Inside Ismailism

advent of the fatimids wordpress cover
Every Ismāʿīlī child is made to believe that Fatimid period was a glorious one when sciences, arts, social justice and tolerance reached their peak and after the decline in Fatimid rule, ʾIslām has been on the decline and never recovered its glorious past. In this article, we discuss publication by the Institute of Ismāʿīlī Studies of the book The Advent of the Fatimids, which is a direct English translation of Ibn al-Haytham’s Kitab al-Munazarat (‘The Book of Discussions’). This book is enough to debunk the lies which are taught to Ismāʿīlī children in their Religious Education Centers (REC) by Ismāʿīlī teachers by producing evidence of how (Sunni) Muslims were tortured and prosecuted in the Fatimid era and how was the freedom to practice their religion was taken away from (Sunni) Muslims by the Fatimid Ismailis.

This article has the following sections:

  1. Background of the Publication
  2. Evidence of Torture and Persecution of Sunni…

God’s Money

Inside Ismailism

God's Money Release Date Poster

In 1991, Sadruddin Kabani was caught red-handed smuggling more than a million dollars in cash along the US-Canadian border. The money was destined for Aga Khan through Tajuddin Kurji of Aga Khan Foundation Canada and was collected from the Ismāʿīlī community in the name of dasond, mehmani, majlis memberships and various other religious contributions.

The matter was escalated by the Canadian border security to the United States police who then went on a trail of more than US$100 million being smuggled for Aga Khan from North America to his Swiss bank accounts in Lloyd’s Bank in Geneva through top-ranked Ismaili community members such as Tajuddin Kurji.

Taj Ismail was used as a courier by Tajuddin Kurji. Between 1980 and 1988, Taj Ismail deposited US $ 65 million for transferring to Switzerland. Nizam Allibhai, the brother-in-law of Kurji performed similar duties in the US as a courier and often…

Pluralism Without Islam: Global Center for Pluralism

Inside Ismailism

Global Center for Pluralism: Not even a single Muslim on the Board? Global Center for Pluralism: Not even a single Muslim on the Board?

What is Pluralism?

Pluralism says that every belief out there in the world is equally legitimate and has truth to it and we should blindly embrace it – no matter if an individual’s belief is in the divinity of a cow, or a monkey or any pagan god. To define pluralism in Rodney King’s simplistic phrase:

Can’t we all just get along?

Global Center for Pluralism: Yet another money-making ‘Charity’

The Global Center for Pluralism is yet another ‘self-sustaining’ (which translates into ‘money-making’) charity established by the Aga Khan with himself as the Chairman, his daughter Zahra Aga Khan, his Ismāʿīli followers Azim Nanji and Khalil Shariff (CEO of Aga Khan Foundation Canada) in the Board of Directors. Dr. Marwan Muasher from Jordan who recently joined the Board of Directors is a Greek Orthodox Christian. There is…

Hazar Imam’s Birthday “Salgirah Mubarak” in Light of The Quran

Inside Ismailism

Ismailis celebrate birthday of Aga Khan as known as Salgirah Mubarak as a Ismaili religious ceremony with intention of getting hasanaat (thawab or reward). Ismailis celebrate Salgirah day by playing dandiya, raas, dancing with blaring music being played in the background, intermingling of sexes etc are unislamic practices whose impermissibility  needs no elaboration.

Ismailis adopt dressing that resemble with the dressing of the actors and actresses of Bollywood. Dresses worn by certain actors in certain films are ordered or custom made on a huge cost which is just a waste of money. Ismaili women and girls spend hours in the beauty parlor to get there hair done and face made up, men try their utmost to look younger and young boys adopt the latest fashion whose ultimate goals are to attract opposite sexes during these festivities, leading to zina or adultery.

Dandiya Raas

Dandiya Raas is a type of a dance…

Inside Ismailism

For the first time in history, Nizari Ismāʿīlīs are actually now “deeply concerned” about being dragged in court if they do not listen to Hazar Imām. In an unprecedented move, Aga Khan IV sued Alnaz Jiwa and Nagib Tajdin in Canadian courts ignoring his own Ismaili International Conciliation and Arbitration Borad (ICAB) and National Conciliation and Arbitration Board (NCAB) which he himself has established for settling disputes inside his own community.

The ‘shocked’ Ismāʿīlīs were Alnaz Jiwa and Nagib Tajdin – both from the Canadian Ismāʿīlī Jamaat. The Law Times News stated that the Aga Khan alleged in the claim that Jiwa and Montreal businessman Nagib Tajdin infringed his copyright and moral rights by compiling a book that collected addresses delivered to Ismaili communities around the world between 1957, when he assumed his title, and 2009.

The book included 589 Farmans – addresses the Aga…
