The Hussayni Rhetoric Division at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine held a mourning Majlis inside the holy courtyard, in order to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam al-Hassan al-Mojtaba (peace be upon him), the second imam of guidance and the fourth of the As'hab al-Kisa (peace be upon them).
The Majlis began with the recitation of verses from the Holy Quran, then Sheikh Ali al-Zubaidi ascended the pulpit, speaking about the enlightening biography of Imam al-Hassan (peace be upon him), his morals and values as well as some of the historical events he witnessed during his life.
Sheikh al-Zubaidi also touched on the efforts of Imam al-Hassan (peace be upon him) in establishing the truth and nullifying falsehood, in addition to the injustice and oppression that occurred to him during his honorable life, all the way to the incident of his martyrdom (may God’s peace be upon him).
The Majlis concluded with an elegy that expressed the horror of this tragic event and the extent of its sad impact on the hearts of Muslims. Everyone who attended the Majlis wept out of grief over one of the calamities that befell the Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them).
