There was a Grand Celebration of Ghadeer Anniversary last night at Zainabia Imambada. The local and outsation poets were at their best. Javed Gopalpuri from Bihar earned tremendous appreciation from the audience and was forced to repeat his magical style of recitation and high quality of poetry. Sarwar Nawab from Lucknow, Razi Biswani from Jaunpur, Khursheed Muzaffar Nagri, Nayab Balyawi and others uplifted the sensational atmosphere of this poetic feat. Dr. Shaoor Aazmi was conferred an Award in memory of late S.Ghulam Hasnain Kararvi for his contribution to Urdu literature. Mashhood Danapuri, Khurshid Hallauri, Mahdi Aazmi and others were the darling of the crowd. Compering of the function by Naseer Aazmi was at its best. Maulana Hasnain Kararvi  set the tone of the programme by his electrifying speech on Ghadeer, highlighting the final Hajj of the Holy Prophet of Islam (s.a.).
This grand function opened up with the recitation of the Holy Qur'an by Tusi Rizvi.
The occasion was right enough to  launch Urdu weekly "Hamara Waqt" by the hands of Maulana Hasnain Kararvi. Mr. Ali Abbas is the editor of this weekly.
The Wilayati crowd enjoyed the Chicken Burger and the aroma filled Tea. It all ended at 6.00 AM.
Below are some of the photographs of the Ghadeer function.

Today, Day of Arafah, the Day of Repentance

The day of Arafah is the ninth day of Dhul Hijjah and is one of the most sacred days of the Islamic Calendar. On this day Allah invites his servants towards his worship and obedience, and spreads his bounties and blessings.
It is highly recommended to be on this day in Karbala, Iraq. The presence over there carries a great reward. After the downfall of the tyrant Saddam, the pilgrims gather in Karbala on this day and outnumber the Haajis in Arafat at Hajj. There are above 5 million visitors at Karbala pouring from all over the world, while in Makkah there are 2 to 3 millions.
There are different a'maal to be performed on this particular day. Dua of Imam Husain (a.s.) known as Dua Arafah and Dua of Imam Zainul Aabidin (a.s.) are the important Duas to be recited. The theme of these duas is the forgiveness of the sins from Allah. It is the day of repentance.
Imam Zaynul Aabidin (a.s.) says about this great day: "O God, this is the day of Arafah a day which you have made noble, given honor and magnified within it. You have spread your mercy, showed kindness through your pardon, made plentiful your giving and by it you have been gracious towards your servants." (Sahifa as-Sajjadiyyah, Du'a no. 47)
It is also narrated that once Imam saw a man begging from people on the day of Arafah. He said "Woe unto you that on a day like this you are asking from other than God. This is a day when the mercy and grace of Allah reaches (even) the fetus in the womb."
In Mumbai City the congregational A'maal is organised at various places. seeking forgiveness from All-Merciful Almighty Allah.
