  1. I added 2 more excerpts and quotes of Aga Khan IV to the list of 63, making it a total of 65 quotes; I suspect that this list will continue to grow over time as I become aware of further quotes.

    The 2 new quotes added are:

    “Parts of the Ummah are concerned about the relationship between Muslims and the contemporary knowledge society, which is now principally rooted in the West. It is my deepest conviction, my deepest conviction, that we must make that knowledge society our own, in keeping with the Alid tradition towards the intellect, but always doing so within the ethics of our faith. Thus, I have sought from my Jamat your Nazrana of time and knowledge.”(Aga Khan IV, Paris, France, July 11th 2007)

    “In the ebb and flow of history, “knowledge is a shield against the blows of time”. It dispels “the torment of ignorance” and nourishes “peace to blossom forth in the soul”.”(Aga Khan IV quoting Nasir Khusraw, Dushanbe, Tajikistan, August 30, 2003)

    This is my 400th post and is also the central post of my blog, now entitled Blogpost Four Hundred. It is continually being updated and the last update was blogpost 327 from February 15th 2008. The quotes and excerpts of Mawlana Hazar Imam, Aga Khan IV, his predecessor Imam Aga Khan III, other Imams, cosmologist-philosopher-theologian-poets in Ismaili history and others, on the subjects of knowledge, intellect, creation, science and religion form the doctrinal underpinning of my blog on the link between science and religion in Islam. In the Shia Ismaili Muslim tradition we always have a living Imam to guide us and so this list of quotes and excerpts will always be updated when relevant information becomes available. It is, as the title aptly says, a never-ending post:
