His excellency "Moahammad – Al - Awsat" , nicknamed to "Hilal Ibn Ali"-one of imam Ali's offsprings – is buried in this sacred mausoleum
His mother Amamah is the daughter of "Abu –Al -Aas" and "Zeinab" , the daughter of the prophet (peace be upon him) .
So , Mohammad Hilal on behalf of the father is the immediate son of Imam Ali (P.B.U.H) and on behalf of the mother relates to the prophet with two intermediates.
After departure of Fatimah (P.B.U.H) the daughter of the prophet (P.B.U.H) and according to her will, Amamah married Imam Ali . (P.B.U.H) besides taking care of Fatimah's children, she bore "Mohammad Hilal" for him .
"Mohammad Hilal" was born at the first night of the blessed month of Ramadhan in 14 (A.H) and passed away at one of the last nights of Ramadhan in 64 (A.H)
There is no documented account of his life before " Karbala Event " , and what is recorded in the historical and biographical books is that Hilal Ali and his brother "Awn" lived in "ta-if" (Arabia) or in "Shaam" (syria) that became aware of the Event of Ashura (the 10th day of the lunar month of Moharram).
As soon as they heard this heart-breaking disaster , became impatient and unconscious.
After recovering their senses . they busied themselves with weaping and mourning.
A few days later they set out for the road of Mecca.
After two days traveling , they changed their minds and intended to travel to Yemen.
After resting for a while they gave up their idea and travelled to the direction of Khorasan (Iran).
Becoming aware of their arrival in "Toos" (in khorasan) their Shiite friends and adherents rallied around them.
"Gheis-ibn-Morrah", then governor of Khorasan , became aware of their presence and gathering of the friends and adherents around them.
He became frightened and provided a big army to fight with them.
Awn Ali and Hilal Ali also summoned their Shiite friends and adherents.
The two armies fought with each other in the country. In this battle some were killed and wounded from each side and some fled. Awn Ali became martyred.
When Hilal Ali was informed of his brother's martyrdom, bade farewell to his Shiite friends and adherents nightly and in spite of several wounds on his body, moved from Khorasan towards the central towns of Iran, killing some of the oppenents.
During the way and in the stations that he rested whoever met him with that charming and attractive feature , was attracted and infatuated with him, and asked his lifeline.
In reply to some of them he told his name and particulars and to some others he introduced himself as a merchant or a wayfarer.
After some days and nights travelling he reached to the suburb of Qom.
He asked the farmers working there about the circumstances of the town. They answered that people of Qom have been mourning for some days on the occasion of the martyrdom of Imam Hossein (P.B.U.H) and his companions.
On the other hand Mohammad Ash-ath(an agent of the government) intended to attack Qom, for its inhabitants were Shiite.
Helal Ali deliberated a while and became perplexed until decided to travel to Kashan and set out for there. He first arrived in Ahmadabad then entered "Nooshabad".
Being astonished visiting Hilal Ali some of the inhabitants of Nooshabad sought to arrest him.
Meanwhile they informed the city governor.
Being aware of the mater his Excellency Hilal Ali moved towards Aran ( a town near Kashan ) and around sunset reached a field just behind the rempart and walls of the town.
He asked the farmers working there about the name of the field. They replied that its name was "Arandasht"(Pacific Field). The farmers became astonished and wondered seeing his attractive feature.
Among them a very old man of the name of "Ya 'ghoub"(Jacob)approached, saluted him and asked his name and particulars.
Mohammad Hilal first avoided introducing himself but when Ya 'ghoub administered him an oath, that Excellency introduced himself as Imam Ali's offspring.
Ya' ghoub and his companions who were the adherents and lovers of the Holy Prophet and his household (or descendents) when heard his name and his descent to Imam Ali (P.B.U.H), bowed to him and prostrated themselves on his feet ,then took him into the castle enthusiastically.
They applied ointment on his wounds and provided a pleasant residence in a basement for him where a brook was flowing.
After resting for a while Mohammad Hilal Ali said to Ya'ghoub and his sons : "From where I have started travelling I have not been comforted for a moment but here I feel comfortable."
Ya ' ghoub and his sons were all at his service, and his friends and adherents used to come to visit him.
Mohammad Hilal spent three years there worshiping Allah, and advising and preeching the friends and adherents ( Shiites ).
At a Friday night near the end of the blessed month of Ramadhan, after vigil and saying morning prayer, he slept and saw the Holy Prophet , Imam Ali, Imam Hassan and Imam hossein – peace be upon them – and also his brother "Awn" in a dream.
Addressed to Hilal Ali the Holy Prophet said:
"O, my son, We are waiting for you for some time.
This apple is for you. Try to break your fast with this apple tomorrow night and be with us."
The next day Hilal Ali related his dream for Ya ' ghoub and his sons and said to them :
"I will be your guest just for today, and will die tonight."
Then he bade farewell to his friends and followers and gave them necessary advices and recommendations among them he willed:"Bury me in this place."
When night came he bade farewell to them once more then said a congregational prayer with them.
After prayer he prostrated himself.
One hour later his soul flew to heaven and joined his pure forelathers and ancestors.
After hour later his soul flew to heaven and joined his pure fore lathers and ancestors.
After ritual washing and shrouding, Ya' ghoub and his sons buried his holy body where he had willed, and now is a shrine and a place of refuge for friends, Shiites (followers) of Ahlul-bayt (the pure members of the Holy Prophet's household).
