~WHO IS H.QASIM?~
Imam Hussain’s brother Imam Hassan was killed when his son, Hazrat Qasim was 2 years old. He handed his wife a piece of paper before he died and told her that if ever they're in severe conditions of pain and trouble read this.
In the battle of Karbala, the 13 year old, nephew of Imam Hussain decided to fight for his uncle, however taking the permission for the same wasn’t easy as he was an orphan and the only sign of Imam Hassan.
He asked his mother about the same, heartbroken she wondered how would she face Bibi Fatema, the mother of Imam Hassan on the day of resurrection.
Later, they decided to read the Taveez which was actually a letter from Imam Hassan to his son, it said that there will come a time that my brother Hussain will be facing tens of thousands of enemies. That will be the day Islam will need to be saved by sacrifice. You must represent me on that day. The mother then hugged him and looked at him as her wish had been fulfilled, just like the other mothers of Karbala.
After reading the words written by his brother, Imam hugged his nephew and cried until he fainted. Imam then allowed the 13 year old for the war. He looked at him with moist eyes, hesitant to let him onto the horse, he was the only son of a widow, the last sign of his brother.
Imam told him that he’d be there so he could call him once he needs Imam. Hazrat Qasim entered the battlefield, his legs could barely touch the stirrups of the seat.
He fought in a way there was a tense situation in the army, they plotted against him and decided to circle him and kill him. They later surrounded him from all sides and hit him with the spear on the spine from behind and then the head, he fell from the horse and called upon the Imam.
The Horses ran over from one to another corner and one corner to another corner, from left to right and right to left. Rivayats say that Imam Hussain didn’t run to anyone’s call as fast as he ran towards him. Imam saw Hazrat Qasim’s body trampled, stepped over with the horse feets dividing it into pieces,Yet the face had a gleaming smile,Imam picked the pieces of Hazrat Qasim and then tied it in a cloth and took it to his mother.
