(Video) Book Launch Event: Faith and Ethics with M. Ali Lakhani- Ismaili Centre Toronto

The sons of Adam are limbs of each other, 

Having been created of one essence. 

When the calamity of time affects one limb 

The other limbs cannot remain at rest. 

If you have no sympathy for the troubles of others, 

You are unworthy to be called by the name of ‘a Human’. 

Sa’di of Shiraz

Faith and Ethics: The Vision of the Ismaili Imamat

This insightful book examines how the ideas and actions of the current Ismaili Imam, and fourth Aga Khan, Prince Karim al-Hussaini, provide an Islamic response to the challenges that face Muslims in the modern era. https://iis.ac.uk/publication/faith-and-ethics-vision-ismaili-imamat


At a time when criticisms and misrepresentation surrounding Islam abound, Faith and Ethics faith_ethics_jacket_final.jpgexplores the religion’s universal principles and values, which the author believes can make a positive impact both among Muslims and non-Muslims. The book will be of special interest to scholars researching Islam, Muslim faith and ethics and the Ismailis, and to general readers wanting a deeper understanding of Islam.

Book Review by S. Bendeck Sotillos- Temenos Academy Review

Faith and Ethics by M. Ali Lakhani, founder and editor of  Sacred Web, the leading English journal in the field of traditional metaphysics and its application to modernity, was developed from his essay ‘Living the Ethics of One’s Faith: The Aga Khan’s Integral Vision’. This is the first work of its kind to be published by the Institute of Ismaili Studies of London, and focuses on the thought and work of the Aga Khan primarily through his public statements spanning over sixty years. Though the author is himself an Ismaili Muslim, the book is a work of independent scholarship, presenting an objective interpretation of the Aga Khan’s ideas as implemented by his Imamat institutions and community. click here to read more.
