The Importance of and the Esoteric Meanings of Jamat Khana

The Ka'bah is located in Makkah and is a central Muslim institution. Since the time of the Holy Prophet (s.a.s.), a local House of God in every Muslim village has been built because it is not possible for all the Muslims of far-flung countries to reach the ka'bah for daily worship. Thus, the Holy Prophet started to build a local House of God called a Masjid in places such as Medina.

The tradition of building local Houses of God exists in all Muslim communities. The Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims have and are building Jamat Khanas in the Western world since the migration of Ismailis from different parts of Africa and Asia and at present, there are high profile Jamat Khanas in London, England; Burnaby, Canada; and Lisbon, Portugal. Other centers are in the planning or construction stages around the world. At the same time, there are local Jamat Khanas in almost every Ismaili Muslim community.

The aim of this posting series is to understanding the deeper and esoteric meaning of Jamat Khana and its link to the Light of the present and living Imam of the time, Noor Mowlana Hazir Imam.
