Message of Moharram

Dear Brothers, Khuddam and Atfal

Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah

I hope and pray that, by the grace of Allah, you are keeping well.

As we pass through the month of Moharram-ul-Haraam, it is important that we understand the significance of this month.
It is the first month of the Islamic Calendar and the month when the Hijrah (migration) of the Holy Prophet (saw) took place. But what makes it even more historic is the Martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain (ra), the beloved grandson our beloved Holy Master Hazrat Muhammad (saw) on the 10th of day of this month.

While we see many practices among the peoples of the Muslim world in terms of commemorating this sorrowful event, we should follow the guideline of Hazrat Ameerul Momineen Khalifatul-Masih V (aba) and read Darood Shareef more than we usually do. Huzoor-e-Aqdas (aba) has emphasized in his recent Friday Sermon on reciting Darood Shareef in abundance.
May Allah enable us to understand the true meaning of Darood, Ameen.
