"The likeness of my Ahlulbayt amongst my Ummah (followers) is similar to Noah's Ark. Those who embarked on it were rescued and those who rejected it perished". The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W.)

Alhaj Anwarali Dharamsi, Chairman of the Federation of KSI Jamaats of Africa message to the community upon the sighting of new moon of Muharram – 1434 A.H.

muh2The message of Imam Hussain (A.S.) is echoing beyond the plains of Kerbala;

Imam's call on the day of Ashura – "Hal Min Nasirin Yansurna Hal Min Mugheesin Yugheesuna" - Is there any one to help me? This was not a call just for the day of Ashura in 61 AH and to the people of that time, but it is a call for all of us today as well as for the future generations to come.

The morning of 25th October 2012(9th DhulHijja 1433 AH) dawned a bright sunny day at the Bilal Campus. The students of Nursery, Primary and Hawza were filled with excitement as they all waited for the demonstration of the Haj rituals to begin, and later for each one to be able to view and circumbulate the Ka'aba model.

The demonstration started with teacher Yassin leading a chorus of 'Labbayk, Allahumma Labbayk', followed by a poem on the Hajj rituals in step by step order.

A small group of students, dressed in white, some in male ihrams and others in salah chadors performed the demonstration, as the poem was recited.

Ref: CHB/News Bulletin/007/2012

A UK advisory health board, The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has issued an advisory to stop chewing tobacco/using smokeless tobacco products like pan to all South Asians.

NICE says too often people using these products are unaware that they contain tobacco and can cause illnesses like cancer. And, unlike cigarettes, many smokeless products carry no warnings on packs.

For most people, tobacco use is automatically associated with smoking such as smoking cigarettes. Smoking, however, is not the only way that tobacco is used. Tobacco is often chewed also known as smokeless tobacco. Smokeless tobacco products include chewing tobacco like betel quid (sopari) and paan, sucked or "moist oral" tobacco as well as inhaled tobacco products like snuff.
