The medium of dance unites and bonds people across the globe. During the Diamond Jubilee festivities, raas was a prominent dance form enjoyed across countries celebrating 60 years of the Imamat of Mawlana Hazar Imam.

 

The hotel “Auberge du Jeu de Paume” was built by Mawlana Hazar Imam as part of a 20-year effort to revitalise the urban area surrounding the Domaine de Chantilly.

Chantilly, a historical 20 thousand-acre princely estate and a jewel of French culture, is undergoing a massive 20-year revitalisation effort led by Mawlana Hazar Imam. At the end of September, four new projects on the estate were inaugurated before a gathering of distinguished guests.

The Chateau of Chantilly.

Situated in the valley of Nonette some 40 kilometres north of Paris, the Domaine de Chantilly records a history that stretches back over six centuries. In 1884, it was bequeathed – complete with its unparalleled collection of art, manuscripts and furnishings – to the Institut de France by the duc d’Aumale, fifth son of King Louis-Philippe I of France.

Leaders from British Columbia’s Muslim communities, including Ismaili Council President Samira Alibhai, gather at Vancouver City Hall with Mayor Gregor Robertson to commemorate Eid al-Adha.

North American Ismailis celebrated Eid al-Adha by building bridges of understanding among the communities in which they live. In turn, they learnt more about the beliefs and celebrations of their neighbours.

East Meets Western, a new television documentary about the Ismaili community and the Calgary Stampede, describes two seemingly disparate cultures that have built a successful relationship based on shared values. The film showcases the volunteerism, creativity and organisational skills of the Jamat, and highlights the historical role that the Stampede has played in promoting cultural pluralism in Calgary.
