Isma‘il ibn Ja‘far (Arabic: إسماعيل بن جعفر‎; c. Born:Shawwal 100 AH/719 AD) was the eldest son of Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq, and he was the full-brother of Abdullah al-Aftah. Following Ja'far's death, the Shia community split between the element that would become the Twelver Shia, and those who believed the Imamate passed through to Ismail's son; the Ismaili branch of Shia Islam is accordingly named for Ismail.[1] According to both the Nizari and Mustaali Shia sects, he is the sixth Imam. He was buried in Jannat al-Baqi

Ismâil ben Jafar (arabe إسماعيل بن جعفر ismāīl ben jafar) est né à Médine entre 719 et 722. Fils aîné du sixième imam chiite (Jafar as-Sâdiq), il est probablement mort avant son père en laissant un héritier son fils Muhammad. Ses partisans créèrent la Dawa des ismaéliens contre son frère cadet Mûsa qui devint le septième imâm à la tête des imâmites.

Les califes abbassides considéraient les imâms chiites comme de dangereux concurrents sur le plan religieux et comme des adversaires politiques potentiels. Les imâms étaient donc étroitement surveillés. Le calife al-Mansûr essaya d’inviter Jafar et son fils Ismail à Bagdad dans le but de les surveiller plus étroitement. Ismâil étant le successeur désigné, son père le tenait à l’écart de ses autres enfants pour le protéger. Lors d’absences de Jafar à Médine c’était Ismâil qui tenait le rôle d’imâm.

Il circule de nombreuses versions de sa disparition. La plus simple dit qu’il serait mort en 762 trois ans avant son père. Une autre affirme que l’enterrement qui eut lieu en 762 n’était qu’une feinte pour échapper à la vindicte du calife. Dans cette hypothèse, Ismâil serait mort en 775 dix ans après son père. Il aurait terminé sa vie en restant caché et il aurait donné à son fils Muhammad al-Maktûm l’ordre d’administrer la communauté en son nom. Une autre c'est qu'il aurait disparu, qu'il n'est pas mort mais occulté.



[...The sixth imam, Ja'far al-Sadiq, had appointed (naṣṣ) his son Isma'il ibn Ja'far as his successor, but Isma'il died before his father, and when al-Sadiq himself died in 765, the succession was left open. One faction of Shi'a held that al-Sadiq had designated another son, Musa al-Kazim, as his heir. Others followed other sons, Muhammad and Abdallah al-Aftah—after his death shortly after they went over to Musa's camp—or even refused to believe that al-Sadiq had died, and expected his return as a messiah.[2] Musa's adherents, who constituted the majority of al-Sadiq's followers, followed his line down to the twelfth imam, Muhammad al-Mahdi, who vanished in 874.[1][3] Another branch considered that Ja'far was followed by a seventh imam, who also had gone into hiding; hence this party is known as the Seveners. The exact identity of that seventh imam was disputed, but by the late 9th century had commonly been identified with Muhammad, son of Isma'il and grandson of al-Sadiq.

From Muhammad's father, Isma'il, the sect receives its name of "Isma'ili".[1][4][5] Neither Isma'il's nor Muhammad's lives are well known, and ater Muhammad's death during the reign of Harun al-Rashid (r. 786–809, the history of the early Isma'ili movement becomes obscure.[..] re: Shi'isme in the 9th century https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abdallah_al-Mahdi_Billah
