Mohammad Ezzuddin

Mausoleum Muhammad Ezzuddin, Zabeed, Yemen

Syedna Mohammad Ezzuddin (died 1539 / 27th Safar, AH 946AH in Zabeed -Yemen) was the 23rd Dai of the Dawoodi Bohra, a sub-sect of Isma'ili Shi'i Islam.[1] The Dawoodi Bohra trace their belief system back to Yemen, where it evolved from the Fatimid Caliphate and where they were persecuted due to their differences from mainstream Sunni Islam and Zaydi Islam. Around 1530 CE, the Dawat (the sect's religious organisation) was relocated to India.

He succeeded the 22nd Dai, Ali Shamshuddin, and conferred succession on Yusuf Najmuddin. Muhammad Izzuddin was the 17th Dai from Ale Waleed and the last of Duat Kiram from Yemen.
