Monday, November 6th, 2017 marks the Martyrdom Anniversary of
Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Ridha (p), 17th Safar, 1439 A.H.


Ibrahim ibn al-Abbas narrated,

I have never seen Abu al-Hasan al-Ridha hurt anybody with something he said, nor have I ever seen him interrupt anyone until he had finished, nor refuse someone a favor that he was able to do, or did he ever stretch his legs before anyone sitting with him, nor lean against something while his companion did not, nor did he ever insult any of his servants or workers. And I have never seen him spit or burst into laughter; rather, his laughter was just a smile. When he was ready to eat and the table had been laid, he seated with him at the table all his servants, including the doorman and the stable boy.’

Uyun akhbar al-Rida, vol. 2, p. 184, no. 7.

I.M.A.M. offers its sincere condolences to the Imam (p) of our time, the jurists, scholars, and students of the Islamic seminaries, and all believers on the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Ridha (p).
