Jaafarites

a Mohammedan sect who held in highest reverence the memory of Jaafar, the sixth of the twelve Imams. An unsuccessful attempt was made by Nadir Shah to assimilate the Persian Mohammedanism to that of the Turks, acknowledging Jaafar as the head of the new national faith. (See IMAMS, THE TWELVE).
