Muharram, the beginning of the Islamic New Year brings along an atmosphere of mourning and commemoration throughout the Shiite world. Unlike in other community's traditions, Shias commemorate the Islamic New Year in a unique manner, understood and comprehended by those who are aware of the tragedy that had befallen on the grandson and the family of the Holy Prophet of Islam in the plains of Kerbala, Iraq in 61 AH. A famous quote by English Historian, Edward Gibbon:

"In a distant age and climate the tragic scene of the death of Hussain will awaken the sympathy of the coldest reader." (English historian and member of parliament), [The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire]

BMM_Temeke_2The School Year Calendar was planned purposely in that the first 12 days of Muharram are utilized for reflecting and understanding the mission of Imam Husayn (AS), the time was well spent in various activities programmed for each age level.

Black flags were put up all around the campus to mark the commemoration days. There were also the azadari of Seyyedush Shohadah Imam Husayn (AS) with majlises (lectures), hadeeth al Kisaa and Marthiya/Nawha in the local language.

Each day began with assembly where some eulogy was recited for Imam Husayn (AS) along with the daily dua by Imam Sajjad Ali ibn Husayn (AS).



In line with one of the aims of the Womens' Board which is to provide Islamic and professional insight into child development, behavioral needs and inform mothers of the different approaches to child nurturing in the modern context, the Board organized a talk on MIND SHIFT on Friday 7th December 2012 at the Mehfile Abbas, Dar-es-Salaam.

The talk was addressed by the visiting Zakira Kanize Zainab Lakadawala from Mumbai, India and the topic was "How to bridge the Generation Gap". About 400 ladies attended this enlightening talk.

The ladies found the presentation quite interesting and beneficial as it related to the day-to-day practical life and child upbringing in this era.

Zakira Kanize Zainab talk was focused on the following points:

  • Live in the present.
  • Compromise and Sacrifice is what life is all about.
  • Try to be in line with your children.
  • When you speak, make sure your speech holds value for your children.
  • Home environment should always be pleasant and it is in the hands of a woman to ensure that takes place.
  • Women have the most powerful weapon – The Brain.
  • Never ever compare your children.
  • Change is very important therefore we have to change, however, change does not mean compromising the Islamic Values.
  • Do not make mountains out of mole hills.
  • Be mentally happy and you will always be happy. Positive thinking is the key word.

Marhum Haji Mu'allim Kassamali Abdulrasul Chandoo was born on 7th April 1937 in Zanzibar, Tanzania.

Tribute to Maalim Kassamali Chandoo (By: Professor Abdul Sheriff of Zanzibar)

We regret to inform you of the sad demise of Haji Mu'allim Kassamali Chandoo who passed away today, Saturday 5th Jan. 2013 [22nd Safar 1434] in Zanzibar

I am sending this message to all Zanzibaris and others as a personal tribute to the life of this great but unassuming teacher of Zanzibar with my very personal recollection of him.  Marhum Maalim Kassamali Chandoo was my neighbor in Malindi, Zanzibar Town, a year ahead of me at school. He made the first deep impression on me when I visited him in Oregon, USA, in 1962 where he was doing his first degree. He has always been a very religious man, and almost the first thing he did when he went there was to go to see the bank manager to ask if he could keep his scholarship money in the bank without receiving any interest, which is forbidden in Islam. The manager must have been surprised, and may have considered him whimsical, but he respected his customer's religious beliefs.
