Nur Un Ala Nur (Light Upon Light) #Salgirah

To celebrate special occasion of His Highness the Aga Khan’s 65th Imamat Day, The.Ismaili, back in July 2022, released a devotional musical expression, Nur Un Ala Nur (Light Upon Light), composed by award winning music composers Salim-Sulaiman.

This special collaboration brought together for the first time, globally renowned, professional Ismaili musicians from around the world. Beautifully written lyrics by Kamal Haji, Dr. Nureen Sumar, and Takkat Band, are taken to new heights by the powerful voices of Salim Merchant, Farhan Shah, Shehzad Roy, Faisal Kapadia, Natasha Baig, Alaa Fandy, Safaa Gabar, Dr. Nureen Sumar, Nobovar Chanorov, Cimone Rajan.

Inspiration for the song came from Quranic verses, literature on the concept of Imamat, as well as the Silver, Golden, and Diamond Jubilee motifs. It focuses on the eternal Nur (Divine Light), which illuminates the entire world – day and night – and lights the path of believers who follow the guidance of the Imam, leading them to spiritual enlightenment.
