    Meeting started at 11:15am by the recitation of Quran by Maulana Jafar Ali Najm. General Secretary,

    Maulana Azmat Abbas Zohairi requested to recite Surah Fatiha for the esale thawab of following mar-

    homeen, Late wife of Maulana Yaqoob Malik, Late mother of Maulana Moazzam Ali Aoun and sister of

    mother in law Maulana Arshad Turabi. President, Maulana Syed Ali Raza Rizvi said that after the elec-

    tion, we divided our 2 years term in 4 phases. First 6 months term was for expansion and establishing

    organisational network. It is difficult job to establish an active organisational set up, planning and lead-

    ing a nation. There was a communication gap between leadership and our people. It was a difficult task

    to visit 70 centres which are members institutions of MUS. Central Cabinet divided the country in 5

    zones. Annual Wali Asr convention was held on 30th June in Markaz e Ahlebait, Clapham , London. After

    that successful event, central cabinet decided to organise zones conventions.

    Ive chosen a statement from the final will of Ali ibn Abi Talib. Where he

    says I make A will to all of my sons. first of all he addresses imam Hassan

    and Imam Hussain who Stand out from all of his sons then he says not only

    Hassan and Hussain but all of my children, but not only my children, all of

    my followers, but then not only my followers but whoever Hears my words

    and for whoever wants to follow me , fear Allah SWT have Taqwa Become a

    Pious person and secondly be organised in your affairs.

    and pilgrimage to the House is incumbent upon men for the sake of Allah, (upon) every one who is able to undertake the journey to it; and whoever disbelieves, then surely Allah is Self-sufficient, above any need of the

    worlds. Surah 3 Verse 97

    ) : .)

    It has been narrated from al-Ridha [Imam Ali Ibn Musa] (peace be upon him) that he said, I have not seen a single thing which makes a person free from want (financially secure) quicker, nor which is more effective in removing poverty, than continuously performing the Hajj (year after year). Biharul Anwar, Volume 74, Page 318

    .( : )

    It has been narrated form Abi Abdillah [Imam Jafar Ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq] (peace be upon him) that he said, A person who dies while proceeding towards Makkah or while returning back (from Makkah) will be protected from the great distress of the Day of Resurrection. Maladhul Akhyar, Volume 7, Page 223

    Timing of Hajj

    Hajj is the Holy Pilgrimage to Mecca in Islam, an obligation that must be carried out by every able-bodied Muslim who can afford to do so, at least once in their life. It is the demonstration of the solidarity of the Muslim, and their submission to Allah. Hajj occurs from the 8th to the 12th day of Dhul Hijjah, the 12th month of the Islamic calendar. This date cannot be aligned directly with Western calendars, but in the early 21st century, it occurs roughly in the November-January timeframe.

    Hajj and Umrah

    Hajj is performed because Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) performed Hajj, but the ritual was considered ancient even in the time of the Prophet, in the 7th century, and many believe that it goes back to the time of Abraham in 2000 BC. Pilgrims would join processions of tens of thousands of people, who would simultaneously converge on Mecca for the week of the Hajj, and perform a series of rituals. Each person would walk counter-clockwise seven times about the Kaaba, kiss the Black Stone, run back and forth be-tween the hills of Al-Safa and Al-Marwah, drink from the Zamzam Well, go to the plains of Mount Arafat to stand in vigil, then proceed to Muzdalifah to gather pebbles, which they would throw at a rock in Mi-na to perform the ritual of the Stoning of the Devil. The pilgrims would then shave their heads, perform an animal sacrifice, and celebrate the three day global festival of Eid ul-Adha.

    Pilgrims can also go to Mecca to perform the rituals at other times of the year. This is sometimes called the lesser pilgrimage, or Umrah. However, even if they perform the Umrah, they are still obligated to perform the Hajj at some other point in their lifetime.

    Completion Of Islam - The Announcement Of Wilayat and Imammat


    Messenger! deliver what has been revealed to you from your Lord; and if you do it not, then you have not delivered His message, and Allah will protect you from the people; surely Allah will not guide the un-

    believing people. Surah 5 Verse 67

    When this Ayat was revealed from Hazart Jabraeel to the Prophet (SAWW) from Allah (S ) The Prophet held a gathering at the land of Khumm e Ghadeer, after the Khutbah he held the arm of Imam Ali (AS)

    and said

    Whomsoever's master (maula) I am, Ali is also his (maula) master. O' God, love those who love him, and be hostile to those who are hostile to him.

    After the message of Allah was delivered to Ummah te Muhammadiya, and Imam Ali (AS) became the Imam and the Caliphatullah and Caliphatulrasool, Hazart Jibraeel descended down once again delivering

    the second message, which came in the form of this ayat:

    This day have I perfected for you your religion and completed My favour on you and chosen for you Is-lam as a religion Surah 5 Verse 3

    Eid al-Ghadeer is a festive day on the 18th of Dhu al-Hijjah in the Islamic calendar to commemorate the appointment of Imam Ali (AS) by the Islamic Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as his immediate successor. It marks the anniversary of Muhammad's sermon, described in Hadith of the Pond of Khumm in which he
