hazrat akbar(as)

Recommended Posts



Dont know the exact answer, cuz till this moharrum i believed that Ali Akbar (a.s) was 18 on the day of 3ashura and Imam Ali Zain-ul- 3iba' (a.s) was around 25.

Just the other day, I read online somewhere that Imam Ali Zain (a.s) said something like, "I had another brother Ali, elder to me, but the cruel enemies killed him in Karbala". Forgot the website. And I guess, here Imam (a.s) is refering to Ali Akbar (a.s).

Maybe, someone is going to put an authentic answer. Insha Allah!

I think the bro means in the evnt of Karbela......Hazrat Ali Akbar actually faught in Karbela but Imam Zain-ul-Abiedeen was too ill to fight! In a sense he was greater in Karbela but only physically....as Imam Zain-ul-Abiedeen was the next Imam which mean he was infallible! So infact he was actually greater! If that makes sense!

All were great including the friends fighting for Imam Hussain at Kerbala.

However, Hazrat Ali Akhbar was great in the battle and Imam Zain-ul-Abedeen was great in the proceedings.

Don't forget just as Hazrat Ali-Akhbar endured physical and mental torture in the Kerbala battle, Imam Zain-ul-Abedeen had to endure similar torture in the aftermath, including living with the memories.

    • Anthony Joshua is not a marquee name? After he beat the great Klitchko?
    • Why people make Islam so hard? No ideas. Is not hard. People just complicating stuff in my opinion. I don't see anything to support your claim.
    • Where is water cooked? This remind me the day the Syrians got into Europe and they where given bottles of water to drink and they started throwing the water away and then complained of being thirsty.
    • Salam. You asked a good question and I admire your sensitivity to the Holy Month of Muharram. A refrigerator is a necessity especially for someone who needs to store a medication cooler than room temperature. There is no problem with buying something you need in Muharram, just try to do your shopping before or after the 9th (Tasua) and the 10th (Ashura). Those two days are when Imam Hussein AS and his companions in Karbala lost their lives and we should honor them by mourning. 
    • Shi'as that look down upon you because of your name are probably unaware to the fact that the Imams named their children with your name as well. You are actually doing us a great service brother. Many Sunnis often ask the Shi'a why we don't name our children and follow the sunnah of the Imams who named their children 'Umar, 'Uthman, or Aisha. You are helping us prove that we do indeed name our children the way the Imams named their children (although these names are indeed seldom heard nowadays). It's true that such names have negativity associated with them because of certain personalities in Islam's history, but they are also associated with some of the greatest personalities as well. If you look at recent blog entries, brother Islamic Salvation has some great posts on 'Uthman b. Madh'un, a great companion of the Prophet. Imam Ali also named a son with your blessed name. - Abu al-Faraj said: Uthman b. Ali about whom it is narrated from Ali that he said: I name him with the name of my brother Uthman b. Madh`un.
