first
they killed
ali in a mosque
his message
they misunderstood
main ilm ka shaer hoon
ali ilm ka darwaza hai
a thought of the holy one
far too good than they
killed his favorite grandson
at karbala the eunuchs
of yazid stood their like wood
today history repeats
itself muslims love killing
muslims plunder destroy
peace and brotherhood
the missing healing touch
as the poor muslim begs
misplaced martyrdom
misplaced jehad
does no good

The Shia Chennais it is my humble view prefer Zakirs from Northern India but I found this son of Chennai soil Dr Abbas Ali Mir a powerful orator and to the point , his majlis made the human hearts cry.

I was lucky that when I came to Chennai I knew no one save Meesaq only through the internet , but than on my arrival I met a lot of Shias , and than I was introduced to Dr Abbas Ali Mir I stayed at his house savored his hospitality . he showed me parts of Shia Chennai.

He took me to Jigedevi Ag Matam and was a great guide and friend .. I owe a lot to him.

And because he is not net savvy I dont think he will read what I have written about him..

Thank you Dr Abbas Ali Mir .. Sada Khush Raho Mere Dost ..Best wishes to your Mother.

Dr Abbas Ali Mirs father the noted teacher Ali Master died on Eid e Ghadeer .

Grave of Late Actress Meena Kumari Rehmatabad Shia Cemetery

Fatiah for the poetic soul of late meena kumari

Fatiah for the poetic soul of late meena kumari, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Meena Kumari (1 August 1932 – 31 March 1972), born Mahjabeen Bano, was an Indian movie actress and poetess. She is regarded as one of the most prominent actresses to have appeared on the screens of Hindi Cinema. During a career spanning 30 years from her childhood to her death, she starred in more than ninety films, many of which have achieved classic and cult status today.
Kumari gained a reputation for playing grief-stricken and tragic roles, and her performances have been praised and reminisced throughout the years. Like one of her best-known roles, Chhoti Bahu, in Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam (1962), Kumari became addicted to alcohol. Her life and prosperous career were marred by heavy drinking, troubled relationships, an ensuing deteriorating health, and her death from liver cirrhosis in 1972.
Kumari is often cited by media and literary sources as "…

Rehmatabad Shia Iranian Cemetery Mazgaon Mumbai

Rehmatabad Shia Iranian Cemetery Mazgaon Mumbai, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
I just shot these randomly , but sadly our cemetery does not have the neatness of the Khoja Shia cemetery Arambagh , maybe because of lack of funds the Khoja community is much financially sound and more organized than us.. this is my personal view .

Our cemetery is very small cramped up for space ,but over all it is quiet even on a burial day, but you wont find breathing space if you come on Chehlum and to some extent on Ashura.

Ashura most of the Shias go to their hometown but Chehlum 40 day of Imam Hussains Martyrdom or Arbaeen they return and the crowds are in lacs .

And I have shot the Chehlum Ashura here and once Shabarat the Shia All Souls day.

On of the graves here is of scholar Joe Ansari.. his wife used to come and recite fatiah here , he stayed at Daulat bldg Colaba I think bang opposite my primary school Private European School .. near Usha Sadan.
