Alī ar-Riḍāʿ


Alī ar-Riḍāʿ

▪ Shīʿite imam
in full  Abū Al-ḥasan Ibn Mūsā Ibn Jaʿfar ʿalī Ar-riḍā 
born 765/768/770, Medina, Arabia [now in Saudi Arabia]
died 818, Ṭūs, Iran

      eighth imam of the Twelver Shīʿites, noted for his piety and learning until 817, when the caliph al-Maʾmūn (Maʾmūn, al-), in an attempt to heal the division between the majority Sunnites and the Shīʿites, appointed him his successor. The appointment aroused varying reactions—few of them, even among the Shīʿites, wholly favourable—and Iraq, already irritated by al-Maʾmūn's transfer of the capital from Baghdad to Merv and by other offenses, rose up in rebellion. Al-Maʾmūn gradually changed his policy. The court party set out from Merv for Baghdad, and on the way ʿAlī ar-Riḍā died, after a brief illness, at Ṭūs. Shīʿite historians attribute his death to poison, possibly administered by the caliph himself. His shrine (mashhad) at Ṭūs became a pilgrimage place and gave its name to the city (Mashhad, or Meshed, in Iran). Many miracles are attributed to ʿAlī ar-Riḍā by the Shīʿites.
