The Time and Knowledge Nazrana (TKN) represents a combination of two cherished Ismaili traditions: (i) submitting to the Imam of the time an unconditional Nazrana (gift) in commemorating epochal events, as a gesture of love and homage, and (ii) offering one’s intellectual capacity to assist the Imamat’s efforts for the progress of the Jamat, and the communities within which the Jamat lives. We invite you to explore the various sections of this website. Here, you will obtain an understanding of the philosophy and significance of TKN and discover how the knowledge and skills offered by TKN volunteers have substantially contributed to the work of the AKDN and Jamati Institutions for the progress and development of the Jamat and the wider societies in which the Jamat lives.
