Geneva, Switzerland, 31 August 2013 — Mawlana Hazar Imam’s eldest son, Prince Rahim and Ms Kendra Salwa Spears were married in Geneva, Switzerland, earlier today in a private ceremony attended by members and friends of both families. At Hazar Imam’s request the Chairman and Members of the Ismaili Leaders’ International Forum (LIF) represented the global Jamat at the event held on the shores of Lake Geneva, on the grounds of the Château de Bellerive — the residence of Mawlana Hazar Imam’s uncle, the late Prince Sadruddin and his wife Princess Aliya.

The proceedings commenced with the recitation of a traditional qasida in the Farsi language, in praise of Hazrat Ali. This was followed by the nikah recited by His Eminence Sayyed Muhammad Musawi, a prominent Shia faith leader.

To mark the festive occasion, the LIF presented Prince Rahim and Princess Salwa with an 18th century piece of Islamic art.
