“Through 72 years of Imamat, he guided his spiritual children to happiness and prosperity …
Many, many memories come to our minds as we think of him.
He achieved in his life, for our community that which could only have been accomplished normally in a period of many generations.
The tributes that the world has paid him bear honest testimony to his great life and work”
– His Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan
49th hereditary Imam of the Ismaili Muslims
Takht Nashini, Karachi, Pakistan – January 23, 1958
