Although Imam Hasan Askari (AS) endured great sufferings, many students benefited from his divine knowledge and later became scholars in their own field of study. The Imam taught the Quran and the true teachings of Islam as taught by the Prophet of Islam and his Ahle Bait. He also wrote a complete Exegesis of the Quran.
He had many discussions with the non-believers about the existence of God and the reasons for the necessity of the Prophets and Imams. Consequently, many atheists converted to Islam at his hands.
Like the Bani Ummayads, the Abbasids were afraid of the exalted status of the Imams, their divine knowledge, and their rule over the hearts and minds of the people. So like his predecessors, in a rage of jealousy, Al-Mu\'tamid decided to put an end to the Imamate through every possible means once and for all.
However, with all their repression and power, the Abbasids rulers could not prevent the birth of Imam Mahdi (AS). Imam Mohammad Mahdi (AS), the Imam of our time was born 266 AH. He is in occultation awaiting Allah\'s command to reappear and clear the world of injustice, tyranny, and oppression.
On the orders of Al-Mu\'tamid, Imam Hasan Askari (AS) was poisoned on 8th Rabi-al-Awwal 260 AH at the age of 28. At that time, Imam Mahdi was only five years old. When people, including Al- Mu\'tamid, lined up for the funeral prayers, the young Imam came out of the house and led the funeral prayer of his father. However, immediately after the prayer, the Imam went inside the house and was not seen by his pursuers.
