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.
