On Thursday, July 20th, the IECOC will be commemorating the life of Imam Jafar bin Muhammad al-Sadiq (as).
Imam al-Sadiq (as) is the sixth Imam and successor to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). He was born and martyred in the city of Medina, where he established a platform to disseminate the knowledge of his forefathers to the followers of Ahlulbayt, as well as to other Muslims and non-Muslim who sought his wisdom. The Jafari school of thought is named after him, for it is during his life that the jurisprudential thought of the Ahlulbayt became prominent through his efforts.
All are welcome to attend this program.
