Help bring the name of Hussain ibn Ali to the world

Updated on 12 March 2018

Three years since inception, and, by the grace of God, Who is Hussain? continues to grow. 

Last year whoishussain.org received hundreds of thousands of visitors, a figure which promises to increase over the next twelve months. Every week, individuals from outside the folds of Islam come forward to ask for more information about Hussain ibn Ali; to learn about this man of principle, of dignity, of justice.

Teams in global locations, from the shores of Australia to the South American peninsula - and dozens in between - carry out a range of goodwill initiatives in the name of Hussain ibn Ali (may peace and blessings be upon him).  Homeless drives, blood donation projects and interfaith events are put on each week, with ever-increasing crowds coming to learn about the story of Karbala.  Just this month, contributors around the world reached into their pockets to fundraise £4,500 for Save the Children's refugee support fund, demonstrating the power the name the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad has to make ripples - even centuries after his martyrdom. 

This Muharram we take another giant leap.  As humanity searches for its collective consciousness in the midst of ISIS, the refugee crisis and conflict unabated, thousands will witness the message of compassion and respect for all that resonated through Hussain ibn Ali's life.  Through targetted marketing, a revamped website and short informative videos, the legacy of Ashura will be broadcasted to individuals far and wide.    

Who is Hussain? invites you to join this movement; to inform the world about the Father of the Free.  The marketing campaigns, grassroots events, merchandise distributions and maintenance of the website all require financial resources to support.  It would be a crying shame if campaign with the purpose of spreading the message of Hussain ibn Ali was held back owing to a lack of funds. 

We therefore ask you to kindly extend the hand of support and donate.  Please do visit the link below and donate generously. It will go a long way to bringing the same of Hussain ibn Ali to the lips of thousands the world over.

We thank you in advance for your generosity.

This year, over two million people around the world will InshAllah flock to Iraq to commemorate Arbaeen. We share below reflections from one of the zawaars who will be going to Iraq this year and inshAllah undertake the walk from the Holy City of Najaf to the land of Karbala:

“In a day’s time, I’ll be leaving with a group of my family and friends, leaving behind everything familiar, to make this amazing trip to the land of my Imams (AS).

I cast my mind back remembering another time, another family who left their hometown, and everything they loved, to venture out into an unknown future. Except their fate was different. For Husayn and his family (AS), only the women and children were to return back. And this drives me on..


Marriage is highly recommended in Islam and Allah (swt) says in the Holy Qur’an (24:32):  “Marry the spouseless among you…if they are poor, God will enrich them of His bounty.”

It was a beautiful morning: Tuesday 13 August 2013 was the day we left Dubai for our summer course. That flight was pretty long for me … I was just waiting for it to land … and we finally landed in Tehran and went to Qum, then came the  moment I was waiting for— our arrival in Jamiatuz Zahra.

It was a really touching moment for me as Jamia was my dream. So every morning that I would wake up, I would look around smiling, thinking to myself, “I’m living my dream”.
