The Seventh Holy Imam Musa AI-Kathum(as) the child of the Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq(as) and Umm Hameeda.
He was conceived set up called Abwa among Mecca and Medina.
He kicked the bucket of toxic substance while he was detained for fourteen long stretches of unjustified and painful detainment in Haroun’s Jail, without scarcely any food and water.
So much was his torment and starvation that his body was a wrap of bones concealed by free broken skin, because of the every day whippings he got from his corrections officers.
His body was set up for internment by his child the Eighth Imam Ali AI-Reda(as) and was covered where his place of worship stands today in the Kathumiya suburb of Baghdad, in Iraq.
He was the most learned individual of his time and the best of them. He was exceptionally liberal, daring, and of amazing profound splendors and love with long surrenders within the sight of Allah (SWT).
His authority over his annoyance was as with the end goal that he was named, AI-Kathum, which means having incredible command over one’s resentment.
When a destitute individual approached him for some assistance, and the Imam(as) just to know the man’s mentality of psyche posed him a few inquiries. At the point when the man addressed them appropriately, the Imam remunerated him in valuation for the readiness of the man’s brain gave him a thousand Dirham rather than a hundred that he had requested.
His adoration for revering Allah and prostrating before Him was so much that he inhaled his final gasp during his surrender before Allah (SWT).
Imam Musa ibn Ja’far Kazim, the child of the 6th Imam, was conceived in 128/744 and was harmed and martyred in jail in 183/799. He became Imam after the passing of his dad, through Divine Command and the announcement of his progenitors. The seventh Imam was contemporary with the Abbasid caliphs, Mansur, Hadi, Mahdi, and Harun. He lived in troublesome occasions, sequestered from everything, until at last Harun went on the hajj and in Medina had the Imam captured while asking in the Mosque of the Prophet. He was tied and detained, at that point taken from Medina to Basra and from Basra to Baghdad where for quite a long time he was moved to start with one jail then onto the next. At long last, he kicked the bucket in Baghdad in the Sindi ibn Shahak jail through harming and was covered in the burial ground of the Quraysh which is currently situated in the city of Kazimayn.
