Join Presenter Rebecca Masterton & her guest as they discuss lessons that we can learn from Imam Hussain, Abu Fadhil Abbas & Imam Sajjad. 

Idd al-Mab'ath: The Greatest Ever Day
Mab'ath, signifies resurgence and is the most important day on which the sun has ever shone. It is the resurgence of not just humanitarian values but the basic purpose of life and the goal towards which mankind is moving. Hence it is more significant than the creation of Adam and the start of the human race. . .

'Read, in the name of your Lord!'
The emphasis on literacy that began with the Prophet continued with the classical scholars, who saw writing as the foremost means of preserving and transmitting knowledge. This is reflected in the fact that major Islamic centres of learning, such as the Dar al-Hikma in Abbasid Baghdad, began collecting, translating and copying manuscripts on a near-industrial scale. . .

A Season for the Soul - Month of Sha'ban - Realising Hope
The Prophet has been quoted as saying, "It (Sha'ban) is a distinguished month and it is my is a month in which sustenance for the Believers is increased and it is the month of performing deeds. . ."

Words of Wisdom

  22 Sha`aban 1437

One who assents or subscribes to the actions of a group or a party is as good as having committed the deed himself. A man who joins a sinful deed makes himself responsible for two-fold punishments, one for doing the deed and the other for assenting and subscribing to it.  Imam Ali (a.s.)
