And without the least doubt Imam Al-Kadhim (peace be upon him) was a shining luminary who continues to glow radiantly till this day as Bab al-Hawa’ej or the Gateway of Needs. The patience and forbearance of Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (peace be upon him) was such that he was given the title of Al-Kadhim meant Restrainer of Anger or Emotions, since he (peace be upon him) was subjected to very harsh treatment and periods of imprisonment by the tyrannical Abbasid regime. He (peace be upon him) was the embodiment of virtue and generosity. He (peace be upon him) devoted his nights to the prayers of God and his days to fasting. He (peace be upon him) always forgave those who did wrong to him. His kind and generous attitude towards the people was such that he used to patronize and help the poor and destitute of Medina and provide for them cash, food, clothes and other necessitates of sustenance secretly. It continued to be a riddle for the receivers of gifts throughout the Imam's lifetime as to who their benefactor was, but the secret was not revealed until after his death.

Succeeding his father Imam Ja’far as-Sadeq (peace be upon him) whose famous school of Medina contained 4000 scholars including the Father of Chemistry, Jaber ibn Hayyan. Imam Al-Kadhim (peace be upon him) also groomed various scholars in different branches of science. One of these disciples was the brilliant rhetorician Hesham bin Hakam.
