In which time zone will The Ismaili TV ring in 2022? All of them, of course! The Ismaili is pleased to announce special programming to celebrate the start of a new year as One Jamat. In a unique celebration lasting 24 hours, we will ring in 2022 in 22 different time zones to mark this occasion with the global Jamat.

31 December - 1 January

To ring in the new year, we will feature a series of musical concerts and Ismaili Sounds that elevate the soul. Even if you already have plans for midnight, tune in any time of the day, and see in the New Year with your brothers and sisters worldwide. Enjoy performances from India, Syria, Afghanistan, USA, Canada and the UK and revisit the Jubilee Games Concert held in Dubai in 2016. Whether you want to hear some classic oldies, Sufi and qawwali performances or want to be dancing in your living rooms, there is something for everybody.

This new year’s eve, let’s celebrate together at home as one global Jamat! The celebrations will be streamed on The Ismaili TV starting at 10:00 am London time on 31 December 2021 until 10:00 am London time on 1 January 2022. Check the Ismaili TV programme guide for more information and timings.
