Maqtal-writing pertains to recording the details of the tragic events that led to the killing of an individual or some people. Although some maqtals have been written about the slain rulers and some prominent people, they have not received the due attention as those of the Ashura personalities. The maqtals written by certain companions of Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq were records of the way other Infallible Imams and other prominent dignitaries were martyred. Based on the earlier sources written by al-Najashi and al-Tusi, the present work produces a survey of the Maqtal-writing trends among the companions of Imam al-Sadiq.
