Not all heroes wear capes – A Christian reflects on the Aga Khan

Barakah: Not all heroes wear capes – A Christian reflects on the Aga Khan by Andrew Kosorok

The Prophet Muhammad taught:

 

“The doors of goodness are many: enjoining good, forbidding evil, removing harm from the road, listening to the deaf, leading the blind, guiding one to the object of his need, hurrying with the strength of one’s legs to one in sorrow who is asking for help, and supporting the feeble with the strength of one’s arms.”

 

And the Aga Khan has accepted this hadith as a personal job description.

 

... Many prophets of the Bible recorded their prophetic lineage, just as Matthew and Luke in the New Testament stressed Jesus’s ancestry.

 

In similar vein, Prince Shah Karim Al Hussaini, His Highness the Aga Khan, is the 49th Imam directly descended from the Prophet Muhammad.
