One thought

  1. Such a wonderful heritage. I am sure, children of 40th century if they were to exist would recall the great work under Imam for securing the world out in the post-carbon age with renewable energy security. I am blessed to have the recognition of Imam from Qur’aan. I have proposed a discipline called Ecostrategics for combining the learning from sustainability analysis in order to shape behaviour, consumption patterns. Shia Ismaili Imamis are most regular in giving to Imam obeying while establishing salaat in the luminous hours. Most ecologically intelligent community in the comity of nations with people across the faiths.
