According to a narration quoted by Sheikh Jafar al-Shushtari in his book “Al-Khasa’is ul-Husainiyyah”: When Aba Abdillah al-Hussein was sending the Honorable Ali al-Akbar to the battlefield, he addressed the army and said: O Allah, you be the witness against them, as a youth is going towards them who is the most similar of people in appearance, temperament and logic to your Messenger. And whenever we missed your prophet, we used to look at this boy’s face.

The Honorable Ali al-Akbar was a clear example of a devoted, selfless young man; a young man who taught freedom and sacrifice to the whole world, bravely defending his beliefs and sacrificing his life in this way.

Imam Hussain’s decent upbringing adorned Ali al-Akbar with the best qualities of perfection, and his familial nobility, knowledge and virtues made up the greatest of personalities.

The Honorable Ali al-Akbar was a carbon copy of the Messenger of God, a branch of the pure prophetic lineage, and was considered the inheritor of all the virtues of the Ahlul-Bayt.

He played a prominent role in the event of Karbala and was always by the side of his noble father, Imam al-Hussain, fighting against the enemies of God’s religion. On the Day of Ashura, the Honorable Ali al-Akbar was the first person from Bani Hashem to be martyred after a brilliant display of courage.
