Simerg published over one hundred fine pieces in 2011. Simerg Blend is a varied selection from these readings for you to enjoy during the holiday period leading into the New Year – 2012!
The coming year…. As Simerg prepares to mark its third anniversary in March, we propose to launch an exciting new educational series under the title The Name Is….The aim will be to provide thematic portraits of great historical figures from Muslim and Ismaili history. The first two segments will be on Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s.) and Hazrat Ali (a.s.).
2012…We wish all our readers and well-wishers around the world a Happy New Year, with the hope that everyone may experience success and barakah (happiness) in all walks of life.
