Our sincere and heart-felt condolences to the believers of the world upon the martyrdom of Imam al-Baqir (A).
Imam Muhammad ibn Ali al-Baqir (A) is the fifth divinely appointed Imam.
He was the son of the fourth divinely appointed Imam, Imam Ali ibn al-Husayn al-Sajjad (A) and the Imamate of Imam al-Baqir (A) lasted for nineteen years.
During his blessed and auspicious Imamate, a great step was taken towards the organization of Shia thought in numerous fields including, but not limited to ethics, jurisprudence, theology, and exegesis.
According to historical sources, he was present at the event of Karbala as a child in 61 hijri.
He was martyred via poison on the 7th of Dhu al-Hijjah.

You are Baqir al-Uloom (A) and the world is at your command, O’ Imam al-Baqir (A)!
