from Muharram & Aashura
Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb
is an extract from the book:
year, when the blessed month of Muharram enters,
we are reminded of certain incidents: The Hijrah,
The Day of Aashura and The Martyrdom of Sayyidina
Husain (radhiyallahu anhu). These are generally
the topics of discussion in the month of Muharram
and Insha-Allah, something will be said in respect
to each one.
the Khilafat of Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhu),
Islam had spread far and wide and there was a need
to have some kind of date for the correspondence
that was being sent out.
