Aga Khanis muslims or not?

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Are Ismailis (Aga Khanis) muslim or not. Do they belongs to a sect of Shia Muslims?

(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




Aga Khanis muslims or not?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


The Ismailis are a sect of Islam following the Shia school of thought.


Your Question: Are Ismailis (Aga Khanis) muslim or not?

We obviously are not authorized to say whether one sect is indeed true muslims or not, as that decision will be made in the Court of Allah Subhanah Alone.


If a person believes that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah Subhanah Alone, and believes in Mohamed ar Rasool Allah (saws) as the Last Messenger of Allah, they will be recognized as muslims in this world. They will be assigned all the rights that are due to muslims, like marrying amongst the muslims, be buried in muslim cemeteries, etc.


Only in the Court of Allah on the Day of Judgement, will Allah declare who indeed are the true muslims, for only Allah Subhanah has the knowledge of everything.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
