In the Name of Allah the Compassionate the Merciful
Allah did choose Adam and Noah, the family of Abraham, and the family of Imran above all people; offspring, one of the other: And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.
And Allah only wishes to remove all abomination from you, ye members of the Family, and to make you pure and spotless.
Say: No reward do I ask of you for this except the love of those near of kin. And if any one earns any good, We shall give him an increase of good in respect thereof: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Ready to appreciate.
To the inspired, creative mind in the Islamic world…
To the conscience of humanity and the leader of social justice…
To the trustee of the Holy Prophet (S) and the gate of science, Imam Ali (as)…
I dedicate this collection, which is about the life of his successor, Imam Jafar al-Sadiq (as) who filled the world with knowledge and science.
Hope that this piece of work will be accepted and wish it to be a reward from Allah (SwT) at the day when meeting His Majesty.
