Ibadi Dynasty

    Ibadi Dynasty

    Omani dynasty. Over the past twelve centuries, the Ibadi community of Oman has elected sixty-one imams of different dynasties. Ibadi political power in Oman began with the seizure of power by the first publicly elected imam, al-Julanda ibn Masud (r. 749 – 741 ), who was slain in battle by the Abbasids. The imamate was revived in 793 under Muhammad ibn Affan . The Ibadis continued to elect imams under Abbasid rule after 893 and exercise considerable authority. Imam Nasir ibn Murshid al-Yarubi (r. ca. 1624 – 49 ) established the Ibadi dynasty during the struggle against Portuguese colonial dominance. This dynasty was replaced by the present ruling family in 1959 , currently headed by Sultan Qabus.
