(life of Imam Hadi (AS
Ali b. Muhammad al-Hadi (a.s) is the tenth Shi‘a Imam. His father was Imam Muhammad b. Ali al-Jawad (a.s) and his mother was a woman named Sumanah
He was born in the village of Sarya on the outskirts of Madinah in the month of Rajab 212/827. Historical sources describe Imam al-Hadi (a.s) as being of medium height and having a very dark complexion, similar to his father Imam al-Jawad (a.s) and grandfather Imam al-Ridha (a.s
Imam al-Hadi (a.s) had to bear great responsibilities at a very young age due to the fact his father Imam al-Jawad (a.s) was summoned to Baghdad from Madinah when Imam al-Hadi (a.s) was no older than six years old. While his father was in Baghdad, Imam al-Hadi (a.s) took his place in Madinah, running his affairs. Less than a year later his father died, leaving him to assume the position of Imamate.
Imam al-Hadi (a.s) was a very humble man. His wealth of knowledge and great social standing increased his popularity among lay people, who believed that he truly reflected the behavior encouraged by Islam.
