Abū Bakr b. Ḥasan b. ʿAlī b. Abī Ṭālib (a) (martyrdom: 'Ashura 61/680) was among the children of Imam al-Hasan (a) who was martyred after his brother,al-Qasim, by 'Abd Allah b. 'Aqaba al-Ghanawi.

Name and Lineage

Abu Bakr was son of Imam Hasan b. Ali (a) and his mother was a bondswoman. Some believe that he and Qasim b. Hasan were from one mother who is mentioned as Ramla. HE was martyred on the day of ‘Ashura together with his brothers ‘Abd Allah and Qasim.

In some sources, there is a mistake and he has been mentioned as Abu Bakr b. Husayn.

The Event of Karbala

On the day of ‘Ashura, Abu Bakr was martyred after his brother Qasim b. Hasan by an arrow short by ‘Abd Allah b. ‘Aqaba Ghanawi. His name is mentioned in Ziyarah al-Nahiya al-Muqaddasa (non-famous) and Ziyara Rajabiyya and in Ziyarah of al-Nahiya al-Muqaddasa, his murderer has been cursed. The poems of Sulayman b. Qatah elegizing for the martyrs of Karbala mentions the martyrdom of one of the companions of Imam al-Husayn (a) by a person from Ghanawi tribe which is probably referring to the story of Abu Bakr b. Hasan who was martyred by ‘Abd Allah b. ‘Aqaba:

“In the tribe of Ghani, there is a blood of us and one day we will take revenge from them.”

However, in some sources, Harmala b. Kahil al-Asadi has been introduced as his murderer.
