When one studies the life of Imam Hasan (AS), the Prophet’s grandson, he is overwhelmed by the oppression the Imam had to face, such as the secret burials of his mother and father, the lack of loyalty from his troops, the multiple attacks and injuries he suffered from his own army and Muawiyah’s army, the accusations from his own Shias for accepting the peace treaty with Muawiyah, the poisoning and the betrayal by his wife, and his own burial in which the people launched arrows at his body. This oppression continued after his martyrdom through the many rumors spread to degrade the Imam, and continues to this day with his barren shrine.
