I testify that you were among the noble progeny of the Prophet,

May Allah bestow you Heaven with eternal abundance,

Teach us the righteous way through your knowledge,

Which you passed until your martyrdom.

I believe there wasn't a clear-cut Sunni-Shia distinction at his time. He was a Muslim. If being Sunni means aspiring to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet, peace be upon him, then all Muslims are

I believe he would have been a Shi'a, as in he followed the view of Ali's legitimate place as caliph. Though it is true that he taught people who became important figures in the Sunni schools. He is S

And Muhammad ibn Abi Bakr (رضي الله عنه) (son of Abu Bakr) was a Shiat Ali, practically became his adopted son. Even fought as a commander in the Battle of Jamal in opposing sides to his sister Ayesha

25th Shawwal: Martyrdom Anniversary of Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq (عليه السلام)

25th Shawwal: Martyrdom Anniversary of Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq (AS)


Imam Jaafar Al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) lived with his grandfather, Ali the son of Hussein (peace be upon them) for 12 years, and another 19 years with his father. The duration of his Imamate and succession after his father was 34 years. 

The red history of Shiite of Imam Ali ((عليه السلام).) proved that whosoever accepted the Islam minus the family of Imam Ali ((عليه السلام).) and struggled on its way did reach no where and was finally rendered despicable and helpless and at last turned into the tool of the hands of imperialists of the history. 

Al-Mansur conspires against Imam Jafar as Sadiq ((عليه السلام).), Since the cultural school of thought of Imam Jafar as Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) considered human beings effective in their fate and told them it is you who form a society. 

It is you who make yourselves prosperous or unfortunate and miserable. Only you provide the grounds for your progress or your fall. Meaning thereby, it is you who can dismiss the rulers from the seat of power and do not accept cruelty and hand over the ruler ship to the men who are capable and sympathizers. The propagation and spread of this belief and idea, which was the same Quranic belief of the Muslims, displeased and annoyed al-Mansur the second Abbasid Caliph. 

People may tolerate the excesses and cruelties of the tyrant rulers and bear the punishments and whips of their criminal masters. They, instead of objecting upon them, may express Commendation and thankfulness. Evidently and clearly Imam Jafar as Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) could not watch the propagation of such a wrong and dangerous belief, which was given to the people and taught in the name of Islamic culture and beliefs. Imam Jafar as Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) laid the foundation of the Islamic University to combat against this dangerous imperialistic belief. 

1. One day al-Mansur wrote to Imam Jafar as Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) "why do you not come to see me like the others?" Imam Jafar as Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) wrote in his response. "We do not possess any thing from the world so that we may be afraid of you for it (loss of it). You too do not possess anything for the justice day and the spiritualism so why must I come to see you? 

2. The next day al-Mansur wrote to Imam Jafar as Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) "Come here to admonish me." Imam Jafar as Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) wrote replying him, "whosoever be from the people of the world (adorer of world) will not admonish you and whosoever will be the man of the justice day will not come near you." 

3. One of the days Imam Jafar as Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) was present in the assembly of ‘al-Mansur’. By chance, a fly started teasing ‘al-Mansur’ and howsoever he tried to make it buzz off it would not and again sat upon his nose and head. 

Al-Mansur much annoyed as he was, said to Imam Jafar as Sadiq ((عليه السلام).), "Why has God created the fly?”Imam Jafar as Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) at once replied, "For the reason of disgracing and degrading the powerful tyrants through them. 

"‘al-Mansur’ became annoyed; he sat comfortably on his place and allowed the Imam Jafar as Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) to leave. Conflict of Imam Jafar as Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) with ruler of Medina After al-Mansur had martyred a group of the family of Bani Hashim. 

Sayings of Imam Jafar as Sadiq ((عليه السلام).): 

1- A Muslim who puts in endeavors to materialize the desire of his brother is like someone who performs holy war (Jehad) on the way to God. 
2- Our intercession will not be extended to the one who is careless in performing prayers. 
3- The fruit (result) of love and attachment with the world is inconvenience, trouble and sorrow and the result of piety and purity in the world is the comfort of body and soul. 
4- How indecent is it that the powerful ones take revenge from the weak. 
5- be benevolent to your father and mother so that your children may as well be benevolent to you. 
6- Pray to God that your sustenance does not lie in the hand of people. 
7- One who invites the people towards himself (leadership) and a person wiser than him is present among the people, has gone astray. 
8- Three things are the signs of a hypocrite: While talking, tells lies. Does not fulfill promises and commitments. Embezzles the deposits of others. 
9- Take distance from (avoid) being jealous of others because this will be the cause of your becoming away from God.
