Imam Hassan Al-Askari (AS) Print E-mail

 

Birth 10th Rabi-ul Aakher 232 AH in Madina
Titles Al-Askari
Death 8th Rabi-ul Awwal 260 AH  Samarrah, Iraq

“Generosity has a limit, which when crossed becomes extravagance; caution has a limit which when crossed becomes cowardice; thriftiness has a limit, which when crossed becomes miserliness; courage has a limit, which when crossed becomes fool-hardiness. Let this moral lesson suffice: refrain from doing anything which you would disapprove of if done by someone else.”
(as quoted in A Brief History of The Fourteen Infallibles p. 155-157)

Samarra is a garrison town about 60 miles north of Baghdad. River Euphrates flows in the middle of the town, and because of the surrounding hills a cool breeze keeps the area cooler in comparison to Baghdad. The word ‘Asker’ in arabic is used for army. Our 11th Imam’s title became known as Askari, the one who lived all his life in a garrison town

There is another story related with this name by many historians. Once the Caliph called him in his palace and ordered his army to march past before him. The Caliph wanted to boast or to impress the Imam of his power or to dissuade the Imam from any thoughts of revolution against the Abbasid Caliphate. When the march past was over, Imam asked the Caliph to gaze between two of his fingers. What the Caliph saw was a huge army of lancers and swords men marching past, a much bigger crowd than the Caliphs army. He was astonished at this miracle and named him Askari, i.e. the man with a big army.

Eid-e-Zahra Print E-mail

hassan_abbayz-eid-e-zehra-sa

9th of Rabi al-Awwal is the day of Eid. It is our greatest Eid and the Eid of our followers.” (As narrated to Ahmad ibn Is-haq al-Qummi by Imam Muhammad al-Hadi (A)

With heavy hearts, we take this opportunity to bid farewell to the Martyrs of Karbala as the Ayyam-e-Aza come to an end. We will have to wait for another year to witness and experience maajlis, matam, Ashura, Arbaeen, mourning, and azadari at this scale. As we remove the black cloth from the walls, we salute the Martyrs of Karbala and declare that we are with you, we are with you, surely we are against your enemies. We will endeavour to perform your Ziyarat, and will endeavour to shed tears in your remembrance every Thursday night. Furthermore, we will strive to apply the principles you stood for in our daily lives; the foremost of which is dedication and loyalty to the Imam of the Time (A).

Lady Fatima Masuma (Qum) Print E-mail

Titles Masuma, Karimat Ahl al-Bayt, Tahira,
Birth 1st Dhul Qa’dah, 173 AH
Death 10th Rabi al-Thani 201 AH
Buried Qum, Iran
 
A lady from my children whose name will be Fatima, daughter of Musa, will die in Qum. On the Day of Judgement this lady will intercede for all my Shi’a to enter Heaven.” (Qadi Nurullah Shustari reporting from the 6th Imam)

The title of Masuma was given to this noble lady by her brother, Imam Ali Al-Ridha (A). It is worth noting that this title was awarded to her after her death and she was not referred to by this name during her life-time. This also nullifies the erroneous view that she died after her brother, Imam al-Ridha (A), on hearing the news of his death.

Resident Aalima Appointment Print E-mail

The KSIMC of London is pleased to announce that it has appointed Sister Masuma Jaffer as its Resident Aalima.

For some time, the Executive Committee has been keen to cater more specifically to the needs and requirements of the female members of the community. This appointment is a significant step forward to address those needs and it is hoped that the Resident Aalima will provide a source of knowledge, guidance and support.

Sister Masuma Jaffer is eminently qualified to undertake this position, having completed both her BA and MA in Islamic Studies, as well as further studies in Qum. She is also a qualified Muslim Chaplain and has a diploma in Counselling.

The Resident Aalima will undertake the following main functions:

1. Devise and implement a programme of classes and seminars for all sections of the female community during the daytime and evenings, covering a variety of areas including Aqaid, Akhlaq, Fiqh and Quran Tafseer

2. Hold a weekly surgery where female members can meet the Resident Aalima in person to discuss any questions or issues

3. Answer questions from female members via a dedicated email account

4. Provide counselling and welfare support to female members of the community

In order to ensure that classes and seminars are best suited to the needs of the female members of the community, please can you complete this (very short!) survey to let us know which subject areas you are interested in and when you are able to attend.

http://hujj.at/aalimasurvey

The programme of classes and seminars will Inshallah commence in January 2017 and full details will be available on the Jamaat website in due course.

 
Hussaini Volunteering Bank (HVB) Print E-mail
Articles

When you drive into the mosque you are directed by a CPV, you sit in the program run by the mukhi whilst downstairs in the Kitchen, chai is being made to be served to you at the end.

What do all these things have in common?

Our identity as a community runs on the foundation of people volunteering their time. Unfortunately this ethos surrounding the institution of volunteering seems to have faded away, especially amongst the younger members. This needs to be revived now more than ever. Why does the largest KSIMC community in Europe struggle to find volunteers?

On the surface it may not seem this way as our programs run seamlessly, children at madressa are taught and in the unfortunate event of a death Ghusl is performed. However, there is a dire need for committed volunteers especially from the younger generation. The issue may not be because people don’t want to volunteer their time, it could be because they have wanted to volunteer but don’t know how to get involved. We have identified that people find it hard to get involved as they may not know who to contact or how to get involved.

What are we doing about this situation?

Hussaini Volunteering Bank(HVB) is an initiative that has been set up for attendees, members, Hujjat and SJ teams to have a medium of communication between the volunteers and teams. HVB has identified crucial areas whilst working with the current SJ and Hujjat teams, where there is a lack of volunteers. Why should current volunteers have to worry about what will happen if they are not there?

The perfect situation would be to have members on a rota, we understand that this may not be possible for everyone. Maybe you can volunteer an hour or two of your time a week or HVB can store your details in our database, and when needed the admin team can call upon you for events such as: MAMT, Ramadhan, Muharram and other mosque events.

Stanmore offers a variety of volunteering roles to the general public where members can utilize and harness skills and experience from their work and education. HVB gives you the freedom to choose where you would like to volunteer your time.

We welcome anyone who is 16 and over from both ladies and gents to fill out the form below. Make sure to include your skills, interests and availability as this will help us to match you with the right team. Alternatively you may already know what you want to do and we can put you in direct contact with that team. HVB will never turn down someone who would like to volunteer. Sign up as a volunteer: http://hujj.at/hvb

The philosophy of HVB is “Giving back to the community, that has given us so much,” It was how our forefathers achieved in building the centre we currently have, a great embodiment of this spirit was Marhum Mulla Asghar M M Jaffer.

HVB has the full backing and commitment of both Hujjat and SJ at all levels in achieving our goals from this initiative, we hope we can count on having the commitment of our members.

Thank you,
HVB Team

Notice: Open Meeting (Shura) - Property Update Print E-mail
News

Dear Members,

Salaamun Alaykum

To facilitate greater communication between the Jamaat and members, we try and hold a number of Open Meetings (Shura) throughout the year. These are on various themes or targeted at various sections of the community. Insh'Allah these allow members an opportunity to ask the Executive questions about the running of the organisation and allow the EC to share more information with members.

Our next Shura will inshAllah be held on Sunday 22 January 2017 for both Ladies and Gents. This will start at 4:44pm with Salaatul Maghribayn in the Main Hall. The primary topic of discussion will be the C&L Club Property Project. The Property Committee will share the latest developments with the community and further discussion will be had regarding its progress and direction. This session will be an opportunity for the community to hear information that is not possible to share on the website. There will be no live broadcast. As a project of great importance to the community, both men and women are encouraged to attend.
