Mahe Muharram, the first month of Islamic calendar whereby we the follower of Ahlul Bayt (a.s) start with grief and commemorate the tragedy of Kerbala and mourn for the grandson of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W) Aba Abdillahil Hussein (a.s) and his companion who sacrificed their life to save Islam, the Islam which Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W) left for his Ummah.

BMMT has propagated the message of Martyrs of Kerbala by commemorating in its various centers in different ways so that the message of the sacrifice in saving Islam reaches to suburbs of Tanzania.
