Interesting article on the Aga Khan "fusing two worlds" by the Vanity Fair 2013-02-01

His Highness Prince Karim, the fourth Aga Khan, has been the spiritual leader of 15 million Shia Ismaili Muslims, building a hugely effective global development network. In Chantilly, home to France’s most prestigious horse race, James Reginato explores how the press-shy, Harvard-educated prince, at 76, fuses two worlds.

The Philosophical Significance of the Imam in Isma'ilism

While the Sunnis believe in five pillars in Islam, the Isma'ilis raise them to seven. Al-Qadi an-Nu'man devoted the first volume of his famous book Da'a'im al-Islam to the description of these pillars and an elaboration of them. The first of these seven pillars, as al-Qadi an-Nu'man mentions, is Faith (Iman). He also calls it walaya, which means allegiance or devotion. The other six are successively Ritual Purification (tahara), prayer (salat), Alms Tax (zakat), Fasting (sawm), Pilgrimage (hajj), and Holy War (jihad).
