Abstract: Imams acknowledgement Hadith is one of the continuous valid Hadiths between Shiites and Sunnis. This has been focused by the researchers due to a multidimensional issue. But, a significant question is that what is meant by death of ignorance? Responding the question, two perspectives have been raised by researchers; some believe that the death of ignorance means dying while being infidel, hypocrite and unbeliever; others say it means dying while being in the state of sin and rebellion but not blasphemy. Researcher believes that, we cant excommunicate someone due to his/her ignorance toward the present Imam.
