AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PORTUGUESE REPUBLIC AND THE ISMAILI IMAMAT

WHEREAS the 1976 Constitution of the Portuguese Republic and the Religious Freedom
Act enshrine, and Portugal acknowledges, the social importance of the religious
phenomenon, the commitment to the principle of non discriminatory treatment for the
different churches and religious communities and the need to establish enabling conditions
for all citizens to enjoy the freedom of conscience and the right to freely practise religion
and worship;

WHEREAS the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims constitute a worldwide religious community
whose members are historically united not only by a common allegiance of spiritual loyalty,
devotion and obedience to the Shia Ismaili Imam of the time, hereditarily designated
according to the applicable customary law, but also by a common outlook guided by the
Islamic ethic of respect for the inherent nobility of the human person, trust in the liberty and
capacity of human will for responsible choice as well as by the belief in a shared humanity,
building good relations with other religious and social communities among whom they live;
