Rays of Light Frequently Asked Questions

What is Rays of Light: Glimpses into the Ismaili Imamat?

Rays of Light: Glimpses into the Ismaili Imamat is originally one of six Golden Jubilee International Programmes, and seeks to depict the work of Mawlana Hazar Imam through 60 years of his Imamat. On December 11, 2008, immediately following the final Golden Jubilee Darbar in Paris, Mawlana Hazar Imam had inaugurated this exhibition, accompanied by members of his family.

This multimedia presentation comprises approximately 250 photographs, video clips, and audio segments covering the period from Mawlana Sultan Mahomed Shah to recent times. These include childhood photographs of Hazar Imam and Prince Amyn, video clips of Hazar Imam inaugurating key projects, and media products chronicling historical moments in his Imamat.
