Little about Imam Jafar As-Sadiq (A.S.)

By: Hyder Reza Zabet

25th Shawwal is the Martyrdom Anniversary of Hazrat Imam Jafar-as-Sadiq (A.S.), according to some traditions while some traditions say 15th Shawwal is Imam (A.S.)ís martyrdom day.

Imam Jafar-as-Sadiq (A.S), the Sixth Holy Imam from the progeny of Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW), was the Founder of the First Grand Islamic University. In this university the Holy Imam (A.S.) taught various branches of sciences and more than four thousand students were attracted towards him from far-off places. Imam Jafar-as-Sadiq (A.S.) strengthened the foundations of Islamic Jurisprudence and he is "The Founder of the Imamia School of Jurisprudence".

Mansur Dawaniqi, the Abbasid caliph, martyred Imam Jafar-as-Sadiq (A.S.) through poisoning on 25th Shawwal 148 A.H. and his holy body was laid to rest in the Jannat-al-Baqi cemetery in the holy city of Madinah.

On this sad and mournful occasion we express our heartfelt condolences and deepest grief to all the Muslims and the lovers of the Holy Ahlul Bayt (A.S.).

In his words to his followers, Imam (A.S.) said: Adhere to courtesy, decorum and tranquility and promote yourselves against what the virtuous ones among you promote themselves against. Be steadfast against wrong peopleís oppression. The servant that Allah created as faithful believer will not die before he hates and goes away from evil. Supplicate to Allah very frequently. He loves the servants who supplicate to Him. He promised them of response.

Keep up the prayers in general and the middle prayer in specific. You must know that Allah will throw hatred and belittlement upon him whoever humiliates any of the Muslims. Beware of oppressing each other, because this is not a character of the virtuous. Beware of envying each other, because it is the origin of atheism.

Muntakheb Ul  Aqwaal
"Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."

(Hazrat Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S)
