Imam Baqir (AS)
Imam Baqir a.s wasborn in Medina on the1
st
of Rajab in the 57
th
year of Hijri. The nameBaqir means
Splitter of Knowledge
which wasvery fitting for a manwho became renownedfor his knowledge,teachings andeloquence. Like all theprophets and theimams, Imam Baqir hadhis share of enemies.His biggest enemy was the caliph HishamIbn Abdul Malik. He was an immoral andracist man who had a fierce hatred of non-Arab Muslims and would force them topay double the taxes.Imam Baqir always stayed away frompolitics knowing that it was a corruptsystem. In an effort to humiliate ImamBaqir, Hisham called the imam to see himin Damascus, thinking he could beat himin an arrow shooting duel. While hishamshot what he thought were great shots byhitting his targets, Imam Baqir calmly tookthe bow and arrow and shocked everyonein the room but continuously hitting themiddle of the target as only thedescendant of imam Ali could. Hishamand the others were shocked at this showof precision and skill. Hashim continuedhis attempts of insulting the imam bychallenging imamat and the virtues of theahlubayt; however he failed miserably atthe hands of the much wiser and muchmore educated imam. Fearing that ImamBaqir couldsteal thehearts of thepeople, heallowed himto go back toMedina.While inMedina, heoversaw theopenings of many schoolsof theologyand four hundredbooks

Whoever recites ten verses on a night is not written among the heedless. Whoever recites fiftyverses is written among those who praise (Allah). Whoever recites a hundred verses is writtenamong the obedient. Whoever recites two hundred verses is written among the humble.Whoever recites three hundred verses is written among the successful. Whoever recites fivehundred verses is written among the strives. Whoever recites a thousand verses, a hundredweight of gold is written for him.Al-Bayan fi Tafsir al-Quran p 25
 
Imam Baqir's (AS) brother Zayd hung by the tyrant.
The poet saidDismiss the rooster from Zayd's brainas long as the chickens did not tread on him(He is) the grandson of the Prophet, the noblest of all Allah'screatures, the adornment of the delegations and pilgrims.
 
The Rafida
Source (Mohammedal-Baqir by Baqir Sharif al-Qarashi, p 241)
 Abu Basir related. He said: [I said to Abu Ja'far:]”May I be ransom for you. We havebeen given a name. Through the name, therulers have regarded as lawful our blood,our porperties, and our torture”. He, peacebe on him, asked:“What is it?” “The Rafida”  He peace be upon him, answered:“Allah has given you this name.” This name has become a signpost for the shias who spare no effort to spread social reform in the earth. However, those whohave no morals find fault with them. The shias boast of it, for it has become proof for their love of the members of the House(ahlul bayt), peace be on them, “from whom Allah has taken away uncleanliness and whom He has purified completely. Imam al-Shafi'i boasted of this name whenhe said:“If the love of the family of Mohammed israfid, then let jin and men (thaqalan) testifythat I am rafidi.” 
Read the Quran
 Abu Basir reported  Imam al-Baqir (peace be upon him) said “Recite the Quran in an intermediaterecitation. Let your family listen (to that). Read the Quran with a good voice. Indeed  Allah likes the reciting the Quran with a good voice.” Al-Bayan fi Tafsir al-Quran p.210translation from The Life of Imam Mohammed al-Baqir by Baqir Sharif al-Qarashi p 165
