  • Notes 
    • M al-K became the seventh Shi'ah Imam at the age of 21. According to the Kitab al-Irshad of Sheikh al-Mufid :
      Among the shaykhs of the followers of Abu Abd Allah Ja'far al-Sadiq, peace be on him, his special group (khassa), his inner circle and the trustworthy righteous legal scholars, may God have mercy on them, who report the clear designation of the Imamate by Abu Abd Allah Jafars peace be on him, for his son, Abu al-Hasan Musa, peace be on him, are: al-Mufaddal b. Umar al-Jufi, Mu'adh b. Kathir, Abd al-Rahman b. al-Hajjaj, al-Fayd b. al-Mukhtar, Yaqub al-Sarraj, Sulayman b. Khalid, Safwan al-Jammal... [That designation] is also reported by his two brothers, Ishaq and Ali, sons of Jafar, peace be on him.
      Some Shi'ah believe that the eldest son of Imam Ja'far, namely Isma'il ibn Jafar , received the Imamate rather than M al-K They also believe Isma'il went into hiding at his father's command (known as the Lesser Occultation ) while Twelvers believe he predeceased his father and therefore was never appointed Imam. The descendents of the supporters of Isma'il's Imamate today comprise the Ismaili , which includes several independent groups.

      In 795, Harun al-Rashid imprisoned M al-K four years later, he ordered Sindi ibn Shahiq to poison Musa. M al-K body now rests within al Kadhimiya Mosque in Kadhimayn , Iraq

      Quotes
      The best generosity is the help to the oppressed.
      The world is soft and beautiful like a snake but there is a fatal poison hidden inside.
      Reliance on Allah has grades. One of them is that you rely on Him in every matter and be pleased with whatever He decides for you and know that He never hesitates in providing you any good and grace and that every decision is from Him so leave every affair to His will and rely and put trust only in Him
      One who gives circulation to a sin is banished and forsaken and the one who covers a sin will be forgiven by God
      Every person who strives to obtain Halaal (permissible) sustenance or provision is like a fighter in the path of God
