(9)

One of the first tasks that our holy prophet undertook upon arriving in Medina was to construct a mosque, masjid Quba. It is following the Sunnah of the prophet that Muslims build mosque(s) in the area where they live. Mankind owes to the child the best it has to give. Our children are a vital part of our community and they help to build for a great future of the community. We cannot think of a better gift to give our children and grandchildren than establishing a mosque and a school system where they can learn and upkeep the values of Islam and the Ahlul bait (as). Imam Mahdi(as) Education Center was established in the Holy month of Ramadhan, 1424 (AH) - October 2004. IMEC is a member of North American Shia Ithna-asheri Muslim Communities Organization (NASIMCO) and operates under the guidance of our Shia marjeya. The center has a large hall for the men, and a smaller hall which can, sufficiently hold 200 persons. The ladies section has a hall which can accommodate about 150 persons and a playroom for the children. “He who is sure about the divine rewards will be more generous” (Imam Ali Ibne Musa Al-Ridha (as)

Statement of Support for the Alavi Foundation

The Alavi Foundation is owner of the world-renowned Piaget Building at 650 Fifth Avenue, in New York City. The building funds the Foundation’s charitable giving and symbolizes Persian-American pride, friendship and good-will to all, and the idea that immigrant communities can achieve the American Dream in this country that we love.

The Alavi Foundation makes charitable and philanthropic donations to educational, religious and cultural programs that support interfaith harmony, Islamic studies, and Persian language and literature within the United States.

Restrictions on the services and resources that the Alavi Foundation provides to others will have catastrophic results on numerous American organizations and individuals:
36 organizations serving over 30,000 congregants will be forced to shut down.

Deserving students will not have access to interest-free loans.

23 schools with 2,100 students and 120 staff will cease to operate.

Programs that have distributed over 150,000 free books about Islam, philosophy, and Persian culture will shut down.

Higher educational programs at 30 American Universities focusing on Islamic studies and Persian language and literature will be permanently discontinued. Affected institutions include Harvard University, Princeton University, California State University, Hunter College and Hartford Seminary.

Free medical clinics that have assisted thousands of indigent patients will have to curtail or stop their activities.

Please sign this petition to show support for this helpful foundation.

https://www.gopetition.com/petitions/statement-of-support-for-the-alavi-foundation.html

I support the Alavi Foundation and want it to continue its 40-year history of educational and philanthropic service to all peoples. By signing this petition, I proudly proclaim my support for the Alavi...

International Women's Day - can anyone think of any GREATER woman to have walked on this earth than Sayyida Fatimah Zahra (sa)??

You won't see many posts from us today to celebrate IWD because we're finalising some AMAZING plans to showcase some of the female role models in our community in line with the birth anniversary of the Lady of Light (sa)! Truly, this is and should be the date for International Women's Day for all the shia around the world!

For now, we'l leave you with a beautiful story. It is reported that the Prophet (SAW) kissed Fatimah (s.a.) frequently; one day, he was asked “Why do you kiss your daughter so much!?”
The Prophet (S) said in reply:

“Whenever I kiss Fatimah, I smell the scent of the Highest Heaven in her.”

Newly Built Entrance to the Holy Shrine of Imam Hussain (peace be upon him) in Karbala will open tomorrow 25th February, on the birth anniversary of his sister Sayeda Zainab (peace be upon her)

While crowds will fill the shrine of Imam Hussain to celebrate her birth, we wonder if anyone will be visiting her holy shrine in Sham!?

Arbaeen is now over in the holy land of Karbala and now the zuwaar have faced towards the holy city of Najaf. They will head there to give their condolences to Imam Ali(as) on the shahadat of the Prophet Muhammad(sawa).

This is where AlSayyeda Zainab(as) stood and asked if there was anyone out there to support her beloved brother Imam Hussain(as) and no one answered. Let us be the voices that do answer 1400 years later. Never let the word of the Imam die. Saturday marks the 40th day of our Imam's shahadat. #YaHussain

Who is Hussain?

A picture paints a thousand words. A Who is Hussain rep in Stockholm is embraced by a passer-by as she is touched by the story and timeless example of Hussain ibn Ali

12/03/2014

The holy prophet Muhammad(sawa) said to his family "My family, my household, my progeny! Will you have patience?" They said "Of course oh prophet of God!" then he narrated to them what would happen to them after his death.

Zainab(as) was not present during this gathering, however, the prophetic narration was told to her by her mother and father.

She memorized this narration and placed the oath upon her own shoulders, understood the lesson, and had patience all the time until she reached Karbala.

Imam Zain-ul-Abideen(as) stood by the dead body of his father Imam Hussain(as) and saw what he saw. I cannot describe to you what he saw at that moment. And his soul was just about to leave his body.

This is when Zainab(as) rushed to her nephew. "Oh my nephew! My dear, we do not have anyone but you. My master! I see you are about to die. What is wrong?!"

"My aunt!" He cried "This is the authority of Allah(swt) on this earth! This is Hussain(as)! The prophet cradled him in his arms, now look at his state (torn into pieces)!"

Now this is when Zainab(as) reminded her nephew of that gathering, of the oath that was taken. "God has taken from us, Ahlul Bayt(as), a pledge that we be patient and steady despite all the calamities and tragedies."
