I was highly delighted when I was given the opportunity to mentor the youth of our community for 4 days, which eventually turned out to be the most productive days of my life!

The popular book series entitled 180 Questions – Enquiries about Islam has become a household name for its unique quality of expounding on important matters in a simple and clear language that can be understood by young and old, scholar and layman.
This series will, in its course, cover 180 questions that have been specifically picked, mainly from the famous Tasfir e Namuneh by Ayatullah Makarim Shirazi, for their relevance to the needs of the community today. The first volume (available both in hard copy and as an e-book on The World Federation website) was extremely well-received and thus, we have launched the second volume online as well.
Available in both .ePub and .MOBI formats, the second volume includes questions that deal with eschatology, aqa’id (beliefs), evolution, common superstitions and historical misconceptions that affect the School of Tashayyu. It is necessary for every person living in the 21st Century to be aware of these questions and know their answers, not only in order to be able to explain Islam and the teachings of the Ahlul Bayt (a) to others, but also to better understand the foundations of their own faith.
The birthday of Holy Prophet (PBUH) & Imam Jaffer Sadiq (a.s.) was commemorated at Dar al-Zahra. Addressed by Sheikh Amin Rastani, the program started with recitation of Holy Quran & Manqabat.
Emphasizing on the importance of "Week of unity among Shias and Sunnis", Sheikh stated that such events play a vital role in bringing the Muslims closer to each other
During the Holy month of Muharram, we will remember the sacrifices made by Imam Hussain (as) and the Ahl al-Bayt, at a tragic battle in Karbala.
To increase our awareness around Muharram and the valuable teachings left behind by Imam Hussain (as), there will be a series of lectures for the first 12 days of Muharram hosted by The World Federation Regional Bodies.
