In the Name of Allah the Compassionate the Merciful
Imam Mahdi’s Great Birthday Anniversary
Congratulations on the birthday anniversary of Imam Mahdi (May the Almighty Allah advent his return) who is our live Imam. Such a birthday has been concurrent with a great day which has been appreciated since the time of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HF), and thus, has added to the value of this day. Further to celebrating this event which is a must for a true Shia, some other activities have been recommended by Ahl al-Bait as well, which includes full ablution (qasal), vigil and visiting Imam Hussain (PBUH) or reciting Ziaarat Ashuraa. Further items have been well mentioned in Mafaatih ul-Jinaan. The night of 15th of Sha’baan is a special night as well, as Imam Sadiq (PBUH) has narrated from his father, Imam Baqir (PBUH), that such night is the greatest after the Night of Qadr, and great Mersey of the Almighty Allah will be flowing.
Now, just imagine we are approaching to such a birthday; birthday of a person who is the reason of life, who is the connection between the Almighty Allah and anything else, who is God’s only survivor, who is our only saviour, who is the only infallible in the Universe, and many others… So, what is our duty for his birthday anniversary?
Our Shia lovely friends in Liverpool have worked hard to arrange for a memorable programme at Liverpool Towhid Centre. The event will be celebrated on the birthday anniversary of Imam Mahdi (PBUH), Tuesday, 27 July 2010. The programme starts at 8 pm with a ziaarat (probably Aali Yaasin) followed by lecture, mowludi, group prayers and supper, ending at 10.30 pm. The venue of the programme is as follows.
