Aslam o alykum.. I wanted to ask a question many of my fellows ask me that why imam ali bin hussain a.s is considered to be a zaidi imam when he never participated in any jihad or war with sword..as that is a requirement for an imam that he should fight against the tyrant rulers ?? How it can be answered ??

wa alaykum as salaam, yaa Ali!

Thank you for your question! We addressed a similar question long ago. You can refer to it here . However, the gist of it is that Zaydis don't consider Imam Zayn al-Abideen (as) as an imam because he had not fulfilled the requirements. He is respected as an imam of knowledge and reference for such; but he was not obligatory upon the ummah to obey because he had not manifested the call (dawah) to himself.

And Allah knows best!

No problem!

Well, as we mentioned in the link we provided, Zaidis do not typically number the imams sequentially so that there is a fifth, sixth, seventh, etc imam. Rather, we hold to the imamate of any Fatimi sayyid who meet the criteria. There would therefore be no reason to number imams sequentially.

Hopefully this helps!
