Hazrat Abulfazl in Ahl-ul-Bayt’s Viewpoint

Hazrat Abbas (A.S) in Imam Sadiq’s Perspective: (Part 1)

hazrat abbas (a.s)

Imam Sadiq (A.S), the immaculate Imam and great scholar and unique figure of knowledge in the world, always appreciated his uncle, Hazrat Abbas (AS). He always remembered him by praising and admiring him. He was highly grateful to his heroic stances and sacrifices he made during the event of Ashura. In what follows, some of Imam Sadiq’s sayings about Hazrat Abbas also know as Ghamar-e-Bani Hashem are mentioned:

“My uncle, Abbas Ibn Ali (A.S), had a strong faith and profound insight. He fought for the sake of God along with his brother, Imam Hussein (A.S). He was able to successfully pass the test and was eventually martyred…”

Imam Sadiq (A.S) also names his uncle’s greatest characteristics which is an astonishing one as follows:

A. Acuity and sharp insight

Acuity is achieved due to firm determination and originality of thought which no one can get but after mental refinement, purity of intention, and driving away pride and sensual desires and self-control. Acuity was one of the most obvious characteristics of Abulfazl Al-Abbas (A.S). In fact, due to his acuity and profound insight, he followed Seyyed al-Shohada, Imam Hussein (A.S) and was able to reach the pinnacle of honor and dignity, which made him immortal and everlasting in the course of history. Thus, till human values do exist and are respected by human beings, the unique personality of Hazrat Abbas (A.S) who reached the peak of human perfection will be respectfully honored.
