Mawlana Sultan Muhammad Shah, Aga Khan III, was born on November 2, 1877 in Karachi, Pakistan. He succeeded to the Imamat at the age of eight, and devoted much of his time and resources to consolidating and organizing the Nizari Ismaili community in India and East Africa. Under his leadership, the first half of the twentieth century was a period of significant development for the Ismaili community. Numerous institutions for social and economic development were established on the Indian sub-continent and in East Africa, where the Nizari Ismailis immigrated in the 19th century.
