We are deeply saddened and disturbed by the cowardly terrorist attack in Spain, which took the lives of innocent people and left so many others injured.
Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected, especially the Paris-based family from our community, who were horrifically struck in Barcelona, whilst visiting there on holiday.
The World Federation and CoEJ, along with community leaders, are in touch with the family that were sadly affected by this incident and are assisting to accommodate their needs.
May Allah grant the family, along with everyone else, a quick and full recovery. The World Federation exists to serve, and that includes standing up against extremist ideology.
Let's pray that humanity can unite against all forms of terrorism and that there are peaceful times ahead.
Thanks to everyone’s generous support, we were able to distribute 376,750 GBP / 610,000 USD in various forms of aid including food baskets, iftaars, monetary assistance and debt relief.
If one of our Shia goes for Imam Husayn (as)’s Ziyarat, then he will not return but all his sins will be forgiven. For every step that he or his mount takes, 1,000 virtues are written for him, 1,000 sins are forgiven and his status is elevated by a 1,000 degrees.' (Bihar al-Anwar, volume 101; Kamil al-Ziyaraat)
If you have been blessed with the opportunity to go to Iraq this Arba’een and are doing the walk from Najaf to Karbala, why not help fundraise for the poor and needy at the same time?
