Survey in germany to rcognize Islam officially, Please Vote

By: Dr. Halil Toker

Dear all,

In Germany the government started a survey to learn that Islam also should be an official religion like Judaism and Christianity. It is a pity that "No" votes are much more than "Yes" ones.

To make it possible for Islam to be a official religion please cast your vote by clicking "Ja" button and after that send it by clicking the "Zur Auswertung" button in the below given line.

With regards
Prof. Dr. Halil Toker

Unique video of Bassim Karbalaei on his return to Iraq

Salaamu Alaikum

AIM presents a unique video of renowned recitor, Mulla Bassim al-Karbalaey, on his return to Iraq after being in exile for 23 years.

Mulla Bassim Al-Karbalaei on his return to Iraq in 2003 was met by hundreds of thousands of fellow mourners who for many years would listen to his latmiyyas in secrecy because they were banned under Saddam's regime. Many had been arrested and executed in the past for simply having a tape of Bassim. In this memorable video, Bassim reaches the holy city of Najaf and recites in front of the blessed shrine of Imam Ali (as).

An inspirational video that touches the heart of all the lovers of the AhlulBayt (as).

We pray to Allah for the protection of those who uphold His Signs and ask Him to shower them abundantly with His Blessings.

Important clarification by Mukhtar Force

It is heard that some people print and circulate books and pamphlets under name of Mukhtar Force Pakistan while MFP has never published any book or leaflet as its only task is protection of Sha’aer-Ullah and motherland Pakistan as well as defense of mahafil, meetings, majalis and juloos of Wila and Azadari.

We and our coming generations are ready to offer every kind of sacrifice for this mission.
