Last Saturday, on 25th Moharram (01st Jan 2011) a Juloos (procession) was taken out at Kherwadi, Bandra east, Mumbai to commemorate the martyrdom our beloved 4th Imam, Imam Zainul Aabedeen (a.s.).
The Programme started with Namaaz of Maghrib under the Imamat of Maulana Zeeshan Haider Zaidi and later a Majlis by him. This was the 36th year of Juloos organised by Anjuman-e-Faroghe Islam. Several Maatami Anjumans of the city recited nauhas in this procession. Shabeeh of Zuljanaah, Tabut and Alam were also the part of the juloos. The juloos ended at Husaini Chowk (Behram Naka).
There was a concluding programme at the chowk. Qaari Tusi Rizvi started it by reciting some Ayaat from holy Qur'an followed by poets giving their poems on Imam Husain (a.s.) and Imam Sajjad (a.s.). Maulana Zaheer Rizvi was the announcer.
Majlis was addressed by Hojjatul Islam Maulana Sayed Hasnain Kararvi. He talked about the New Year bid'at, grief of holy Prophet of Islam (s.a.) on Imam Husain (a.s.) and Umme Habiba's lamentation on the martyrdom of Imam Husain (a.s.) in Karbala.
The atmosphere was charged with 'Naara-e-Takbir, Naara-e-Risalat, Naarae Haideri and Naara-e-Salawaat.
Below are some of the photographs of the procession.
