imam hadi(as)

Imam Ali Al-Naqi (A.S.) known as Hazrat Hadi was born in the mid of ZilHajj, 212 Hijrah in the vicinity of Madina, at a place known as Surya.

His father is Imam Javad (A.S.) his mother Samana was a maid with excellence, virtue and piety. Imam (A.S.) got the post of Imamate after the martyrdom of his father in the year 220 Hijrah.

Although he was not more than 8 years of age, yet he was the focus of the attention of Shias and the Abbasade caliphs were extremely scared and afraid of him.

They set their hand to his exile and torture. Such as "Mutawakkil" brought Imam (A.S.) from Madina to Samarra and he stayed then till the end of his life.


The Tenth Holy Imam (A.S.) like his father was also elevated to the rank of Imam in his childhood. He was six years old when his father Imam Muhammad al-Javad (A.S.) was martyred.

Like his father, Imam Hadi (a.s) attained the position of Imamate at a very tender age, and in this position he guided and led the people.

From his early childhood Imam Hadi (a.s) was a perfect model of Islam. He was free of all faults and defects, and was adorned with all good qualities and virtues. It was for this reason that the people called him “Naqi" which means pure and holy, and "Hadi" which means guide.
