The unique aspect of the Imamat of Imam Javad (AS) was its start at a very young age. Two centuries after the Prophet’s demise, and after the Imamat of eight holy Imams among the Shia community, it was now time for the Shias to fully realize the elevated status of their Imams. The acceptance of the Imamat of a seven-and-a-half-year-old boy, who was far younger than the Islamic pubertal age of fifteen, was a practical lesson for the Shias to recognize that the Imamat is a position determined by God. Once the Shias verified the Imamat of Imam Javad, they became proud and regarded his young age as proof of their theology and verification of the divine teachings they had received from the previous Imams. Thus, they did not later object to the Imamat of Imam Hadi and Imam Mahdi, who also became Imams at a very young age.
