Message from Mawlana Hazar Imam (English)

His Highness the Aga Khan, Mawlana Hazar Imam

2 November 2020

My beloved spiritual children,

My Jamat is aware that the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic continues to pose challenges to the health and quality of life of societies around the world, including the Jamat. This situation remains of deep concern and, as Imam-of-the-Time, I receive regular updates from the Jamati and AKDN institutions and agencies about the impact on my Jamat, and also the mitigation measures being undertaken.

I am pleased that, in many countries, we have been able to re-open our Jamatkhanas in compliance with government and public health guidelines, but my Jamat should remain aware that there is no room for complacency over the risks posed by the highly contagious coronavirus. The need for wearing masks, observing physical distancing and adhering to all the required hygiene protocols remains paramount, and should be treated as part of normal life for some time to come. Many countries are now seeing a resurgence of Covid-19 cases, which demands that my murids should take personal responsibility to protect themselves, their families, and their communities by carefully following the guidelines of the government and public health authorities.

The work on producing vaccines and other forms of therapies is advancing at a rapid pace and, Insha’Allah, over the coming months, we will see positive results which, in due course, will be beneficial to the Jamat and the population at large.

I send my most affectionate paternal, maternal loving blessings for the good health, happiness, safety and well-being of all my murids, with best loving blessings for mushkil-asan.

Yours affectionately,

Aga Khan

Mes Chers Enfants Spirituels,

Mon Jamat a conscience que la pandémie sans précédent de la Covid-19 continue de poser des défis pour la santé et la qualité de vie des sociétés à travers le monde, y compris celles du Jamat. Cette situation reste un sujet de profonde préoccupation et, en tant qu’Imam-du-Temps, je reçois de la part des institutions et agences Jamati et de l’AKDN des informations régulières concernant l’impact sur mon Jamat, ainsi que les mesures d’atténuation mises en œuvre.

Je suis heureux que l’on ait pu, dans de nombreux pays, ré-ouvrir nos Jamatkhanas dans le respect des directives gouvernementales et de santé publique, mais mon Jamat doit rester conscient que les risques posés par ce Corona virus extrêmement contagieux ne laissent aucune place à la complaisance. Le besoin de porter des masques, de respecter la distanciation physique et d’adhérer à tous les protocoles d’hygiène requis reste primordial, et devrait être considéré comme partie intégrante de la vie courante pendant un certain temps encore. De nombreux pays observent une résurgence de cas de Covid-19, ce qui demande de mes murids qu’ils prennent la responsabilité personnelle de se protéger, de protéger leurs familles, et leurs communautés en observant scrupuleusement les directives du Gouvernement et des autorités de santé publique.

Le travail entrepris pour produire des vaccins et d’autres formes de thérapie avance rapidement et, Insha’Allah, nous verrons dans les prochains mois des résultats positifs qui, le moment venu, bénéficieront au Jamat et à la population dans son ensemble.

J’envoie mes plus affectueuses tendres bénédictions paternelles, maternelles pour la bonne santé, le bonheur, la sécurité et le bien-être de tous mes murids, avec mes meilleures tendres bénédictions pour mushkil-asan.

Affectueusement,

Aga Khan

Meus amados filhos espirituais, 

O meu Jamat está consciente de que a pandemia sem precedentes da Covid-19 continua a colocar desafios à saúde e à qualidade de vida das sociedades por todo o mundo, incluindo o Jamat. Esta situação continua a ser motivo de profunda preocupação e, como Imam do Tempo, recebo regularmente atualizações das instituições Jamati e agências da AKDN sobre o impacto no meu Jamat, bem como acerca das medidas de mitigação que estão a ser tomadas.

Estou satisfeito por, em muitos países, termos conseguido reabrir os nossos Jamatkhanas em conformidade com as diretrizes do Governo e das Autoridades de Saúde Pública, mas, o meu Jamat deve permanecer consciente de que não há lugar para complacência sobre os riscos colocados pelo altamente contagioso Coronavírus. A necessidade de usar máscaras, manter o distanciamento físico e seguir todos os protocolos de higiene continua a ser primordial, e deve ser vista como parte da vida normal por algum tempo. Muitos países estão agora a assistir a um ressurgimento de casos de Covid-19, o que exige que os meus murids assumam a responsabilidade pessoal de se protegerem a si próprios, protegerem as suas famílias e as suas comunidades, seguindo cuidadosamente as diretrizes do Governo e das Autoridades de Saúde Pública.

O trabalho de produção de vacinas e de outras formas de tratamento está a avançar a um ritmo acelerado e, Insha’Allah, nos próximos meses, veremos resultados positivos que, a seu tempo, serão benéficos para o Jamat e para a população em geral.

Envio as minhas mais afetuosas bênçãos paternais e maternais para a boa saúde, felicidade, segurança e bem-estar de todos os meus murids, com as melhores bênçãos amorosas para mushkil-asan.

Afetuosamente,

Aga Khan

  1. So moving to see this message from Mawla Bapa – “seeing” is the word for it as Jamatkhanas are only partially open and so we cannot hear the firman read out. Let us pray with Mawla that indeed Inshallah this afat will be lifted soon from over us. We Khoja Ismailis are so fortunate we have ginans in Gujarati we understand. The Tajiks have Qasidas.
