Martyr al-Sadr asked an important question: If we were Harun al-Rashid, wouldn’t we arrest Imam Kadhim (A.S)?

SHAFAQNA- Martyr Ayatollah Seyyed Mohammad Baqir al-Sadr asked believers and Muslims to compare themselves to Harun al-Rashid in having lust for life.

He said “We think we are better than Harun al-Rashid. We think we are more virtuous and pious than Harun al-Rashid. Why?! Was the Harun al-Rashid’s world offered to us and we didn’t accept it that now we say that we are more virtuous than him?
My children! My brothers! O sons of Imam Ali (A.S), was the Harun al-Rashid’s world offered to us? No, only a small limited world is available to us. A world that would be vanished and lost very soon. A world that is not as extended as the world of Harun al-Rashid.
Harun al-Rashid looked at the clouds and said: ‘Wherever you rain, the people will pay me the tax on you.’ Because of such a world he arrested Imam Musa Ibn Ja’far (A.S). Have we tested ourselves? Has such a world come to us? Have we ever asked ourselves such a question? Everyone should ask himself this question that whether such world, the world that Harun al-Rashid was forced to arrest Imam Musa Ibn Ja’far (A.S) because of it, is handed in to us that now we think we are more virtuous than Harun al-Rashid?”
