Imam Khomeini introduced infallible successors of prophet as role-model

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic through his historic messages and speeches introduced the infallible successors of the holy prophet as a role-model for the entire humanity.

Imam Khomeini used to recommend the believers to follow footsteps of the holy prophet of Islam and his infallible successors. 

The late founder of the Islamic Republic highly appreciated efforts rendered by Imam Hasan al Askar for growth of the Islamic society from various perspectives in history.

Imam Hasan al Askari is the 11th infallible successor from pure progeny of the holy prophet who undertook serious efforts to revive genuine divine teachings at sensitive juncture of history.

Imam al Askari, born in Madina on the 10th of Rabuil Akhar 232 Hijri ( 6.12.846 AD) and was poisoned and killed on 8th of Rabiul Awwal 260 Hijri (4.1.874) aged 28 years through the instigation of the Abbasid caliph al-Mu'tamid.  Period of Imamate has been 6 years.

Imam Hasan al Askari’s (peace be upon him) life from childhood to adulthood was spent in this house where his father Imam ‘Ali Naqi (as) was to remain under house arrest. But despite this close guard on the Imam, he conducted his duties as Imam from inside the house.

He taught people Qur’an and instructed his followers the true teachings of Islam as taught by the Prophet of Islam and his Ahlul Bayt. In fact Imam Hasan al-Askari wrote a complete Tafseer of the Qur’an which was mentioned by many scholars, historians and exegetes, including Kulaini and Saduq.

Imam’s life in Samarrah was not in peace even under house arrest. From time to time he was taken to Baghdad, questioned and put in prison there. On one such occasion, the Imam was taken by guards to Baghdad where he was kept in prison during the short reign of the Caliph al-Muktadi and al-Mu’tamid afterwards.

Imam Hasan al-Askari (peace be upon him) lived a short life, only Twenty Eight years and in this short life he had to endure great sufferings by the hands of the Abbasid caliphs. But in spite of all that suffering and confinement under house arrest in Samarrah, many students of Islam benefited from his God gifted knowledge and later became scholars in their fields.

He discussed with agnostics of that age many times about the existence of God and the reasons for the necessity of the Prophets and Imams and many atheists changed their minds and converted to Islam. 

Imam Hasan al-Askari (as) also dictated many Traditions of the Holy Prophet and recorded many explanations of the verses of the Holy Qur’an.
