Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheris, (KSI) numbering less than 150,000 pale into insignificance in the context of 200 million Shia Ithna-Asheris worldwide. Yet they are perceived to have a presence and influence that far exceeds their size.

With their genesis from a Hindu heritage, to a hotchpotch mystic faith called Satpanth which combined Sufi ideas with traces of Hindu belief and their subsequent conversion to the Nizari Ismaili path and eventually to follow the  Ja’fari school of thought is a fascinating story of a journey of faith.
 
It is time to retell this story of this journey of faith over five centuries.  Many of our elders expressed that the full story, of who the Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheris are, must be told for future generations to glean an understanding and appreciation of their ancestors’ struggles, trials, tribulations as well as successes.
