The festival of Eid al-Adha celebrates the common humanity and ethical heritage shared by the three Abrahamic faiths. A new musical composition performed by artists in the UK harnesses a long-standing relationship between three faith communities and illustrates the strength found in diversity.
This week, alongside our sisters and brothers in Islam, we commemorate Eid al-Adha, the Festival of Sacrifice. The occasion recalls the monotheistic ethos at the heart of the Abrahamic traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

The Ismaili is pleased to present My Imam, My Iman, a specially commissioned song for the occasion of Imamat Day this year.

Mawlana Hazar Imam has often spoken of the importance of caring for the environment. In Ottawa in 2013, he said, “Our faith constantly reminds us to observe and be thankful for the beauty of the world and the universe around us, and our responsibility and obligation, as good stewards of God’s creation, to leave the world in a better condition than we found it.” Young people today are shouldering this responsibility, and raising awareness of environmental issues, including through the medium of film.
This week, The Ismaili presents Mawla Tera Shukriya, a song written to express gratitude for the blessings we enjoy everyday. The lyrics also feature a humble request for mushkil-asan during times of difficulty and hardship.
