Arbaeen of Imam Husayn
What follows in this piece is a brief look at the "Arba'een" [the commemoration of 40 days after the tragic events of Kerbala] of Imam al-Husayn, peace be upon him. The article concludes with the Arabic text of Ziyarat Arba'een with full English translation and a brief exposition on certain passages of this powerful and moving visitation. Insha-Allah, a more comprehensive understanding of this ziyarat will be presented in the future. . .

Why are millions flocking to Karbala? Why are people drawn to the tragedy of Karbala and Imam Hussain (as)? These very questions are on the lips of every person today. Ahlulbayt TV brings you exclusive footage and commentary by brother Ali Fadhil as he explains the significance of the day of Arbaeen.

World's Biggest Pilgrimage Now Underway, And Why You've Never Heard of it!
It's not the Muslim Hajj, or the Hindu Kumbh Mela.. Known as Arbaeen, it is the world's most populous gathering and you've probably never heard of it! Not only does the congregation exceed the number...


Reflections on the pilgrimage of LOVE
Physically exhausting, yet spiritually uplifting, are the words to describe the anniversary of 40 days after the martyrdom of Imam Husayn(a). It is dubbed 'the world's largest peaceful gathering'. But peaceful isn't the only word I'd use to describe the experience. In fact, for the most part, it is far from peaceful! Can you imagine the combined chaos of 26 million devotees, driven by their passion, only to be united by one incentive. . .


Significance of Arba'een and the Performance of the Ziyarat of Arba'een]
Why forty days? Because the number 40 holds tremendous spiritual significance in the realm of transformation. Jesus wandered in the desert for forty days in order to experience purification and come to a greater understanding of himself and his mission. Moses and his people traveled through the desert for forty years before arriving at their home in the holy land. . .


Too many Yazids and no Imam Husain in the Ummah today
There is a long list of tragedies that have befallen us that can be cited as our present-day Karbalas: Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Chechnya, Kashmir, Bosnia and Gujrat are but a few. . .


The Women of Karbala: Keeping Imam Hussain's Message Alive
The women present at the Battle of Ashura in Karbala, Iraq, in 61 AH were entrusted with a special mission: to keep Imam Hussain's (peace be upon him) message alive. Under the guidance of Imam Zainul Abideen and the leadership of Lady Zainab (peace be upon them), the women were to spread the message of Imam Hussain's sacrifice even while they went through huge ordeals and sorrows. Their grief at the murder of the Imam was a vehicle of change, and cannot be separated from their accomplishment of the mission. . .



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?

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.

This book was first published in 1971 as part of the Islamic Correspondence Course run by Bilal Muslim Mission of Tanzania. The idea behind writing this book was to satisfy the needs of our new generation - the youths and students, as well as recent converts, who are unable to study the scholastic books written by the Muslim scholars and whose only source of information seems to be the biased writings of orientalists presented as "objective" and "authentic" studies.

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? Do any authentic documents racist on whether the prophet ( s.a.w) designated the twelve Imam for the vicegerency? How does history judge event and the leadership of the vicegerency after the prophet? 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.
