Please can someone help me. I am looking for JK in or around Inglewood, Los angeles..Thank you sooo much.


Jamat Khana near Inglewood CA

There is Torrance Jamatkhana which is about 6 to 8 miles from Inglewood CA.

JK around Inglewood, CA

Salim, your closest JK would be Torrance at 3625 Del Amo Boulevard.
Another alternative would be Santa Monica khana at 3360 Ocean Park Boulevard, Santa Monica across from the El Torito Grill.

need prayers

.…I hope that every buddy had a nice time during the Imamat day celebrations of 2009….. like the jamat is usually having every time…..but a small piece of information I want to add with this to entire global jamat that as we all know the law and order situation in Pakistan is getting worse day by the day, creating disruptions among the communities in all this chaos the talibinization which is a part of ideological conflictional genre, is rooting disturbance in the peace of the country . It is creating tensions for all and targeting their rivals, the ismailia jamat has also became their avengens specifically in the northern areas of Pakistan which includes the areas of chitral yaseen and some areas of gilgit.
In a very unfortunate incident, four Chitralis (expectedly belonging to ismaili jamat) were slaughtered by Taliban in Bajaur. They were traveling to Peshawar from Chitral. They got into a wagon in Timergarah for Peshawar. When they reached Mandal Khawar area of Khar tehsil, the militants waylaid the vehicle and asked if there is any Chitrali in the wagon. Later, they checked the ID cards of the passengers and pulled the Chitralis down and killed them. Two of the ill-fated Chitralis were brothers and belonged to Karimabad in Garam Chashma (majority population of garam chashma is comprising of more than thousands of ismailies); one was from Shogram and the fourth was a resident of Kosht. Jamat get strengthen we need your prayers, previously I used to be emotional and ask my self that why Maula is not coming to Pakistan, but I got my answer on the kushali day, 11 july 2009 ………now I am alert and thinking technically in different vertices….Maula knows better……just praying that May Maula bless us all with his Noor and safe us from evils.

we pray karim to give health happyness to all isamaily alam keep

really we hapy you got very good chance we hope all isamaily alam get also we pray karim keep all isamali alam under his blessing and khanawadan all time our progress is khanawadan and regular blessing and gidens we hope will get thatv amin lakhani

Dear Nizar bhai

I m feeling really very bad to know all this...but inshallah eveything will be fine the MHI blessings. I dont understand what this taliban is getting by doing all this...instead it making Islam names more worst....we all uniter and pray for peace and siratal mustakim.....ameen...

JK Database

Why is it there is no comprehensive site with a database of all the Jamtkhana's of the world with names, addresses and info on current Mukhi's etc?

How difficult can this be? A database would encourage us to visit JK while traveling and foster a closeness between Ismailis of different cultural and national backgrounds.

The world is changing rapidly and it is time we moved forward into the information age

A well-researched excellent material for wide publication to raise awareness of our rich heritage of our mystical faith not just mechanical observance of prescribed prayers within mosques or other forms of prayer-houses. Self-search is what Ismaili faith is based on, on the gift of Aq'l from Allah, or intelligence that humans 'insaan' have as opposed to those of the animal kingdom of 'hewan' who are supposed to have a limited form of it; at least in the abstract thinking point of view. They live more by 'nafs' or instincts. Humans have to cultivate the highest form of 'nafs' and overcome that at animal level in a mystical sense. This is what 'fannah fillah' is about. This is based on my personal stimulation I achieved via reading this article. Thanks!


I agree "Aq'l " is what distingushes us from animals and its the very same thing which should prompt us to respect other human beings and their faith, however the form of practice from may appear to the outside less knowledgeable observer.

Ismailies in Pakistan r facing dire straits in terms of religious ideological conflicts………my ismaili brothers and sisters ur prayers helps us more directly and indirectly in our daily endeavors like when we r traveling or some times when we r sick….some times when we have crises and some times when we feel isolated…..
Ur prayers r highly appreciated……last we all ismailie jamat in Pakistan r still having this hope that Maula will come and will bless the jamat with ZAHIRE DEEDAR….Aameen………( but some times when I look at the conditions of the ismailies in iran I forget my sorrows and grieves because that is the only jamat which has is still living a life of DAUR-E-SATTAR precautionary dissimulation because of the religious and dialogistic conflicts MAY MAULA BLESS ALL THE ISMAILIES A SAFE AND HAPPY LIFE AAMEEN )

Imam in Pakistan - when?

during Imam's golden jublee visits to other countries there use to have announcements in jk in such a suspensive way that i used to hold my heart beats to hear that If Imam is coming to Pakistan....after every announcement i couldn't stop my tears n felt like living dead..
its 4:00 am in the morning sitting my hostel room typing this message and having tears in my eyes....for our beloved Imam.....YA MAULA WE ALL R WAITING FOR U.......

Be happy!!!!!!!!!!! and remember That all for the best

hi friend,
Yaa ali madad.

Its nice to hear from fellow ismaili from pak.
Well its very sad that Imam couldnt visit pak during golden jubilee year. I know that all ismailis in pak and all around the world r anxiously waiting for Imams visit to pak. But if you know that more then us, Imam is anxious to meet the jamat all over including pak.Therefore even at the age of 73 he walk across slowly while giving his jaheri deedar as it was seen in hyderabad in 2006. it is said that Imam could have got Car in pandol as huge ismaili jamat were present there in hydreabad. But then he refused this offer made by leaders saying that i want to meet each jamat and no one should miss my glimpse of deedar or vice versa. He know everything your feelings your gratitude etc... Be strong on siratal mustakim, follow your faith on etihc of islam. Keep praying for all ismaili and insah allah in near future we all prayer that imam visit pak in the best interest of all. knowing current scenario he knows what is right and what is wrong. So lets hope for the best.

Don,t worry, In our heart lives our Imam

My dear i am very touched by ur message. In our religoin yes Didar of imam is like a big Haij. But u rember if we remember our Imam we can recall and even we can see in our imagination, our beloved imam. Physical near is not so important because Moula himself says that if if I am not phyically with u I am all the time spritually with u . Even Moula sayes I am even nearer to ur blood vains.....

A friend from

Hunza, Aliabad

thankz for reminding me about Maula's presence

Thankz lot for ur replies and I can imagine the scenario in which u have forwards your views............i being appreciative and very much greatful for ur concern in reminding me about the views that our beloved Maula tells us every He says “ no matter I m not physically present with u…but u r always in my hearts in my thoughts and in my prayers” believe me …when ever I got to hear a farman at the jk ending with these lines of Maula my heart cries and my eyes get wet……….at the moment its 3:48 pm in my hostel room out side it very hot…warm heat but when I read ur comments I felt like I m in Hunzoo some sort of inner undefined vibes came out and gave me hypothermia…this is the feelings that Imam is with me…and my love for Maula…..thankz for ur concern about reminding me that Maula is always with us…..

Books written by our imam

Do we have any data related books written by our Imams? If yes then pls let me know the topics and from where can we get it. Highly obliged.


Books written by Imam

Sir Sultan Mohammad Shah our 48th Imama has written a famous book" India In Transition" . It is a famous book in India. You may have the same from reputed book shops in India. This book was written in the recent past but I am sure in the past many a books might have been written by our Imams, you can have the information from the Institute of Ismaili Studies, London.

Marhoom Aly died unexpectedly


One of our fellow jamati member, 21 yr old Aly, from Ft. Lauderdale Jamatkhana, Florida died while he was in Costa Rica for a community service for the Orphange.

Let us all take a moment of silent to pray for the peace of the soul for the ruhani member. Let us all recite Salwat for the Marhoom.

Allah Humma Sallah Allah Muhammad din Wa Aalay Mohammad.

Sad Demise of Aly Lakdawala

My brother Aly Zain Lakdawala who graduated on May 01, 2009 from Univ of South Florida with double majors in Int' Studies and Philosophy was on a humatarian mission in Costa Rica with 14 other students from USF, teaching English at the Orphanage and at Matapalo Beach for Turtle restoration project, when he was swept away in the currents of Pacific Ocean while taking a dip on hot Saturday afternoon- May 16th with 3 other friends.

Aly Zain Lakdawala has moved so many souls in his short journey to this earth and is remembered by his family and friends forever to come.

You may visit http://www.legacy.com/gb2/default.aspx?bookid=8937954403410 and leave your thoughts and
memories for Aly Zain Lakdawala who is loved and admired by many. He devoted himself to Mowla's farmans
and connected with young and adults in our Jamat.

May Mowla Rest his Soul in Peace.
Allah Humma Sallah Allah Muhammad din Wa Aalay Mohammad

Sad demice of Aly L akdawala

We pray for his soul to rest in eternal peace. AMEN
