Nawha CD’s for Aza-e-Moharram 1429/2008

Imam Jaffer Sadiq (a.s.) said, ""There is none who recites poetry about Husain (a.s.) and weeps and makes others weep by means of it, except that Allah makes Paradise incumbent upon him and forgives his sins." (Rijal al‑Shaikh al‑ Tusi pg. 189). This email is about three vibrant young Nawha Khwaans from the UK namely Husein Virji of Stanmore and Shabbir & Abbas Tejani of Peterborough, UK, who have recently completed the recording of their Nawha CD's for Moharram 1429. Husein, Shabbir and Abbas were all born in the UK and have been reciting nawhas, marthiyas, munaajaats and qasidas since the age of five. They have been invited all over the UK, as well as Europe, North America and Africa, to recite. They are now in their early twenties and seasoned nawha khwaans, and their reciting ability is on par with most of the renowned international reciters. These three boys are still at university but their love for the Ahlul Bayt (a.s.) has kept the fire of Azadari burning in their hearts and they are carrying forward the torch of Azadari as they recite the eulogies of the King of Martyrs, Hussain ibn Ali ( a.s.). They are the role models for our young children who aspire to become our reciters of tomorrow. The release date for the CD's is 5th January 2008. Husein's CD is entitled "Ye Gham Hussain Ka" and Shabbir & Abbas's CD is entitled "Seyyda Fatema". The nawhas have been professionally recorded in a studio in England, and are of the highest quality in all aspects; sound/recording quality, words and vocals. The nawhas will be aired on satellite TV during Moharram. Nawhas and marthiyas are an integral part of the azadari of Imam Hussain (a.s.) and it is this institution of Azadari that inspires our lives and infuses our souls with the essence of Imam Hussain's ( a.s.) mission. We need to actively promote, maintain and enhance the spirirt of azadari within our youth today. These CD's will be available from and and in many Shia centres and mosques worldwide during Moharram/Safar 1429.
