Shias on social media faced a mini-viral syndrome following the death of King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz Aal e Saud of Saudi Arabia. Traditions predicting that the time of the Re-Appearance of our Imam (atfs) were being posted, liked, shared and re-tweeted everywhere.
The Islamic Education Department of The World Federation recently published 3 books on the request of Sheikh Mahmood Fayyaz’s Najaf Office. The titles of these books are as follows:
1) Learning Beliefs [Amoozish-e-Aqaed]
2) Learning (Islamic) Rulings [Amoozish-e-Ahkaam]
3) Learning Ethical and Social Behaviour [Amoozish-e-Akhlaq wa Raftar-e-Ijtemayee]
The books are written by Muhammad Jawad Burhani, a teacher in Islamic Seminary & University of Qum and were mainly published for Shiites of Afghanistan.
Sheikh Kumail Rajani, Head of Islamic Education of World Federation, had this to say about publications: “It has always been a pleasure help the Shia’s in different parts of the world. We hope that these books will be used to teach children in madrasas of Afghanistan and help them to better understand the foundations of our faith.”
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.

After visiting 2 holy shrines, we visited the shrine of Bibi Shatita. She was highly respected highly by the 7th Imam, and in fact her funeral prayers were led by him.
