Recommended Duas and Supplications for this month
A world of love, of morality, of compassion, is one worth striving for. What’s more – it’s within our grasp. All we have to do is learn from the life of a truly inspirational man named Hussain.
Hussain was born in 620 AD to a family famed for their values of equality, love and peace. Raised by his grandfather Prophet Muhammad (PBUH & HF - the last prophet of Islam). Hussain was a figure known for his integrity, generosity of spirit and blindness to colour, social class and personal beliefs. It was for this reason that people flocked to him and his family.
Hadhrat Abbas was born in Medina on 4th Shabaan 26 AH (645 AD). When the news of his birth reached Imam Ali, he prostrated himself on the ground as a token of his humble thanks to God. Imam Hussain took the baby in his arms and recited the Adhan and Iqama (Calls for Prayers) in his right and left ears respectively. Then the new born baby opened his eyes to see the beloved face of Imam Hussain. On the seventh day of his birth the ceremony of Aqeeqa (which is one of the emphasised traditions) was performed and Imam Ali named the child 'Abbas'.
No Imam began his Imamat in a more tragic atmosphere. The first day of his Imamat saw him seriously ill and a captive of the army of Yazid in Karbala. His father and predecessor had sacrificed all he had on the altar of truth; and Imam Zayn al-'Abidin found himself with a group of helpless widows and orphans being led from place to place, from the durbar of Ibn Ziyad to the court of Yazid. Finally they were thrown into a prison, where the Imam spent the first year of his Imamat, cut off from the followers of his father and unable to look after their affairs.
The one whose martyrdom, grief, pain, sorrows and children's captivity were all only for God will never fade out of the memories. Instead, by the pace of time and age his love, fascination, and charm will grow in the hearts of people. And each year the love and fascination of the people with respect to that "pure and chaste revolutionary" increases. Imaam Hussain (A.S.) spent 57 years of his prolific life for the sake of God's love and God's search. Many times he traveled, to the God's house for pilgrimage, on foot. He was very fond of prayers confessions and supplication talking intimately. So far so, that on the last night of his life, he asked for respite only that he might sit all alone and make confessions and supplications, to his God.
Volunteers have a powerful influence on the success of our programmes. Put simply, The Hussaini Islamic Mission could not achieve the results it does without the work and support of its volunteers.
We are looking for volunteer from every walk and stream of life as we have variety of roles and opportunities from lending a hand at various HIM events to offering your professional expertise, we've got a role for you.
The Imam Hussain Blood Donation Campaign started in 2006 and is the first campaign within the UK which aims to increase the number of regular blood donors from Muslim communities.
The campaign runs throughout the month of Muharram of the Islamic calendar annually and blood donation sessions happen in centres across the UK.
At the same time, the campaign seeks to increase awareness about Hussain, grandson of Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon them), and the tragedies he faced in Karbala when martyred for standing up against oppression and tyranny, and for justice and equality. Millions of people worldwide are inspired by his role model, kindness and example of sacrifice and give blood as a way to help others in need and live up to these high values.
