A Novel aspect to commemorate Muharram ‘40 Islamic Centres in 40 Days’


JNN 09 Dec 2010 : “Only those shall maintain Allah’s mosques, who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and establish prayer and give zakat, and fear no one except Allah. They, hopefully, will be among the guided.” (Holy Qur’an, 9:18)

The months of Muharram and Safar offer the annual opportunity to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Husayn ibn `Ali (AS). In the spirit, of keeping the message of Imam Husayn (AS) alive, The World Federation of KSIMC in Partnership with The Africa Federation, The Council of European Jamaats and NASIMCO are launching the MUHARRAM 1432 APPEAL:  40 ISLAMIC CENTRES IN 40 DAYS.

THE STATE OF RELIGIOUS CENTRES IN PAKISTAN
Over 40 Shia religious centres including Mosques, Imambarghas and Madrasahs were ruined in the 2010 floods that devastated Pakistan. These institutions were once the nucleus of our communities and were instrumental in meeting the religious, spiritual and educational needs of so many men, women and children. Today, these very centres are either submerged in water or crumbled to the ground; those that are still partially standing are unsafe and deserted.

ABOUT THE APPEAL
The 40 ISLAMIC CENTRES IN 40 DAYS APPEAL is a 40-day campaign led by the Islamic Education team of The World Federation of KSIMC to raise funds to rebuild the damaged Islamic Centres in Pakistan. By re-establishing these institutions, it is our goal to keep the message of the Ahlul Bayt (as) alive. Working together with Hussaini Foundation, 40 damaged centres have been identified across Pakistan which need rebuilding:
