From Horse Carriages to Nuclear Physics - Seventy Years of Glorious Leadership - 136th Birth Anniversary of Sir Sultan Mohammad ShahBy: Noureen Reimoo for http://blogs.arynews.tv/ – From Satellites to power plants, Science is everywhere and without it, we would not be alive. Advances in technology and science are transforming our world at an incredible pace, and our children’s future will surely be filled with leaps in technology we can only imagine.

There may be individuals who would be wishing to visit the big round moon and stars once in their lives. These expectations seem possible now with the advancements in science and technology. However, in the past people could not even imagine someone talking about visiting the moon and stars. As on February 20th, 1955, His Highness Sir Sultan Muhammad Shah on the occasion of the Platinum Jubilee celebration upon completion of seventy glorious years of his Imamat at Cairo said,

“You referred to my seventy years Imamat which, indeed is unique in the history of the 48 Ismaili Imams by its long duration, but also it began in another world, the world of horse carriages and candle lights, and today we are in the world of nuclear power, physics, jet air travel and serious discussion among the most learned as to how and when we can visit the stars and the moon.”

His Highness Aga Khan III states that his Imamat began in another world and ended in a different world. This is indeed a very interesting point and it brings our attention to his outlook about science and its relation to Islam.
