Bilal Muslim Mission Tanga celebrated the birth of the 5th Holy Imam, Muhammad bin Ali (Al-Baqir) (AS) on the eve of 1 Rajab 1434 (11 May 2013) at its main center in Tanga.
A large gathering of both males and females, listened attentively to the reciter, Sheikh Baaqir Lumbongo, a student of Hawzatul Al Qaim, expounding on the life and achievement of this personality.
The Holy Imam is known widely by his title ‘Baqir’ as the one to bring out knowledge to the public like the plough splits the earth and brings out the fertile soil from underneath. He recounted the famous ‘hadith’ of the Holy Prophet (saww) prophesying the birth of his progeny to be known by the title of’Al- Baqir’ as he would split wide open the knowledge of religion
