The Ismaili Muslim Community
The Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims are a community of ethnically and culturally diverse peoples living in over 25 countries around the world, united in their allegiance to His Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan as the 49th hereditary Imam or spiritual leader, and direct descendant of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family). The Ismaili community has been part of Calgary for many years and their members occupy a variety of positions across the public, private and voluntary sectors. Striving to live within the ethic of their faith, the community embodies a strong spirit of volunteerism and support for humanitarian causes.
