Biography of ISMAIL IBN JAFAR (¿-762)

Seventh and last imam of Shiism septimano (minority branch of Islam), successor of Jafar al-Sadiq, and descendant of the dynasty alida, of the lineage of Ali, cousin and son-in-law of Muhammad.

The septimanos or Ismaili Shiites recognize only seven imams, and argue that the successor to Jafar was his son Ismail. Although it seems that it died before his father, the septimanos Shiites believe that in reality is hidden waiting for the time to appear in the world to install in the realm of Justice and punish the wicked and ungodly.
