Imam Musa al-Kadhim (AS) and Prison Guards

Imam Musa al-Kadhim (AS) and Prison Guards

 In the time of our 7th Imam, Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (AS) the ruler was a bad man called Haroon Rasheed, who hated Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (AS).Haroon Rasheed came to Madina where Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (AS) lived and had Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (AS) arrested and sent to a prison in Basra.

Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (AS) stayed in this prison under the guard of a man called Yahyah.
 Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (AS) was a kind man who always talked nicely to everyone, even Yahyah who kept him in prison. Soon Yahyah felt bad for keeping such a nice person in prison.
Haroon Rasheed found out and took Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (AS) to another prison. Again Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (AS) through his kindness and politeness made the other person also feel bad.

The cruel Caliph, Haroon Rasheed, poisoned the food of Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (AS) in the prison of Baghdad. The dose proved fatal and the 7th Imam, Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (AS) kissed martyrdom.

Moral: No matter how horrible someone is to you, you should always be nice to them and soon they will feel bad about how horrible they are being to you.
