يَا أَيَّتُهَا النَّفْسُ الْمُطْمَئِنَّةُ ارْجِعِي إِلَى رَبِّكِ رَاضِيَةً مَرْضِيَّةً فَادْخُلِي فِي عِبَادِي وَادْخُلِي جَنَّتِي

On behalf of the Islamic Unity Society (IUS), we would like to extend our condolences and most sincere sympathy to the Imam of our time, Imam Mahdi AJF, to our Scholars, and to all believers in the world, and to you, dear ones, on the occasion of the commemoration of the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (as).

Imam Hussain Blood Donation Campaign (IHBDC) would like to thank donors who’ve come forward to donate blood and save lives over the past few months. We encourage everyone who is eligible, fit and well to donate blood in honour of Imam Hussain (as) this Muharram. Most donor centres remain open and running as normal with extra safety measures for donors and staff in place.

IHBDC is rising to the challenge to do our part to respond to the current pandemic and support our communities. We’ve partnered with NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT), Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service (SNBTS) and Muslim & Non-Muslim organisations, eg. Turn To Love, WhoisHussain, Muslim Doctor Association, and approximately 20 mosques / centres to come together to drive a new plasma donation campaign across the Muslim community that will reach a peak during Muharram and Arbaeen.
Who has the highest antibodies for plasma donation? They are:
Despite COVID-19 continuing to impact our daily lives, we’d like you and/or your local centre to join us in this effort to respond to it by saving lives via sharing common marketing materials (which’ll be made available very soon) across your networks via text, email, social media, video, TV and website. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
