An extract of Imam Hasan Al-askari’s sayings...

Generosity has a limit, when crossed becomes extravagance; caution has a limit when crossed becomes cowardice; thriftiness has a limit, when crossed becomes miserliness; courage has a limit, when crossed becomes fool-hardiness. Let this moral lesson suffice: refrain from doing anything which you would disapprove of if done by someone else. 

Let piety be your provision, patience be your garment, and buy hardship in the path of Allah. Be true in your speech, trustworthy in performing your deeds, prolong your sajdah (prostration), deal with others with best behavior, and treat your neighbor amicably. Perform your prayers even with those whom you think to be your opposition; attend their funeral ceremonies, visit their sick, and give them their rights. Verily I tell you that whosoever is honest and has good behavior in the eyes of others, he is the pious Shia whom I will be proud of. Therefore, fear Allah, be as adornment on behalf of us and be not as shame that defames our name. This is the only way by which others shall be attracted toward us (the Ahlul Bayt of the Holy Prophet s.w.)  More quotes


Ziarat  of IMAM HASSAN AL ASKARI (as)    Pdf   Mp3 Abather    Mp3

Shaykh al-±£s¢ has reported through a considerable chain of authority that Imam al-°asan al-`Askar¢ (`a) said, “My grave will be in Surra-man-Ra’a (currently S¡marr¡'). It will be shelter for the people of the two parties.” Explaining this saying, Shaykh al-Majlis¢ says that ‘people of the two parties’ means the Sh¢`ah and the Sunnah. This means that the virtue of the Imam (`a) includes both his adherents and his enemies. Similarly, the holy tomb of Imam al-K¡¨im and Imam al-Jaw¡d is shelter for the people of Baghdad.

Sayyid Ibn ±¡w£s says that once you intend to visit the holy tomb of Imam al-°asan al-`Askar¢ (`a), you may do all the preperatory acts of visiting Imam `Al¢ al-H¡d¢ (`a), as previously cited.You may then stop at the tomb and say the following words:
