Muharram

Muharram is fast approaching.

Another islamic year is coming to an end, lets take account of our progress thru it and see if we have learnt anything, achieved anything, improved anything within ourselves. Or was it just another year… like so many before.

Lets make it a point to make the most of the majalis that will be happening this year and try and improve ourselves thru them. Starting with understanding the Mission of Imam Hussain (AS) to rejuvenating our own motivation to help in it.

In most of the Imambargahs the Majalis will start from Thursday night.
