Jamatkhana, evening prayers, are held by the Ismaili Students Association each evening of the week.
This event is reserved for those who practice the Shi'a Ismaili faith. If you would like to know more and the start times, please contact Faith Leas, Joel Gilani or Rubena Ashoori
Jamatkhana, literally "congregational place," is an amalgamation derived from the Arabic word jama‘a (gathering) and the Persian word khana (house, place). It is a term used by some Muslim communities around the world to denote a place of gathering. At SFU this gathering is for prayer amongst the Ismaili community.
The Shia Ismaili Muslims are a community of ethnically and culturally diverse peoples living in over 25 countries around the world, united in their allegiance to His Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan (known to the Ismailis as Mawlana Hazar Imam) as the 49th hereditary Imam (spiritual leader), and direct descendant of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family).
