  1. I was deeply moved and felt a great sense of pride when viewing these fabulous photographs illustrating the many many outstanding accomplishments of the Aga Khan Development Network over the past 50 years.

    Happy Golden Jubilee!
    Karima

  2. Magnificent is the right word. This collage of pictures strikes a good balance between the remote past, the recent past and contemporary activities. It shows eminently recognisable pictures of the familial line and also a great selection of pictures showing especially three hallmarks of this Imamat so far, the humanistic, educational and architectural dimensions of Islam, among others.

  7. We were all blessed by this happy, auspicious occasion.
    All I can say is we can feel Mowla’s unfathomable love, affection, devotion, care and the knowledge that we are always in HIS heart whether we are infront of Him or far. He has done so much for us and we are all so proud of Him and so grateful and so lucky that He is our Imam and May Allah’s peace and love be upon Him and His Descendants.
    HAPPY KHUSHYALI!

  8. I agree with parisa….
    Im proud to be an ISMAILI…
    and if reborn, i would always want to be an ismaili

  9. The actual Islam I see here being Ismaili, the Islam of peace, the Islam of devotion, Islam of sacrifice, Islam of following the only one Guider who is descendant from Hazrat Ali (A.S).

    I find Jihad here in the form of helping poor, in the form of rendering services whether its educational, economical, or social…..all over the world.

    I am very very thankful (shukar) to Allah to have such an Imam who has devoted whole his life in improving quality of lives of the mankind in developing, under developing and even in developed countries.

    May Maula fills all our lives with spiritual and material happiness, and showers all his blessings. HAPPY GOLDEN JUBILEE and IMAMAT DAY MUBARAK

  37. YA ALI MADAD TO ALL,
    First of all, I would like to say mubaraki to each and every one of my spritual brothers and sisters around the world for all the memorable darbaars which we had. As khalid bhai mentionned above, We are all very lucky that we are born ismaili. We should always say shukrana to our beloved mawla for giving us health, barakaat and these happy moments. My brothers and sisters, As we all know, our imam spent all his life for our progress materialy and spritualy ( for the progress of our Jamat world wide).What can we offer to him to our Mawla to make him more and more happier. Cogratulating each other, wshing each other the golden jubilee year is great but let’s think about, What can we offer to our father,A person who always thinks (24 hours) about his jamat? Is it volunteery service………

  38. What I can say is only that I feel very very proud to be a Ismaili because I am the mureed of such a graceful and Karim Immam who is guiding us not only spritually but also contiuously thinking about the Muslim Ummah as a whole to bring them prosperity, happiness, eternal peace and his Loving blessing for all.

  39. DR. Hussain Khowaja (mehrwani) (Tarr Khowaja)
    YAM
    I proud to be ismailies & i shere the letter of HAZARAT ALI writes in his instruction to MALIK AL ASHTAR
    Infuse your heart with mercy,love & kindness for your subjects be not face of them a verious animal counting them as easy to pray, for they are of two kinds: either they are your brothers in relegion or your equals in creation errar catches them (evil deeds) are comitted by them intentially and by mistake so grant them your pardan and your for giveness to the same extend that you hope GOD will grand you his pardan and his forgiveness for your above them,and he who appointed you is above you and GOD is above him who appointed you GOD has sought from you the fulfilment of their requirements and he is trying you with them
