Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin to conduct Moharram sermons in Karachi

This story was reported in THE NEWS and Biz Today.

His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, the leader of the Dawoodi Bohra community has chosen Karachi as the venue for the annual 10-day Moharram congregations—known as Ashara Mubaraka in the community—held at the beginning of the Islamic year 1446H.

The Government of Pakistan and the Dawoodi Bohra community in Pakistan extended an official invitation to His Holiness earlier this month to conduct Ashara Mubaraka sermons in the country.
Ashara Mubaraka is a period of ten days dedicated to remembering Prophet Muhammad (SAW), his grandson Imam Husain, and his family and companions. This period honours their valorous stand for the universal values of justice, truth and humanity.

Speaking on the arrangements made, Shabbir Harianawala, a coordinator from the Karachi Dawoodi Bohra community said: “Over 80,000 Dawoodi Bohras from Pakistan and overseas are expected to attend the Ashara Mubaraka congregation.”

“We are working closely with government authorities and local organisations including neighbours to ensure that our guests are taken care of in the best possible manner during their stay in Karachi. Our aim is to provide a welcoming and comfortable environment for all attendees.”

The last time the international Ashara Mubaraka congregation in Karachi was led by His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin in 2017.
