15th Sha'ban 1433 AH
Give a Day's earnings towards the noble cause

The Chairman of The Africa Federation, Alhaj Anwarali Dharamsi is requesting the Worldwide Community to raise awareness of this important Day of the birth of The Awaited Saviour, Imam Muhammad al-Mahdi, al-Hujjah ibn Hassan al-Askari (ATFS).

The honour of this night touches heights and elevation as in the same night at the time of seher (pre-dawn) the Twelfth successor of Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W.), The Awaited Imam, Al Mahdi (ATFS) was born in the year 255 A.H. in Samarah, Iraq.

To revere this very special and blessed night and day of 15th Sha'ban with act of charity and benevolence, the Chairman of The Africa Federation appeals to all community members of the Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri fraternity worldwide to donate their full One Day's earning to the Africa Federation for a noble cause of charity.

"The best man in view of faith is the most openhanded." – Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W.)

This year, the collection made on this occasion will be utilized for supporting the less fortunate and deserving members of our community in the Jamaats of the Africa Federation who are not affording to pay school fees for their children, for their medical care, house rent and household living expenses.

Contributions towards this Fund can be made as follows:

  • Jamaats outside Africa through their respective Jamaats or the Regional Federations.
  • Jamaats of Madagascar through Conseil Regional of Madagascar (CROI).
  • Jamaats within mainland Africa through their respective Jamaats or Directly to the AFED Secretariat by contacting the office or email: secretariat@africafederation.org

This is a unique opportunity to assist the less fortunate and deserving families of our community in acquiring the basic needs. We request all the Jamaats to initiate and promote collections to start from 1st to 25th Sha'ban 1433 AH (21st June to 15th July 2012).

During the 72nd Supreme Council Session in April 2011 in Mombasa, Kenya, majority of the participants suggested to the Secretariat to bring in changes in the way we run the Supreme Council Sessions. At the workshop held following the SC Session in Mombasa (Sunday, 3rd April 2011), the Councillors and youths expressed their concern and urged for some changes in the way we conduct the Council Sessions. The main concern was that we spend more time in discussing issues of the past year, which adds little value to our organizational development, and is not efficient from a time-management perspective. It was stressed that we look ahead by discussing more about the future plans and actions. 

The AFED Office Bearers had a discussion with the Mombasa workshop Facilitators, who were of the opinion that in order to improve the effectiveness of the Sessions of the Supreme Council, we need to move away from the usual methods of reporting to a new approach of forward-looking reporting, to bring about innovative thinking by all participants, and to enable the boards to come up with workable and action oriented plans.

In response to these concerns from the last Session's participants, the Secretariat will be employing the following process of reporting at the 73rd Supreme Council Session:

All reports will be precirculated to the Councillors, to be read before the Session. The presentation of the boards will be forward-looking and will only include highlights from the past year, and not the entire report.

Along with this Circular, we are sending the amended Agenda of the 73rd Supreme Council Session which reflects the above.

"I don't pray for His acceptance of my a'amal as much as I pray for the opportunity to serve. And the day He grants me a new opportunity to serve, I believe the previous ones have been accepted. And I hope till my last breath the opportunities are there and when the Almighty calls me back, I will be able to tell my Lord, Thank You for giving me life,       

Jab tak mai' jiu'n kidhmate khalq karta rahu'n mai'n,

Maut aa'e Yaa Rabb, isi khidmat mei'n maru'n mai'n.
