The Biography of Imam Reza (PBUH)
Alī ibn Mūsā al-Riḍā (PBUH), the eighths Imam of Shias, is the progeny of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his eighth successor. At the age of 35, he became responsible as the leader of the Islamic Shia union. His life was contemporary to the Abbasid reign and therefore, he suffered great difficulties made by the Abbasids. Finally, he was martyred by Ma’mun (his contemporary Abbasid Caliph) at the age of 55. In what follows, we briefly review some aspects of this holy Imam’s life.
