As the month of Muharram is coming closer the hearts of momineen are getting impatient with the love of Aba Abdillah Imam Hussain a.s.

Imam Hussain took the mission of Karbala in order to revive the religion of Islam with few companions. His stand was not for power or rule, rather it was against tyranny, injustice, immorality and abuse which was happening towards the religion of Islam.

Muharram is the time to renew our allegiance of faithfulness with Imam of our time. InshaAllah this year in the holy month of Muharram we will take our oath with our present Imam a.j.f.s to be faithful towards the values of the religion Islam and do efforts towards the betterment of humanity.

Similar to past many years Islamic Ahlulbayt Foundation of New Zealand will be hosting English language Majlis programs from 1st till 12th of Muharram.

Molana Seyed Mothafar Al-Qazwini who is from Karbala Iraq and belongs to a respectable family will be conducting 12 majalis starting from the 1st of Muharram (tentatively Monday 3rd October).
