Accompanying Imam al-Husayn (a)
When Imam al-Husayn (a) moved from Mecca to Medina, 'Abd Allah b. Ja'far wrote a letter to the Imam (a), trying to change the Imam's mind. He sent the letter through his sons Muhammad and 'Awn, but when Ja'far realized that the Imam (a) is determined to go, he advised Muhammad and 'Awn to accompany the Imam (a).
On the Day of 'Ashura, Muhammad went towards the court of battle and said, "I complain to God about the oppression of the people who are going astray blindly, those who have changed the signs of the Qur'an and its clear statements, and have manifested infidelity and rebellion."
It is reported that he fought bravely and killed ten warriors of enemy's army, but at the end was killed by 'Amir b. Nahshal al-Tamimi.
