Martyrdom imam sadiq
The Imam’s Martyrdom
According to historians, Imam al-Sadiq (a) was martyred by the poisonous grapes Mansur had him eat. Um Hamidah is quoted as saying, “On his deathbed, the holy Imam gathered all his relatives. When everybody showed up, he said, ‘Our intercession does not go to somebody who belittles the daily prayers and is heedless to it

Nonetheless, Imam al-Sadiq was martyred on the 25th of Shawwal in the year 148 A.H. at the age of 63.38

The news of Imam al-Sadiq’s martyrdom spread over the Muslim land, and true Shi’as shed tears over his martyrdom. He was buried in Baqi‘ cemetery next to the graves of his holy father and grandfather.

A CODE OF PRACTICE FOR MUSLIMS IN THE WEST

A Muslim who is born and raised in a Muslim country where he consciously and subconsciously absorbs the laws, values and teachings of Islam, grows up into a young person who is aware of the customs of his religion, following its path and is led by its guidance. On the other hand, a Muslim who is born, and brought up in a non-Muslim country demonstrates the influence of that environment very clearly in his thoughts, ideas, behaviour, values, and etiquette unless his Lord helps him. This un-Islamic influence is seen more in the second generation of those who have migrated to non-Muslim countries.
