Didar of the Qur’an al-Natiq – The Speaking Qur’an | Diamond Jubilee Imamat Day

And we have vested [the knowledge and authority] of all things within the Manifest Imam [Imam-i Mubin]

–Q. 36:12 – Ismaili Dua – Part 2

The Qur’an is a book inscribed between two covers. It cannot do without an interpreter.

–Hazrat Imam ‘Ali (a.s.)

The course of wisdom… requires that there be a person put in charge of [the Jamat]… The community will thus follow his [the Imam’s] practice and the commandments of Allah will be ever-fresh… [This] person… is the Imam chosen on behalf of Allah!

–Da’i Hamid al-Din al-Kirmani (d. 1021 CE)
