Mawlana Hazar Imam shares a light moment with the Jamat

In a moment that was uniquely historic for the entire Jamat, Mawlana Hazar Imam granted a Diamond Jubilee Darbar in Nairobi, Kenya on the very same grounds where the Imam had been installed during his Takht Nashini in 1957 when he acceded to the Imamat. This was also the same site where Mawlana Hazar Imam celebrated both his Silver and Golden Jubilees.

In Islam, din (faith) and duniya (world) are inseparable from one another. Previously, we explored the nature of education in the Islamic tradition, and the link between dini and dunyawi education. This article will look at the human search for meaning and the role of religion in facilitating that search.

 A participant sings at the Washington, DC., Jubilee Arts Festival

Visitors at the Jubilee Arts Festival were engulfed by the flair creativity the young Jamati members displayed on stage. Not only did they move the audience by their sheer talent but they also showcased the diversity of traditions and cultures that represent the Jamat.

The Ismaili Leaders’ International Forum has announced that Mawlana Hazar Imam, at the invitation of the Government, has confirmed that he will visit Kenya in April 2018.

Participants collaborate their musical talents using the tabla and rabob, both instruments of Persian influence

Bright green plastic melted at a scorching 185 degrees Fahrenheit and oozed out of a 3D pen. Sketches mesmerized spectators as they were lifted off of the paper. Onlookers stood next to the artist as he held up blocks of Arabic script and a group-crafted green diamond. On this table, viewers saw vision and technology unite to magically create works of art.
