Outgoing Shahi Imam of Delhi’s Jama Masjid, Syed Ahmed Bukhari, on Sunday announced his son Syed Shaban Bukhari as his successor. Shaban Bukhari succeeded his father as the new imam of Jama Masjid, before which he was the Naib Imam.

Shaban Bukhari was banned on the auspicious occasion of Shab-e-Barat. Shahi Imam Syed Ahmad Bukhari announced Shaban Mukhari as the 14th Shahi Imam by wearing a turban. During this he told about the history of Jama Masjid that the first Shahi Imam was appointed by Emperor Shah Jahan.

400 year old tradition

Ahmad Bukhari said, the first Imam of Jama Masjid (Hazrat Syed Abdul Ghafoor Shah Bukhari, Shahi Imam) was appointed Shahi Imam at the age of 63. According to traditions, Imams have announced this to their successors during their lifetime. Therefore, according to the tradition of more than 400 years, I declare from this Jama Masjid that Syed Shaban Bukhari is my successor. He made this announcement before a gathering of Islamic scholars and other dignitaries. After this announcement, according to the old ‘customs’ associated with ornamentation, ‘dastarbandi’ started to be tied on the head.
