Located in central Iraq Samarra is considered to be one of the most significant Shia sites. In Feb 2006 and June 2007 this holy shrine was rocked by a bombing that destroyed the Golden Dome of the mosque. This documentary tried to uncover what happened to the holy shrine.
Born in Madina on the 10th of Rabuil Akhar 232 Hijri ( 6.12.846 AD) Died in Samarrah Iraq on 8th of Rabiul Awwal 260 Hijri (4.1.874) aged 28 years. Period of Imamate 6 years.

Imam Hasan al Askari's (as) life from childhood to adulthood was spent in this house where his father Imam ĎAli Naqi (as) was to remain under house arrest. But despite this close guard on the Imam, he conducted his duties as Imam from inside the house.

He taught people Qur'an and instructed his followers the true teachings of Islam as taught by the Prophet of Islam and his Ahlul Bayt. In fact Imam Hasan al-Askari wrote a complete Tafseer of the Qur'an which was mentioned by many scholars, historians and exegetes, including Kulaini and Saduq.

Imam's life in Samarrah was not in peace even under house arrest. From time to time he was taken to Baghdad, questioned and put in prison there. On one such occasion, the Imam was taken by the Turkish guards to Baghdad where he was kept in prison during the short reign of the Caliph al-Muktadi and al-Mu'tamid afterwards.

While he was a prisoner in Baghdad there was a severe draught. Rain had not fallen for some time and crops were drying up. People were facing a famine. They did not know what to do. A Christian priest came to the rescue. He lifted his hands in prayer and rain fell. The Caliph became concerned lest for this reason people would forsake Islam and become Christians.

When the Imam was consulted, he said that when people assembled to see the so called miracle performed by the Christian priest, he would remove their doubts. The Imam was allowed to leave the prison to go where the crowd assembled to see the miracle performed by the priest.

Imam stood there with the crowd and when the priest raised his hands for prayer and rain began to fall, Imam told one of his companions to seize the hands of the priest and bring the piece of bone hidden in his hands.

When this bone was brought before the Imam, he said that it was the bone of a Prophet of God. It was the effect of this holy bone when lifted in prayers to God that brought God's mercy and brought rain to the land. This way the Imam lifted the doubts from the minds of the people. After this the Imam himself spread his prayer mat and performed two Rak'ats of prayers then lifted his bare hands to God for rain to come to the land and wipe out the draught.

The Imam's prayers were heard by the Almighty and rain fell so much that the land became fertile again and crops began to grow. (Kulaini, Akhbarus Alam)In recognition of this service the Imam was allowed to leave the prison in Baghdad and live in his house in Samarrah, still under house arrest. He was still not allowed to go to Madina.

What the Bible says about Muhammad (peace be upon him) the Prophet of Islam
Surely this book (the Bible) must have something to say about this great Leader of men who spoke so well of Jesus and his mother Mary. . .


Life and Teachings of The Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw)
It was in the latter half of the sixth century, when the world was plunged in utter darkness that the Holy Prophet Muhammad , was born. The then known world stood on the verge of destruction, with chaos as the order of the day and pre-Islamic Arabia was no exception to this, rather it was in the lowest depths of abysmal darkness; infanticide was rampant, debauchery was looked upon as chivalrous, drunkenness was a common sight and all forms of evil was glorified. . .

This book was first published in 1971 as part of the Islamic Correspondence Course run by Bilal Muslim Mission of Tanzania. The idea behind writing this book was to satisfy the needs of our new generation - the youths and students, as well as recent converts, who are unable to study the scholastic books written by the Muslim scholars and whose only source of information seems to be the biased writings of orientalists presented as "objective" and "authentic" studies.

This book not only presents an inspiring material but it is also based on authentic historical documents. One of its salient features is that the author has taken extreme care in narrating historical events and at the same time he has endeavoured as a research scholar, to approach them with an analytic mind also. Another interesting feature of this book is that it is absolutely free from heresies and concocted stories invented by vested interests. This book gives full details of the entire life of the Holy Prophet of Islam.

How much does the famous story of shoddier on Alias (p.b.u.h) Imamett has credibility and what debater have been propounded on that subject?
