Imam Hassan Askari
Imam Hassan Askari belongs to noble family of Ahlal Bayt (AS) of Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH), the last apostle of God and Prophet of Islam.
However, like despotic tyrants of Umayyad dynasty, Abbasid depots too target Ahle Bayt (AS) because they consider them threat to their anti-Islamic rule.
