Hazrat Abbas ibn e Ali ( Ghazi Abbas Alamdar) as also known as Qamar e Bani Hashim in other words The moon of Banu Hashim born 4 Shan 26 AH – 10 Moharram 61 AH approximately May 15 647 A.D – Oct 10 680 A.D was a son of Moula e Kainat Imam Ali. Ghazi Abbas Alamdar is also known as Abu al-Fazl meaning the father of heavenly graces and/or the father of the graceful manner. He is also known as Ghazi meaning “soldier who returns successfully from the battle”. Although Abbas was killed at Karbala, he is known as because, when he carried out the first strike against Yazid’s army, his mission was to rescue the horse which was seized by Shimr during the battle of Siffin. Therefore this horse belonged to his other brother Imam Hasan ibn Ali a.s. Abbas retained control over the horse and presented it to Imam Hasan ibn Ali a.s.
Apart of being the “standard bearer” of Imam Hussain’s army, Abbas was asked by Imam Hussain a.s to provide some water for the thirsty children. The Euphrates river was occupied by Yazid I’s army to prevent the camp of Imam Hussain a.s from getting water. Because of his skill and bravery, Abbas could have attacked Yazid I’s army, occupied the river, and retrieved water for the camp alone. However, Ghazi Abbas was only allowed to be defensive because his brother Imam Hussain a.s didn’t want him to fight. He was only allowed to get water  (although there are also narrations which mention that he participated in battle, too). Eventually, Abbas went to the river to get water for the children in Hussein’s camp. Bibi Sakinah was very attached to Abbas, who was her uncle. To her, Abbas was their only hope for getting water. Abbas could not stand to see her thirsty and crying, Thy thirst!. When Abbas entered the battlefield, he only had a spear, and a bag for water in his hands. He was also given the authority to hold the standard in the battle and Imam Hussain a.s gave the standard to him who was the bravest one; therefore he came to be known as Ghazi Abbas Alamdar.
