  1. Heartfelt sincere and warm thanks to Juby Sprake for sharing these very rare and valuable photos of Mowlana Hazar Imam on Simerg.com. May you continue this humanitarian and benevolent service to our Murids and may Hazar Imam’s showered and choicest blessings be with you always. May Gods blessings be with you too. Warm Regards and Jazak Allah Kahir.

  2. Hi Malik – hope all is well. Thanks for posting these pictures, made available by Juby Sprake. I can vividly remember this visit by Mowlana Hazar Imam, to the Aga Khan Primary School, now after almost 50 years. I was in the Std 5 class and Azim Damji was our teacher. I have the class picture and others on this visit. I have the article that Karim Ahmed wrote for the school magazine on the visit!!.

    • Interesting, I was in class 2 (1966). Brings memories. There should be a platform for all Agakhan Primary Alumni to keep in touch. Peter – @Petermbau
