Musa al-Kazim ibn Jafar as Sadiq (Arabic: الإمام موسى الكاظم‎) (November 10, 745, Medina – September 4, 799, Baghdad) was the seventh of the twelve Shiite Imams.
At the age of 21, he was nominated Imam by the majority of the Shi'ite community, after his father has been murdered by the Abbasids.
However, his nomination was not without controversy, as Musa was not the eldest son, but Isma'il (Ismail bin Jafar), whose supporters split from mainstream Shi'a on that grounds, forming the Ismaili branch of Shi'ite Islam.
