  1. Ismaili Aga Khanis

    Once "Say I AM" actually gets inside a JK and realizes that the Aga Khan is worshipped to the same extent that Jesus is in Christianity, he will run away from Nizari Ismailism. I hope.
  2. I bet a DNA test will prove that the Aga Khan is not even a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). But of course the impostor that is the Aga Khan would never submit to a DNA test. The acts of worship of the Nizari Ismailis (practiced inside their JKs) are enough to show that the Aga Khan is an impostor. Their acts of worship have more shirk and heresy in them than that of the Christians with Prophet Isa (AS) and their rites such as Eucharist. Such acts of worship (as the Ismailis have) could never have anything to do with Islam.
  3. Are Ismaili muslims?

    Muslims pray in masjids and do namaz. The one thing in common for everyone who does Hajj is the above. Anyone who prays in a JK and says du'aa instead of the above is not a Muslim. The Aga Khan is a fraud. Anyone who gets inside a JK (the name of the worship place of Nizari Ismailis) to see what Nizari Ismailis actually do in there will see that very quickly. They are practicing shirk and heresy in their JKs. That is why they do not allow any non-Ismailis inside their JKs.

  5. Are Ismaili muslims?

    Because Nizari Ismailis are not exposed to the Qur'an, they are fond of arguing that there are only three prayer times mentioned in the Qur'an. However, here's what I see mentioned in the Qur'an: (1) The Dawn Prayer (Fajr in Arabic) given in 24:58 (2) The Noon Prayer (Dhuhr in Arabic) , given in 30:18 (3) The Afternoon Prayer (Asr in Arabic), given in 11:114, 2:238 (4) The Sunset Prayer (Maghrib in Arabic), given in 11:114, 30:18 (5) The Night Prayer (Isha in Arabic), given in 11:114, 24:58 For example, in 11:114, it states: "Establish worship at the two ends of the day and in some watches of the night. Lo! good deeds annul ill-deeds. This is reminder for the mindful." This alone shows 3 prayers after the morning (Fajr) prayer [given in 24:58] and the noon (Zuhr) prayer [given in 30:18]. Nizari Ismailis say their "Holy (shirk infested) Du'a" once in the morning (when they wake up, which is normally anytime before noon) and twice at 7:30PM in the evening (total time spent each day: less than 15 minutes). Once again, their "Holy Du'a" is said entirely while sitting down on their butts and cross-legged, not facing the Qiblah, and is not preceded by ablution. There is no touching of the forehead to the ground whatsoever and the legs remain firmly crossed at all times during their prayer.

    The only "Seveners" or "Ismailis" in existence are the Nizaris (who follow the Aga Khan) and the Bohras (of which there are a few groups: Alavis, Dawoodis and Sulaymanis). The Bohras, in general, are much closer to Twelver Shi'ism and orthodox Islam. They believe in the Shar'iah and uphold the five pillars of Islam (including Islamic salaat or namaz), for example. They do not believe in the Aga Khan but believe in others as their Imams earlier in the chain of descendancy from the Prophet (and they believe their Imams are in occultation). As discussed earlier in this thread, if you go back and look at the line of Imamat for Ismailis, Imam Nizar didn't actually have a son and the present Aga Khan is not in fact a descendant of the Prophet at all. Most historians will not dispute this. Given this and how many people in the world claim to be descendants of the Prophet, the onus is on the Aga Khan to prove that he is in fact a descendant of the Prophet and to this point he has not done so (and I expect that he will continue to refuse to give evidence for his claim). In any case, Nizari Ismailism shares little in common with the Islam practiced by the Prophet and the early Muslims, including Imam Ali. That alone is sufficient to demonstrate the lack of merit in Nizari Ismailism.

    That is true. There are reasons behind that. A Nizari Ismaili must give at least 12.5% of his/her annual gross income to the Nizari Ismaili Imam - who then proceeds to give the majority of it away for charitable works (supposedly anyway) but keeps a certain portion (perhaps 10-15%) for himself (no one knows exactly how much and it varies from year to year - the Aga Khan refuses to divulge how much and there is no transparency whatsoever on the matter). In dollar terms, the amount the Aga Khan keeps each year is nevertheless at least hundreds of millions of dollars (given that the amount collected each year from Nizari Ismailis is in the multiple billions of dollars). As you can see, the Aga Khan is heavily incentivized to make and keep his community as financially prosperous as possible. In other words, the more financially successful the Nizari Ismaili community is, the bigger the tithes the Aga Khan gets each year and the more wealthy the Aga Khan becomes. Tithes from his followers are the Nizari Ismaili Imam's primary source of income, after all (although the Aga Khan is becoming less and less dependent on his followers over time given the massive amount of wealth he has been building - now estimated at $1-10 billion USD on which just a 5% rate of return equates to $50-500 million USD). The theory behind how the Nizari Ismaili community is setup is called goal congruency. Goal congruency is a requirement at hedge funds and other performance-driven businesses. Essentially, what this means is that the leader of the community is incentivized to do what is financially best for the community - although not losing the community's attention to critical matters is also important. Well, the Aga Khan is not stupid and has tried to give his community all of the freedom and education they require to excel at making money, and has also created numerous initiatives (such as Ismaili-only economic and business alliances, which already number in the hundreds around the world). There are virtually no business restrictions for NIzari Ismailis and secular education is of paramount importance in the community (although this is slowly backfiring over time as Nizari Ismaili young adults are increasingly marrying non-Ismailis and are increasingly becoming less interested in religion and more open to ideas such as atheism and agnosticism). Getting their kids into the top western universities is a mission from day one of birth at almost every Nizari Ismaili household and Nizari Ismaili parents put a great deal of effort into making sure their kids are leading students in premier (preferably private) schools. Additionally, unlike in Islam, the Nizari Ismailis have utmost freedom (i.e. no Islamic restrictions) when it comes to education and employment/business. Whatever is needed to maximize earnings power is usually done without hesitation and that is because there is essentially no Shari'ah in Nizari Ismailism. A few quick examples: selling alcohol or cigarettes is no problem for Nizari Ismailis as even their Imam does that through his many hotels. Nizari Ismailis also don't give a hoot about 'riba' or usury (which their Imam frequently engages in given the banks that he owns including Habib Bank), so, Nizari Ismailis have no problem investing in financial markets [in stocks, bonds (high yield or whatever) and derivatives (to maximize asset growth)] or, for example, working in the banking industry (including in the top echelons of banks such as Barclays). I could go on and on...the financial wealth that arises from these practices adds up to a very significant amount over time (over what Muslims financially earn) due to the 'magic' of compounding. Given that the Nizari Ismaili "Holy Du'a" - the main prayer of the Nizari Ismailis and their substitution for the Islamic salaat or namaz - only takes 3-5 minutes to recite and can be said from anywhere, anytime and in virtually any position (with no ablution needed or desired), you can see that daily prayers (thrice daily recital of the "Holy Du'a") are no issue for a Nizari Ismaili to say even while a Nizari Ismaili is engaged in studying or working long hours for his/her business or employer. Nowadays, most Nizari Ismailis who work full-time or who go to university only go to their "jamatkhanas" about 2-3 times per week or less (usually Friday through Sunday nights). The most busy night at Nizari Ismaili jamatkhanas is Friday nights which are equivalent in numbers in attendance to our (Muslim) Friday afternoon Jum'ah prayers. So, as you can see, the Nizari Ismaili religion has very few requirements compared to regular Islam from a ritual and Shari'ah standpoint and the Nizari Ismaili religion has also been specifically designed and crafted to allow Nizari Ismailis to excel in education and the workforce. This is thanks to the Aga Khan who, as mentioned earlier, is heavily incentivized to ensure his community becomes and stays as financially prosperous as possible.

    The 48th Nizari Ismaili Imam, Aga Khan III, get a moulding of his face made: A painting he had commissioned of himself (the old lady you see was his last wife, Yvonne - now deceased): Obviously a vain man.
  10. Aga Khan and His Family

    Daily Mail Article: Aga picks a hot date for a night in Paris 22:10pm 10th September 2007 With his £1.5 billion fortune, he has always liked to throw a party. And the bash the Aga Khan held at Aiglemont, his £60 million estate near Paris, at the weekend was a typically lavish affair. Officially it was to celebrate the 70th birthday of the Aga's unmarried younger brother, Prince Amyn, and the 37th birthday of his only daughter, Princess Zahra. It was certainly in stark contrast to the rather stiff commemoration that marked his jubilee of 50 years as leader of the world's 12 million Ismaeli Muslims two months ago. Then the Aga and his four children — three by his first wife, former British model Sally Croker Poole, and a son from his second marriage to attractive German- born Gabriele, from whom he has separated — sat on thrones. "It was all strictly formal," I am told. Last weekend's party was much more relaxed, not least because among the guests was the Aga's latest companion, Beatrice van Pallandt, 39, who has been close to the playboy philanthropist for the past 18 months. Friends are wondering if her presence at such a key family event represents a sophisticated shift in Beatrice's position in the Aga's life. The London-based blonde daughter of Sixties folk singer Baron Frederik van Pallandt — one half of the folk duo Nina and Frederik — bears a passing resemblance to the Aga's estranged second wife. They have been photographed together on his yacht on the Costa Smeralda, the Sardinian resort the Aga — 'K' to his friends — founded 40 years ago. But an old Aiglemont hand tells me that "K" likes to have his female companions close by — though not alongside in any formal role — when he hosts family events. "After all, Beatrice is not much older than Zahra and — like her — has children," says my source. "When he takes Beatrice away on holiday there is now always a great big crowd of kids, which he enjoys." Beatrice, who is the former wife of City recruitment boss Jeffrey von der Schulenburg, is the latest beauty to take the Aga's eye since he split from Gabriele three years ago. He was much taken with Helene Michault, who was a stewardess on one of his three private jets. Two years ago, I can reveal, Miss Michault accompanied the Aga to a glittering reception when he received the Andrew Carnegie medal of philanthropy at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh. Her presence was listed on the official programme as "secretary of His Highness, the Aga Khan".

    An article about the nephew of the current Nizari Ismaili Imam, Andrew Ali Aga Khan Embiricos, who died (of auto-erotic asphyxiation) in 2011 in just his early 20s: http://sceneinny.com...drew-embiricos/ Andrew was a one-time porn star, had multiple addictions to drugs, had HIV and was gay. Even though his mother - Yasmin Aga Khan, sister of the Nizari Ismaili Imam Aga Khan IV - raised him from the time he was a young boy, Andrew was apparently not raised a Muslim. Yasmin had raised him as a single parent (although she has a longtime boyfriend) since his childhood. Yasmin loved him very much and Andrew was very much apart of the Aga Khan family. Definitely a wild kid, though.

  13. It is well known that Nizari Ismailis don't do wu'du and do not use water to cleanse themselves after making use of the toilet. The rest of you what you have to say is irrelevant. Go take an English class before trying to show someone up on here.

    lol You obviously don't know anything about Nizari Ismailism. It has nothing to do with keeping to the religion. Catholics have more rules to follow than even Nizari Ismailis. There is no shari'ah in the world of Nizari Ismailism. The Qur'an is ignored by Nizari Ismailis because they believe only their Aga Khan is fit to interpret it and to tell them what does and does not apply from it. He has only given them the five rules I mention above. Find me a farman of Aga Khan where he talks about fornication being prohibited. That is exactly what a Nizari Ismaili will tell you if you try to tell them what you think they should or shouldn't be doing. I know many Nizari Ismailis have sex before marriage. There is no rule against it for them from their Imam. Nizari Ismailis engage in dating and sexual activity just like the rest of the kuffar out there - absolutely no different. Anything else is cultural. The part about the parents forbidding the girl from wearing shorts is a misinterpretation on your part. Girls are free to wear shorts in Nizari Ismailism - there are no particular dress restrictions. That was just a case where the parents didn't want their girl to dress immodestly (even Christian or Jewish parents sometimes are like that to their children).

    Actually, in Nizari Ismailism, men and women are free to date and have sex with each other before marriage. There are no rules around relations between men and women. As mentioned earlier in this thread, the Nizari Ismaili shari'ah only consists of five rules: 1. No pork 2. No drugs 3. No alcohol 4. No gambling 5. Must pay 12.5% of gross income to Aga Khan That's the entirety of the Nizari Ismaili shari'ah. No one enforces the rules. Followers are simply expected to adhere to them. That said, the Aga Khan family themselves are not Nizari Ismailis as they don't attend religious ceremonies with the rest of the Nizari Ismailis and don't pray like Nizari Ismailis or do any of the religious rites and rituals of Nizari Ismailis. When Rahim Aga Khan gets married, for example, watch it be at a masjid in front of either a Sunni Scholar or a Shia Scholar. That's how all other members of the Aga Khan family have had their marriage rite performed.
