Imam Hasan al-Askari (as)

Hadith 1:

عن أبي هاشم قال دخلت على أبي محمد (ع) وكان يكتب كتاباً فحان وقت الصلاة الأولى فوضع الكتاب من يده وقام (ع) الى الصلاة, فرأيت القلم يمر على باقي القرطاس من الكتاب ويكتب حتى انتهى الى آخره, فخررت له ساجداً, فلما انصرف من الصلاة أخذ القلم بيده وأذن للناس.


Narrated from Abu Hashim,

"I came to Imam Hasan al-Askari (ع) and the Imam was writing a letter. When it was time for Salaat/Prayer, He (ع) put the paper down from His hand and stood up for prayer. And I saw the pen moving over the paper & writing on the paper till it reached its end. So I went down into prostration to Him (out of respect or thanks?). When the Imam (ع) finished praying, He took the pen by His hand and gave permission for people to enter."

Hadith 2:

عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ الْعَلَوِيِّ قَالَ حُبِسَ أَبُو مُحَمَّدٍ عِنْدَ عَلِيِّ بْنِ نَارْمَشَ وَهُوَ أَنْصَبُ النَّاسِ وَأَشَدُّهُمْ عَلَى آلِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ وَقِيلَ لَهُ افْعَلْ بِهِ وَافْعَلْ فَمَا أَقَامَ عِنْدَهُ إِلا يَوْماً حَتَّى وَضَعَ خَدَّيْهِ لَهُ وَكَانَ لا يَرْفَعُ بَصَرَهُ إِلَيْهِ إِجْلالاً وَإِعْظَاماً فَخَرَجَ مِنْ عِنْدِهِ وَهُوَ أَحْسَنُ النَّاسِ بَصِيرَةً وَأَحْسَنُهُمْ فِيهِ قَوْلاً

Narrated that Abu Muhammad Imam Hasan Askari (ع) was imprisoned under the supervision of Ali ibn Narmasha who was one of the extremely hostile men towards the descendants of Abu Talib (ع). The Imam had stayed with him only for a day and the guard who was hostile towards him placed his cheek in submission to Him & he would not raise his eyes towards him due to honor/esteem/respect and greatness. And the Imam came out from his prison in such a state that the guard had turned into having the highest degree of understanding of Him and would speak the best words about Him.
