Shia View[edit]

Some Shia's claim that he showed dishonesty with Musa al-Kadhim[3] But the source is unknown and not acceptable by other schools of thoughts in Islam and even most of the Shia refused the statement of this blame.

Isma'ilism is following his brother Muhammad ibn Isma'il as a successor of Ismail ibn Jafar.

Abbasid Time[edit]

During the time period of Abbasid caliph Harun al-Rashid he was in Kufah with his brother Muhammad ibn Isma'il. After the death of Muhammad he returned to his uncle Musa al-Kadhim. He ordered him to leave Baghdad and migrate to Mashhad, Iran. He played an active role against the Abbasid Caliphate of the time to save and assist Musa ibn Jafar. He raised voice against the murder of Ali al-Ridha in Mashhad who was poisoned by Al-Ma'mun. Ma'mun sent his forces towards him but he saved himself and migrated to Bukhara.[4]


He was martyred by the Abbasid forces of Al-Mutawakkil in 242 AH at Mashhad Iran. He was succeeded by his son Syed Faateh who preached the revolt of Zayd ibn Ali.[5][6]
