Imam Khomeini defined divine character and virtues of infallibles

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic used to recommend the believers to follow footsteps of the holy prophet of Islam and his infallible successors.

The late founder of the Islamic Republic highly appreciated efforts rendered by Imam Muhammad Taqi (peace be upon him) for growth of the Islamic society from various perspectives in history.

Imam Muhammad Taqi (PBUH) is the 9 th infallible successor from pure progeny of the holy prophet who undertook serious efforts to revive genuine divine teachings at sensitive juncture of history. 

Imam Muhammad Taqi (PBUH),one of the truthful successors of the holy prophet of Islam had earned respect and the highest position in human virtues and moral attainments as this was the marked feature of the Prophet’s family.

He was born in Madina, 10th Rajab 195 Hijri (12.4.811 AD) and passed in Baghdad 29th Zeeqad 220 Hijiri (27.11.835, aged 25 years. The Period of his Imamate has been 17 years.

It was customary for the infallible Imam to meet everyone humbly, fulfill the needs of the poor, maintain Islamic requisites of equality and simplicity, help the poor secretly, treat even foes fairly, extend hospitality, impart true Islamic knowledge to all and specially to the scholars of religion and the like, marked his saintly life-in full conformity with other members of this sacred series of infallible Imams.

It could be said that neither the Ummayads nor the Abbasids had any personal grudge against the Prophet or his family, the Ahlul Bayt, but they were at war with the moral standards set by them.

They always tried to destroy the center of moral excellence and human values which was shown as the polar star of ideal spiritual perfection, overshadowing their royal glory.

In order to uphold their imperialistic and luxurious norms of life, these monarchs wanted to do away with these godly saints who demonstrated righteousness, compassion, faith, piety, fraternity and justice as the main teachings of Islam.

The Will power of the Imam can be judged from the fact that he lived in a separate dwelling and of a humble standard in Baghdad.

The infallible Imam maintained the same ancestral unimposing behavior: no body guards, no pomp, no restrictions on people meeting him, no visiting times, and no discriminations against anyone meeting the Imam and learning from him.

He spent most of his day time sitting in the Mosque of the Prophet in Medina where Muslims came to avail from his knowledge and preaching. The narrators of Hadith and other students of theology came to enquire about religious sciences and the Imam guided them by explaining every complicated matter.

All the world saw that Imam Ja’far Sadiq’s successor, seated on the same mat, was guiding the people towards piety which was the hall mark of Islam.

Imam Muhammad Taqi’s speech was very charming and effective. Once during the Hajj season he addressed a gathering of the pilgrims and stated commandments of the Divine Law of Sharia’a. The audience included learned scholars who admitted that they had never heard such an eloquent and comprehensive speech.

Many scholars came to learn the teachings of Ahlul Bayt. A collection of brief and wise sayings is also left by the Imam, resembling the wisdom of his ancestor Imam ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (PBUH) some profound discourses on theology and monotheism are also to his credit.
