The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) said: Surely, there exists in the hearts of the Mu' mineen, with respect to the martyrdom of Husain (A.S.), a heat that never subsides.  - (Mustadrak al-Wasail, vol. 10, pg. 318)

Muharram brings us yet another opportunity to reflect, contemplate and develop a source of inspiration towards transformation in our day to day life, taking lessons of the great mission of Imam Hussain (A.S.), and from his supreme sacrifice in the plains of Karbala, Iraq in 61 A.H.
 
Alhamdulillah, by the grace and blessings of Allah (SWT) the Zakirs and Zakiras postings to various destinations within our Jamaats in Africa for the month of Muharram 1436 A.H. have been successfully completed.
 
The Africa Federation Tabligh Board (AFTAB) thanks all the A'alims, Zakirs and Zakiras who kindly accepted the postings and travelled to various Jamaats to convey the message of Seyyid-ul Shohadah Abdillahi Hussain (A.S.) and keep alive the spirit of Azadari of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and the martyrs of Kerbala.
 
The Secretariat also wishes to express its gratitude to all Jamaats of the Africa Federation, Tabligh Boards of the Jamaats and individuals who in one way or the other assisted us in facilitating to carry out these arrangements successfully.
