They adhere to a 1,400 year tradition of Shi'a values that are expressed through a commitment to a search for knowledge for the betterment of self and society; embracing pluralism by building bridges of peace and understanding; and generously sharing of one's time, talents, and material resources to create a better future for the community and those among whom they live.

 

About The Ismaili Jamatkhana

The Ismaili Jamatkhana fosters an appreciation of pluralism and seeks to enhance relationships among faith communities, government, and civil society. Events at the Ismaili Jamatkhana aspire to stimulate the intellect, encourage dialogue, and celebrate cultural diversity in the greater Atlanta area.


 
 “The Center will be a place of peace, humility, reflection and prayer. It will be a place of search and enlightenment... It will be a center that will seek to bond men and women of this pluralist country to replace the fragility in their narrow spheres by the strength of civilized society bound together by a common destiny.”
