Rizvi College Azakhana

Next year after the sad demise of marhum Maulana Ghulam Askari sahab, the founder of Tanzeemul Makatib, the majalis  of the Ashra of Moharram (1-10 moharram) was shifted from Rizvi House to Rizvi College, Carter Road, Bandra. Maulana Safi Haider was the zakir after him.
Dr. Akhtar Hasan Rizvi wished that these 10 days of the Moharram should be productive in terms of Azadaari and the matter dispensed from the Mimbar. There were many great zakirs who have adorned the Mimbar of Rizvi College. Marhum Maulana Karrar Husain sahab was one of them. He continued to read majalis for years. Later, when he accepted the invitation from Kuwait, Maulana Tasdeeq Husain Rizvi, Maulana Sharafat Husain marhum, maulana Ali Rizvan sahab and even maulana Zeeshan Haider Zaidi sahab has been the zakir at Rizvi College.
Maulana Sayyed Hasnain Kararvi was for 3 years. Then came maulana Aabid Bilgrami, who belonged to Hyderabad and was an NRI from Kuwait, used easy Urdu words and sentences and and also decorated his majlis with day to day English words and phrases. Azadaars got attracted towards him. The crowd swelled. For 4 consecutive years he has been the zakir.
Now, the audience have started whispering that the matter of the Majlis is repetitive. They want some new topics. The Internet, the FaceBook, the social networking demands solid materials. The youth discuss issues beyond belief. They want to explore social and spiritual issues. They want convincing answers to 'WHYs and HOWs'. If the zakir delivers these issues, then, he has fulfilled his duties and quenches their thirst for knowledge, and if he follows the 'Shut up, I know better than you' approach, then the audience will automatically dwindle. So, let us wait and watch what is in store for next Moharram.
Below video is the of the temporary Azakhana at Rizvi College. There are 2 of them, one in ladies section and another in gents.

Sermon of Imam Husayn (a.s.) at Karbala

At Karbala, Imam Husayn (a.s.) called for his mount and mounted it. He called out at the top of his voice:
O people of Iraq, and most of them (began to) listen to him
People, listen to my words and do not hurry (to attack me) so that I may remind you of the duties you have towards me and so that (by telling you the true circumstances) I may free myself from any blame in (your attacking me). If you give me justice, you will become happier through that. If you do not give me justice of your own accord (as individuals), then agree upon your affairs (and your associates); let not your affair be in darkness to you. Then carry (it) our against me and do not reflect (any further) [X : 71]. Indeed my guardian is God, Who created the Book, He takes care of the righteous [VII: 196]
Then he praised and glorified God, and mentioned what God is entitled to. He called for blessings on the Prophet, may God bless him and his family, and on the angels and (other) prophets. No speaker has ever been heard before or after him more eloquent in his speech than he was. He continued:
Trace back my lineage and consider who I am. Then look back at yourselves and remonstrate with yourselves. Consider whether it is right for you to kill me and to violate the honour of my womenfolk. Am I not the son of the daughter of your Prophet, of his testamentary trustee (wall) and his cousin, the first of the believers in God and the man who (first) believed in what His Apostle, may God bless him and his family, brought from his Lord? Was not Hamza, the lord of the martyrs, my uncle? Was not Ja'far, the one who flies in Heaven, my uncle? Have you not heard the words of the Apostle of God, may God bless him and his family, concerning myself and my brother: 'These are the two lords of the youths of the inhabitants of heaven'? Whether you believe what I am saying and it is the truth, for by God I have never told a lie since I learnt that God hated people (who told) them - or whether you regard me as a liar, there are among you those who, if you asked them, would tell you: Ask Jabir b. Abd Allah al-Ansari, Abu Said al-Khudri, Sahl b. Sad al-Saidi, Zayd b. Arqam and Anas b. Malik to tell you that they heard these words from the Apostle of God, may God bless him and his family, concerning myself and my brother. Is there not (sufficient) in this to prevent you shedding my blood?

'Karbala source of Shia-Sunni unity'

The Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan attended an Ashura Day ceremony in Istanbul emphasizing that the Karbala tragedy affects all Muslims and should serve as a source of unity among Sunni and Shia Muslims. 

“Hussein's sacrifice is [a] unification rather than a farewell, it is a beginning rather than an end, brotherhood rather than separation. It is solidarity and integration,” Erdogan emphasized at the ceremony, adding that the Karbala tragedy had caused all Muslims pain for more than a millennium. Full Story

Saudi Thoughts on Shias in Wikileaks Trove

The AbZ is referred to the UAE Foreign Minister" Abdullah bin Zayed."(which can be misspelled as Ibne Ziyad)
