Wednesday, October 16th, 2019, marks the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Rida (p), 17th of Safar, 1441 A.H.

It was narrated by al-Harawy [a companion of Imam al-Rida (p)], “I heard Aba al-Hasan Ali ibn Musa al-Rida (p) say: ‘May God bestow mercy upon a servant who revives our cause.’ I [Al-Harawy] asked, ‘How is your cause revived?’ Imam al-Rida (p) replied, ‘By  learning our knowledge and teaching it to people, for if people knew the beauties of our words they would have followed us.’”

[Al-Sadooq, Ayoon Akhbar al-Rida, vol 2, pg. 275]

روي عن الهروي سمعت أبا الحسن علي إبن موسى الرضا (ع) يقول رحم الله عبدا أحيا أمرنا فقلت له

وكيف يحيى أمركم؟ قال: يتعلم علومنا ويعلمها الناس فإن الناس لو علموا محاسن كلامنا لاتبعونا

[ الصدوق، عيون أخبار الرضا، ج 2، ص 275]
