Book Launch – The First Aga Khan: Memoirs of the 46th Ismaili Imam
Muhammad Hasan al-Husayni (1804–1881), also known as Hasan Ali Shah, was the 46th Imam of the Nizari Ismailis and the first Ismaili Imam to bear the title of Aga Khan, bestowed on him by the contemporary Qajar monarch of Persia. This book is the first English translation of his memoirs, the Ibrat-afza, ‘A Book of Exhortation, or Example’, and includes a new edition of the Persian text and a detailed introduction to the work and its context.
The First Aga Khan: Memoirs of the 46th Ismaili Imam was published as part of the IIS’s Diamond Jubilee publications in honour of His Highness the Aga Khan IV
