Qasim, son of Hasan

WHEN THE YOUNG Qasim aged about fourteen years, son of Imam Hasan, sought permission to go, it is reported that Husain remembered the wish of his late brother Hasan that one of his daughters be wedded to his son Qasim. At the same time Qasim presented to the Holy Imam a closed note, written and given to him by his father, to be opened only when the worst calamity befell him, in which was written addressing Qasim

"My clear Son Qasim when your uncle Husain is besieged by his enemies from all sides and when every true lover of God and the Holy Prophet, lays down his life, defending the cause of Truth, you sacrifice yourself for the cause on my behalf"

The Holy Imam kissed his late brother's writing. It is reported that Husain wedded his daughter Fatema-Kubra to Qasim and immediately after the wedding, Qasim took his uncle's permission and went into the battlefield and after killing five famous warriors of the Devil's army (Azrag and his four sons) fell from his horse. Alas ! before Husain could reach Qasim in response to his call for help, the whole cavalry of the Devil moved trampling over Qasim's body.
