The Ismaili Muslims are the second largest part of the Shi'a community, after the mainstream Twelvers. The Ismaili are named for their acceptance of Ismaili Ibn Ja'far as the divinely appointed spiritual successor to Ja'far as-Sadiq. Today, the Ismailis are known for their focus on the mystical path and nature of Allah, as opposed to a more literalistic view.
