We always remember the calamity of Aashura. There is no grief like it. There is no sorrow like it. Especially as we approach Imam Husain’s SA Chehlum, we also remember those who survived Karbala and the calamities that befell them. Click here to read further.
Our lament for the martyrs of Karbala is unlike any other grief. Although innumerable tragedies and calamities have befallen since then, whether they are atrocities or natural disasters, at some point they are relegated to the annals of history. Not Karbala. Click here to read further.

Like prayer, fasting, and hajj, zakaat is one of the seven da’aim, or foundational pillars, of the Shari’at of Islam. Zakaat khuda no haqq chhe. For every Mumin, it is compulsory to offer zakaat once every year. Du’aat Kiraam have encouraged Mumineen to araz zakaat during the holy month of Ramadan, in order to gain abundant sawaab. For details on how to araz zakat, please click here.

The Sijill article in the 61st issue refers to the belief of Ikhwanus Safa that the soul (nafs) survives after it leaves the body (jism). The body is a vessel through which the soul prepares for its salvation. In demonstrating that this belief is held by many noble people, and that this belief is the source of selfless kindness and sincere friendship, the Rasail of Ikhwanus Safa present the story of the vizier of King Khaishuwan. The vizier sacrifices himself to save the king and the people of the kingdom because of his belief that his body is a transient vessel, and because of his willingness to sacrifice himself for others.
Introducing this Hikaayat, the Ikhwan start by stating:
“Know my brother, that he who does not believe that he will be rewarded for his friendship and kindness to you after he leaves his body, he is surely not a true friend and not a sincere advisor. Do not be lured by one who helps you only for material gain – to protect his body or to provide benefit for it; those who seek an advantage in which there is a fear of one suffering and the other being saved, each one hopes that he will gain that advantage, so that he is the fortunate one and the other is aggrieved. That is certainly not the belief of the Brethren in helping one another; quite the contrary. The Brethren’s goodness and nobility of character is manifest in what is narrated about the vizier of king Khaishuwan.”
