The evening was billed as, "A Journey Along the Cradle of Muslim Civilizations: Based on the Eleventh Century Travels of Nasir Khusraw." It was presented by His Highness Prince Aga Khan Shia Imami Ismaili Council for Western United States.

The woman who extended the invitation, Dr. Nur Amersi, the council's communications chair, explained that the Ismaili are a small sect within the Shi'a denomination of Islam.
