What can I say? I was deeply touched by these photos. May Mawlabapa bless us all, ameen.
Very nice, especially the one of father and duaghter. We see our spiritual father in his role as a father. I thought these were going to be pictures of the 48th and the to-be 49th Imam together. Of course many such exist and we hope to see them on this go-to site for memorabilia on everything Aga Khans – and much more.
