Sulah AlHassan (A.S)
Author: Shaykh Radi Al Yasin:

"When he (Imam 'Ali) heard that the people besieged him (`Uthman) and prevented

him from drinking water, he sent him three water skins and said to al-Hasan and al-

Husayn: `Go with your swords, stop at his door, and do not allow anybody to hurt

him. So al-Hasan was colored with blood, and Qanbar, his (`Ali's) servant, was

wounded.

 

 

al Hasan sat at the door of the House of `Uthman on the day when he was killed. Al-Hasan guarded

`Uthman against the people. So he was wounded and colored with his own blood. All

historians have reported this event. For example, in his book `Ta'rikh', al-Taqtaqi

said: "Indeed, al-Hasan fought bravely for `Uthman. He stood side by side with him

while he was fighting for him. He (al-Hasan) was ready to sacrifice his life for him

(`Uthman)."

family, [2] and the Sire (behavior) of the righteous Caliphs. [3]
