“ I have got a lot of reflections after reading A Portrait in Pluralism. I feel I was greatly educated by my reading. Muslims were an alien world, not just to me, but also to many people whom I shared your story with. It was inwardly comforting to discover that a religion I once felt was extremist, was not necessarily so.
“The humanism displayed by the Ismailis is astounding, and would put most of the pious Christians I know to shame. The way the Ismailis meld theology and sociology is inspiring. Most comforting of all, was how it dawned on me how similar the goals of the Ismailis and my branch of Christianity are…helping fellow man, creating a better world, involvement with community life, etc.”
The above comments made by Dr. David Zaborac of Iowa were communicated to me personally. Dr. Zaborac made these comments after reading my book, A Portrait in Pluralism.
These comments should make every Ismaili proud. I am bringing this to your attention because I believe you must have non-Ismaili friends, colleagues, neighbours or acquaintances, who may benefit by reading A Portrait in Pluralism. The book may change their views completely about Muslims and introduce them to our religion, community and enlighten them on the work that Hazar Imam is doing internationally.
Any day is a great occasion to give this book to non-Ismaili friends and acquaintances and be an ambassador for the community.
