A SHORT BIOGRAPHY OF IMAM JAFFER AS-SADIQ (A.S)

By M.M. DUNGERSI - XKP

Imam Jafter Bin Muhammad (A.S.) is the 6th Imam shape the progeny of Prophet Muhammad (S. A.W.W.). he's identified extra through his name (Lakab) fc AL-SADIQ\ numerous causes were given as to why he has been singled out for this name although the entire Imams from the progeny of the Prophet have been truthful-AL SADIQ. Muhammad Khazri in tesAT-TASHRM i JL ISLAM! says: "Hazrat Abu Abdullah Jaffer Sadiq (A.S) got here of the Sayyeds of the Holy loved ones. He received the identify of Sadiq due to his unchallengeable truthfulness." Batras Bustani inhis DAERATAK MAAREFVol VI. reaffirms this view.

Another reasons is, there has been a necessity to tell apart him shape others who had the same identify and who had made fake claims to be the Imam of the time. by means of calling him AL-SADIQ, humans may differentiate him from the fake ones.

A 3rd rationalization is that Allah, the Almighty, Himself selected this name for him. The Prophet (S. A. W. W.) for that reason foretold the beginning of this Imam and gave him this identify.

The most crucial factor to notice is that just like the Prophet (S.A.W.W.) who used to be said to be honest i AL-SADIQ)

even by way of his avowed enemies, The Quraish of Mecca, equally Imam Jaffer Sadiq's truthfulness has been authorised always

even through his enemies.

As for the identify Jaffei; by way of. Arabic lexicon, it simpK ability a circulate. yet based on a few traditions. Jaffer is a different flow in paradise. In view of the truth that Imam Jaffer (A.S) was once to turn into a fountain head of information for one and all; he used to be given this identify by means of his father, the 5th Imam.

The 6th Imam is usually identified through many different titles C1LQAB') that come with FAADHIL (the very good one), TAHIR (the natural one), SAB1R (the sufferer one), QAEEM (the steadfast one) and MUSADDIQ (the ratifier).

Another distinct factor approximately Imam Jaffer Sadiq (A.S) is, the Shia sect of Islam is called after him. hence whilst humans speak of the

'madhab' of Abu Hanifa, of Ahmed Ibne Hanbal, of Malik bin Anas, of Imam Shafi, they speak of the madhab of Ahlul Bayt as madhab Jafferi.
