Imam al-Kadhim (A.S.) was a pious monotheistic Imam whose heart was brimming with love for Allah (SWT). In his prayer, he (A.S.) was unmatched. The devoted and pious people followed his example. It is said that whenever Imam al-Kadhim (A.S.) stood up in the presence of the Almighty, to perform his prayer, tears would roll down his face.
Sayings of Imam Musa Kazim (AS)
1.Moderation is the half of the livelihood.
2.Amicability is half of the intelligence.
3.Hastiness is the true clumsiness.
4.The most high-ranking people are those who disregard the worldly pleasures completely.
5.Whenever you get a pious leader and ruler (then) thank God for this boon.
6.Allah has prohibited heaven for all the users of abusive and obscene language.
7.Dua reverts both what has been destined and what has not been destined.
8.The believer is like the two pans of a balance-the more faith he enjoys the more misfortunes he faces.
9.Very much care drives into senility
In 179 A.H. king Haroon-al-Rashid visited Medina. The fire of malice and jealousy against the Ahl-ul-Bayt was kindled in his heart when he saw the great influence and popularity which the Holy Imam enjoyed amongst the people there. He got the Holy Imam arrested while he was busy in prayer at the tomb of the Holy Prophet(S.A.W.). He was chained and imprisoned, then taken from Medina to Basra and made a prisoner in the house of Ã¢â‚¬Å“Isa bin Jafar, the governor of that city. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Isa was so much impressed by the Imam's personality that he requested Harun to relieve him of this responsibility. Imam al-Kadhim (a.s.) was moved from Basra to Baghdad where for years he was transferred from one prison to another.On the 25th of Rajab 183 A.H., he got the Imam martyred by poison. Even his corpse was not spared humiliation and was taken out of the prison and left on the bridge of Baghdad. His devotees however, managed to lay the Holy body of the Imam to rest in Kazmain (Iraq).
