2007 Golden Jubilee

Inaugural Ceremony

His Highness the Aga Khan completed his 50th year as the Imam of the Ismaili community on 11 July 2007. Fifty years ago, at the age of 20, the Aga Khan succeeded his grandfather, Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah Aga Khan, as the 49th hereditary Imam (spiritual leader) of the Shia Ismaili Muslims.

To mark the beginning of his Golden Jubilee year, leaders of the Ismaili Muslim community from the past 50 years gathered to pay homage to the Imam on behalf of the global community. Later that day, His Highness hosted a luncheon for the leaders of the community and senior AKDN personnel.
