Aga Khan and Sunnah: The Validity and Importance of Hadith and Prophetic Traditions

Lately, I have noticed Ismaili missionaries picking up Quranists’ arguments and defending Aga Khan and in turn, modern-day Ismailism, on the basis of these Quranists’ arguments. For the average Ismaili brother who doesn’t know, Quranists are a small group of people who reject the prophetic traditions (called sunnat al-Nabi or just “sunnah” for simplicity) and … Continue reading

Ismā’īlīsm and Ignorance of Qur’ān

Not understanding and not following the clear and open guidance and teachings of the Holy Qur’ān is nothing but rejecting it.

Hazar Imam’s “Esoteric” Quran or Allah’s “Clear” Quran?

Aga Khan claims to his followers that he brings an esoteric (baatini or hidden) meaning of the Quran which has not been understood by the Muslim ummah. Ismailis are also made to believe that the Qur’an was time-bound and was not meant to be a universal message for all times and that their spiritual leader, … Continue reading
