The Aga Khan – Around the world there are approximately 15 million Ismaili Muslims, a sub-group of the Shia branch of Islam, which is distinct from the much larger Sunni branch.  After the death of the Prophet Muhammad, Sunnis said the Prophet’s successors should be outstanding religious leaders.  Shias, on the other hand, said their leader should be a direct descendant of the Prophet, and that split has fractured Islam ever since, often violently.  The leaders of the Ismailis is the Aga Khan, an enormously wealthy, little-known philanthropist who has made it his mission to fight poverty and encourage peace around the world with schools and hospitals, the arts and hope.
