The Burial of Imam Ḥusayn’s (‘a) By Imam Sajjād (‘a) While he Was Still a Captive

Question: How did Imam Sajjād (‘a) go to Karbala and bury the body of his father while he was still a prisoner?
Concise answer:
Detailed answer: A question is asked how Imam Sajjād (‘a) buried the body of his father while he was himself a prisoner. We have many narrations which mention how each Imam (‘a) is shrouded and buried by the succeeding Imam (‘a) and this is in accordance to Shia theology. For example, there is a tradition from Imam Riḍā (‘a) which mentions this point in response to ‘Alī ibn Ḥamzah: The same one who gave ‘Alī ibn al-Ḥusayn (‘a) the power (during his period of captivity) to go to Karbala and bury the body of his father, has also given me the power to go to Baghdad and take charge of the affairs of my father (Imam Musā ibn Ja‘far (‘a)) and to then return. There is the difference though that the Imam (‘a) was not a captive like ‘Alī ibn al-Ḥusayn (‘a).[1] [2]
