Aga Khani Mazhab Kya Hai | Takbeer, 25 February 1988 | Karachi, Pakistan
On February 25, 1988 weekly Takbeer published a groundbreaking special investigative report on Nizari Ismailis (worshipers of Aga Khan). The publication did not only include excerpts from the Nizari Ismaili course material taught in Ismaili Religious Centers, but also included responses from the representatives of Aga Khan Foundation including Ashiq Ali, Ramzan Merchant and others.
Even though the representatives from Aga Khan Foundation assured Takbeer that they are not separate from the rest of the Muslim ummah, they failed to justify the Ismaili religious beliefs which were found in their texts such as Ismaili Shikshanamala, Kalam-e-Imam-e-Mubeen and Ginans (religious hymns) such as Barham Prakash, etc.
Some of the astonishing texts from the Takbeer report are reproduced below along with their translations:
Translation: “In this world, the manifestation of the Lord of the Worlds is present and that is the Emperor of All Souls meaning Hazar Imam” – Ginan Barham Prakash
Ismaili Shikshanamala, Lesson 4, Page 11 states that: “Hazar Imam is Pir Shah. Pir Shah means Prophet (pir) and Shah (Ali). Our first pir is Hazrat Muhammad sallahu alaihi wa sallam. Our first Imam is Hazrat Ali karam ala wajhu, who in line with the Ismaili belief appointed Hazrat Muhammad sallahu alaihi wa sallam as Messenger. Our 50th Pir is Hazrat Mowlana Shah Karim al-Husayni and our 49th Imam is Hazrat Mowlana Shah Karim al-Husayni (Aga Khan).
Aga Khani Shia Imami (Ismailiyah) are Infidels because they reject Quran and the five basic pillars of Islam, i.e., the testimony of faith, salah, fasting, zakat and hajj. Therefore all Muslims should boycott them socially. (Unified Ruling of Ulema of the Islamic World). See complete ruling with signatures and endorsements on Page 171 of Takbeer Magazine Investigative Report.
Appeal against the Prohibition of Adhan and Muslim Prayer in Ismaili Jamatkhanas. Text of the Sindh High Court case proceedings. – Monthly earnings of Ismaili Jamatkhanas is Rs 20,000,000 – Ismailis have not constructed even a single Mosque in Pakistan – Jamatkhanas are not constructed with the personal wealth of Hazar Imam
Aga Khanis accept he Muslim prayer as a valid form of worship, but do not allow it to be offered inside their Jamatkhanas
