By: Anjum Kermani

HELSINKI, Finland: To pay homage to the matchless and supreme sacrifice rendered by Al-Imam Abi Abdellah Al-Hussein (AS) and his 72 faithful companions in the burning desert of Karbala some 1400 years ago for safety of high human values and defense of religion and shariah, various organizations and associations arranged Majalis in Finland.

In the capital city of Helsinki, Ashab Al-Kissa Center organized a ten-day mourning program in remembrance of Rehanator-Rasul Al-Imam Al-Hussein (AS).

The daily programs included recitation of Quran and Ziarat-e-Ashura, speeches by Sayyed Ehsan Al-Hakim and Alhaj Abdulbaseer Alkhaleef, marathi (elegies) by Hussein Alkhaleef, Aamer Aal-i-Shahir and Kadhim al-Imarah and dinner.

On Ashura, Moharram 10, Maqtal (story of brutal killing of Imam Hussein) was recited by Alhaj Abdulbaseer Alkhaleef and his brother Abo-Forqan Hussein Alkhaleef before Zohr prayer. After that, Ziarat-i-Ashura was ecited by Alhaj Abo-Zainab.    

  "Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."MORE ..
