The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) said: Surely, there exists in the hearts of the
Mu' mineen, with respect to the martyrdom of Husain (A.S.), a heat that never subsides.  - (Mustadrak al-Wasail, vol. 10, pg. 318)

We are blessed to once again have an opportunity to commemorate the event of the tragedy of Karbala which occurred in 61 A.H.  This commemoration provides us with an opportunity to reflect, contemplate and develop a source of inspiration towards transformation and reformation in our day to day life and actions, taking lessons of the great mission of Imam Hussain (A.S).
 
Alhamdulillah, by the grace of Allah (SWT) the Africa Federation Tabligh Board (AFTAB) together with the Jamaats have successfully completed the posting of Zakirs and Zakiras to various destinations within the Jamaats in Africa for the month of Muharram 1437 A.H.
 
The Africa Federation Tabligh Board (AFTAB) thanks all the A'alims, Zakirs and Zakiras who kindly accepted the postings and travelled to various Jamaats to convey the message of Seyyid-ush Shohadah Abdillahil Hussain (A.S.) and keep alive the spirit of Azadari of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and the martyrs of Kerbala.
 
The Secretariat also wishes to express its gratitude to all Jamaats of the Africa Federation, Tabligh Boards of the Jamaats and individuals who in one way or the other assisted us in facilitating to carry out these arrangements successfully.
 
Enclosed is the detail of the postings of the Zakirs and Zakiras
