Shahadat of Hadhrat Abu Talib (A)

Hadhrat Abu Talib (A) supported the Holy Prophet of Islam (SAW) in all difficult situations. He left this world on 26th Rajab, three years before the Hijrah of the Holy Prophet of Islam (SAW)

The Holy Prophet of Islam (SAW) was deeply grieved and named this year as "The Year of Sadness."

In 570 AD the Abyssinian Armies under the leadership of Abraha attacked the Holy Mecca to demolish the Kaaba. Hadhrat Abdul-Muttalib (A), the grandfather of our Prophet (saw), who was known as the Master of Makkah, went round the Kaaba praying to Allah the Almighty, to prevent the invaders from demolishing the House which Hadhrat Ibraheem al-Khaleel (A) and his son Hadhrat Ismaeel (A) built for people to worship Allah only.  Allah, the Almighty, accepted

Commemorating the Shahadat of Sayyida Zainab (A)

Bibi Zainab (A):

"O Yazid! Practice any trick you can and do anything that you think would vanish Islam, but you should know that you can not eradicate our message, path and memory. You should know that our memory will never die."

A year after imprisonment in the cells of Damascus, Yazid offered the choice of return back to Medina for the family and friends of Imam Husayn (A). Arrangements were made with velvet and beautifully decorated seats for the people, but Bibi Zainab (A) refused and ordered that they be covered in black, to show the passers-by that the contingent was in mourning.

The Four Famous Questions Discussed by Imam Ali (a.s.)
during the Khilafat of 2nd Khalif

History tells us that Imam Ali ( a.s.) was always available during the time of three kholafas for advice on religious matters.
His position as the jurist was on the top of the list among all the companions of the Holy Prophet (saw).

Umar Ibne Khattab, the 2nd Caliph had given clear instructions that when Ali was present in the mosque of the Prophet,
no one should take precedence over him in answering questions on religious matters.

In one such encounter during the time of the 2nd Caliph, a group of Jewish scholars approached the court of 2nd Caliph and said,
"We have a few questions. If we get the answers to these questions correctly, we will accept the Islamic faith.
"Ask whatever you want to ask," said the caliph.
