Introduced by ABDULMALIK MERCHANT

This collection of 4 rare pictures from Dar es Salaam was shared with me by (Alwaez) Ali Rajabali during my visit to Vancouver. They should be of immense interest to students who are in the photos, especially the first group photo featured at the top of this page in which they are pictured with their class teachers and members of the Aga Khan Education Board.

I believe there are countless of rare photos in family albums that have been stowed away for decades. Please take the time to search your archives and share historical photos and documents with Jamati members around the world through this blog, Barakah, or its sister blogs Simerg and Simergphotos. We will be honoured to receive and publish your photos.

Assign your children or grandchildren the noble task of seeking out important historical pictures from your archives and, if need be, reward them for their efforts – it is a tedious task. If this is not done, an important historical moment that may appear insignificant to the owner of the picture may be lost forever! Let’s keep our history alive for generations to come by seeking out photos of our beloved Imams from our archives and getting them digitized.
