Every year during Arba’een, men, women and children of all ages take part in the 80km walk from Najaf to Karbala (N2K). This is done by millions of people to commemorate and remember what the members of the Ahlulbayt (as) had to endure so many years ago. The walk typically lasts for anything between one to four days and is described by many as a ‘once in a lifetime experience’.

The World Federation’s representative to the National Council of The Muslim Council of Britain, Riyaz Dhalla, will be amongst the business women and men - professionals, community leaders, entrepreneurs and financiers, to attend the World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF) between 28 to 30 October 2014.
Held this year in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, this will be the largest delegation to the Forum outside Muslim countries.
In addition to deepening economic ties between the Muslim world and the UK, the MCB delegation will also celebrate the growing economic ties between the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates. To underscore that relationship, the British Embassy in Dubai will be hosting a reception for British delegates, where British entrepreneurs, Ministers and leading Emirati figures will be attending on 28 October.
Dr Shuja Shafi, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain said: “British Muslims have strong economic, cultural, social and religious ties to the UAE and we are delighted that in addition to business people and entrepreneurs from the UK, our delegation this year consists of many British expats in the UAE who are at the top of their professional game. Once again, we hope to demonstrate that British Muslims can help contribute to the prosperity of the United Kingdom through its links to the Muslim world.”
Allah has blessed humankind with the ability to develop complex and intelligent cultures by way of intellectual reflections, and scientific discoveries as well as spiritual achievements. Our ethnicity, heritage and culture are part of what make humans distinct from the animals.
