KQED World: Sat, Aug 1, 2015 -- 3:00 AM

THE AGA KHAN - Around the world there are approximately 15 million Ismaili Muslims, who belong to the Shia branch of Islam. Their spiritual leader is the Aga Khan, who traces his ancestors directly back to the Prophet Muhammad. A wealthy philanthropist, he has made it his mission, based on his faith, to fight poverty, encourage peace, and promote religious understanding. We spoke with him in Toronto, where the Aga Khan Museum, the first art museum in North America devoted to Islamic art and culture, recently opened to the public. < br>THE SINGING MONKS OF NORCIA - In the Italian town where St. Benedict was born, Benedictine monks led by Father Cassian Folsom, an American, gather nine times daily to worship God with Gregorian chants and prayer. Their singing has been recorded and is now a chart-topping album, allowing others outside the walls of the monastery to experience the music and devotions of monastic life.
