Fantastic post, thank you very much brother. An important reminder to all of us, and inshAllah a catalyst to those who are unfamiliar with this great personality, and his legacy, to go out, research, and learn about the the great Shaheed Syed Muhammad-Baqir al-Sadr.

I'd just like to add that simply 'respecting' the Shaheed isn't enough. The Shaheed has left a great legacy, a line of forward-thinking, righteous Ulemaa'. Unless we listen to what they have to offer, and follow them, then the Shaheed died for nothing. The Shaheed's greatest gift to us isn't the books that he left behind; it's the mindset that he instilled in all his students, and his student's students, and the great inspiration that he was to the Ummah.

Indeed akhi, NO different to what we owe to our Imams and Prophets. If Imam Hussein (as) died the way he died so we can slap our chest 10 days of the year and cry, or better still cut ourselves to shreds, then what a pathetic religion we follow, and deserve to be the laughing stock of the west.

The worst thing we can do is forget Shaheed al-Sadr's world view in challenging the status-quo, which is no different to the world view of Prophets and Imams.

"Shaheed al-Sadr had a very deep respect for the Ahlul Bayt (peace be upon them).He used to spend hours thinking and pondering at the shrine of Imam Ali (peace be upon him). According to a source, when due to unfavorable conditions of the time Shaheed al-Sadr did not come to Imam Ali’s shrine for a few days, the Imam appeared in the dream of a respected scholar and asked him to inquire from Shaheed al-Sadr as to why he had not been coming to Imam’s lecture. The meaning and symbolism of this dream show the great source of Shaheed al-Sadr’s very high intellectual caliber.

"Expressing his deep respect for Lady Fatima Zahra (peace be upon her), he wrote the book Fadak fi Tareekh (Fadak in History). The book examines the issues and the circumstances in which Lady Fatima stood up and spoke truth to power. Shaheed al-Sadr wrote the book in his characteristically cogent and accessible style. I think he felt being indebted to Sayyeda and wanted to serve her, and he felt that elaborating and defending her cause may be the best way to do that, knowing that some great scholars of his time will be attracted to his book, and maybe his book on this issue will open the closed files of Sayyeda’s case in the eyes of those scholars."

"Sayyid Kamal Haideri once told us that he went to meet Shaheed al-Sadr when he was in house arrest. He would give only a few people the permission to meet him. Kamal Haideri said to Shaheed al-Sadr that he would give the ultimate sacrifice, but it would bear no fruit in this land. Iraq will not rise up. Everyone knew that Shaheed al-Sadr had the intention of sacrificing himself for the cause. Sayyid Kamal says that Shaheed al-Sadr summed his intentions to him in one sentence, a strange sentence: “Every nation requires a Hussain for the revolution to come.” Every nation has to shed the pure blood of a Hussain. They would have to give a sacrifice. He agreed to be the Hussain of his era. He knew they would not rise immediately, but their children would rise after him. His blood would bear fruit!"

May Allash SWT bless shaheed Seyyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr RA and his sister shaheed Amina Sadr bint al-Huda RA. :cry:

May Allah SWT elevate the souls of all our martyrs and strengthen our defenders until the return of Imam Mahdi AJ.
