HH Aga Khan & 50 Years

PRESS RELEASE

Golden Jubilee Celebrations of Imamat Day of HH Aga Khan.

Dallas, Texas, July 10, 2007. The World Muslim Congress joins in the felicitation of His Highness the Aga Khan on the Golden (50th) anniversary of his ascension to the Imamat (spiritual and temporal leadership) of the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims on July11, 1957. He succeeded his grandfather as the 49th hereditary Imam of the Ismaili Muslims.

Qur’aan says in Al-Hujurat, Surah 49:13: "O mankind! We have created you male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. The noblest of you, in sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Allah Knows and is Aware." HH Aga Khan has assiduously tried to live up to the essence of the above verse.

Islam consistently encourages individual responsibility towards the peace and security of society at large. Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) described a good deed as an act which benefits others, such as planting a tree that serves generations of wayfarers with fruit and the shade.

Aga Khan Development Foundation (AKDN) is an embodiment of encouragement to all of us to get involved in endeavors to help our fellow beings to attain their full potential. AKDN is one of the largest Muslim Foundations engaged in the service of humanity. It has worked rather quietly in the spirit of Qur’aan to serve the humanity at large, with a special emphasis on helping the underdeveloped communities becoming self-reliant.

AKDN has opened schools colleges, universities, institutes of higher learning and specialized research all over the world, particularly in Central Asia, India, Pakistan and Countries in East Africa. It has organized competitions for the excellence in the spirit of human attainment.
One of the great achievements of Aga Khan Foundation is to prove that a determined effort to raise the economic and educational level of a large community is not only desirable but possible. To the best of our knowledge there are no downtrodden and extremely poor in the Ismaili community. Simply because individually and as a community, Ismaili Muslims under the leadership of Aga Khan have taken the burden of being their brothers keepers, in the best possible sense.

We hope that opening of the Pluralism Center in Canada under His Highness' leadership will open the hearts and minds of all in kindred spirit towards their fellow beings. The tradition of inclusiveness is encouraged in Qur’aan, where God is merciful, kind and the Rabbul Aalameen, the sustainer of the Universe.

  1. RESPECTABLE DR. MIKE
    IT IS VERY DIFFUCULT FOR ME TO NARRATE ANY COMMENT, HOWEVER TODAY WHEN I OPENED THE COMPUTER FOR A SHORT WHILE I FEEL PROUD THAT IN OUR WORLD STILL THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE SO HUMBLE AND ABOVE ALL RACE, CAST, RELIGION AND ALL BLABLA.
    I READ FEW PAGES OF UR IDEA, VIEW TOUGHTS AND TRIED MY SELF TO THINK AND RELATED THEM WITH THE VERSES OF QURAN AND SAYNGS/ SPEECHES OF AGA KHAN.
    I AM AN ISMAILI AGA KHANI BUT NOT WITH A LIMTED OR SHORT SIGHTED AND LIMITED TO ANY FAITH.
    THE IDEAS WORDLY, SUPRETUALLY, MATERIALLY AND INTELLECTUALLY U HIGHLITED ARE IMPRESSIVE AND THERE ARE RELEVENCE WITH THE IDEA OF ROMI, SHAMUS TABREZ AND NASIRKESROW.
    MY STUDY IS VERY LIMITED AND ESPRESSION VERY POOR, BUT I AM SEEKING MYSELF WITH OUT ANT POSITIVE RESULT, WHEN THE SPARKS ADOPT THE SHAPE OF FLAME NEED UR PRAY AND THE CREATERS BLESSING.

    BAIG ALI
