Tauris, 2004,
1850435928, 9781850435921, 208 pages. Imam Muhammad al-Baqir was one of the most erudite
Muslims of his age and played a significant role in the history of early Islam. At once a versatile
leader and scholar, he was also an authority on the exegesis of the Qur'an, the traditions of the
Prophet, and all matters relating to the rites, rituals, and practice of Islam. Using hitherto largely
ignored Shi'i sources, Arzina R. Lalani explores al-Baqir's pivotal contributions to Islamic thought in

Arzina R. Lalani presents a fascinating scholarly study of the fifth Islamic Shia Imam Al-Baqir. The
author looks at several key aspects of the Imam's life, circumstances, and teachings in a highly
engaging and approachable manner. I also appreciated the author's extensive notes which allow for
a more in depth study of additional topics at a later time. This book was a pleasure to read and one I
strongly recommend for anyone interested in learning more about a true pillar of Islamic thought and
philosophy. Ahmad Hassan, author of the Science of the Quran: Proving God's Existence through
Established Modern Science.
