Were All The Imams (as) Martyred?

 

حَدَّثَنا مُحَمَّد بن مُوسَى بن المُتِوَكِّل‏ رَضِىَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قالَ حَدَّثَنا عَلِيٍّ بن إِبراهِيم بن هاشِمٍ عَن أبِيهِ عَن أبي الصلت عَبد السلام بن صالح الهروي قالَ سَمِعتُ الرِّضا عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ يَقُولُ: واللَّهِ مَا مِنَّا إِلا مَقْتُولٌ شَهِيدٌ

Muhammad ibn Musa ibn al-Mutawakkil – may God be pleased with him – narrated that Ali ibn Ibrahim ibn Hashem quoted on the authority of his father, on the authority of Abil Salt al-Harawi that he had heard Al-Reza (as) say,

“By God! None of Us, but will be killed and become a martyr.”
[Source: Uyoon Al Akhbar Ar Riza, Chapter. 66, Hadees. 9]

There is a similar hadees from Imam Sadiq (as) also as quoted by Allama Majlisi

وذهب كثير من أصحابنا إلى أن الائمة خرجوا من الدنيا على الشهادة، واستدلوا بقول الصادق عليه السلام: والله ما منا إلا مقتول شهيد

“And it has come from many of our companions that the Imam’s (as) went from this world on Shahadat and used as evidence the saying of Imam Sadiq (as) , “By God! None of Us, but will be killed and become a martyr.”

[Source: Bihar Al Anwar, Allama Majlisi, Vol. 27, Pg. 209]
