Didar of al-Karim – The Most Generous One | Diamond Jubilee Imamat Day

Say [to the Muslims O Prophet!]: I do not ask of you any reward [for conveying this Revelation to you] except love for my near relatives – Q. 42: 23

– The Qur’an and its Interpretations Volume 1 – Page 115

Love Allah for His countless bounties upon you, and love me because you love Allah, and love my Ahl al-Bayt because of your love for me – Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s.)

A 1966 portrait of His Highness the Aga Khan. Less than 10 years earlier, he had inherited the mantle of the Ismaili Imamat from his grandfather. Since then, the young Aga Khan had graduated with honours from Harvard University, distinguished himself as a competitive skier and olympian at the 1964 Winter Olympics at Innsbruck, and busied himself meeting with heads of state and preparing the Ismaili community for the massive upheaval that would come with the end of colonial rule across Africa and Asia. With new investments in education, health and industry, he consolidated and built upon the legacy of his grandfather, and a year later would establish the Aga Khan Foundation in Geneva - an institutional cornerstone of what we know today as the Aga Khan Development Network. - Photo credit: AKDN
