Happy Birthday Mowlana Hazar Imam.

"And peace on him on the day he was born, and on the day he dies, and on the day he is raised to life" Holy Quran 19:15
"And I follow the religion of my fathers, Ibrahim (Abraham) and Ishaq (Isaac) and Yaqoub (Jacob); it beseems us not that we should associate aught with Allah; this is by Allah's grace upon us and on mankind, but most people do not give thanks." [12.38]
"He it is Who sent His Apostle with guidance and the religion of truth, that He might cause it to prevail over all religions." [9.33]
"Birthdays of the Ahl-e-Bayt (the Prophet's family) and the Imams and certain important dates of the year were celebrated. Imam took part in the celebrations of the festivals. Local festivals of secular origin, like the "Flooding of the Nile" and "Navroz" (beginning of spring) were also encouraged by the Imam. Imam al-Muiz would hold huge receptions at his palace; processions were taken through the town and the whole town was illuminated."
The above (taken from the History of the Imams page) is a description of the traditional celebration of the birthday of the Imam of the time (Hazar Imam) the progeny of Prophet Muhammad (sas). We are all very happy at the occasion of the birthday of Mowlana Karim Al-Husaini Hazar Imam (as), the 49th descendant, on December the 13th. The world is celebrating the birthday of this Noble Spirit, Ameen.
Mowlana Hazar Imam is making tremendous progress in bringing about peace on earth by dialog and reconciliation rather than propounding a clash of sorts. See for yourself the recent coverage on his activities and we all wish him all the success evermore, Amen. We also thank him for being our spiritual and secular guide and has helped us improve our lot manifold in the last 50 years and before him, his grandfather, His Highness the Aga Khan III. The community is rejoicing everywhere for being fortunate enough to be born in this wonderful sect and to be guided by this Prince of Peace, Alhamdulillah!
