The President of the World Federation of Khoja Shia Ithnaasheri Muslim Communities, Al-Haj Mulla Asgharali M. M. Jaffer, on his recent private visit to Kenya, extended his visit to Dar-es-Salaam at the invitation of the Chairman of Dar-es-Salam Jamaat, Alhaj Aliraza Rajani. He arrived on Tuesday, 19th October 1993 and upon arrival immediately attended a session with Africa Federation officials where in the situation of the Somalia community in particular was discussed along with the part the World Federation may be called upon to play to assist the community.

During his 3 day visit, Mulla Saheb paid visits to various institutions which operate under the auspices of the Dar-es-Salam Jamaat. Among the institutions visited was the Al-Muntazir Islamic Seminary (Secondary School, Al Muntazir Junior School (primary) and the Ebrahim Haji Charitable Hospital. The Ebrahim Haji Hospital was until recently just dispensaries which has been upgraded into a fully fledged Hospital with modern equipments and are amongst the well though-of projects undertaken by the Dar-es-salaam Jamaat.

Mulla Saheb was quite impressed by the Ocean Road (Msimbazi Creek) land reclamation of the Al Muntazir Islamic Seminary and commended the Dar-es-Salaam Jamaat for a job well done.

A part from his other engagements, Mulla Saheb also took time to recite two majlises one of which was on the wiladat of Janabe Zainab (A.S).

A session of Question and Answers was also held at the Imambara on where Mulla Saheb spoke on the recent visit of a delegation from the World Federation to various poverty stricken districts of India. The World Federation has been trying to uplift living standards and education in the poverty stricken districts of Cutch and Gujarat in India and has initiated and completed a number of housing projects including the construction of students' boarding houses.

In Mulla's words "miracles cannot be achieved but with dedication, foresight and support of Community members' world-wide, many of our Shia brothers and sisters can be rescued from their pathetic living conditions."
