O mankind! Indeed We created you from a male and a female, and made you nations and tribes that you may get mutually acquainted. Indeed the most honorable of you in the sight of Allah is the most God wary among you. Indeed Allah is all-knowing, all-aware

-- The Holy Qur’an 49:13


KhojaPedia is an online encyclopedia that details the socio-religious matters of the Khoja Shia Ithna Ashari Muslim community. It seeks to document and preserve the history and rich heritage of this community, including the community’s remarkable spiritual migration from one faith to another through maintaining the spirit of unity and organisation.

The principles of this endeavour are :

• Objective and reliable research through credible sources

• To promote an empathy with the faith, sacrifice, journey, dedication, culture, heritage, identity and unity of the community

This project is an important step in imparting the legacy of the community’s ancestors to its present-day youths, as well as promoting awareness of this community to the wider global community. KhojaPedia predominantly focuses on the Khoja Shia Ithna ‘Ashari community, but where relevant, also comments on other strands of the other Khoja communities.

Our vision is that KhojaPedia will become the virtual hub for all members of the Khoja Shia Ithna ‘Ashari community that wish to appreciate the endeavours of their forefathers, whilst acknowledging their current struggles, and aiming to remain united throughout the forthcoming generations.
