In the name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful

And reckon not those who are killed in Allah's way as dead; nay, they are alive (and) are provided sustenance from their Lord.(Holy Qur’an Surah, Ale Imran 3:169)

May Allah make our reward and your reward great, for our grief for Hussain, (peace be upon him).

10th of Muharram in 61 Hijra (680 AD) – “Ashura” is the darkest day in the history of Islam. On this day the beloved grandson of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) was mercilessly martyred along with his 72 faithful companions in the plains of Karbala, Iraq by the ruthless forces of the despotic ruler, Yazid son of Mu’awiyah Ibn Abi Sufiyan.

Blood donation is a voluntary procedure. You agree to have blood drawn so that it can be given to someone who needs a blood transfusion. Millions of people need blood transfusions each year. Some may need blood during surgery. Others depend on it after an accident or because they have a disease that requires blood components. Blood donation makes all of this possible.

The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) said: Surely, there exists in the hearts of the

History of Tabora KSI Community

Pirbhai Visram (Kaka)’s Travel Diary:
At the age of 22, I left Lamu (in Kenya) for Tabora (in Tanganyika, presently Tanzania) where I arrived in 1904. I worked for four years as Manager in the firm of Sheth Omar Abdulkarim & Sons. It took me 45 days to travel by foot to Tabora via Bukoba.
I can remember six main families resident in Tabora at that time. Sheth Nasser Virji was running a booming business and their merchandise went to distant places like Ujiji, Rwanda and Bujumbura. Arabs used to be their major customers. At that time it would take about 45 days for merchandise to reach Tabora from Bagamoyo, the main port. The goods were carried by porters who had to pass through dense forests amid danger of attack by wild animals. Sometimes the porters would be looted by raiders. There was no way to get any news about the movement of goods. It is only when the porters would reach Tabora that they would tell us of their escape. Under such difficult circumstances, the company was still able to expand its business and had branches at Mwanza, Bukoba, Biharamulo, Dar es Salaam, Kigali, etc. They were considered King among the businesses in Tanganyika and they had a great influence on the German government of the time.
