Imam Mohammad ibn Ali al-Jawad (A) was the manifestation of the fight against evil. He was a striver for the [establishment of the] governance of Allah. He is an emblem and a symbol of resistance. He was a great human being, who throughout his short life, confronted and opposed the insidious and fake power of the Abbasid caliph Ma’moon [al-Rashid]. And Imam Jawad (A) never retreated [from his stance] even a single step, and he bore patiently the difficult conditions, and via all possible means of opposing [the Abbasids], Imam Jawad (A) opposed them.
