Imam Sadiq (PBUH) life was enlightened lesson of true Islam

Imam Jafar as-Sadiq has the same birth date as that of our Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon them). The sun of the existence of Imam Jafar as- Sadiq (PBUH) arose from the lap of his mother Umm-e-Farwah on the 17th of Rabiul Awal, 83rd year Hijrah, in the city of Madina.

The Whole of the life of Imam Jafar as-Sadiq (PBUH), like the other infallible Imams was the enlightened lesson of the real and true Islam.

His father Imam Muhammad Baqir (PBUH) was much happy and pleased by the birth of his son. Imam Jafar as Sadiq (PBUH) has three titles; they are As-Sadiq, Al-Fadil and At-Tahir.

Imam Jafar as Sadiq said about her mother, "My mother was one of the pious, faithful and devoted women."

 Imam Jafar as-Sadiq (PBUH) was 15 years of age when his grandfather Imam Sajjad (PBUH) was martyred and 34 years old when his father Imam Muhammad Baqir (PBUH) was martyred.

Consequent upon the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (PBUH) , Bani Umayyah was shaken which turned the people into their enemy and pessimist about them. This opened the avenue for the formation of Bani Abbasid government.

 The gap in between these two powers opened the way for the propagation of Shia ideology and school of thought. Imam Jafar as Sadiq (PBUH) could, through a learning movement, preach the learning's of Islam in such a way to extend and make it reach all the people in the World.

 He himself was considered to be the example and specimen of the Islamic ethic, moral and conduct.

You cannot find a father and a son among all the people, who may resemble each other from all the angles of ideas, thoughts, character and conduct.  But the family of the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) and his successors all were on the same line and performed their heavenly duty with one aim, one ideology, and did not have any kind of difference in speech, character and ethical conduct.

 About the ethical value and virtue of Imam Jafar as Sadiq (PBUH), it is sufficient that out of four thousands of his students even a single one did not object or criticize upon the moral character and conduct of Imam Jafar as Sadiq (PBUH), and did not find a weak point in it.

He was a practical example and specimen for the Muslims with respect to eating, relaxing and resting, walking, speaking, and conducts with others. He had the same social conduct with his friends as he had with his children.

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic, once said in a historic message that " Our jurisprudence, which is an endless sea, is the result of Imam Sadiq’s endeavor.

Imam Khomeini once said in a historic address that he is honored to be a follower of Imam Sadiq (PBHH), who furthered divine teachings and revived original teachings of Islam at very sensitive juncture of history. 

"We are honored to say that our religion is Ja’fari. Our jurisprudence, which is an endless sea, is the result of Imam Sadiq’s endeavor, we are proud to be the followers of the innocent Imams.”
