These are family disputes

These are family disputes very common in the Western World. I suggest that you resolve your difference by arbitration. That would be the fastest and most economical way of resolving the situation. if it does not work, you can use the law of the land that protects by priority the children.

Afghan Ismaili a cabinate Minister

Ya Ali Madad!

Dear All Ismaili Spiritual Brothers and Sisters ,

This is a good news that Afghan President Mr Ashraf Ghani Candidate an Afghan Ismaili as one of his Cabinet Minister.

New Faces Versus Old Structures: Afghanistan’s national unity cabinet (amended)

Labour, Martyrs, Disabled & Social Affairs: Sayed Sadat Naderi (AG)

Sayed Sadat Naderi is the son of the religious leader of one of the main branches of the Afghan Ismaili sect and former militia commander allied with the PDPA (and after 1992 the ‘Northern Alliance’), Sayed Mansur Naderi, also known as Sayed-e Kayyan. (The family’s headquarter is in the Kayyan valley of Baghlan.) Sadat Naderi has a BA in Economics/International Business from the University of London (1999). According to Tolonews, he was on the board of the Afghan central bank. He is also the chairman of Afghan Gold and CEO of SMN Investments, a privately held group of companies active in nearly all of Afghanistan’s main economic sectors – including fuel import and storage, construction, precious metals and gems, security, property dealing, advertising, supermarkets and insurance (also providing coverage for the Aynak Copper Mine). Sadat Naderi was awarded the 2012 Peace through Commerce award by the United States Department of Commerce.

Vedas were never ever source of satpanthi Ginans

Pir didnot pulled stuff from Vedas and reframed into Ginans. The light comes first then comes The knowledge. The knowledge is no sense without the light. Vedas are just few beginning papers of total spiritual knowledge book. If you live with the older versions, and want to advance into new indepth version, your older version in someway(Vedas) helps you grow up in real spiritual world. Vedas were satpanthi Ginans when it was a living knowledge. Explore living and dead knowledge before jumping into a decision. The light creates knowledge at his will and destroys it at his will
Thank you

Yes however the Quran has

Yes however the Quran has also been called the last Veda in the ginans

Jamat Khane closures in Toronto

I heard the council will be closing York Mills and Greenland Khanes at the end of the year as announced.

Reliable sources also tell me that Bayview, and Richmond Hill khanes will close in July. The jamat will be told to stay home or go to other jamat khanes.

Dundas West the only Jamat Khane in downtown Toronto will also be closed in July 2015.

With the pending closures of Bayview, and Richmomd Hill, and DundasWest does the council have sites for daily khane for these khanes or are they being closed in order to say "we don't have anymore weekend khanes"

Does anyone have any further information as to why ALL weekend khanes are being closed in Toronto without a solution for daily khanes. I know some downtown tell me they will stay home as the next khane is too far. Unionville isnt large enough to handle the impact of the closure of Richmond Hill. As well Willowdale isnt large enough to handle the extra jamat from the closure of Bayview.

The closures of DundasWest, Richmond Hill, Bayview have been officially confirmed. YorkMills, and Greenland are closing at the end of the year. Thorncliffe closed with the opening of the ITC-HQ.

YorkMills, Greenland and

YorkMills, Greenland and Thorncliffe are being replaced by the new Ismaili Center which is close by

Dundas West, Bayview, and Richmond Hill

My sources at the council and Imara (maintenance committee have confirmed the following fact)
The following three other khanes will close in July (DundasWest, Bayview, RichmondHill) as well. The Jamat at these three khanes will be instructed to go to other khanes as follows.

Dundas West will be instructed to attend ITC-HQ JK
Bayview will be instructed to attend Willowdale
Richmond Hill will be instructed to attend Unionville.

With kind regards,


wish progress day by day

we like to see progress day by day

Dignified khanes

Please note as per the transition towards dignified sites for khanes the jamat at those khanes are being redirected to other daily khanes. Members of the jamat are asked to please whole heartedly welcome the jamat from the khanes at are being scheduled to close at the end of the year (2014) or in July 2015.

Please understand the khanes are being closed as the rental for these sites is quite expensive as such that is another reason for the closure. Although it is true that the noted khanes will close at the end of the year, and in July as was noted above please understand the council has weighed the impacts of the closure of these jamat Khanes. Attend khanes a bit earlier to ensure you have enough space on big days such as Friday's, chandraat, mijlsis, khushali, etc.

We are all brothers and sisters please welcome those who will chose to attend other khanes other than that which is noted. The jamat's understanding and cooperation is important at this time.

Closing of School Hall Jamat Khanas

Our leaders only just found out that the rental of these sites is quite expensive. It has been 42 years since our establishment in Canada. If the leaders had started working on daily permanent jamat khanas much, much earlier, we could have bought a handful of permanent sites (when real estate was cheaper) with the same money that we have spent for so many years for these sites. Consider the manpower that has been used to run these school hall jamat khanas. Have these leaders ever considered all this? The other Muslim Communities are laughing at us that after all these years, we are still praying in school halls. As far as the Council having weighed the impact of the closure of these jamat khanas, I tend to disagree. The ICT is in a mess. They have hurt the jamati M/Ks of Greenland & York Mills by basically firing them from their positions. Could they not have waited six more months till they finished their term? If they could still keep Bayview, Dundas West and Richmond Hill going till then, what was the problem with the other two?

Closure of School Khanes

You are forgetting that in order to propose it to the council you need a meeting to prepare the proposal, another to accept the proposal, and yet another to read the proposal.

Don't forget a few years back how they shut Greenland, basically with a weekend notice. Dundas West, one of the first daily JKs in Toronto was converted to a weekend khane a few years back.

Bayview is set to close by March -- July at the latest
Richmond Hill will close by July 2015

I heard that the council is looking to close Bayview by March, July at the latest. Jamat will be told to go to Willowdale.

As for Richmond Hill they will be told to go to Unionville. I have been told that the reason is that the attendance from Monday to Thursday isn't a "full-house" so there isn't a need to have them.

We hear about the news from "leaks" from the council as they don't tell the jamat until the last possible minute. The closer of Bayview & Richmond Hill have been confirmed by several reliable sources.


Ya ali madad. Recently I have been feeling very uneasy and am not able to pray or concentrate on any kind of prayers if I am at jamat khana. My gatpat jo doro has loosened and fallen off multiple times. This scares me. I try having niyaz and recite naad e ali. Pls guide me someone, can there be something wrong happening or is it just my thinking? Thank you

Ismaili Center on Kanis Rd. Little Rock AR USA

A new Ismaili Center recently opened, (about 2 weeks ago),in Little Rock on Kanis Rd. very close to my home. I'm very interested in learning about their traditions, beliefs etc and am happy they have chosen this area of Little Rock to open their place of worship. I wonder if outsiders are allowed to visit during prayers or the worship service? I am a Unitarian Universalist and have very liberal beliefs when it comes to religion. I would enjoy learning more about the Ismaili faith/following.

Urgent need for accomodation in Copenhagen

Dear all,
Ya Ali madad,
I'm Ehsan, a newcomer to Denmark and in desparate need to find a place to stay for at least three weeks in order to validate my CPR number. The authorities gave me a deadline till August 1st to find a residency address or they will cancel my CPR number.
I am 31, male and from Iranian Ismaiili community. I've been a volunteer teacher in Jamatkhana of Tehran for months, teaching Math and Physics to college students. I graduated in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology and have a green card permission to stay in Denmark. I am eager to serve Jamatkhana in any way I am asked for.
I can afford up to 2500 DKK monthly for a place to live. I have tried many sites and groups online but it was of no avail. So I came to Norway to my sister's place in order to avoid high expenses of staying placeless in Copenhagen. However I am ready to be in Copehagen at the shortest notice because I should settle down in Copenhagen before 1st Aug. I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have got something on your mind.
Thanks for your time and concern.

Ginans - Original scripts

My gratitude for English Transliteration of ginans.
Please provide original scripts-Gujarati, etc also.
I have great difficulty with pronunciation in English only version.
Gujarati versions will help with correct pronunciation and impart meanings clearly.


My understanding the Druze Sect is a branch of the Ismaili,The Ismaili sect has translated the Greek phillosophy,and later it was adopted by the druze sect.We have similar culture,and social behaviour.I would like to know is your holy book is secret and discrete like the Druze and the language you practice in your holy book?


Hello Mahmoud, Druze sect was part of Ismaili faith long ago that had parted ways - same as other Shia sects. Our spiritual leaders' (imam) farman (sayings) are usually in English language but are also translated in other languages. Quran is also our holy book. Are you a Druze? If you are let keep in touch. Write to me at naegcanada at gmal do com.

Help Out your Ismaili Brothers & Sisters Around the Globe

Dear Brothers & Sisters, YAM..it has been observed that many of our brothers and sisters are enjoying their life very well living in European Countries i.e. US or Canada and others.. Its the natural habitat that everyone in the World lives for himself or herself..If we talk about Islam and specially Ismaili Islam..it teach us to help each and everyone in every walk of life..Many of our brothers and sisters are living in some societies in the World in very harsh conditions because of economical disabilities or social but they are in very worst lifestyles which has not just been created by themselves but the Countries laws and mismanagement is also the part of that worst living conditions..I would like to invite those Ismaili brothers & sisters who can help their troubled brothers & sisters in such countries Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and all other failed states as they can help them to immigrate to US & Canada the better opportunities established countries..I know many of them have ideal social and economical status but they fed up living in such a society where a single person can not express truth and even far away to struggle for his/her right..I hope all of you reading this script can understand it very well..
