My dear community members,
 
Salaamun Alaikum,

Remembering victims of the terrorists attacks

While we are celebrating the birth of Imam of our time, al Mahdi al Hujjah (ATFS) tonight and the day that follows this beautiful and revered night of 15th Shab’an, I send you this brief message on this auspicious occasion.  
 
I am deeply saddened to see the current terrorist attacks in several parts of Iraq and Syria, the loss of innocent lives and displacements of the peace loving people of these countries. I urge you all to remember these innocent people and victims of terrorists’ attacks in Iraq, Syria, Pakistan and other countries where such acts of violence are taking place.
 
In these important days and nights of the revered month of Sha’ban, please remember these victims and pray for their safety, peace and well being.

APPEAL FOR MAHE RAMADHAN 1435 AH

 

Muslims around the world anticipate the arrival of the holiest month of the year, Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar.  Muslims from all continents unite in a period of fasting and spiritual reflection.
 
Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his progeny) said: One who provides iftaar to a Mu'min in the month of Ramazan, shall be granted the reward of liberating a slave (in the path of Allah) and shall have all his previous sins forgiven. And if he did not possess the means to present anything except milk mixed with water, or a drink of sweet water and a date, Allah would grant him this reward. Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 93, pg. 317
