Im sunni by the way, but im just wondering whats the diffrences you guys have from us?
We have a present living Imam to guide us. We are a sect of Shi'a.

Our rituals are not Namaz but we say Du'a to substitute.

Although there are sixteen million of them in global terms that's not that big. Also many of them are apparently in South Asia and Britain. It's possible this site gets comparatively few people from those places.
USA also. Your are correct. There are plenty of Ismaili sites.

Our Imam has good relations with the big leaders of the world. He just met with Rick Perry and Arnold the Governors.

I like him from what I know. He does some good philanthropic things with his Foundation and efforts at reducing global poverty.

Aga Khan Development Network

I wouldn't mind knowing an Ismaili, but I don't think I've met one in real life. Granted I'm not any kind of Muslim so if they were intent on getting me to convert I might not care for that, but they seem to have many good people and interesting aspects.
