Jafar ibn Ali al-Hadi
Hazrat Jafar bin Ali bin Muḥammad ( 226-271 A.H.) who was known to Ja’far Kazzab and he was the son of the tenth Imam, Ali al-Hadi. By great intelligence, actions & adventures, he established Ja’fariyyas of the sect.
Jafar b. Ali b. Muḥammad ( 226-271 A.H.) was the son of the tenth Imam, Ali al-Hadi and the brother of eleventh Imam Hasan al-Askari. Also, he had one older brother, Muhammad who died before his father's death.
After Ali al-Hadi of death
After the death of Ali al-Hadi, Jafar b. Ali claimed Imamate and he founded followers. The biographers attribute to him as Kazzab (liar). Muhammadyyas and Twelver believes that he was immoral. However, it is unexpected that Shia considers Imam as one who acts contrary to the orders of religion but it seems that these reports are somewhat correct. For his followers in defense of him, said: "Jafar's personality changed comparison when he was young." He tried to be al-Askari in jail, though he always failed in his efforts. Jafar b. Ali's followers became famous Ja’fariyyas and al-Askari's followers were known Twelver.
After Hasan al-Askari of death
After the death of Hasan al-Askari, even though, al-Askari's mother was still alive, Jafar requested his property. He claimed that his brother never had a son. On the other hand, according to the Mohammad-Baqer Majlesi, he hid his son, for fear of his brother, Jafar, who was coveted to his property. Later, between Twelver, he became famous to Ja’far, The Liar (Kazzab) and when he repented, he got the title of Tawwab (the repentant).
