For the third consecutive year, the Ithnasheri Union (IU) under the auspices of KSIJ Dar es Salaam organized a Charity Walk to celebrate the AFED Solidarity Day 2017.  This event is held every year to celebrate the birth anniversary of our 12th Imam Al Hujjah (ATFS) by raising funds for the underprivileged who are supported by the Africa Federation.
The President of Dar es Salaam Jamaat, Alhaj Azim Dewji, the Resident Aalim, Sayyid Adeel Raza, the Vice Chairman of AFED, Alhaj Aunali Khalfan, the Hon. Secretary of AFED, Alhaj Hussein Karim, the Assistant Hon. Secretary of AFED Alihassan Kassam, Assistant Hon. Treasurer of AFED, Alhaj Aliabbas Nasser and Managing Committee Members of Dar es Salaam Jamaat were among the participants.
The Start Off ceremony commenced with the recitation of some verses of the Holy Quran followed by an inspirational talk by Sayyid Adeel Raza.  Thereafter the dignitaries lighted the Solidarity Torch and performed the ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the start of the walk.  The walk attracted about 300 participants, both young and old.
Unfortunately, during the walk, we lost our staunch supporter of all Africa Federation events, Alhaj Akber Mohamedali Habib.  Marhum always took part in the Solidarity Walk since its inception.  He really looked forward to this walk and left this world walking for a good cause.  We pray to the Almighty to grant him an elevated status in Jannah, Ameen.

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful
Behold! We gave the site to Abraham of the (Sacred) House (saying): "Associate not anything (in worship) with Me; and sanctify My House for those who compass it round or stand up or bow or prostrate themselves (therein in prayer).
and proclaim the Pilgrimage for all mankind so that they come to you on foot and mounted on every kind of camel lean on account of journey from every distant point

That they may witness the benefits (provided) for them and celebrate the name of Allah through the Days appointed over the cattle which He has provided for them (for sacrifice): then eat ye thereof and feed the distressed ones (unfortunate poor) in want.

(Holy Qur’an, Sura Al Hajj, Verse 22-28)
