As the Dawoodi Bohra community of Karachi anticipated to hear Dr. Syedna Aali Qadar Mufaddal Saifuddin Maula TUS stating that ‘the Asharah Mubarakah 1439 will be held in Karachi’, the hearts wept as the news flowed to every masajid at 12 noon today, from Saifee Masjid Mumbai.
We, the mumineen of Pakistan have waited for 21 years and stayed strong to await His Holiness to do zikr of Imam Husain A.S in our country, and have waited to see Him shed His tears that would bring life to the once barren land; the land which has cried in thirst for two decades to hear the Noorani Zikr.
The clock ticks by and the Azaan is called out reminding each of us we must fasten our seat belts to welcome thousands of Mumineen and get ready for the ten days of Shehre Moharram ul Haram.
As it’s a historic occasion for Pakistan and for the Dawoodi Bohra community, I request each Pakistani and every Karachite on the behalf of the members of my community residing here that being citizens of Islamic Republic of Pakistan we will spread the good light of our country that has been shadowed by social media and news stories. Let us show the might we have, the pride we have and the love we have to our home.
And, because it’s a global event, foreigners will travel from different parts of the world to hear the martyrdom of Imam Husain A.S, so we being loyal and honest inhabitants will prove the news of terrorism wrong and show our true identity of peace loving people to them.
Thankful to you,
