How Imam al-Hasan ibn ‘Isa ibn Masrajis (r.a.) Converted
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Imam Abu Bakr al-Khathib (r.a.) related that Imam al-Hasan ibn ‘Isa ibn Masrajis (r.a.) used to pass by Imam ibn al-Mubarak (r.a.), while he was a Christian. Shaykh al-Hasan (r.a.) had a very beautiful face. Imam ibn al-Mubarak (r.a.) asked about him and was told, “He is a Christian.”
He said, “O Allah, Provide him with Islam.” Allah (s.w.t.) Answered his supplication and Imam al-Hasan (r.a.) became an excellent Muslim. He was one of the scholars of the community and one of those who travelled in quest of knowledge and the sunnah in all regions and people studied with him. He possessed scrupulousness, intellect and reliability.
