Al-Hasan ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib (Arabic: الحسن ابن علي ابن أبي طالب, romanized: Al-Ḥasan ibn Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib; 624–670 CE), commonly known as Hasan or Hassan, was the eldest son of Ali and Muhammad’s daughter Fatimah, and was the older brother of Husayn. Muslims respect him as a grandson of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad. Among Shia Muslims, Hasan is revered as the second Imam. Hasan was elected for the caliphate after his father’s death, but abdicated after six or seven months to Muawiyah I, the founder of the Umayyad dynasty to end the First Fitna. Al-Hasan was known for donating to the poor, his kindness to the poor and bondmen, and for his knowledge, tolerance and bravery. For the rest of his life, Hasan lived in Medina, until he died at the age of 45 and was buried in the Jannat al-Baqi cemetery in Medina. His wife, Ja’da bint al-Ash’at, is commonly accused of having poisoned him.
