MQI Nottingham Brother Akmal Hussain welcomed the guests and spoke about Shaykh-ul-Islam’s unforgettable contribution for the Muslim Ummah. He said in the last half century whenever the Ummah needed guidance and answers of the most critical questions Shaykh-ul-Islam gave a solution.

This was followed by the speech given by our honourable guest Allama Syed Ali Abbas Bukhari in which he spoke about Karbla. He said that this is an unforgettable occasion in the history of Islam. Every martyr is honoured in the sight of Allah SWT, but the special place given to Imam Hussain (AS) no martyr can get because this sacrifice was the sacrifice rendered for Islam.
