Imamat Day is celebrated every year by Ismaili Shia Muslims on the day that the Imamat transferred from the past Imam to the Present Living Imam. The current Imam is the direct successor in the chain of 49 Imams when Hazrat Ali was appointed as Prophet Muhammad's successor. This anniversary is celebrated with great rejoicing by the followers of the Imam, for it is a unique occasion full of symbolism wherein the continuance of Allah's covenant is celebrated.
"Those who follow the messenger, the Prophet, the Ummi (who can neither read nor write), whom they will find described in the Torah and the Gospel (which are) with them. He will enjoin on them that which is right and forbid them that which is wrong. He will make lawful for them all good things and prohibit for them only the foul; and he will relieve them of their burden and the fetters that they used to wear. Then those who believe in him, and honour him, and help him, and follow the Light which is sent down with him: they are the successful ones." - Quran 7:157
This year, we are celebrating the 55th anniversary of the Present Living Imam's accession to the seat of Imamat.
