Defense of Mahdaviya by Imam Sajjad (A.S)
Shabestan News Agency: After the uprising of Hazrat Mukhtar the Kaisania sect claimed Mahdaviya for Hazrat Muhammad Hanfia however Muhammad Hanfia did not accept such a claim by them and Imam Sajjad (A.S) also rejected their stance and thus defended Mahdavia.
The scholar of Islamic history Hojjatul Islam Ali Akbar Mahdi Pur while talking to Shabestan News Agency correspondent and defending Mahdavia said regarding the steps taken by Imam Sajjad (A.S) that on 5th Shabaan occurs the birth anniversary of Imam Sajjad (A.S). He said that there is nothing by chance in the world. On the 3rd Shabaan is the birth of Imam Hussain (A.S). On the 4th is the birth of Hazrat Abbas Alamdar (A.S) and they occur one after the other and there is definitely a specific wisdom behind this as well. The movement of Hussain (A.S) started with the uprising of Imam Hussain (A.S) and with the loyalty of Hazrat Abbas Alamdar (A.S) it reached its climax and Imam Sajjad (A.S) and Bibi Zainab (S.A) took the message to the world.
He said that the duration of imamate of Hazrat Sajjad (A.S) is 35 years and at this time due to the harness of Ummayid and Marwan’s dynasty there was no opportunity of any movement. In these 35 years the Imam (A.S) took the pulpit only once and that was in the Ummayid mosque.
He said that to propagate the Islamic thought another way that Imam (A.S) adopted was to purchase the slaves and bond maids and then train them and release them on the eve of every year’s festival of Fitr. These slaves and bond maids would then go to their villages and towns and would then do the propagation of Islam there.
