Barakah Gold 153 x 110Barakah seeks its inspiration from the Arabic root b-r-k, and its most fundamental meaning is ‘Blessing’, conferred by the Divine upon humankind. In Muslim thought and culture, the concept of barakah is invested with a variety of implicit and explicit religio-cultural meanings. One such meaning is that of a Divine Blessing with an intent to increase the flow of goodness and grace to a thing. The logo is a calligraphic representation of the word Barakah, in gold, repeated twice in Arabic.

Barakah is dedicated to His Highness the Aga Khan, and hopes to provide a deeper understanding and appreciation of the remarkable work that His Highness the Aga Khan has accomplished in all spheres of human endeavour.
