‘Azmat-o-Falsafa-e-Shahadat Imam Hussain (AS)’, a lecture by Shaykh-ul-Islam, was shown to the audience in which he explained how the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (AS) had a lasting impact that delineated line between truth and falsehood. The Prophet’s (pbuh) saying ‘I am from Hussain and Hussain is from me’, was beautifully explained by Shaykh-ul-Islam in this lecture and it was heart-warming to see the audience listening attentively to the lecture as well.
Mrs. Shabana Sarshad Ali shared some words of wisdom with the audience after the lecture, including various Ahadeeth and life lessons for the audience to implement in their daily lives.
