Because of his mother Sabra Khatoon, a Safawi princess, Imam Murad Meerza enjoyed cordial relations with the royal Safavid family. The Imam was extremely respected and loved, and as such, a world of opportunities were offered to the Ismailis in small trade, farming, military and civil services (Aziz, 1974). Imam Murad Meerza passed away in Anjudan and was succeeded by his son Zilfiqar Aly (Sadik Ali, 1997).
