The Story of Karbala is a tale of five journeys of tears. The first journey started on 28th Rajab, From Madina to Mecca. Each journey had its hero and heroine. The hero of this first journey was Imam Hussain(AS) and the heroine was the memory of Fatima Sughra (SA), his beloved daughter whom he had left behind.

Something that stayed in my mind throughout the trip was a statement made by Sheikh Panju. He said that those who die in the way of Allah SWT, the martyrs, are not dead in the way we perceive one to be normally dead. In this case these are our Imams.

Like a dove I fly towards you – Visiting Karbala - Part 1

In the summer of 2011 I told my parents that I was going to Karbala, whether it be with a friend, with a group, or on my own. They told me I wouldn’t and that I couldn’t go for fear of my safety. I disregarded this, I was determined to go. After trying everything, I thought I would end up going on my own, until I was referred to a group by a friend of mine. A group of Khojas, which turned out to be the friendliest group of people I had encountered in my whole life.

Social Dimensions of Hajj

Social Dimensions of Hajj

All Muslim brothers and sisters must bear in mind that one of the important elements of the philosophy of Hajj is creation of mutual understanding and consolidation of brotherhood among the Muslims. It is therefore, incumbent upon the Ulema and clergymen to discuss their essential political and social problems with other brothers in order to devise plans for the elimination of such problems so as to enable the other brothers to pose these resolutions to their own. Ulema and authorities upon returning to their countries.(1)

Hajj in Social Perspective

Hajj in Social Perspective

The fact that Hajj has been granted the status of being the third pillar of the secondary principles (Foroudeen) Islam is itself an indication of its importance in religion (Deen). Indeed, such stress has been laid on the performance of Hajj that no person upon whom Hajj has become compulsory should ever delay in fulfilling this obligation. The Prophet (SAW) is reported to have said: “The one who was not prevented from Hajj by a definite need, or a tyrant ruler, or a severe illness and he passed away without having performed the Hajj, then he may pass away if he wishes as a Jew or, if he wishes, as a Christian” (Daaremi). Allahu Akbar! What a stern warning!
