  • Notes 
    • eldest son of Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq . Isma'il was an Imam of the Isma'ili branch of the Imami Shi'a . According to both Nizari and Mustaali he is the sixth Imam.
      Most Sh traditions acknowledge Ja'far al- thought his son, Ism ibn Ja'far "al-Mub would be heir to the Imamate . However, Ism predeceased his father.
      Some of the Sh claimed Ism had not died, but rather gone into occultation , but the proto-Ism group accepted his death and therefore that his eldest son, Mu?ammad ibn Isma'il , was now Im Mu remained in contact with this "Mub group, most of whom resided in Kufah .
      In contrast, most Twelvers believe that because of the death of the designated heir, Ja'far appointed Musá al-Kazim , another son, the new Im Musa was 28 years younger than Isma'il. This is the initial point of divergence between the proto-Twelvers and the proto-Ism This disagreement over the proper heir to Ja'far has been a point of contention between the two groups ever since.
      Some Twelver believe that Ismail was never given the nuss (designation of the Imamate), while others believe he was such as Al-Shaykh al-Saduq , however the designation was changed, called badah.
