5TH ANNUAL COMBINED (SHIA-SUNNI) MAJLIS E IMAM HUSSAIN (A)
We invite all Sunni and Shia brothers to gather to be part of majlis to pay tribute to the Grandson of PROPHET MOHAMMAD (PBUH), IMAM HUSSAIN (A), and to promote peace, love, harmony, and acceptance.
What happened at the majlis?
Several religious scholars were present at the majlis. They took turns narrating the historical events that transpired in Karbala.
A great crowd of people from different religious sects came and sat down for the majlis. The incident of Karbala brought many people together on one platform.
At the end of the event, plants were distributed among the participants as a sign of faith and harmony for all.
Here are some pictures of the majlis organized by Ideas 9:
