Shia attacked in Karbala, 12 Martyred


A rocket attack has claimed several lives in the Iraqi shrine city of Karbala as the capital Baghdad witnessed more deadly bombings.
"Several mortars landed at 11:00 p.m. (0800 GMT ) on Tuesday, killing seven pilgrims and injuring 46, in a neighborhood a few kilometers northwest of the center of the city," AFP quoted a Karbala police officer as saying on  Wednesday.
The shells targeted Shia pilgrims who were coming from around the city to participate in the ceremony marking the birthday of Imam Mahdi -- the 12th Shia imam.
The mortar explosions also ripped through a number of nearby houses in the northwest of Karbala, which hosts the holy shrine of Imam Hossein's shrine -- the third Shia imam.
Meanwhile, a bomb detonated inside a restaurant at around 9:30 a.m. (0630 GMT) on Wednesday in Baghdad's northern neighborhood of Sadr City, killing five people.
A woman was among the victims of the blast which injured 13 more people, said officials from the defense and interior ministries who were speaking on condition of anonymity.
Meaning literally the mid-Shaaban visit, the al-Ziyara al-Shaabaniya is a pilgrimage to revive the memory of the birth of the Messiah-like Imam al-Mahdi, the 12th holiest figure for Shiites Muslims.
Karbala, with an estimated population of 572,300 people in 2003, is considered to be one of Shiite Muslims’ holiest cities.
The city, 110 km southwest of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, is one of Iraq’s wealthiest, profiting both from religious visitors and agricultural produce, especially dates.
Meanwhile A bomb has detonated inside a restaurant in the north of the Iraqi capital, leaving five people killed and more than a dozen others wounded.
The explosion happened at around 9:30 a.m. (0630 GMT) on Wednesday in Baghdad's Sadr city, AFP reported.
A woman was among the victims of the blast which injured 13 more people, said officials from the defense and interior ministries who were speaking on condition of anonymity.
It is made up of two districts, “Old Karbala,” the religious centre, and “New Karbala,” the residential district containing Islamic schools and government buildings.
At the center of the old city is al-Masjid al-Husseini, the tomb of Imam Hussein Ibn Ali, grandson of the Prophet Muhammad by his daughter Fatima al-Zahraa and Ali Ibn Abi Taleb.
Imam Hussein’s tomb is a place of pilgrimage for many Shiite Muslims. Many elderly pilgrims travel there to await death, as they believe the tomb to be one of the gates to paradise.

Al'ajal al'ajal al'ajal ' al'ajal. ya sultan e zamna al'ajal

Wiladat-e-Imam-e-Zamana Mubrak....


to All Momneens....


Mola Aap ki her murad puri karen (aamen).


-Shia Azadari



The Day of the Oppressed People of the World

Allah has promised the righteously striving believers to appoint them as His deputies on earth, as He had appointed those who lived before. He will make the religion that He has chosen for them to stand supreme. He will replace their fear with peace and security. They will worship their Lord without fear and will not submit to anyone other than Him and will associate nothing with His worship and obedience
.(Al-Quran: Chapter al-Noor, 24:55) 

We would like to congratulate our beloved Prophet Mohammad (p.b.u.h), Imams (a.s), the Leader of the Islamic movement, respected jurisprudents and all Muslims on the occasion of the birth of Imam Mahdi (a.s.). 
The appearance of the Imam Mahdi (a.s) is Allah's favour for the oppressed and the weak, and is a means of their coming to power and gaining the promised divine succession of  the world. The holy Qur'an says "We have decided to grant favour to the suppressed ones by appointing them leaders and heirs of the earth", (Al-Quran: Chapter al-Qasas, 28:5).  The appearance of the Imam Mahdi (a.s) means the realization of the promise Allah made to the righteous in the Holy Quran. "Verily we have written in the Psalms (zaboor) after the Torah had been revealed: My righteous servants shall inherit the earth. (Al-Quran: Chapter al-Anbia, 21:105) 
 
This auspicious occasion surely revives our hopes for a better future ahead when the Imam (a.s.) reappears from the occultation. Additionally, it is a special reminder to those suffering under oppression and tyranny that resistance and resilience in the face of injustice will only serve them in the long-haul. The belief in Imam Mahdi (a.s.) is a manifestation for global community that the battle between truth and falsehood will culminate in favour of forces of truth once the Promised one returns.

The continuation of the occultation of Imam (a.s) is meant to preserve the vigilance and advance the cause of justice. It is important that as part of our waiting of Imam, we persistently oppose all bullying powers (global, domestic, secular, religious or in any other shape, form or disguise), and remain steadfast during adversarial times. The global dominance of few arrogant and oppressive powers has yielded 2 billion starved people across the globe, millions displaced due to warmongering policies and majority of nations subservient. In such circumstances, the silver lining is the belief in the eventual global just governance of the ultimate saviour. It convinces human beings that the world status quo must be denounced and wait for a turnabout in the living conditions of the humanity at large. Hence, it is imperative and incumbent upon the well-wishers and followers of Imam Mahdi (a.s) to lay the groundwork necessary for his return in addition to the prayers.

Imam-e-Zamana's letter to the fourth Naib-e-Imam Hazrat Muhammad bin Ali Samri



Imam-e-Zamana (AS) termed this letter as an amanat with those who read it, and asked them to spread this message to other momineen.

It is Imam-e-Zamana's (AS) letter to the fourth Naib-e-Imam Hazrat Muhammad bin Ali Samri (RA), in which Imam-e-Zamana (AS) refuted the beliefs of Ghali's.

It is our duty as per Imam-e-Zamana's (AS) order to spread this message and refute the beliefs of the present Ghali's (like Ghazanfer Taunsavi, Tajir uddin, Fazil Alvi, Abdul Hakeem, Mohsin Naqvi, Irfan Haider Abidi, Shaukat Raza Shaukat, etc)

Senior CNN editor sacked for praising the late Shiite cleric

New York, Jul 8-  A senior editor with the CNN has been sacked for praising the late Shiite cleric Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah on Twitter.

Octavia Nasr, a senior Middle East editor, was fired after she expressed her respect for the late Islamist Hezbollah leader Fadlallah, who figured on a US terrorist list.

Sad to hear of the passing of Sayyed Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah...one of Hezbollah giants I respect a lot, the tweet said.

Parisa Khosravi, the senior vice president of international news gathering for CNN Worldwide, said in an internal memo that after speaking with Nasr we have decided that she will be leaving the company.

At this point, we believe that her credibility in her position as senior editor for Middle Eastern affairs has been compromised going forward, said Khosarvi.

Fadlallah was a Hezbollah cleric and the organisation is considered a terrorist group by the United States.

Nasr later apologised for what she had written.

Reaction to my tweet was immediate, overwhelming and a provides a good lesson on why 140 characters should not be used to comment on controversial or sensitive issues, especially those dealing with the Middle East, Nasr said in a blogpost.

It was an error of judgment for me to write such a simplistic comment and I'm sorry because it conveyed that I supported Fadlallah's life's work. That's not the case at all, said Nasr, who joined CNN in 1990.

Nasr also explained that she used the word respect because Fadlallah took a contrarian and pioneering stand among Shia clerics on woman's rights.

He called for the abolition of the tribal system of honour killing. He called the practice primitive and non-productive. He warned Muslim men that abuse of women was against Islam, she said.

Shiite cleric Fadlallah dies

Lebanon's top Shiite cleric and influential sheik has died after an illness. He was 75.


An official at Behnam hospital south of Beirut, where Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah was being treated, confirmed his death today. He spoke on condition of anonymity, pending an official announcement.

Fadlallah's media office didn't confirm the statement but says an important announcement is being prepared.

Fadlallah was in hospital for the past two weeks but his condition deteriorated on Friday when complications from a liver problem led to an internal hemorrhage.

The Iraqi-born Fadlallah has followings in Lebanon and Iraq. He was described as a spiritual leader of the militant Hezbollah, a claim both he and the group denied.
