The undesirable schism of reviling Hazrat Ali (as)
- :Qurrat-ul-Ain Abidiy
"Hazrat Ali (as) will be remembered with dignity and honour and no abusive language will be used against him; or, according to some narrations, it will not be practiced in the life of Imam Hasan (as)."
This condition, with some variation, has been recorded by the majority of the historians, some of the more prominent ones being: Abul Faraj Isphahani, Ibne Abee-al-Hadeed Mo'tazilli Ibne Khaldoon Ibne Asakir ,Ibne Kaseer Sheikh Mufeed The historian Tabari Ibne Aseer Ibne S'ad Ibne Sabbagh Maliki The scholar Raazi aale Yaseen The scholar Baqar Qarshi. 28
This condition reflects that Imam Hasan Mujtaba (as) was very much concerned about the high status and respect for his illustrious father. He and his group were determined to face all conspiracies meant to hurt the honour of Hazrat Ali (as) and would not show any leniency in this respect.
