Hey guys, I've recently started to become aware of the Aga Khan and his family. I know very little about the family, so I was wondering if anyone else has any info e.g. where the family is based, etc. I heard that the eldest son is probably going to be passed over in the line of succession, and the daughter will take her father's place when he is gone. So, who can fill me in! Little Star, I'm looking at you  Wink

The Agan Khan is head of the Shia Ismaili sect and he is well known for his charitable works.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aga_Khan
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aga_Khan_IV

He's done a great deal, particularly inPakistan where he has a string of hotels (Serena Hotels) and has set up institutions like the Aga Khan University in Karachi which is excellent.
http://www.akdn.org/

He has 4 children, 3 from his first marriage (Princess Zahra, Prince Rahim and Prince Hussein) and 1 from his second marriage (Prince Aly Muhammed).
His daughter is probably the most active of his children and is very involved with his humanitarian work, she's the one you hear most about.

His daughter is the eldest of his 3 children and there have been suggestions that she will be his successor, not his eldest son Prince Rahim.

I'm not sure if that would be possible though.

Thanks Little Star! Do you know if they are based in Pakistan, or do they live abroad? I really like a lot of the work the organisation does.

I don't know if they are based in Pakistan but he has alot going on there.

I know he has homes in France, a place in Paris and a chateau, and London, I'm not certain of anywhere else though.

It is NOT possible for a woman to be an imam! unfortunately, Islam like other great religions, has not given equal rights/recognition to women for her to be acknowledged on her merits...so un fortunately, one of her broters will inherit. Lets hope they have her talents/brains... Cute

Women can lead prayers and have done so,historically. Many of the first imams in Islam were women, Aisha bwing the main example. She reportedly led mixed prayers more than once.

Probably a dumb question, but    is this the Aga Khan that had a daughter (that he ignored) by a famous red-head American actress?

Are you thinking about Aly Khan, who had a daughter with Rita Hayworth back in the 1950's?  The daughter's name is Yasmin Khan and she's very involved in charitable work for Alzheimer's disease, which her mother had.  I believe Aly Khan was the son of the Aga Khan.  Aly died in a car crash in Paris in the late 50's or early 60's.  He was quite a playboy and was said to...well, never mind what was said about him.  Let's just say he was VERY popular with the ladies.

Thankyou Chris, I only missed the "gentlemen" by an entire generation, but I did get the haircolor of the Actress correct.  What ever happened to Yasmin Kahn (after her Mother died), does she have any contact with her fathers side of the family?  I've seen pictures of her and she seems very beautiful (but so was her Mother).  I also read she had a hard time financially, during her Mothers illness.

Princess Yasmin Aga Khan doesn't look at all like her red-haired Mother Rita Hayworth (born Margarita Carmen Cansino in 1918).  I just read today she (Rita Hayworth) married the Aga Khan (from Pakistan) in 1949, and she got Alzheimers at the age of 51.  How sad for everyone.  Rita Hayworrth was half Spanish and half Irish.

After five years of setbacks, work on the 250 megawatt Bujagali hydropower dam in Jinja kicked off last week.

The Aga Khan, the spiritual leader of the Ismaili community, and President Yoweri Museveni last week laid the foundation stone of the biggest private investment in the region and the largest independent power project in sub-Saharan Africa.

The laying of the foundation stone for the Bujagali II hydropower project marked the transition from the protracted project development to the construction phase. A previous plan to build a dam at the site the Bujagali I project stalled in 2003 after the World Bank pulled out a week before the start of construction, citing environmental and procurement concerns.
