Incidentally, there is another Farman of Aga Khan III which speaks of Moguls as being
"beggars" and Arabs "like donkeys' and "what will they teach Ismailis?" The Farman is in
"Khojki" (a script especially developed by Khoja-Ismailis, for private records and secret
writings). This Farman was made on August 20, 1899 in Zanzibar, Africa.

(Here appears in the book, the original text of the Farman in Khojki).


"Pir Sadardin has shown you the straight path, if you leave that, and walk
upon the talks of Moguls and Arabs, then you will fall down. Arabs are
like donkeys. What will they teach you? They themselves do not know
anything, then what will they teach you? Moguls seek alms in every
country. What will they teach you? If you follow their talks, then you too
will become donkeys".

(Bahere Rehmat, pages 30 & 31)

Aga Khan III tells Ismailis in the Farman that if they follow the words of Moguls and
Arabs they will fall down and become like donkeys. The question is, who was Aga Khan
III? Did he not call himself a Hashemite? Who were Hazrat Ali (r.a.) and Nabi
Muhammad (s.a.s.)? Finally, who is Aga Khan IV? Is he Italian, French, British, Irani or
an Arab? He calls himself Karim al-Hussaini. Who were Hashem and Hussain, if not

Muslims - those who submit to Allah - have based their religious beliefs by reference to
the "Words of their Creator" - the Quran. Ismaili Momins - those who submit to their
Imams - have based their religious beliefs by reference to the "words of Poets" - the
Ginans. Which Tariqah is on the right path? Allah says:

"Shall I inform you, (O people!), on whom it is that the evil ones descend? They
descend on every lying, wicked person, (into whose ears) they pour hearsay vanities,
and most of them are liars. And the Poets, -- it is those straying in evil, who follow
them: Seest thou not that they wander distracted in every valley?
And that they say what they practise not?"
Holy Quran 26/221 to 226

Unique Du'a

In the Ismaili Tariqah the first Article of Faith is a Declaration of faith, the second is
Baiyat (oath of allegiance to the Imam) and the third is Dua (prayer). In Islam the first
article is a Declaration of faith and the second is Salat - the canonical daily prayers. In the
Persian and Urdu languages they are called Namaz.

An Ismaili is enjoined to perform only three obligatory prayers (Dua). A Muslim is
enjoined to perform five obligatory prayers (Namaz) every day. When possible, prayers
must be performed in congregation, especially the Friday noon prayers. In the Ismaili
Tariqah there is no noon prayer (Dua) on Friday or any other day.

A Muslim stands before Allah in his Namaz and faces the Qiblah (the Holy House of
Allah in Mecca). An Ismaili sits in his Due and faces the photograph of his Hazar Imam.
In Islam, the person who leads the congregational prayer (Pesh Imam) faces in the same
direction as the rest of the congregation. In the Ismaili Tariqah, the person who leads the
prayer faces the congregation and the Jamat faces the Pesh Imam. They both prostrate
facing each other. In the Jamatkhana, any Ismaili boy or girl of any age, a man or a
woman, can lead the congregational prayer.
