Rays of Light hope to enlighten

An exhibit called Rays of Light stopped in the area this past week. At the Embassy Suites Hotel in Frisco, circular walls surrounding a light-filled center provide a glimpse of the work of Aga Khan, the Shia Ismaili Muslim Imam. The exhibit also celebrates his golden jubilee.

A direct descendant of the Prophet Muhammad, Aga Khan is the 49th spiritual leader of the religion. He established the Aga Khan Foundation, a group of development agencies, to implement projects. Photos of his wide-ranging accomplishments fill four themed areas or rays – engaging in dialogue, inspiring hope, fostering harmony and reaffirming identity. The center of the rays reflects his guidance.

The exhibit premiered earlier this year in Paris. It then moved to Lisbon, where it opened an Ismaili Center. In the United States, Rays of Light visited Atlanta and Orlando, Fla., before coming to the Dallas area. The organizers plan to take the exhibit to other U.S. cities, including Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York.

  1. There is no doubt about this Program which shows about everything about our Imam and His Family. I visited Atlanta for this and still remember most of the things. Very good programme for kids too to get the information about the Noorani Family.


  2. I feel in love with the program everything from the preparation to our REC lesson plans; everything was just well played out. I enjoyed volunteering there almost everyday after school. I don’t think I can ever forget all the memories from ROL! It was amazing that it was the last Golden Jubilee initiative.


  3. This was a fabulous exhibiton i really like it. I will never forget that day throughout my whole life it was just amazing the volunters who were engaged did an outstanding job. They conducted their speeches very manerly.This would be one of my memorable day in my whole life.
