    Imam Hasan Mujtaba--upon whom be peace--is the second Imam. He and his brother Imam Husayn were the two sons of Amir al-mu'minin Ali and Hazrat Fatima, the daughter of the Prophet (sawas). Many times the Prophet (sawas) had said, "Hasan and Hussain are my children."Because of these same words Ali would say to his other children, "You are my children and Hasan and Hussain are the children of the Prophet (sawas)."In human perfection Imam Hasan was reminiscent of his father and a perfect example of his noble grandfather. In fact, as long as the Prophet (sawas) was alive, he and his brother were always in the company of the Prophet (sawas) who even sometimes would carry them on his shoulders. Both Sunni and Shi'ite sources have transmitted this saying of the Holy Prophet (sawas) concerning Hasan and Hussain: "These two children of mine are Imams whether they stand up or sit down" (allusion to whether they occupy the external function of caliphate or not). Also there are many traditions of the Holy Prophet (sawas) and Ali concerning the fact that Imam Hasan would gain the function of Imamate after his noble father.In the year 50 A.H. he was poisoned and martyred by one of his own household who, as has been accounted by historians, had been motivated by Mu'awiyah.
