  1. I personally don't think he should do something. He is doing fantastic job with guiding us. We don't want him to divert his attention to things that are not useful at all. Very similar to Grand Ayatollah. He is not going to go for every tom Richard and harry. There are tons of negative articles. But Grand Ayatollah does what he is suppose to do. He is not going to go and fight with those antishia websites. If someone does not have faith they can always try something else and see how that works out. At the end it is not you or me who decides whom Imam should guide - Verse (28:56) - It is true thou wilt not be able to guide every one, whom thou lovest; but Allah guides those whom He will and He knows best those who receive guidance (Yusuf Ali) Also this is my personal believe (not as an ismaili) that there will be never on this earth one type of institution that will be able to serve all mankind except before the day of judgement. Look up history all the prophets and all the Imams. This is the reason Allah says in Quran - O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things). We Ismailis in perticular and we Shias in general live in countries where we are minority, so we can't make our laws, it is best to ignore anti articles.
  2. I don't think he should. All the public figures have these kind of fake things against them. I don't think anyone cares. Remember Prophet Muhammad never opposed the lady who use to throw trash at him every time he use to pass by her home. She use to call him all bad names. So it is sunnat e rasol to ignore these kind of things. If I would be Imam, these kind of things would make be feel proud, this meant I am doing something good. No one talks about people who do nothing. But I am not Imam. According to me Aga Khan is Imam and he us following the footsteps of Prophet Muhammad by ignoring these kind of things. Imam Ali was very powerful. But he was also strong believer of forgive and forget. I think he is the one who said - “The first to apologize is the bravest. The first to forgive is the strongest. And the first to forget is the happiest.”
  3. Who cares what the gossip magazine says. This is nothing new. People has been talking bad about our prophets and Imams since ages. It has been decreased a lot for current aga khan. But if you go back, it was more for many periods in the history. See how people have treated prophet Muhammad and H. Ali. There are tons and tons of anti Muslim websites that talks bad about Prophet Muhammad and tons and tons of anti shia websites that talk bad about H. Ali. But those gossip magazines or anti websites does not make prophet Muhammad or H. Ali bad.
  4. Of-course she is not the Imam. The picture of Zahra drinking and smoking is a totally fake image. I have seen picture of H. Ali using Iphone (Nauzubillah) . But I won't believe it. Wahhabis even claim that our First Imam Ali use to drink. Just because someone is claiming something, I can't believe it. Her drinking or not does matter to me, that his her private life. She is not my Imam. But just because someone is not my Imam, I can't believe something that is total fake. I am calling it a fake image based on my professional background. I can replace Zahra with any other girl you want me replace her with.
  5. Hi Mansoor, I like your name. I am a fan of Mansoor al Hallaj. Where in the picture does it say that she is drinking Alcohol. It looks like she is opening a Champagne bottle. There are many non-alcoholic champagnes available in the market. They are basically sparkling water or Soda water. We believe that everyone is responsible for their own deeds. Allah will Judge each individual by his deeds only. Many of our prophets (not just prophet muhammad, even prophets before Muhammad) and Imam's (right from our first Imam, Imam Ali) had a lot of family members who did not follow the Islamic tenants properly. Allah will not judge anyone based on their wives, husbands, brothers, sons, daughters, uncles or aunts behavior. They will be judges on their own behavior.
  6. What is wrong in that. Mazar is Manifestation or proof or sign. When I look at nature, and when I look at mountains, those rivers flowing through mountains they are Mazar of Allah to me. In the same fashion, Aga Khan is Mazar of Allah for us. He is not the only Mazar, but he is very strong mazar for us. Allah's Noor is in every person. But to Ismailis that Noor is more visual in Aga Khan. Because we see him as a blessing from Allah to mankind. We see Aga Khan as a person who is living to help us be on right path. And this might not be true for you. For you he may be a rich guy who owns horses, who gets money from his followers, etc. And that is perfectly fine. As that is true as well. But for me he is my father, he is the person who sacrificed his happiness to see me grow. For me, he is the person who wants to help others (ismailis and non-ismailis) without asking anything in return. And he is no special. Popes and pasters, Sufis and Ulemas, Dais and mullahs and millions of other volunteers do the same thing. But he is special for me, as he showed me the light. Or at least i feel that way.
  7. Ismailis are prohibited from drinking alcohol.
  8. We Ismailis do believe in the Imammat of Imam Ali. That is the foundation of our faith as Ismaili Muslim.
  9. This is not true. Ismailis believe that Hazrat Ali is the first Imam. The Traditional Ismaili Greeting is “Ya Ali Madad”.
  10. A major Isma‘ili Shi‘ite dynasty, the Fatimids founded their own caliphate, in rivalry with the ‘Abbasids, and ruled over different parts of the Islamic world, from North Africa and Sicily to Palestine and Syria. Established in 297/909 in Tunisia, the seat of the Fatimids was later transferred to Egypt in 362/973. Following a succession dispute in 1094, one line of the Cairo based dynasty was finally overthrown by Salah-al-Din (Saladin) in 567/1171, when the fourteenth and last Fatimid caliph, al-‘Azid (555-67/1160-71), lay dying in Cairo. The Fatimids, who traced their ancestry to the Prophet’s daughter Fatima and her husband ‘Ali b. Abi Talib, the first Shi‘ite imam, were also acknowledged as the rightful imams by different Isma‘ili communities, but also in many other Muslim lands, including Persia and the adjacent regions (see Daftary, 1990, pp. 144-273, 615-59; Canard, “Fatimids,” pp. 850-62) http://iis.ac.uk/encyclopaedia-articles/fatimids
  11. Yes, you are correct (partially), Zahra Aga Khan is married to a Christian. But both her children are Muslims. I think it is permitted to marry people of the book.
