Salaam All, Just a quick question about this school of thought. What are their main/core beliefs and how do their ritual practices differ from the Shia school of thought. Thank you
Not the current Nizari Ismaili Imam, who is Aga Khan IV and the 49th Imam of the Nizari Ismailis. But, his predecessor, Aga Khan III, 48th Imam of the Nizari Ismailis, said the following about the Twelver Shia back in 1899 in a Farman made to the Zanzibar jamat of Nizari Ismailis (the equivalent of a kutbah for us regular Muslims - although for Nizari Ismailis, Farmans are considered to be the tasfir of the Qur'an): "Within ten, twenty or thirty years, the Ithna'ashri religion will be worn out. After 100 years the Ithna'ashri religion will not exist at all. It will not exist in Iran either because that religion's base is not on Aq'l (the power of reasoning). Our religion's base is on Aq'l." (From Translation of Book of Farmans in Gujarati) You can see several Nizari Ismailis discussing this farman here: http://www.ismaili.n...iewtopic&t=7382 It was a real prediction. It has proven wrong.
