Rahimtoola Kaderbhai married Manbai, the daughter of Mitha Manji who was either the Mukhi or the Kamadia of Wadi Jamatkhana (now known as Aga Hall Jamatkhana) at Mazgaon, Bombay. Manbai was a very religious lady, attending the Jamatkhana every morning for special prayers. She was one of the few ladies who went to Najaf Ashraf with the coffin of Hazrat Imam Aga Ali Shah Aga Khan II, who was buried there.

Manbai died on 26th July 1898 in the Tandel Street house in Bombay.


"Mr. Hooseinally M. Rahimtoola had round about 1940, prepared some Family Notes. He had also kept, prior to his departure for Africa, some rough notes with his younger brother Suleman and, later on, some more notes with his son Jaffar.

This paper is an attempt to put together the available data for future generations of the family. It is hoped that the younger members of the family will periodically up-date this paper."
