Ashura Message of The Year 1440 A.H.

In the Name of God, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful

Peace and blessings be upon His Chosen One, the Prophet Muhammad, and his pure and immaculate progeny.

We* had the honor of visiting the Grand Marji’ Ayatullah al-Sayyid al-Sistani (May God keep his noble shade over us) on Thursday, 11th Dhil-Hijjah 1439. We requested him to give some fatherly advice to us and the preachers and lecturers speaking from the Husayni pulpit, considering the imminent arrival of the month of Muharram. He graced us with the following illuminating words of guidance, full of care, attention and ardor in shielding the religion, and protecting the status of the Husayni pulpit in delivering its most serious message. In giving his advice, he (may God keep his noble shade over us) presented two main points:

The first point was on the role of the Husayni pulpit, especially in the days of Muharram. He advised that the message of the pulpit can be summarized as being – besides the recitation of the tribulations of the holy Household – the propagation of religion and embedding it in the minds and hearts of the Muslims, through the delivery of the teachings of the Quran, and the alleviation of misconceptions and doubts using strong and convincing proofs, and the nurturing of the believers to the path of piety, virtue and exemplary values.

Fostering Education

Education is embedded in almost every project we support especially in our growing communities in Africa. However, the enfranchisement of our students to pioneer in education and be supported in a way where they can focus on their studies to become the experts of their fields – that is distinct and must be highlighted.

Strengthening Faith

Our Muslim communities need programmes and projects which help strengthen their identity in faith in a meaningful way. The Foundation has concentrated on pinpointing strategic partners and organisations that can host creative programmes that engage our communities in the present while connecting them to their heritage, history, and tradition.

Developing Communities

The Mainstay Foundation has provided logistical and financial support to humanitarian organisations in Africa & the Middle east. Such support has included financial sponsorship programmes for those living in poverty, in addition to ready access to healthcare for those who can’t afford it.

The Mainstay Foundation’s commitment to community development, has seen it deliver several grants to charity’s within Iraq, whose beneficiaries include Orphans and their carers suffering from financial difficulty, in addition to those suffering from illness or a lack of adequate healthcare. These grants in turn have provided orphans and their carers with some of the financial support required to counter the effects of poverty, that includes limited access to healthcare, hunger and more generally a lack of basic needs.
