The Month of Sha'ban Print E-mail


Imam Ali (A) once saw some Muslims arguing among themselves on the topic of fate and destiny, on the first day of Sha’ban.   He discouraged them from their preoccupation and instead drew their attention to the merits of this month. He said that the Lord had called it Sha’ban because His favours and bounties were scattered (sha’aba) all over during it. Allah presents His great bounties in this month which are easy to achieve, and inexpensive, said Imam Ali (A).  This could mean that the doing of ‘ibadah (acts of worship), performing other good deeds and abstaining from evils will carry manifold benefits.

ImamHussain2_KarbalaHussein Hussein Hussein Hussein
If the enemy attacked me and ripped my body apart,
And the only organ remaining alive is the heart,
Guaranteed, every beat it shall take it will shout Ya Hussein,
As long as we’re alive, we strive to follow your lane.
Hussein your name is embedded upon my heart,
From it, your name shall never ever depart,
For from my master, there is so much to learn and take,
By following you, we have the chance to meet your father and Rasoolullah by the Kawther Lake.

Abul Fadhl Abbas (A) Print E-mail

abbas-alamHadhrat Abbas was born in Medina on either 7th Rajab or 4th Shabaan 26 AH (645 AD). When the news of his birth reached Imam Ali, he prostrated himself on the ground as a token of his humble thanks to God. Imam Hussain took the baby in his arms and recited the Adhan and Iqama (Calls for Prayers) in his right and left ears respectively. Then the new born baby opened his eyes to see the beloved face of Imam Hussain. On the seventh day of his birth the ceremony of Aqeeqa (which is one of the emphasised traditions) was performed and Imam Ali named the child 'Abbas'.

The Imamate of Imam Sajjad (A) Print E-mail

emame_sajjad_32No Imam began his Imamat in a more tragic atmosphere. The first day of his Imamat saw him seriously ill and a captive of the army of Yazid in Karbala. His father and predecessor had sacrificed all he had on the altar of truth; and Imam Zayn al-'Abidin found himself with a group of helpless widows and orphans being led from place to place, from the durbar of Ibn Ziyad to the court of Yazid. Finally they were thrown into a prison, where the Imam spent the first year of his Imamat, cut off from the followers of his father and unable to look after their affairs.

Understandably, the tragedy of Karbala had created a chaos in the Shi'a world. Shi'as were in the throes of a dark pessimism, and the community was in disarray. A movement had already begun to accept Muhammad al Hanafiyah, son of Amir-ul-Mu'minin 'Ali as the 4th Imam. Muhammad al Hanafiyah himself had no such design. But the problem was: how to stop that movement without putting the life of Imam Zayn al-'Abidin in danger?

Hujjat Primary School: Update Print E-mail

Dear Members,

Salaamun Alaykum

We are writing to provide you with an update on our school application. At the time of our last communication we were in the process of completing our application to the Department for Education (DfE) for a free school.

We submitted our school proposal to DfE in October 2014. They responded in January of this year, with strong feedback on the areas of our application which met with their approval, as well as constructive advice on those which merited further consideration. Overall the DfE were very positive about our application, and highly recommended we put in a second submission.

Since then, we have been working tirelessly to strengthen our proposal. This includes recruiting personnel with the appropriate expertise and building cross-community and grassroots backing. On the recommendation of the DfE, we have applied to and since won the support of the New Schools Network (NSN). NSN is a charity which provides a range of services to help applicants develop their proposals and write effective applications.

It is imperative we build a strong and robust network of advocats, both inside and outside of the community framework. We are very pleased therefore to report that our project has gained support amongst other faith groups, who recognise the need for a high-performing school grounded in the values of Islam and which will aid integration, foster cohesion and promote a better understanding of our faith across the community.

We expect to have a further update for you later in the summer regarding the status of our application. In the meantime, we would be grateful if you could take the time to fill in our online survey form. This will help demonstrate to the DfE the need for a free school in Harrow. The link to the survey is here: http://www.hujjatschool.org/support-us/

Lastly, please do get in touch should you have any family members or friends who hold or have held senior positions of leadership within a primary school (SLT) as this will greatly assist our application.

Please remember us in your duas.

Shahr-Ramadhan 1436 Recitation Requests Update Print E-mail

Salaamun Alaykum

In the interests of ensuring fair allocations, requests for Shahr-Ramadhan 1436 will only be considered from 1st Rajab 1436. The Mukhi sub-committee will then convene to allocate slots and confirm what slots have been allocated by the middle of Shabaan. Confirmations for allocations will be sent out after 15th Sha'ban 1436.

Those wishing to recite Duas, Qur’an, Marthiya, Nawha or Qasida during the Holy Month should submit their requests via email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it from 1st Rajab 1436. Any requests beforehand will not be accepted.

This year, we will be blessed with the presence of Br Ali Najaf from Detroit for the last 12 nights of Shahr-Ramadhan who will undertake a large part of the recitations to enhance the spirituality during the blessed nights. We therefore have had to reduce the amount of recitation slots available for our members and we apologise beforehand, if we are unable to fulfil your chosen request.

If you have any queries, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
