The Jamat from across the Gulf gathered in Dubai as Mawlana Hazar Imam graced them with a Diamond Jubilee Darbar at Dubai World Central.

UAE National Council President Amiruddin Thanawalla presented a loyalty address to Mawlana Hazar Imam on behalf of the Jamat of the United Arab Emirates jurisdiction. A gift of a manuscript of the kulliyat (collected works) of Muslih al-Din Sa’di was also presented to Hazar Imam. Muslih al-Din Sa’di was a 13th-century Persian poet and prose writer who was widely recognised as one of the greatest masters of the classical literary tradition. The manuscript was specially copied for 46th Imam Mawlana Hasan Ali Shah and was completed in January 1818, exactly 200 years ago.

Mawlana Hazar Imam expressed happiness over his visit to the UAE and conveyed blessings to the jurisdiction as well as global Jamat.
