- Main article: Shaykh 'Abbas Qummi
'Abbas b. Muhammad Rida al-Qummi (b. 1294/1877 - d. 1359/1940), known as Shaykh 'Abbas Qummi and Muhaddith Qummi, was a Shiite scholar of the 14th/20th century. He was well-known in hadiths and history as well as preaching and orations. Shaykh 'Abbas Qummi wrote many books, the best-known of which are Mafatih al-jinan, Safinat al-bihar, and Muntaha al-amal. He died in Najaf in 1359/1940 and was buried in the Holy Shrine of Imam Ali (a).
The author mentions in the introduction that when he finished the book Muntaha al-amal, he decided to add to it a short history of the descendants of Imam al-Hasan (a), but because it turned out to be lengthier than the other parts of the book, he decided to put it in a separate book.
This book is about the history of Imam al-Hasan (a) and his descendants from 11 AH/623 CE until the end of the Abbasid caliphate in 656 AH/1259 CE. It gives an account of the revolts of the Hasanids and other descendants of Abu Talib and mentions the scholars and poets among them.
