The generosity of Imam Hassan Askari (AS)

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated form Abu Hashim who said: I was in a very bad financial situation and wanted to write a letter to Imam Hassan Askari (AS) and ask for help from the prison, but I was ashamed and did not do it. When I arrived at my home, Imam Askari (AS) sent me 100 dinars and wrote: Whenever you have a request, do not be ashamed, and ask whatever you need, you will get whatever you want, God Willing [1].

It is also narrated by Ahmad ibn Mohammad from Jaafar ibn Sharif Jorjani who said: The year I went to Hajj, I went to Sammara to see Imam Hassan Askari (AS). Friends and Shia Muslims had sent some money and other things to Imam (AS). I wanted to ask Imam Askari (AS) to whom I should give all that, but before I say anything, Imam Askari (AS) said: Give whatever you brought with you to Mobarak, my house server [2].
