Isma`iliyya

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


In this section we hope to include translated works of the Ismailis, those who believe that the Imamate went from Ja`far as-Sadiq to his eldest son Isma`il, and then to the latter’s son Muhammad, with one section identifying the latter as having gone into occultation as the awaited Qa’im, and the other section continuing the Imamate to the Fatimid caliphs of Egypt (and then further subdividing based on contested succession claims).


Kitabu 'r-Rushd wa 'l-Hidayat - One of the earliest surviving Isma`ili textual fragments, giving exegesis of the Quran in regards to the doctrine of the Seven Natiqs, etc.
