His Highness the Aga Khan, Mawlana Hazar Imam

11th December 2020

My beloved spiritual children,

On the occasion of my birthday, the 13th of December 2020, I send my warmest and most affectionate paternal maternal loving blessings to all my beloved spiritual children throughout the world.

I give my best loving blessings for the souls of all my ruhani spiritual children, and I pray for the eternal peace and rest of their souls.

At this time, my Jamat shares with other societies around the world the pain and stresses of the Covid-19 crisis. As Imam-of-the-Time, my attention is focussed on ensuring that the work of the Jamati and AKDN institutions in extending relief and support to those in my Jamat who are vulnerable is effective.

For centuries, one of the core backbones of our Jamat has been our tradition of voluntary service. The global pandemic has challenged our volunteers in many new ways – whether it be in offering care and comfort to my Jamat and others, disseminating important and timely health information, or producing digital communications content to keep the Jamat informed and motivated. I am very pleased with the excellent work of my volunteers throughout the world to support the Jamat and the communities amongst whom they live, and to all my volunteers I convey my greatest admiration and best affectionate loving blessings.

I wish to reiterate that, at all times in your day-to-day lives, my murids should continue to exercise the utmost care and rigour in observing recommended health and safety measures. The reports regarding the development of effective vaccines are encouraging, and I would like my Jamat to be guided by the advice and directives of their health authorities to benefit from the protection these vaccines will provide.

It is a matter of satisfaction that my Jamat continues to draw inspiration from our historic tradition of facing adversity with unity, resolve and resilience, and I am convinced that my Jamat will emerge from the present crisis with enhanced strength and capacities as we plan for the future. I believe my Jamat will find comfort and support from the practice of their faith, whether in Jamatkhanas where these are accessible, or by way of private, personal prayer.

On the occasion of my birthday, I send my best loving blessings to all the spiritual children who have sent messages of congratulations and good wishes.

I send my most affectionate loving blessings for your good health and happiness, spiritual progress, worldly success, strength of faith and unity, with best loving blessings for mushkil-asan. You are all most particularly in my heart, in my thoughts, and in my prayers.

Yours affectionately,

Aga Khan

Talika Mubarak from Mawlana Hazar Imam (French)

Mes Chers Enfants Spirituels,

A l’occasion de mon anniversaire, le 13 décembre 2020, j’envoie mes plus chaleureuses et mes plus affectueuses tendres bénédictions paternelles maternelles à tous mes enfants spirituels bien-aimés à travers le monde. 

Je donne mes meilleures tendres bénédictions pour les âmes de tous mes enfants spirituels ruhani, et je prie pour la paix et le repos éternels de leurs âmes.

En cette période, mon Jamat partage avec d’autres sociétés à travers le monde la souffrance et les tensions liées à la crise de la Covid-19. En tant qu’Imam-du-Temps, mon attention se concentre sur le fait d’assurer que le travail des institutions Jamati et AKDN pour apporter assistance et soutien à ceux qui sont vulnérables dans mon Jamat est efficace.

Depuis des siècles, l’un des piliers essentiels de notre Jamat a été notre tradition de service volontaire. La pandémie mondiale a mis nos volontaires au défi de bien de nouvelles façons — que ce soit en offrant soins et réconfort à mon Jamat et à d’autres, en disséminant des informations sanitaires importantes et en temps opportun, ou en produisant du contenu digital de communication pour tenir le Jamat informé et motivé. Je suis très heureux de l’excellent travail de mes volontaires à travers le monde pour soutenir le Jamat et les communautés au sein desquelles il vit, et à tous mes volontaires je transmets ma plus grande admiration et mes meilleures tendres bénédictions affectueuses.

Je souhaite rappeler à mes murids qu’à tout moment de votre vie quotidienne, vous devez continuer à faire preuve du plus grand soin et de la plus grande rigueur dans l’application des mesures de santé et de sécurité recommandées. Les annonces concernant le développement de vaccins efficaces sont encourageantes, et j’aimerais que mon Jamat soit guidé par les conseils et les directives de ses autorités sanitaires pour bénéficier de la protection que ces vaccins apporteront.

C’est une source de satisfaction que mon Jamat continue de puiser son inspiration dans notre tradition historique de faire face à l’adversité avec unité, détermination et résilience, et je suis convaincu que mon Jamat sortira de la crise actuelle avec plus de force et de capacités alors que nous planifions l’avenir. Je crois que mon Jamat trouvera réconfort et soutien dans la pratique de sa foi, que ce soit dans les Jamatkhanas là où ils sont accessibles, ou par la prière privée et personnelle.

À l’occasion de mon anniversaire, j’envoie mes meilleures tendres bénédictions à tous les enfants spirituels qui ont envoyé des messages de félicitations et de bons vœux.

J’envoie mes plus affectueuses tendres bénédictions pour votre bonne santé et votre bonheur, le progrès spirituel, la réussite matérielle, la force de la foi et l’unité, avec les meilleures tendres bénédictions pour mushkil-asan. Vous êtes tous tout particulièrement dans mon cœur, dans mes pensées et dans mes prières.

Affectueusement,

Aga Khan

11 de dezembro de 2020

Meus amados filhos espirituais,

Por ocasião do meu aniversário, a 13 de dezembro de 2020, envio as minhas mais calorosas e mais afetuosas bênçãos maternais e paternais a todos os meus amados filhos espirituais em todo o mundo. Dou as minhas melhores bênçãos de amor pelas almas de todos os meus filhos espirituais ruhani, e oro pela paz e descanso eterno das suas almas.

Neste momento, o meu Jamat partilha com outras sociedades em todo o mundo a dor e o stress da crise da Covid-19. Como Imam do Tempo, a minha atenção está centrada em assegurar que o trabalho das Instituições Jamati e da AKDN seja eficaz a proporcionar o alívio e apoio àqueles no meu Jamat que são vulneráveis.

Durante séculos, um dos eixos centrais do nosso Jamat tem sido a nossa tradição de serviço voluntário. A pandemia global tem desafiado os nossos voluntários de muitas novas formas – seja oferecendo cuidados e conforto ao meu Jamat e a outros, divulgando informação importante e oportuna sobre saúde, ou produzindo conteúdos de comunicação digital com o objetivo de manter o Jamat informado e motivado. Estou muito satisfeito com o excelente trabalho dos meus voluntários em todo o mundo por apoiarem o Jamat e as comunidades entre as quais vivem, e a todos os meus voluntários transmito a minha maior admiração e as minhas melhores bênçãos afetuosas.

Desejo reiterar que, em todas as ocasiões da vossa vida quotidiana, os meus murids devem continuar a exercer o máximo cuidado e rigor na prática das medidas de saúde e segurança recomendadas. Os relatórios sobre o desenvolvimento de vacinas eficazes são encorajadores, e gostaria que o meu Jamat seguisse os conselhos e diretrizes das suas autoridades de saúde a fim de beneficiarem da proteção que estas vacinas irão proporcionar.

É motivo de satisfação que o meu Jamat continue a inspirar-se na nossa tradição histórica de enfrentar a adversidade com união, determinação e resiliência, e estou convencido de que o meu Jamat sairá da presente crise com mais força e capacidades enquanto planeamos o futuro. Acredito que o meu Jamat encontrará conforto e apoio na prática da sua fé, quer nos Jamatkhanas onde estes estão acessíveis, quer através da oração privada e pessoal.

Por ocasião do meu aniversário, envio as minhas melhores bênçãos de amor a todos os filhos espirituais que enviaram mensagens de congratulações e votos de felicidade.

Envio as minhas mais afetuosas bênçãos de amor pela vossa boa saúde e felicidade, progresso espiritual, sucesso mundano, força de fé e união, com as minhas melhores bênçãos de amor para mushkil-asan. Estão todos muito particularmente no meu coração, nos meus pensamentos e nas minhas orações.

Afetuosamente,

Aga Khan

  1. Saheb ji salamati to all of us. It is good to see Saheb in our Ginans and it is good we of that generation understand Gujarati and hence the Precious Pearls. The Covid-19 we see, is very much on Mowla’s mind for our safety. May our prayers be answered that the Jamatkhanas open up fully. Hazar Imam will protect us.
