وَخَالِفْ مَنْ خَالَفَ ذلِكَ إِلَى غَيْرِهِ، وَدَعْهُ وَمَا رَضِيَ لِنَفْسِهِ، وَضَعْ فَخْرَكَ، وَاحْطُطْ كِبْرَكَ، وَاذكُرْ قَبْرَكَ، فَإِنَّ عَلَيْهِ مَمَرَّكَ، وَكَمَا تَدِينُ تُدَانُ، وَكَمَا تَزْرَعُ تَحْصُدُ، وَمَا قَدَّمْتَ الْيَوْمَ تَقْدَمُ عَلَيْهِ غَداً، فَامْهَد  لِقَدَمِكَ، وَقَدِّمْ لِيَوْمِكَ.

فَالْحَذَرَ الْحَذَرَ أَيُّهَا الْمُسْتَمِعُ! وَالْجِدَّ الْجِدَّ أَيُّهَا الْغَافِلُ! (وَلاَ يُنَبِّئُكَ مِثْلُ خَبِير).

إِنَّ مِنْ عَزَائِمِ اللهِ فِي الذِّكْرِ الْحَكِيمِ، الَّتِي عَلَيْهَا يُثِيبُ وَيُعَاقِبُ، وَلَهَا يَرْضَى وَيَسْخَطُ، أَنَّهُ لاَ يَنْفَعُ عَبْداً ـ وَإِنْ أَجْهَدَ نَفْسَهُ، وَأَخْلَصَ فِعْلَهُ ـ أَنْ يَخْرُجَ مِنَ الدُّنْيَا، لاَقِياً رَبَّهُ بِخَصْلَة مِنْ هذِهِ الْخِصَال لَمْ يَتُبْ مِنْهَا: أَنْ يُشْرِكَ بِالله فِيَما افْتَرَضَ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ عِبَادَتِهِ، أَوْ يَشْفِيَ غَيْظَهُ بِهَلاَكِ نَفْسِهِ، أَوْ

يُقِرَّ بِأَمْر فَعَلَهُ غَيْرُهُ، أَوْ يَسْتَنْجِحَ  حَاجَةً إِلَى النَّاسِ بِإِظْهَارِ بِدْعَة فِي دِينِهِ، أَوْ يَلْقَى النَّاسَ بِوَجْهَيْنِ، أَوْ يَمْشِيَ فِيهِمْ بِلِسَانَيْنِ. اعْقِلْ ذلِكَ فَإِنَّ الْمِثْلَ دَلِيلٌ عَلَى شِبْهِهِ.

إِنَّ الْبَهَائِمَ هَمُّهَا بُطُونُهَا، وَإِنَّ السِّبَاعَ هَمُّهَا الْعُدْوَانُ عَلَى غَيْرِهَا، وَإِنَّ النِّسَاءَ هَمُّهُنَّ زِينَةُ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَالْفَسَادُ فِيهَا; إِنَّ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ مُسْتَكِينُونَ ، إِنَّ الْمُؤْمِنينَ مُشْفِقُونَ، إِنَّ الْمُؤْمِنينَ خَائِفُونَ.

SERMON 152

About negligent persons and the characteristics of beasts, carnivores and women

He has been allowed time by Allah. He is falling into error along with negligent persons and goes early in the morning with sinners, without any road to lead or any Imam to guide.
A part of the same sermonAt last when Allah will make clear to them the reward for their sins, and take them out from the veils of their neglectfulness they will proceed to what they were running away from, and run away from what they were proceeding to. They will not benefit from the wants they will satisfy or the desires they would fulfil.I warn you and myself from this position. A man should derive benefit from his own self. Certainly, prudent is he who hears and ponders over it, who sees and observes and who benefits from instructive material and then treads on clear paths wherein he avoids falling into hollows and straying into pitfalls, and does not assist those who misguide him by turning away from truthfulness, changing his words, or fearing truth.O’ my listener! Be cured from your intoxication, wake up from your slumber, decrease your hasty activity and ponder over what has come to you through the Holy Prophet, the Ummi  which is inevitable and inescapable. You should turn away from him who opposes him and leave him and leave whatever he has adopted for himself. Put off your vanity, drop your haughtiness and recall your grave because your way passes over it.You will be dealt with as you deal with others, you will reap what you sow, and what you send today will meet you tomorrow. So provide for your future and send (some good acts) for your day (of reckoning). Fear, fear, O’ listener! Act, act, O’ careless! No one will warn you like him who knows.One of the firm decisions of Allah in the Wise Reminder (Qur’an) upon which He bestows reward or gives punishment, and through which He likes or dislikes is that it will not benefit a man, even though he exerts himself and acts sincerely if he leaves this world to meet Allah with one of these acts without repenting, namely that he believed in a partner with Allah during his obligatory worship, or appeased his own anger by killing an individual, or spoke about acts committed by others, or sought fulfilment of his needs from people by introducing an innovation in his religion, or met people with a double face, or moved among them with a double tongue.Understand this because an illustration is a guide for its like.Beasts are concerned with their bellies. Carnivores are concerned with assaulting others. Women are concerned with the adornments of this ignoble life and the creation of mischief herein (On the other hand) believers are humble, believers are admonishers and believers are afraid (of Allah).


The word “ummi” has been used in the Holy Qur’an with reference to the Holy Prophet in chapter 7:157-158. For better understanding of the word refer to the books of commentary on the Holy Qur’an. The intention is to say that the cause of all mischief and evil is the passion to satisfy bodily needs and the passion to subdue.If a human being is subjugated by the passion to satisfy bodily needs and considers filling the stomach as his aim there will be no difference between him and a beast, because a beast too has no aim except to fill its belly.But if he is over-powered by the passion to subdue others and takes to killing and devastation there will be no difference between him and a carnivorous beast, because the latter’s aim is also tearing and devouring.If both the passions are at work in him then he is like a woman, because in a woman both these passions act side by side and because of this she is extremely eager of adornment and is active in fanning mischief and disturbance.However, a true believer will never agree to adopt these habits as his mode of behaviour, rather he keeps his passions suppressed so that he neither allows pride and vanity to approach near him nor does he fan mischief or disturbance for fear of Allah.Ibn Abi’l-Hadid has written that Amir al-mu’minin delivered this sermon at the time of marching towards Basrah, and since the trouble of Basrah was the result of a woman’s instigation, Amir al-mu’minin has, after mentioning beasts and carnivore, held a woman also to possess such qualities. Thus the battle of Basrah was the result of these qualities, whereby thousands of persons were involved in death and destruction.
