Is it a mere coincidence that the 7th divinely appointed Imam, Imam Musa ibn Ja’far al-Kadhim (A) was imprisoned by the Abbasid governmental establishment?

Finally, what are the two disciplines via which the religion of Allah has survived over the centuries despite the enmity of the most powerful of foes?
