Quotes of Aga Khan IV

From easynash

I notice that many visitors to this blogsite, when asking for “Aga Khan quotes” or “Farman’s of Aga Khan” or “Hazar Imam’s farmans” on their respective search engines are directed to only one of the two posts I have on the speeches of Mowlana Hazar Imam. So I am creating a new post entitled ‘Quotes of Aga Khan 4, Consolidated’ to include information from both of the blogposts I currently have(posts no. 9 and 74):

Indeed, one strength of Islam has always lain in its belief that creation is not static but continuous, that through scientific and other endeavours, God has opened and continues to open new windows for us to see the marvels of His creation. [Speech 16 March 1983]

It is no exaggeration to say that the original Christian universities of Latin West, at Paris, Bologna and Oxford, indeed the whole European renaissance, received a vital influx of new knowledge from Islam — an influx from which the later western colleges and universities, including those of North Africa, were to benefit in turn. [Speech 16 March 1983]

It (Surah of Light from the Quran) tells us that the oil of the blessed olive tree lights the lamp of understanding, a light that belongs neither to the East nor West. We are to give this light to all. In that spirit, all that we learn will belong to the world and that too is part of the vision I share with you. (Speech 25 Sept. 1979)

    This post has now found its final resting place in Blogpost Four Hundred, the cardinal post of my Blog on the link between Science and Religion in Islam:


    Blogpost Five Hundred contains a summary of all the posts that went into the making of Blogpost Four Hundred as well as all the offshoots that I created from Blogpost Four Hundred, such as “Golden Jubilee quotes of Aga Khan IV” and “The Quran says….: Quotes of Aga Khan IV and Others”:
