Orations of Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq (a.s.)

The orations of Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq appeared in Kitab al-Kafi by Abu Ja’far Muhammad al-Kulayni (d. 949 AC), who is considered as the foremost compiler of traditions of the Shia Imams of Ahl al-Bayt.

More recently, the orations were published in an Arabic work on Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq by the prominent Shia scholar, the late Shaykh Mohammed al-Husayn al-Muzaffar. This Arabic work was published several times by the Theological Schools in Najaf and Qum.

An English translation of the Arabic work was done by Jasim al-Rasheed and published in 2007 in Qum, Iran under the title Imam al-Sadiq. The below excerpts are adapted from Rasheed’s translation.
