The Youtube link to the Diamond Jubilee Tribute Song to Mawlana Hazar Imam, His Highness the Aga Khan, is one you can play repeatedly and keep on enjoying forever. The expression of love for Mawlana Hazar Imam is visible on each musician’s face, and this is what is most inspiring about this video. What we might say is our “unmeasurable love” for Hazar Imam becomes even more unfathomable to grasp when we read what Hazar Imam said to his jamat (community) during his visit in 1964 to Pakistan that “my love for my Jamat is a lot stronger than yours can ever be for me and I would like you to remember this….When I leave, each and everyone of you will be in my heart, in my prayers, in my thoughts and you must remember that Imam loves you more, much more than you can ever love him and you must be strong in this knowledge.” Unmeasurable unmeasurable love indeed! We are all recipients of his care and barakah, 1000fold, nay a million fold….Happiness forever to all Ismailis.

Gosh! There is so much musical talent in our scattered world community – makes me feel proud to belong to the Ismaili community.Listening to it with the background of our beloved Mowla giving Didar to the Pamir jamat conjures spiritual feelings. Thank you the whole team
We Ismailis are indeed a blessed community with the guidance of Imamat that has been bestowed on us. Our Mawla has helped and worked for the community from the day he bacame our 49th Imam and is still working for the betterment of the community at this advance age. He loves his murids more than we can ever love him. Thank you Mawla Bapa and Diamond Jubilee Mubarak to you and to Ismailis around the whole world.
Just beautiful, meaningful and peaceful tribute to Mawla.
Excellent tribute worthy of the Diamond Jubilee. Thoroughly enjoyed the song.
