At the centre of the Emblem is the Imam’s crest. The fifty crescents surrounding the Crest represent the half century of the spiritual leadership of Mawlana Hazar Imam. The outer ring embodies a verse from the Holy Qur’an (Surah 4, Ayat 1) rendered in calligraphy in the Fatimid Kufic script and reads as follows:
O mankind !
Be careful of your duty to your Lord
Who created you from a single soul
and from it created its mate
and from them twain hath spread abroad
a multiple of men and women
