His Highness the Aga Khan: “The Ismaili Imamat is a supra-national entity, representing the succession of Imams” — Quote of the day

His Highness the Aga Khan

“The Ismaili Imamat is a supra-national entity, representing the succession of Imams since the time of the Prophet… [The Shia] believed that the Prophet had designated his cousin and son-in-law, Ali, as his successor… In time, the Shia were also sub-divided over this question, so that today the Ismailis are the only Shia community who, throughout history, have been led by a living, hereditary Imam in direct descent from the Prophet.”

His Highness the Aga Khan, Address to Canadian Parliament, Ottawa, February 27, 2014
