The greeting of Ismailis the followers of Aga Khan is:
“Ya Ali Madad”, and the reply thereto is:
“Mowla Ali Madad”.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Surah an-Noor (24:61):
“When you enter the houses, you should invoke ‘Salaam’ amongst each other, for this prayer of greetings prescribed by Allah (Salaam) is blessed and pure. Thus does Allah make his Revelations clear to you, so that you may understand.”
Moreover, in Surah al-Anaam (6:54):
“When those come to thee who believe in Our Signs say: Peace Be on You: your Lord had inscribed for Himself (the rule of) Mercy: verily if any of you did evil in ignorance, and thereafter repented and amended (his conduct) Lo! He is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.”
Further, in Surah an-Nisaa (4:86):
“When a greeting of salutation is offered to you, meet it with a greeting still more courteous, or (at least) of equal courtesy. Allah takes careful account of all things.”
Abdullah ibn as-Salam reports:
“When the Prophet (pbuh) came to Medinah, the people gathered around him and I was one of them. The first words I heard him say were: ‘O people, spread the salutations (of salaam), feed the people, keep the ties of kinship, and pray during the night while the others sleep, and you will enter paradise in peace.”‘
Related by al-Hakim, Ibn Majah, and at-Tirmidhi.
The greetings of the believers as taught by Allah and His Last Messenger (saws) is ‘As-Salaam o Alaikum’ and the reply is Wa ‘Aleikum us –Salaam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh’. The misguided Aga Khanis have changed the salutations of Islam, and have substituted it with their own words and beliefs of shirk.
Saying Ya Ali Madad or Ya Ali Adrikni is bida’a (innovation). The Prophet (pbuh) never said these words, the companions never said used these words, the Quran never prescribed them, the tabi’in (followers) never said it and the tabi’in of the tabi’in never said it. If you open Quran and read all the supplications of the Prophets within from Moses to Zakaria to Jesus to Mohammad (pbut) you will never find that Mohammad (pbuh) inserts his father Ibrahim’s (pbuh) name in his Dua’a. So whenever you say Ya Ali Madad, who are you calling? Ali (ra) or Allah? The mushrikeen of Mecca during the time of the Prophet (pbuh) used to believe that Allah has created the heavens and the earth but when it came to worshiping they used to pray to stones and figures other than Him and used them as a link between themselves and Allah (swt).
Thus, Allah sent Muhammad (pbuh) to abolish this shirk and tell them to call Allah directly as the Quran states in multiple instances.
What about the Christians? They believe that Allah created everything but when they worship what do they say? They invoke Jesus for help. Why do the Ismailis then call Christians mushriks when the Ismailis themselves do the same? Why is the Christian called a mushrik when he calls for Jesus instead of Allah while we have a blank check to call upon Ali? What do you tell a Chrristian when you want to convert him to Islam? Do you ask him to replace the name of Jesus with Ali and then the Christian will easily become Muslim?
Did Hussein in Karbala say Ya Ali Madad? Did he Say O Grandfather Adrikni?
When the Ismailis greet each other with “Ya Ali Madad” and “Mawla Ali Madad”, the question is that who is this “Mawla Ali”, if not Ali (ra) and by “nass” (delegation) to Karim Aga Khan the 49th Ali. ?
Do these self-proclaimed “educated” Ismailis of the 21st century actually believe that their present and living Imam (who they call “Hazar Imam”) Karim al-Husseini living in France hears their cries and responds? This is not only against Quran, Hadith and Islamic aqeeda, but also against logic and common sense.
It is surprising that such a developed community of Khojas, highly educated, equipped with modern degrees and latest scientific knowledge and intellect, ahead in all walks of life have such illogical, unpractical and idiotic belief against the very spirit of Islamic monotheism.
