A documentary narrating the life of Imam Hussain from his birth in Medina to his journey towards Karbala and until his Martyrdom in Karbala.

The Birth of Imam Hussein (as)
In the house of the Holy Prophet, a child who benefited humanity as if he was a Divine Impression reflecting the earth, was born on one of the nights of the month of Sha'ban. His father was Imam Ali, the best model of kindness towards his friends and the bravest against the enemies of Islam, and his mother was Lady Fatimah, the only daughter and child of the Holy Prophet, who had as universally acknowledged, inherited the qualities of her father. Imam Husayn, is the third Apostolic Imam. . .


Imam Husain ibn 'Ali (peace be upon him)
On the third of Sha'ban in the year 4 A.H. the city of Medina witnessed the birth of a boy in the house of Lady Fatimah (PBUH) and Imam Ali (PBUH); he was later nicknamed the 'Master of Martyrs'. Imam Ali (PBUH) took his son to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP), as was the custom of respect, in order for a name to be chosen for his newborn son, just as he had done for his first son. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP) named him 'Hussain' by the order of Allah (SWT). . .


Celebrating the Birth of Hazrat Abbas (a.s.)
How precise and careful the Imam was in choosing a life partner - he did not look for the most beautiful or the richest woman in Madinah - rather, the most fearing of Allah (swt) and from a spiritually rich family - thus hinting to us the importance of how to choose a spouse. . .


Celebrating the Birth of Imam Ali ibn Hussein Zainul Abideen (a.s.)
The Ornament of the Worshippers is one of the titles given to the Imam whose birth anniversary we commemorate in the month of Shabaan - an individual who also happens to be the 4th Imam. Of course, the person whom we are talking about is none other than Imam Ali ibnil Hussein Zainul Abideen (peace be upon him). . .


Celebrating the Birth of Imam Mahdi (a.s.)
The middle of the month of Shabaan holds, after the birth of the Messenger of Allah, one of the most important commemorations for the Shia and indeed the entire world of the oppressed and downtrodden. It is on the 15 of the year 255 AH, that Allah brought in the world, the completion of His light which would, in the future, make Islam the dominant force over the entire globe - even if the disbelievers and polytheists detest it - Imam al-Hujjat ibnil Hasan al-Askari (may Allah hasten his return). . .


Advent of Imam Mahdi (a.s.)
Imam Mahdi (a.s.) is the twelfth and last of the chain of the Purified Imams (a.s.) and the divine successors. He was born at the time of dawn, on Friday the 15th of Shaban 255 A.H. in the city of Samarrah (Kamaaluddin vol. 2, Pg. 428, 433 424, 430). His respected father is Imam Hasan al-Askari (a.s.). His beloved mother is Janab-e-Nargis Khatoon (R.A.). She was the descendant of the Caesar of Rome from her father's side and from her mother's side she had descended from Shamoon the vicegerant of Hazrat Isa (a.s.). . .


A Season for the Soul - Month of Sha'ban - Realising Hope
The Prophet has been quoted as saying, "It (Sha'ban) is a distinguished month and it is my month...it is a month in which sustenance for the Believers is increased and it is the month of performing deeds. . ."



Fatima Is Fatima

...... Shariati takes us to the heart of Shi'ism - Fatima, the beloved daughter of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). He describes the woman we could not see, the one we thought we knew but only after his guidance do we become aware of the fact that although we related each day directly to her spirit, she had been lost as a model for our daily lives. That is, we had an emotional attachment to her inner essence but we had removed her form. Shariati takes us to Fatima. He begins with the social customs of the Arabian Peninsula before her birth where according to custom, female children were buried alive at birth in order to save the family from the disgrace of having an unsuitable son-in-law. It was the revolutionary message of Islam which did away with this custom. God reveals through the Quran that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had been given the abundant river of Paradise and through that river, he shall have abundant progeny although according to Arab beliefs at that time, a man without a son is called 'cut-off'. How could it be? The father of a daughter will have abundant progeny?



Fatima The Gracious

This is a biography of Fatima az Zahra a.s. daughter of Prophet of Islam (saww), upto the time of Prophets death. Because of the extremely sensitive period which followed Prophets death, and the everlasting effects which the events thereafter left upon the Islamic ideology and the structure of various Muslim sects and issues, the compiler deemed necessary to study various historical books, especially those which dealth with Lady Fatima Zahra's life, to come up with the most accurate information regarding the prime of the post period of the Prophets death. Moreover, various sermons which were delivered during those events, were intentionally included in the book especially Fatima's speeches so as to allow researchers to study the said historical events independently. In the end, we would like to mention that this book will be very useful not only to information seeking readers, but also to researchers and history students.

One of the highlights in the life of the great Prophet Muhammad (SA) is the fact that he was untrained and unschooled (ie, he did not attend any school). He had not been trained by any teacher and neither he had acquainted himself with any written work.

How is the governmental system in Islam? What is Imamat and how will an Imam be Designated? Do the Prophets (s.a.w) successors have to be like him, chosen by God, in fallible, Immune from sin and error? How much does the famous story of shoddier on Alias (p.b.u.h) Imamett has credibility and what debater have been propounded on that subject?

Finally, what events happened to cause Islam to be drawn from its original path? These are segments of the debater in the small, valuable and distinguished book.
