The eighth Imam reached the Imamate, after the death of his father, through Divine Command and the decree of his forefathers.
The period of his Imamate coincided with the caliphate of Haroon and then his sons Amin and Mamoon. After the death of his
father, Mamoon fell into conflict with his brother Amin which led to bloody wars and finally the assassination of Amin, after which Mamoon became caliph. Until that day the policy of the Abbasid caliphate toward the Shi'ites had been increasingly harsh and cruel.
