Notice of SGM: Sun 19 Nov 2017 at 8pm Print E-mail

14 November 2017

Dear Members,

Salaamun Alaykum

In line with clause 9 of the Constitution, notice is hereby given by the Executive Committee of a Special General Meeting (SGM) to be held on Sunday 19 November 2017 at 8pm at the Husaini Shia Islamic Centre, Stanmore, HA7 4LQ, to transact the following:

1) Recitation of the Holy Qur'an and the English translation thereof

2) Consideration and adoption of the following resolution relating to the lease on our property on Grosvenor Vale, known as “the Ruislip Property”:

With regards to our property in Ruislip on Grosvenor Vale, we, the General Body of The KSIMC of London (KSIMC), hereby resolve to give the Executive Committee (EC), the mandate to negotiate and finalise a contract:

Granting a new lease for a term of 5 years to Wealdstone Football Club (2000) Limited in relation to the whole of the 12.189 acres of the Grosvenor Vale Property, which is currently leased to Ruislip Manor Sports and Social Club Limited. As part of this new lease, we will be

a. Establishing a right to use at a reasonable notice on the 8.689 acres (non-football stadium part) during the new 5-year lease term granted to Wealdstone Football Club (2000) Limited at a nominal/peppercorn rent (£nil).

b. Creating an option which enables KSIMC, upon three months’ notice (at no cost) to call for a surrender of this new lease by Wealdstone Football Club upon which KSIMC will immediately grant a lease back to Wealdstone Football Club for 3.5 acres (football stadium part) for a term equal to the remainder of the term of this new lease plus five more years.

In line with clause 9, the Executive Committee feel it is in the community’s interest to hold this discussion before the 21 days required for an EGM as this will put us into the busy Christmas period when participation in any discussion will be lower. Contractual reasons dictate a resolution to this matter is preferable before the end of 2017 and negotiations have only recently concluded yielding a Heads of Terms document in line with the above. A Special General Meeting has thus been called.

Registration will commence at 7:45pm. Both Male and Female members are encouraged to attend.

Updated Constitution Print E-mail

Dear Members,

Salaam Alaykum

Arbaeen of Imam Hussein (A) Print E-mail
Imam Hasan Al-Askari (A) has said: The signs of a believer are five:
•    Performing fifty-one rakats of salaa daily,
•    Reciting Ziyarah of Arba'een,
•    Wearing a ring in the right hand,
•    Placing the forehead on dust [during sajda], and
•    Saying "Bismillah al-rahman al-rahim" aloud in salaa.” al-a'mal, p. 589, as stated [by Ibn Tawus]

Imam Hasan Al-Askari (A) includes the performance of Ziyarah of Arba’een as one of the five marks for a believer, in addition to reciting 51 rakats of salaa, audible recitation of Bismillah, wearing a ring on one’s right hand and doing sajda on dust.

Why is so much importance given to the performance of the Ziyarah of Arba’een and the observance of Arba’een (40 days of mourning)?

The 40th (Arba’een or Chehlum) marks an important turning point in the movement of Kerbala. This day, which is no less important to the day of Aashura is important for many reasons – the prime being that the Ahlu’l Bayt reached the land of Kerbala on this day and performed the visitation to Sayyid ash-Shuhada Imam Hussain (A) and the loyal family and friends who gave their life for the cause of Islam.

Ziyarat, as we all know is a visitation, which in essence, is the act of speaking with and visiting our role models.  Of course the physical manifestation of the ziyarat is actually being present in Kerbala to perform the Ziyarah of Arba’een, but, in reality, that is not possible for every believer.  So does making ziyarah while not in Kerbala give one the same benefits?  Ahadith tell us that performing the Ziyarah of Imam Hussain (A) far from Kerbala would hold the same significance as being in the land of Kerbala, as long as the person performing the Ziyarah has truly understood the status of the Imam and seeks to emulate him.

Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (A) states that the heavens wept over Imam Hussain (A) for forty mornings, rising red and settling red.  As we complete 40 days of remembrance of our Imam, we re-assert our pledge of obedience and loyalty to him,

“I bear witness that you are the Imam (who is) the upright, the pious, well-pleased (with Allah), the pure, the guide and the rightly-guided.
I bear witness that you fulfilled the pledge of Allah and you struggled in His way…I am a friend of whoever befriends him ...”

By performing the Ziyarah of Arba’een, we pledge that we will continue to follow the path of justice and righteousness and will reject injustice and speak up against the oppressors of the time,

“I am an enemy of whoever is his enemy”

In essence, we make a promise to continue to mould our lives according to the teaching of Imam Hussain (A)

But why is it that we mourn and remember Imam Hussain (A) for a period of forty days and then move on?
Our Prophet (SAW) has said, “The earth mourns the death of a believer for forty mornings.”   Therefore it appears that the deceased should be remembered and mourned over for a period of forty days.

Performing an act for a continuous period of forty days is also known to help one to not just form a habit, but also to carry on the practice for the rest of his life.

If we look at studies dealing with bringing a lifestyle change, we notice the time period emphasized to bring about a change is usually 6 weeks which is about the same time period as 40 days (to be exact it is 42 days).

In the book 40 Days to Personal Revolution: A Breakthrough Program to Radically Change Your Body and Awaken the Sacred Within Your Soul, the author Baron Baptiste explains the significance of forty days:

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 travelled through the desert for forty years before arriving at their home in the holy land. Noah preserved the sacredness of life by sailing his ark for forty days and forty nights. According to the Kabbalah, the ancient Jewish mystical text, it takes forty days to ingrain any new way of being into our system….

Reciting particular duas for a period of 40 days is highly recommended in our practices as well.  The unit 40 (forty) is said to be very effective. If a particular Duaa is recited 40 times, or 40 people gather to recite it, or it is recited for 40 days then its effectiveness is highly increased.

It is reported from Imam Ja'fer al-Sadiq (A) that whoever recites Dua-e-Ahad for forty days, after morning prayers will be amongst the helpers of the 12th Imam (A).

Visitation of the shrine of Imam Hussain (A) as well as Masjid-e-Sahla for 40 consecutive Tuesdays / Thursdays is also very highly recommended and is one of the acts that promise a visit from the 12th Imam (A).

Thus, as we perform the Ziyarat of Arba’een and commemorate the Arba’een, 40 days of mourning of Imam Hussain (A), we hope and pray that this forty days of remembrance of Imam Hussain (A), brings about a transformation in us by which we can continue to follow the path of Imam Hussain (A) and carry on his message of upholding justice with true faith and a strong sense of sacrifice!

wfaidsyriaWF-AID is working inside Syria and through the Damascus co-ordination office, we will work to provide both short-term and long-term solutions.

Syria is still in turmoil after years of conflict and around 6 million people are left internally displaced, having escaped their hometowns in search for safety. The UNHCR estimates that some of the 4.8 million refugees those who may have been living temporarily in neighbouring countries are now returning to their homeland after years of displacement.

WF-AID are supporting the Lady Zaynab Helping Hands Syria Appeal to raise funds for medical assessments and treatments, along with emergency aid in the form of food baskets, financial gifts, education supplies and home supplies.

Towns lay in ruins and homes remain gutted due to fires and explosions, forcing families to seek a new home elsewhere. Some Syrian widows and orphans have travelled as far as 350km to reach the Sayeda Zainab (AS) area, in search of solitude and safety.

£100 for immediate aid, in the form of food baskets, financial aid, educational and home supplies for Syriran mothers, children and orphans.

£150 for providing medical assessments, treatments and medicine for Syrian mothers, children and orphans.
