A brief report of the Juloos-Mombasa
The Ashura Procession in Mombasa was held on Monday 5th December 2011 starting at 8pm. As is done annually, the procession began from the Husayni Masjid, fondly known as Fauj, trekking its way past the narrow streets of Old Town towards McKinnon market, across a section of Digo Road, before heading towards the Makadara grounds and down Bawazir lane ending at the Hyderi masjid.
Approximately 800 participants (from our community and local shias) made their way in a solemn atmosphere as various recitations and speeches were echoed through the loud speakers for the benefit of propagating the message of Imam Husayn (a) and his faithful companions. CD’s that contained other articles of tabligh were distributed to the on looking crowd.
For the first time, the essence of the procession was caught on video and placed on our website, www.mombasajamaat.org, streaming through the KSIJ Mombasa youtube channel.
