Devotees mourn Imam Sadiq martyrdom anniversary in Iran’s Mashhad

A group of mourners took to Imam Reza’s shrine in the northeastern Iranian city of Mashhad on Saturday to commemorate the sixth Shia Imam, Ja’afar al-Sadiq, on his martyrdom anniversary.

Black flags were conspicuously visible in various parts of the shrine of the 8th Shia Iamam in Mashhad as a symbol of grieving.

Imam Sadiq, a descendant of Prophet Muhammad, was a leading scholar and jurisprudent in the eighth century.

He was the founder of the Ja’fari school of jurisprudence.

Imam Sadiq was poisoned to death by the Abbassi ruler in 765 AD at the age of 64 and buried in the Baqi’ cemetery in the Saudi city of Medina.
