Ginanguru.com is hosting a special Navroz Edition of the Virtual Qasida & Ginan Mehfil this
Sunday, March 28, 2021. This 7th episode will feature a unique set of recitations by Ismailis
from around the world including USA, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, and beyond!
Dr. Shafique Virani will be sharing the teachings of Pirs and Da’is on the spiritual meaning of Nawruz in Ismailism.
Professor Shafique Virani received his PhD in Islamic Studies from Harvard University. His research focuses on Ismaili and Twelver Shi‘ism, Quranic studies, Islamic history, philosophy, mysticism and pluralism, and Arabic, Persian, and South Asian Muslim literature. Describing him as “a visionary,” the United Nations honored him for dedicating his efforts “to the cause of extending the frontiers of knowledge and the welfare of humankind.”
Since March 2020, Ginanguru has hosted 6 Mehfils that have brought together over 115 Ismaili reciters from over 17 different countries. In case you missed any of the Mehfils, they can be viewed here.
In December 2015, six years ago, Ginanguru was started as an instagram account with the mission of making Ginan translations more accessible to the youth and younger generations of our Jamat. The account posts daily translations of hand-picked Ginan parts for easy-to-consume and bite-sized content.
