From the Publisher

Al-Qanduzi, the Hanafite narrator of traditions, in his radiant collection Yanabi’ al-Mawadda (lit. Fountains of Constant Love) narrates a tradition from Abu Dharr al-Ghiffari who narrates from the Holy Prophet (s):
‘The similitude of my progeny among you is that of the ship of Noah (‘a); whosoever boards it is saved, and whosoever lags behind would perish’
The ship of al-Husayn (‘a), however, according to another tradition is more rapid: Once a companion of Imam al-Sadiq (‘a) asked him about the prophetic tradition
“Surely al-Husayn is the lamp of guidance and the ship of salvation” saying: “Aren’t you [the Ahl al-Bayt (‘a)] ships of salvation [too]?” The Imam (‘a) replied:
“All of us are ships of salvation, save that the ship of al-Husayn (‘a) is more spacious and faster.

With this in mind, the book ‘The Sacred Effusion’ authored by Sh Muhammed Khalfan gives an insight into Ziyarat e Ashura, which is a salutation presented to the master of the martyrs- Imam Hussayn (a.s)
This book, is very well written and provides a deep understanding of the ziyarah and if put into practice can establish a deep connection with the Imam (a.s)
The late mystic-scholar Ayatullah Mirza Tabrizi in his monumental prayer manual al- Muraqabat says:
‘It should be known that the door of al-Husayn (‘a) is the door of comprehensive mercy, rapid response and approval....’
A must read for anyone who wants to enjoy the spiritual bounties provided by Imam al Hussayn (a.s)

Brother Ali Spits Divine Flows On 'Never Learn'

Brother Ali is a prophet, plain and simple. Even if you're unmoved by his life story — being a legally-blind albino rejected by society who found identity through hip-hop and the Muslim faith — his music most certainly will move you. And on the second single from his forthcoming album, All the Beauty in This Whole Life, he flexes his own divine prowess. "Never Learn" finds Ali contemplating spiritual manifestation with an ounce of metaphysical swag. Like the song, the video, directed by Kron, is a beautiful testament. It was shot at Dar Al Islam, a Muslim-built worship and healing center in Ne

A Great Neighbor

On Friday, Nov. 25, Justin Normand woke up ready to take a stand. Infuriated by reports of hate crimes against Muslims and calls to ban them from immigrating to the U.S., the manager of a Dallas sign shop decided to do what he does best—he made a sign: “You Belong. Stay Strong. Be Blessed. We Are One America.” Then he drove to the nearby Islamic Center of Irving, stood in front of the center’s mosque and held it up. “At first people driving into the center had scowls on their faces,” says Normand, 53. “Then I’d see a change wash over them as they saw the message, and I’d see tears in their eye

A Letter To The President

Dear President Trump, REPRESENTING THE U.S. IN THE OLYMPIC GAMES WAS the greatest honor of my life. I will never forget walking into the opening ceremony behind our American flag that I revere, surrounded by my teammates, each drawn from different sports, many of different faiths and various ethnicities. Yet in that diversity was America itself: united by love for our country. My story is a quintessentially small-town American story. In my hometown, Maplewood, N.J., the question was always which sport I would play instead of why a girl would play one. My point isn’t really about sport, it’s
