Shia Muslims Mark Martyrdom of Imam Jawad

SHAFAQNA – Over a million mourners have flocked to Kadhimiya, a neighborhood in the Iraqi capital Baghdad in recent days to mark the martyrdom anniversary of the ninth Shia Imam, Imam Jawad. Martyred at the age of 25, Imam Jawad is known to have lived the shortest life compared to other Shia Imams. Despite his young age, he’s left behind profound teachings on Islamic law, theology and ethics which are still taught in Islamic seminaries.
