I thank you for your warm welcome, and am deeply moved by the honour that this renowned institution of learning has done of conferring upon me the degree of Doctor of Laws, honoris causa.

MAWLANA HAZAR IMAM ON LONDON VISIT: HIGHLIGHTS LINKAGES BETWEEN JAMATS OF THE WEST AND DEVELOPING WORLD-1994-08-14

Mawlana Hazar Imam's memorable visit to London in August this year brought together jamats from around the world in a celebration of the ties that bind the community across frontiers and of our Imam-e-Zaman's affection and concern for the jamat worldwide. It was a happy, instructive inspiring visit that highlighted the resilience, institutional strength and commitment to the developing world of a jam well-established in the West.

President Sachedina, Leaders of the Jamat

Before I say things which are important I would like to remind you of the speech before dinner and ask you to make sure that there are no stray lions under your table. I was as unaware that I would speak after dinner as that ill-fated lion.

SPEECH AT THE OUTREACH DINNER HELD AT THE ISMAILI CENTRE-1994-08-09

Your Worships, Your Excellencies, My Lords, Ladies and Gentleman

It is a particular pleasure for me to be amongst so many friends of the Ismaili community in the United Kingdom.

I cannot help reflecting upon the history which brings us all together in the heart of London, when standing here in The Ismaili Centre, so close to the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Speaking in Syria, the Aga Khan called for new links between technology and Islam.

'Syria has demonstrated the power of Islam as a crucible for the spirit and the intellect, transcending boundaries of geography and culture. The Aga Khan celebrated a quarter century of his Awards for Architecture (AR November) at the Citadel in Aleppo late last year.

Agha Khan / Speech-2001-11-09

The Spiritual Leader of the world's Ismaili Muslims, Prince Kareem Agha Khan highly appreciated what he has seen in Syria of aspects of tolerance, fraternity and the joint living between the different groups.

During a meeting with mass of citizens in Tartous today, he noted that the basis which the Agha Khan foundation for development would depend on during cooperation with the Syrian institutions was put on.

'' Islam imposes on the individual to balance between the spiritual life and the financial life and his efforts have to be based on the values of Islam.'' the Prince added.

Your Excellency President Rahmonov,
Your Worship the Mayor of Dushanbe,
Your Excellencies,
Distinguished Guests,

This ceremony represents a milestone in the history of the Ismaili Muslim Community’s presence in Central Asia, a presence which dates back to the second century of Islam. For me personally, as the 49th hereditary Imam of the Ismailis, this is a day of great happiness. It is also fitting that the foundation ceremony of a landmark cultural and religious centre should coincide with the celebration of the one thousandth anniversary of the birth of Syedna Nasir Khusraw.

It gives me great pleasure and immense satisfaction to associate myself on the auspicious occasion of laying the foundation stone ceremony of the Aga Khan Academy at Hyderabad. His Highness Sri Aga Khan requires no introduction to this august gathering here. Yet to refresh our memories, Sri Aga Khan has become Imam at the age of 20, one of the youngest hereditary spiritual leaders in the world.
