Born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1936, he succeeded his grandfather to become the 49th Ismaili Imam at the age of 20. During the five decades of his Imamat, Mawlana Hazar Imam has devoted himself to the spiritual and worldly progress of Ismailis everywhere.
The celebration of Hazar Imam’s birthday is an occasion for Ismailis to reflect on the unique spiritual bond that links each murid to him. It also affords the Jamat an opportunity to express its love, loyalty and devotion to the Imamat, which binds the Ismaili community together as one.
Salgirah Kushiali Mubarak to Ismaili readers of Pamir times!
