The Patience Of Imam Hussain (AS) 5
‘O John!’ [We said,] ‘Hold on with power to the Book!’ And
 We gave him judgement while still a child,
   
13. and a compassion and purity from Us. He was Godwary,
14. and good to his parents, and was not self-willed ordisobedient.
15. Peace be to him, the day he was born, and the day he dies,and the day he is raised alive!
Yahya (AS)
In Sura Maryam (sura 19) Allah (SWT) teaches us about Yahya. Prophet Zakariya and his wifewere quite old. Prophet Zakariya and his wife did not have any children even though they hadbeen married for a long time. Prophet Zakariya (AS) prayed to Allah (SWT) to give him a son
2 of 4who would inherit him and also uphold his mission and the mission of his forefathers. ProphetZakariya (AS) was an ascetic and a leader of the Jewish learned men. He lived away from theglitter of the worldly life. He prayed in a whisper to Allah (SWT). It was due to his closeness to Allah (SWT) due to his distance from the material world that Allah (SWT) granted him a son.
This son’s name was chosen by Allah (SWT). He was called Yahya (John) from hayat or life.
 The birth of Yahya (AS) and Issah (AS) were miracles. Yahya was born to an old woman whodid not have any children and Issah (AS) was born to Hazrat Maryam without a father. Yahya(AS) was born several years earlier than Issah (AS) and gave the news of Issah (AS)prophethood to the people. He did this before Issah (AS) was born.Yahya (AS) was a pure and god fearing child. He became the Prophet of Allah (SWT) at the ageof three. Ayyashi (a Muslim scholar) quotes Ali bin Asbath. Ali bin Asbath said that once he wentto visit Imam Ali Ibn Musa (AS) in Madina. He was much impressed by the Imam and wanted to
inform all in Egypt about him. At this moment the Imam (AS) recited ‘We gave him (Yahya)wisdom while yet a child’. Similarly Imam Ali (AS) was made the i
nheritor of the Prophet whenhe was 10 years old in the event of Zul Asheera. The incident of Yahya (AS) who became aProphet at age 3 shows that it is possible to be an inheritor of a Prophet at age 10. None candeny that Imam Ali (AS) is the first Imam due to his young age.
Imam Hussain (AS) remembers Yahya(AS)
Sufyan Ibn 'Uyyainah recited on the authority of Ali Ibn Zaid on the Authority of Ali Ibn Al Husain(AS) who said that Imam Hussain (AS) never descended upon a place of descent nor did hedepart from a place except that he mentioned Yahya Ibn Zakariya. One day he said: One of the
3 of 4disgraces of this world for Allah the Mighty and Majestic was that the head of Yahya IbnZakariya led to an injustive among the injustices of the children of Israel.

Yahya (AS) is martyred
The king of his time (reputed to be Herod) honored and obeyed Yahya (AS). One of the Queenshad a beautiful step-daughter. The Queen wanted the King to marry her step-daughter. Yahya(AS) said that according to their religion this is not correct. The step-daughter demanded thatthe King marry her only if he gave her Yahya (AS) head on a platter as a wedding gift. The kinghad Yahya (AS) beheaded and presented his head on a platter to her.
Similarities between Yahya (AS) andImam Hussain (AS)
 Aqa Mahdi Puya says:  According to the Ahl ul Bayt, the names of Muhammad, Ali, Hasan and Husayn were alsochosen for the first time under divine inspiration.Imam Jafar bin Muhammad as Sadiq said:"Before Yahya and Husayn, no one was ever named by either of their names.For no one the heavens wept for forty days save Yahya and Husayn.
