Britain’s largest collection of Islamic gardens, terraces and courtyards is to be opened today by Prince Charles at a new Muslim education hub in the capital.

The Aga Khan Centre in King’s Cross, designed by Japanese architect Fumihiko Maki, will have six landscaped open spaces inspired by different Muslim cultures from around the world.

There will also be four other havens of calm surrounding the ten-storey building, in what is the heart of one of London’s biggest regeneration districts.

Today’s inauguration will be attended by Prince Shah Karim Al Hussaini, also known as Aga Khan, the spiritual leader of the Shia Ismaili Muslims and London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

    CAN ISLAMIC LAW BE REFORMED / MODERNIZED ? YES AND A MUST! AGA KHAN IS A CHAMPION TO REFORM ISLAMIC TEACHING.$٨
    Why I admite Imam Aga Khan so much and so excited and happy, because he is a more perfect Imam among other Imam who follow the sunnah professionally in context of our time namely the scientific and technology age in 21th Century.

    He is busy leader to improve the better life of people around the world with the provision of services to the community in education, health, social welfare, housing, economic welfare, cultural and women’s activities, youth and sports development around the world. Amazing Imam.

    Conversely other Sects of Islam are busy with political and spiritual things. They ignore of welfare of people. As result of that create poverty and conflict as we see in most Islamic countries.

    What do you think Zia, CS, Rafiq and Riffat? Give your thiught here. Thank you

    A wise man always welcome a new thing ( reform) but a foolish always hate it. Proverb Daud

    • Yes, the Aga Khan is doing good things relating to education, humanitarian aid, restoration of ancient Islamic sites, Islamic Architecture, humanitarian efforts, business and investments. He has created an investment fund which allows him to allocate 350 million $ to the Aga Khan Development Network annually. Of course a great achievement. When it comes to the spiritual side and the explanations of the Quran and Islamic religion and all that comes with it however I feel that our Khalifa is the correct spiritual leader. Yes, why not learn from each other …

  2. HOW TO CHOOSE A TRUE OR BETTER IMAM AMONG HUNDRED THOUSANDS IMAM IN THE WORLD AS YOUR GUIDANCE IN ISLAM FAITH?

    Allah say in Bible: MATTHEW 6:15
    Be on your guard against false prophets(ulama’),they come to you looking like sheep on the out side, but on the inside they are like wild wolves.You know them by they do.

    A TREE AND ITS FRUIT.
    To have a good fruit you must have a healthy tree.
    If you have a bad tree, you will have a bad fruit.
    A tree has known by the kind of fruit it bears.Matthew, 12: 33.

    My conclusion.
    To choose the right and the true Imam for guidance, do not look what his say or preach but see what he has done to community.
    Maulana Hazar Imam is a right and better Imam in our time.
    Beside has a hight quality of spirit also under the leadership and guidance of the Imam, established schools, hospitals, health centres, housing societies and a variety of social and economic development institutions for the common good of all citizens regardless of their race or religion. woow!

    Most other Imam of many sects of Islam are busy with political aind spiritual thing, do not make people life be better. Besides that other Imams like to concentrade on women dress, halal food and power. They are wrong Imam.

    I urge young Muslim around the world to learn Ismaili teaching and see what are differences with your Imam teaching.
    A wise man always learn a new things but a foolish always hate to learn, he always feels smarter than others.

    All love ❤
