With the sighting of moon of Muharram, the final month of Islamic calendar Zil Hajj come to an end. The new Islamic year begins with the holy month of Muharram which brings with it the memory of the sacrifice of Imam Hussain (A.S.).

The Muslims followers of Ahlulbayt (A.S.) across the globe commemorate the event of Kerbala which took place on the 10th Muharram 61 A.H. (680 A.D.)  The greatest tragedy in the Islamic history on the day Imam Hussain (A.S.), the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (SAWW), his family members and companions were massacred by the ruthless forces of Yazid son of Muawiya bin Abi Sufiyan, a tyrant and corrupt self-proclaimed Caliph of the Muslim Ummah, who violated the Islamic Shariah and humanitarian values and human rights.

Five counties in the Coast region of Kenya are staring at starvation as the country faces another cycle of famine-related deaths.
 
Our Centres located in Kilifi, Kwale, Samburu counties have received minimal or no rains at all in the past four months.
 
The situation is threatening 1.3 million lives in Kenya, according to the National Drought Management Authority (NDMA). Kilifi has been identified as having the severest vegetation deficit. Kinango in Kwale and Lamu West sub-counties are also in the severe vegetation deficit.
 
“One county (Kilifi) is in the alarm drought phase, while all others are in alert or normal, with a generally worsening trend,” the authority says in its October national drought early warning bulletin. Parts of Garissa, Lamu, Makueni, Kajiado, Narok, Marsabit, Isiolo and Samburu counties have also been hit by significant shortages of pasture and water, leading to deaths of livestock in some areas.

Labbaik Ya Hussain!

  “Everyday is Ashura and every land is Karbala”

  Muharram is the first month of the Islamic calendar. Contrary to global trends where New Year is marked with merriment and celebrations, Muslims commemorate the tragedy that befell the household of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and his progeny.
 
The grandson of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.w); Imam Husayn son of Ali bin Abi Talib (a.s) and Fatimah (a.s) bint Muhammad (s.a.w.w) was martyred on 10th Muharram 61 A.H in the plains of Karbala by the army of Yezid bin Muawiya.
 
This tragedy of Karbala, as is famously known, presents the everlasting struggle between right and wrong – justice and injustice.
 
This struggle is inevitable in every human being. There exists an inner voice in us that tells us to do good and act justly on one side. And on the other hand, another tempting voice that commands us to do the opposite.  It takes an independent minded person like Hur ibn Ziyad Riahi (r.a.) who, all along was serving under Yezid’s army to change  his mind and join Imam Husein’s(a.s.) camp.

TEN DAYS MAJALIS AT BILAL HALL MOMBASA

The Mission organized for special program in the evenings during the first 10 days of Muharram. The program started with recitation of the Holy Qur’an followed by matam and poem in Kiswahli. A speech was delivered thereafter. The speeches dwelt on understanding the household of the Prophet (s.a.w.w), the Husayn and the Yezid of today and the importance of emulating Imam’s life. The program ended with recitation of ziyarat and niyaz.
