The night and day of Al-Qassem son of Imam Al-Hassan (peace be upon them), rituals with taste of Karbala..

The month of Muharram has its own rituals, through which the tragic advent that befell the Prophet and his household (the best blessings and peace be upon them) is embodied, numerous commemoration events and activities are set up by the lovers and followers of Ahl Al-Bayt (peace be upon them) all over the world, to express their effusive emotions and to show to the world the love of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) in the hearts of the faithful. Among those rites is to allocate some Ashura days and night with the names of the family and companions of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon them), who are the symbols of the timeless tragedy of At-Taff, who sacrificed everything they had for the grandson of the Holy Prophet (prayers and Allah's peace be upon him and his holy household), who gave us the perfect example of what being faithful and loyal means. This tradition goes from the first to the tenth day, every day a Majlis is set up in the name of one of the personalities of At-Taff, mentioning their attitudes, characters and actions in order to give an idea to the attendees about these personalities.

Among these days, the day and night of Al-Qasem son of Imam Al-Hassan (peace be upon them both), as known, all members of the family and companions of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon them) were martyred during the day of the tenth of Muharram, but this night is commemorated by the devotees and followers of Ahl Al-Bayt (peace be upon them) by remembering the courage and virtues of this resolute Hashemi lad, in memory of his heroic defence of the victorious Hussayni revolution...

The owners of condolences processions go out wearing white clothes and holding candles, and during their march they are chanting the heroic actions of Al-Qasem and his martyrdom between the hands of his uncle Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), bringing children with them, some walk with a young on a horse or on his feet chanting the famous words of Al-Qasem (peace be upon him) in front of the enemies: "If you don't know me, I am the son of Al-Hassan *** The grandson of the chosen prophet, the entrusted," in a kind of theatrical representation of Al-Qasem (peace be upon him) and his wedding in the paradise.

It is to mention that it is reported from the Imam Al-Hujjah (May Allah hasten his reappearance) in the Zyarat of Al-Nahiya Al-Muqaddasa (the sacred place), the mentioning of Al-Qasem son of Al-Hassan Al-Mujtaba (peace be upon them): "Peace be upon Al-Qasem son of Al-Hasan, the beaten on his head, the mortally wounded and distressed, the one who called his uncle Al-Hussayn, who flew to him like an eagle and saw him in convulsion, rubbing his hands and heels upon the sand. And the Imam (peace be upon him) exclaimed: “Indeed it is grievous that your uncle was unable to respond soon enough to your cry for help, so that by the time he could reach you it was too late and you were already martyred. Away with the people who have killed you. They will be arraigned by your father and grandfather on the Day of Judgement. Truly, this is a day whereon the killers are many and the helpers are few...”

Al-Qasem (peace be upon him), despite his young age (he was about 12 or 13 years old on the day of Ashura), was ready to support his uncle Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), trained to fight like brave knights, which is not surprising as he is the son of Al-Hassan and grandson of the Commander of the Faithful (peace be upon them) and raised by Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), which made him have the perfect morals, faith and persistence, and be a role model for those who are walking in the path of martyrdom, learning from his words when he was asked by his uncle Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him): "O Qasem, how do you find the taste of death? He replied: "O uncle! I swear by God that the death between your hands is sweeter than honey."
Therefore, Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) insured and gratified him that he will be among the winners.
