WHAT DOES KHOJA MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Khoja

The Khojas are a group of diverse people who converted to Islam in South Asia. The word Khoja derives from Khwaja, a Persian/Turkic honorific title. In India, most Khojas live in the states of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and the city of Hyderabad. Many Khojas have also migrated and settled over the centuries in East Africa, Europe and North America. The Khoja were by then adherents of Nizari Ismailism. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, particularly in the aftermath of the Aga Khan Case a significant minority separated and adopted Twelver Shi'ism or Sunni Islam, while the majority remained Nizari Ismaili.
