The morning of Thursday, 12th June was echoing with loud voices of Bilal Children singing in the love of the Awaited Imam Al Mahdi.  The procession began from Sambwisi Street with a one minute silence to reflect and pray for the safety of all Muslims throughout the world followed by Ziyarat to salute the Imam of our time.

 Opening of ‘Hussainy Medical House’ in Ahmedabad – India
The Central Health Board (CHB) of the Federation of KSI Jamaats of Africa in collaboration with the Hussainy Healthcare Committee (HHC) in Ahmedabad have recently introduced accommodation facility in Sarkhej area for patients who require accommodation. The HHC being headed by Br. Ali Hasnain Dosani have been working very hard for the last several months to establish the Medical House. Previously, patients were accommodated at the Sardariya Boys Hostel which is presently undergoing major renovations to improve its condition. Similarly, the Kalupoor Musafirkhana is far from the city centre, it is located in a crowded and congested market area restricting cabs/cars to reach to Musafirkhana, thus, for patients it becomes very difficult to go in and out of Musafirkhana.
