His father was the 7th Imam,Imam Musa Kazim A.S and mother Lady Najma.Imam spent 25 years of his sacred life with his father .He took the responsibility of the leadership of the nation for 20 years.This time period was the same when the cruel Abbasi Caliph Haroon ur Rashid ruled.He was the one who killed Imam Raza`s A.S. father,Imam Musa Kazim A.S.Then came the tyrant regime of Haroon`s son Mamoon,another cruel caliph.Mamoon had conflict with his brother Amin.Mamoon had a Persian mother while Amin had Arabian.Mamoon was granted the territory of Merv while Amin inherited Baghdad territory.Mamoon knew that Persians respected Imam A.S. and wanted to win Persians happiness.Hence he plotted a conspiracy against Imam A.S.
