Silver Julibee Emblem

The Jubilee Emblem highlights three important elements: 1. Mowlana Hazar Imam's Crest.

2. A circle of crescents-twenty five in number, denoting 25 years of Imamat.

3. A band of calligraphy which has an ayot from the Holy Quram. The calligraphic style is "Thuluth". The Ayat rendered is 3 : 103 and the following is the translation:

And hold fast, All together, by the Rope Which god (stretches out For you), and be not divided Among yourselved; And remember with gratitude God's favour on you: For ye were enemies and He Joined your hearts In love, so that by His Grace, Ye become bretheren: And ye were on the brink Of the Pit of Fire, And He saved you from it. Thus doth God make His Signs clear to you: That ye may be guided.

The overall form of the emblem reflects Islamic concepts. It also denotes that strong association with the community, through the use of the Imamat Crest. It utilizes the universal symbol of the world of Islam the crescent. The twenty five crescents represent the Silver Jubilee of Mowlana Hazar Imam's Imamat.
