Detailed Answer:‎

Imam al-Baqir was born in the year 57 Hijri, in the city of Madinah. He was 39 years old at ‎the time of the death of his father, Imam Zayn al-‘Abidin (who passed away in 94 Hijri). His ‎name was Muhammad, while his kunya was Abu Ja’far, and his agnomens were al-Baqir and ‎Baqir al-‘Ulum.‎

His mother was Umm ‘Abdullah, the daughter of Imam Hasan al-Mujtaba. He was the first ‎person who was a Fatimi and an ‘Alawi from both his mother and father. Imam al-Baqir was ‎martyred in the year 114 Hijri, in the city of Madinah, and he was buried in the famous ‎graveyard of Baqi’. He was buried next to the grave of his father and grandfather. The period ‎of his Imamate was 18 years long. The 5th Imam lived contemporaneously with the ‎following caliphs:‎

‎1- Walid ibn ‘Abd al-Malik (86-96 Hijri)‎
‎2- Sulayman ibn ‘Abd al-Malik (96-99 Hijri)‎
‎3- ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-’Aziz (99-101 Hijri)‎
‎4- Yazid ibn ‘Abd al-Malik (101-105 Hijri)‎
‎5- Hisham ibn ‘Abd al-Malik (105-125 Hijri)‎

These caliphs, with the exception of ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-’Aziz, who was relatively just and ‎inclined towards the family of the Prophet Muhammad, were all tyrannical, despotic, and self-‎serving. They were no less tyrannical and oppressive than their forbearers, and they were ‎especially severe on Imam al-Baqir. ‎
