امام جواد (ع)

Although the people did not attend to Imam Jawad (a.s.) much because of his young age and some other reasons, some scarce issues have been narrated about him.

Hawzah News AgencyImam Jawad (a.s.) had a short life, but he had a deep knowledge of theology, Creation, and Resurrection, just like his father and grandfathers. He observed the realities of the world via intuitive eye; his belief was beyond subjective themes. This is a necessity of Imamate. Therefore, Imam Jawad (a.s.) was just like his honorable father and grandfathers in worship, humiliation before Allah, sincere supplications, piety, alms-giving, and good ethics.

Although the people did not attend to him much because of his young age and some other reasons, some scarce issues have been narrated about him.

Shiykh Mufid has written, “Imam Abu Ja’far (a.s.) left Baghdad with his wife, Ummul Fazl, and went toward Medina. In Kufah, the people welcomed him. Near the sunset, he reached the house of Musayyib. Imam (a.s.) landed from his horse and went to the mosque. There was a tree in the mosque yard that did not have fruit. Imam Jawad (a.s.) asked for water and performed wudu beside that tree. He performed the Evening Prayer with the congregation (jama’ah).

In the first rak’ah, he recited the Surahs Al-Hamd and Al-Nasr and in the second rak’ah Surahs Al-Hamd and Al-’Ikhlas. Before the second ruku’, Imam (a.s.) recited qunut. In the third rak’ah, he recited tashahhud and salam. Then he remained seated and recited zikrs for a while. After that, he rose and performed four rak’ahs of nafilah. Then he recited the supplications and performed sajdah shukr two times. He then left the mosque. The people went out too and found that the tree had fruits because of blessing of Imam Jawad’s (a.s.) wudu. They ate the fruits that were very sweet, but had no stones.”
