When was Hz. Husayn born?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Hazrat Husayn, the second son of Hazrat Ali and Fatima and the grandson of the Messenger of Allah was born in the month of Shaban in the 4th year of the Migration.

The Prophet slaughtered two rams on the seventh day of his birth for his grandson, recited adhan into his ear and cut his hair.

Hazrat Husayn looked like the Prophet just like his brother, Hazrat Hasan. The Prophet prayed for his grandsons as follows:

“O Allah! I love them; please love them...”1

Once, Abu Ayyub al-Ansari (may Allah be pleased with him) saw Hazrat Hasan and Hazrat Husayn playing in front of the Messenger of Allah. He asked,

“O Messenger of Allah! Do you love them a lot?” The Prophet answered,

“Of course, I do. They are two basils that I smell in this world.”2
