      Aap apni alag namaz padhen ya Frnds ke sath jamat banane ki Koshsish kijiye.yahi ulema -e-Ahle Sunnat ka faisla hai.
      Allah aapki madad farmaye.Amin

  8. Maulana Mohammad Ibrahim Khustar was the pioneer on the mission of Allah Hazrat in Mauritius, South Africa, England, Holland but to name a few countries of the world. We Muslims of Mauritius are grateful to Allah subhanahu, His/our Rassoul (sws) and this gratitude flows from the LOVE that Alla Hazrat has passed to us from among his chosen ones.

  9. As-salaamu-alaikum my name is Hafez Mohammed Rashid Joosub from ERmelo. South Africa you see 3 weeks back that’s on the second of December I went to the Masjid for Esha namaaz and after Esha namaaz there was a lecture on karbala how imaam Hussain and his family became a shaheed this lecture was givin by a tablikhie moulana. Now what we heard that yazid send his army to kufaah and we also heard that yazid instuted shimar bin joeshar to kill and head imaam Hussain and what this Moulana said in his lecture that yazid was waiting for imaam Hussain to come by him and accept him as the khalifa and he also said that yazid started regrating when shimar bin joeshar killed and beheaded imaam Hussain and he also said that having Majlis for 10 days of Muharam is not permisible he said that we are morning on the death of imaam Hussain and he said that distributing sarbit is also bidath now. What I whant to ask is that was yazid really regrating on imaam Hussains death and is majlis for 10 days of muharam permisible and distributing sarbit on the 10 day of muharam permisible please let me know the answer jazakalah as-salaamu-alaikum

    • He is just justifying a Fasik Fajir..aisa koi Proof nahin hai ki Yazeed ne rpentence zahir kia ho.He was involved in this inhuman work.What is Majlis,it is remeberance with in shariah.Of course shariah allows us to remeber him and all Ahle bait (R.A).Actually that Tablighi is Propagating his Wahabi Ideology as taught by Taimiah Wahabi and later on his associates.

      No AHle Sunnah Scholar in history has supported Yazeed and said this what this Tablighi was Saying….also
