Imam al-Baqir (AS) made a great scientific movement which reached its peak at the time of his son Imam al-Sadiq (AS).
During his imamate, a great step was taken towards organization of Shia thought in different fields including ethics, jurisprudence, theology, exegesis, etc. According to historical sources he was present at Battle of Karbala as a child.
The 7th day of the lunar Hijri month of Dhul Hajja (July 28 this year) marks the anniversary of Imam Baqir’s (AS) martyrdom.
