Bab ul-Hawaaij

People believed that God will surely settle the needs of him who implores to Him by seeking the intercession of al-’Abbas for the special rank that he enjoys in the sight of Almighty God for dedicating himself to the obedience to Imam al-Husayn. Hence, al-’Abbas is called ‘Bab ul-Hawaaij’ - the door to settlement of needs.

Al-Abd us-Salih

Historians and biographers should have recorded the epithet of ‘al-Abd us-Salih’ - The righteous servant (of God) along with the other epithets, because it refers to the highest rank one can attain.

In the special ziyara of al-’Abbas that Abu-Hamza ath-Themali narrated, Imam as-Sadiq (a) says:

“Salaam be upon you, the righteous servant!”

Prophets enjoy this rank, because it reflects the close, firm relation between man and the Almighty Lord. In the Holy Qur’an, God describes His prophets, including Prophet Muhammad (S) as righteous servants.

Imam al-Mahdi, God may hasten his return, said a great word about al-’Abbas:

“Salaam be upon Abu’l-Fadhl al-’Abbas, son of Amir ul- Mu’minin. He preferred his brother to himself, supplied himself with (opportunities of) today for (rewards of) tomorrow, sacrificed himself for his brother, protected him, hurried for fetching him water, and his two hands were cut off for this. May Allah curse his killers; Yazid ibn ar-Raqqad and Hukaim ibn at-Tuffail at-Taee…”3

it is now very clear that Imam al-Husayn (a) left the body of his brother in that place for an excellent secret that can be understood only by the well-mannered ones.
