A brief history of Khoja Ismailis (as the South Asian converts are known) is presented, followed by a detailed word-by-word transliteration and translation. This work should be of interest not only to the younger generations of Khoja Ismailis seeking to know more about their heritage but also to any reader looking for poetry of a different culture.
