Jamati members created metal tiles that came together to create mosaics on the pedestals of special sculptures displayed at the Opening Ceremony.

The Northeast Jamat participates in activities leading up to the Imamat Day celebrations on July 11, 2017 marking the beginning of Mawlana Hazar Imam's Diamond Jubilee year.

The dandia decorating activity brings the Jamat together.

"The Mehndi Night was incredible. There was so much love, happiness, and energy in the room. It reminded me of 1986 when Mawla was coming. My heart was full and I am looking forward to all the celebrations. This will really be the year of love and celebration." -Nasim Budhwany
