Abd Al-Azim - the fourth grandson of Imam al-Hassan al-Mujtaba (a.s.) - gained this high level by his submission towards Ahl Al-Bayt (a.s). He was known for his knowledge and reliability, also for his high devotion with Allah (s.w.t). There are more than 100 hadiths narrated by Abd al-Azim al-Hasani available in various hadith references. He has narrated these many hadiths from Imam al-Jawad (a.s) and Imam al-Hadi (a.s). The Infallible Imams (a.s) have taught and told us that: "To know a man's position with us, look at the number of Ahadith he has narrated from us." Also in another narration, "To know the position of our followers is by looking at the Ahadith they narrate from us and the depth of their understanding about us.” (2)
With the above in mind, it becomes clear why the Imams gave this figure such great importance. Imam Al-Hadi (a.s) was once addressed him saying, “O Abu al-Qasim! You surely are our companion. Your religion is the religion that Allah wants his servants to follow. May Allah keep you on the right path in this world and in the hereafter." (3)
Hence, every lover of the Prophet (p.b.u.h & his family) should make a visit to the grave of this pious and nobleman, with the intention of being closer to the Prophet (p.b.u.h & his family).
