Senator David Perdue joins community members and leaders for a picture during a luncheon at the Ismaili Jamatkhana.

Ismaili Jamatkhanas foster an appreciation of pluralism and serve as a perfect venue for sharing the Ismaili Muslim identity and community values with the greater community. Events hosted at the Jamatkhana stimulate the intellect, encourage dialogue, and celebrate cultural diversity in the Greater Atlanta Area. They are often also used to host government and community leaders to enhance relations and find pathways for civic engagement.

The Ismaili Council for Afghanistan’s Women’s Committee hosted a multi-city event on 14 March 2019 to coincide with International Women’s Day. The programme brought together over 3,000 women and men to celebrate the role of women in society.

Fatimid women owned land, property, jewelry, and textiles, one of the most prized commodities of the period. Made in Egypt in the 11th century, this lustre-painted dish depicts a richly-attired female figure holding a cup. The vegetal scroll-like patterns of her sleeves are mirrored in the dish’s overall decoration.

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, 8 March 2019, we celebrate the achievements of notable Muslim women - historical and contemporary - who have inspired and continue to inspire people of all faiths, backgrounds, and fields of endeavour.

The 2019 International Women's Day event will honour His Highness the Aga Khan’s guidance in the public sphere as well as to the community, in the area of “Civil Society Leadership.” The aim is to illustrate how Canadian Ismaili women have made waves by initiating and building upon activities that reflect the social conscience of Islam.
