The Concept of Imama

‘Imama’ literally means ‘leadership’.
In Islamic terminology an ‘Imam’ is one who has universal authority in all religious and secular affairs in succession to the Prophet (pbuh) (This should not be confused with the Imam who leads prayers for he does not have absolute command).
