In Memoriam: Prince Aly Salomone Aga Khan & Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan

Today, we honor the lives of Prince Aly Khan (father of Mawlana Hazar Imam, Prince Amyn and Princess Yasmin) and Prince Sadruddin for their many contributions to the jamat and for world peace. For it is on this day that we lost both of them but each of their legacies and life’s works continue to inspire many.
