Development Update – 3225 Conroy Road, Ottawa


Construction will commence shortly on a Place of Worship at the north east corner of Johnston Road and Conroy Road (next to the Petro Canada). The Aga Khan Ismaili community is constructing a 2566 square metre building along with 171 parking spaces, which conforms to current zoning. I hosted public meetings with the applicant on their site plan throughout 2010 and 2011 where the City received feedback from the community. The developer has now obtained site plan approval and is preparing the site for construction. The Ismaili community are looking forward to their new home in Gloucester-Southgate and have already taken leadership roles in community events.

Opening of New Birmingham Jamatkhana

After more than five years since the site was identified, the new Birmingham Jamatkhana, located in Edgbaston, opened its doors for congregational prayers for the first time on 24th September.
The former office building was sympathetically converted and extensively enlarged. The Jamatkhana now spans over four floors, which will be capable of hosting a number of Jamati and Institutional Activities, such as a Youth Club and Seniors Club.

The Jamatkhana also comprises of five Baitul Ilm classrooms and a reading room. In addition to the Social hall, there is also a multi-purpose hall on the top floor that overlooks a roof terrace, coupled with a water fountain.

The inspirational design centres around the Rope of Imamat. It is hoped that the high quality nature of this building will be a reminder in the regions of what the Community stands for.

Ismailis of Dizbad, Iran

Dizbad Watan e Mast – if you look at the Dizbad History in the CA&CC Website, you can learn somethings about the History of Nasir Khosraw School in Dizbad.

In the 1930s, on an instruction from the Imam, the Nizari villages of Khorasan got their first schools. The very first of them appeared in 1932 in Dizbad and was called after Nasir Khusraw, venerated by the Khorasan Ismailites.

Local communities paid for the schools—on an order from Aga Khan III. 80 percent of collected taxes went to school building and education.

Moshi Jamatkhana, Tanzania

https://ismailimail.wordpress.com/2016/04/03/moshi-jamatkhana-tanzania/

Excerpt from “Ismaili settlement in Moshi”

“My father, accompanied by grandparents, came to Africa in 1906,” recalls Jimmy Moolji. “He was only 11 years old.”

The Moolji Nazarali family was among other pioneers.

His father’s elder brother, Alibhai Nazarali came to East Africa a little earlier and settled at a place called Sultan Hamud near Eldoret in Kenya. His mission was to pave way for settling the rest of family members.

Moolji (Jimmy) also recalls as school was not an option, his father started hawking food prepared by his grandmother.

Moshi Jamatkhana

A few years later his father was betrothed to his mother who was born in Dar es Salaam but had become orphans and lived with close relatives in Voi not too far from Moshi.

He eventually moved to Voi and started working in the sisal estate with his in-laws.

The Moolji family made a fortune in business and later decided to return to Moshi with his small family at the time the Ismaili population was on the rapid rise. Jimmy (Moolji) said his father and others built the town’s first Jamat Khana at a cost of 25,000 shillings.

The fund raising campaign was not going well because of hard times.

Moolji died in 1936 and to honour his memory and legacy, a clock tower was built in a traffic circle which is still in existence today.This was when the Moolji family decided to pay for the entire cost for the Jamat Khana and later built a library, a guest house and a nursery school.

Further details regarding the Open House and additional tour dates will be provided soon.

We express immense gratitude to all the sevadaris who have contributed to making this historic moment possible for the Prairies Jamat.

On this auspicious and joyous occasion, we convey heartiest Mubaraki to all members of the Jamat. We offer our humble shukhrana to Mawlana Hazar Imam for this magnificent facility that the Jamat will cherish for years to come.

Located on almost 7 acres of land, the new Westwinds Jamatkhana replaces Calgary’s Airways Jamatkhana, a Jamatkhana that the Calgary Jamat has enjoyed attending since 1980. Westwinds Jamatkhana will help to better meet a growing need within the Calgary Jamat.

In addition to providing space for congregational prayer and tariqah practices, the Jamatkhana will also offer a venue for cultural events, intellectual discussions and social gatherings. It features spaces for Bait-ul-Ilm classes, institutional offices and a multi-purpose social hall.

We express immense gratitude to all the sevadaries who have contributed to making this historic moment possible for the Prairies Jamat.

On this auspicious and joyous occasion, we convey Mubaraki to all members of the Jamat, and offer our humble shukrana to Mawlana Hazar Imam for this magnificent facility that the Jamat will cherish for years to come.

ISMAILI JAMATKHANA IN KHOROG, GORNO BADAKSHAN, TAJIKISTAN

During our visit to Khorog (Gorno Badakshan, Tajikistan) with our close family friends in August 2016,, we were fortunate to visit the site of the Ismaili Jamatkhana and Centre in Khorog which is currently under construction. We were also fortunate to visit many important AKF and AKDN projects in and around Khorog including some historical sites and places.
