Document Type : Original Article



The inception of Imamate of Imam Kazem (AS) was simultaneous
with the pervasion of challenge of vicegerency in the minds of
Imam Sadeq’s Shiites. The study of prophetic traditions shows that
the Household of Prophet has been so designed that in the time
of challenge and trouble the principles of knowing the Imam are at
people’s disposal. The text, knowledge and the claim of Imamate are
among the means of removal of wonder. The public belief is in the
self-introduction of Imam while the teachings of Prophet’s Household
and disciples are the key players on the ground. This essay is a
pathology of this challenge.
