Thought for the day
My dentist is an Ismaili Muslim. Like other Ismailis, he is peace loving and wants to do what he can to improve the quality of life of others. He and his wife are keen supporters of work among poor communities in Central Asia like the Chiwar people featured today in the guide.
When in South Asia I met and worked with Ismailis - gracious people establishing schools, health centres and a variety of community development projects for the common good of all as encouraged by their Imam-spiritual leader, the Aga Khan. He is the 49th Imam and a British national.
The Ismailis, a branch of Shia Islam, are the only Muslims to have as their leader a hereditary descendant of Muhammad; it is the presence of ‘the living Imam’ that makes the community unique.
Ismailis need to encounter Jesus and come to know him, the only living Lord and Saviour. Let’s make that our prayer today for those living here in the UK.
Prayer for the day
Pray that Ismaili Muslims will meet followers of Jesus, hear spiritual truth, have revelation of who Jesus is and come to know him as their living Saviour and Lord.
