Martyrdom of Imam al-Askari (A)

This lecture was delivered on the Martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hasan al-Askari (as), the father of our Present and Awaited Saviour, Imam al-Mahdi (atfs). Sheikh Mansour touches on the issue of the celebrations on 9th Rabiul Awal, or Eid e Zahra, and discusses the validity and the common misconceptions of this celebration (through analyzing historical evidences and narrations). He also discusses the misconceptions around the death of the 2nd Caliph, once again providing his analysis and evidences. Any doubt about these two issues will be solved after watching this lecture inshaAllah. In conclusion, Sheikh shares with us one of the final wills of Imam Hasan al-Askari (as) to his son Imam al-Mahdi (may Allah hasten his reappearance). The will of our 11th Imam contains beautiful advice that all of us can benefit from. Sheikh ends with a majlis to commemorate the martyrdom of the 11th Imam.
