It is one of the four sacred months with a number of historic events. Believers are highly encouraged to put more efforts in worship with a view to acquiring the pleasure of Allah the Most High, however we use to celebrate the birthday of the apostle of Allah (SAWA), Sayyada Zahra (SA), Imam Ali (AS), Imam Hasan (AS), imam Husain (AS) and Imam Mahdi (AS) among other Ahlulbayt (AHS) in a big way (fully) but the rest rejoice and share some mints’’ He noted. In this year’s Maulud of Imam Ridah we were blessed with visitors from Mash-had of imam Ridah (As) whom came along with different gifts that include the Flag that had been hosted at Mash-had.
He also elaborate on how flags will be change at Husainiyya Baqiyyatullah periodically, by the every 1st Muharram, insha Allah we will hoist the flag of Imam Husain from Karbala (black) which will change the one we hosted today, also insha Allah by 1st Rabiul Awwal a red flag will substitute the Black, we hope all the flags hosting will insha Allah be annually.
