Imam Hassan Askari (a.s.) and the effort to preserve the holy existence of Hazrat Mahdi (a.j.)
The anniversary of the martyrdom of the 11th star of Imamate and Wilayat, Hazrat Imam Hasan Askari (a.s.), religious scholars say: Although he was in prison and under the strict supervision of the Abbasid rulers, but in order to preserve the holy existence of the Imam of the Asr, as well as the existence of the believers and His followers spared no effort.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Kabul: Mohammad Ali Fitri, an expert on religious affairs, said in an interview with Ava: In the responsibility of Imamate and leadership, it is essential to give importance to all aspects of human life, especially Muslims.
According to Fitri, in a general prioritization, inviting, guiding and explaining religious teachings and helping Muslims in the political, economic, social and cultural fields formed the work agenda of Hazrat Imam Hassan Askari (a.s.).
From a natural point of view, during the time of Imam Hassan Askari (a.s.), when the atmosphere of suffocation and tyrannical government ruled over the fate of the people, the Imam conveyed his messages to the society through the creation of a network of lawyers and communication revolutionaries, and from that side they received the messages and questions of the people. .
Imam's people worked as oil sellers or flour sellers, who were actually the link between the people and the Imam.
Fitri added: The imam wanted to prepare people's way of life for the time of absence, for this reason, he worked hard to train elite people so that after his martyrdom, he would be the link between the people and the imam to solve their questions and doubts.
This religious scholar also stated that Imam (a.s.) had trained about 100 students in various sciences and referred people to them to answer questions, and this caused the minor occultation of Imam Zaman(a.j.)  at the age of 5 after his martyrdom. His age lasted for 69 years, and people used to refer to his special viceroys, who were actually trained by Imam Hasan Askari (a.s.).
Imam (a.s.) had very regular plans to preserve the holy existence of Imam Asr (a.j.), and those who wanted to invade the Imam's house and privacy, stopped them and did not allow them to interfere in his family's affairs.
According to Fitri's statements, the favors of the Almighty God to Imam Hasan Askari (a.s.) and the trust he had in his companions were able to save the life of Hazrat Mahdi (a.j.) from accidents.
Meanwhile, religious scholar Gholam Abbas Misbah also said in an interview with AVA: "Without a doubt, all the Imams (AS) did whatever was their responsibility according to the circumstances, which is the first step of obeying God Almighty, paying attention to piety, and following the rules." Islam, enjoining the good and forbidding the evil, as well as the issue of Imamate and believing in the afterlife, were their priorities.
According to Misbah, the Imam Hasan Askari (a.s.), did not have complete freedom to act in their time and were mainly under the control of different governments, and this suffocating atmosphere made Imam (a.s.) send his message through specific people to reach the Shias secretly.
Imam Hasan Askari (a.s.) kept his expediency, paid attention to and acted on Islamic beliefs and was always doing taqiyyah and did not have direct contact with his friends, however, he did not spare any effort to explain Islamic teachings.
 According to him, some people who were not aware of the issue of Imamat at that time, Imam Hassan Askari (a.s.) introduced the Imamate of Hazrat Mahdi (a.j.), who was in his infancy, as the Imam after him through special people.
