    River of black – Arba’een 2015

    As the midday sun beats down on the hard dusty streets of Najaf, we gather at post No.1 for group selfies. Another 1451 posts, each 50 meters apart, map our journey along the Najaf-Karbala road. Our small group is joining the annual Arba’een walk to Karbala in Iraq and it will take three days to […]

    Visiting the shrines in Iraq

    I looked around me. The sight of masses of people walking around in draping black garments, sitting down on fine Persian rugs, reciting, reading and contemplating was alluring. I stared up at the ceiling; I was mesmerised, almost drowning into the intricately designed floral panels, golden boards, stunning silver chandeliers flowing out from the ceiling with […]

    Travelling to Karbala

    The tragedy of Imam Hussain (as) holds huge importance within Shia Islam. Sayed Mahdi Modarresi reflects on his journey to Karbala. Several years ago I met an Australian who had converted to Islam. Though he must have struggled with many intellectual and social factors impeding his adoption of the faith, it wasn’t his conversion which […]

    I was told as a child that stories have happy endings , But Hussain your stories and tragedies are never ending, Despite my love for you , I know my loyalty isn’t true , My sins are evident and nothing new, My manners and good deeds are little and few, Why do tears make rivers in […]

For decades, millions have marched year on year in the name of one of the most important historical events that has ever occurred — Karbala.

    The epic of Karbala: A divine decree

    Dr Murtadha Alidina considers Imam Hussain’s knowledge of the unseen regarding the Battle of Karbala and explores why he still proceeded despite knowing the tragic outcome. It is often overlooked that the events leading up to the tragedy of Karbala were divinely decreed and designed. When Imam Hussain (as) visited the Prophet’s (pbuh) grave for […]

    Black is back

    Muharram is the first month of the Islamic calendar; however, as Muslims, we choose not to commemorate the start of the New Year in celebrations. Instead, we mourn and remember the sacrifice of our third Imam, Imam Hussain (as). How we choose to mourn and display our sadness has become a subject of discussion and […]

  • Will you be a hero today?

    Will you be a hero today?

    “..And whoever saves one life, it is as if he has saved the whole of mankind..” – The Holy Quran 5:32 Walking towards the NHS Blood donation center under the heavy ‘typically London’ rain, a mixture of excitement, nerves and butterflies flutter in the pit of my stomach. Adrenaline is rushing through my veins, my spirits […]
