This exploratory talk will provide some reflection about the Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri Community diaspora which is part of the global Indian community. It will begin by providing a rationale and conceptual framework used for the study and delve briefly into the circumstances under which the Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheries had to migrate from India and then emigrate to East-Africa, Europe, Canada, United States of America and elsewhere. It will explore the extent of acculturation and transformation that affected the community, its current challenges and whether it is able to overcome them.

CHAPTER 8

THE BELIEF CONCERNING MAN'S ORIGINAL NATURE (fitra) AND HIS TRUE GUIDANCE (hidaya)

 Says the Shaykh Abu Ja'far: Our belief concerning this is that Allah has undoubtedly created man with a disposition towards (accepting) the unity of Allah. And this is (in consonance with) what He, the Mighty and Glorious, says: "The true faith of Allah, for the acceptance of which He has created man" [30, 29]. And concerning His saying, exalted is He: "It is not for Allah to lead a people astray after He hath rightly guided them, until He hath clearly shewn to them what they ought to fear" [9, 116]. Imam Jafar as-Sadiq said: (He does not lead them astray) until He informs them of what pleases and what displeases Him.

And concerning the saying of Him, who is exalted above all: "And (He) inspired it (with the consciousness of) what is wrong for it and what is right for it," [91, 8], he (Imam Ja'far) said: (That means) He made manifest to it (the soul) what (acts) are permissible and what sins are to be avoided. And He, Exalted is He, says: "Verily We have shown him the way, whether he be grateful or disbelieving" [76, 3]; and (concerning this) he (Imam Ja'far) said: (That is) We have made it (the true religion) known to him, whether he accepts it or not.

And concerning the saying of Him, who is mighty and Glorious: "And as for Thamud, We gave them guidance, but they preferred blindness to guidance" [41, 16], Imam Ja'far explained: (And this) despite their knowing (the truth). Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq was asked concerning the saying of Allah, the Mighty and Glorious: "And (did We not) guide him to the parting of the two mountain paths?" [90, 10]. He said: (This refers to) the path of righteousness and the path of wickedness. And he said: That which Allah has kept from the knowledge of human beings is entirely set apart from them. And he also said: Allah has adduced reasons to mankind for what He has given them and what He has made known to them.
