Montreal Toheed Society offers condolences to all Muslims, especially you dear friend, upon the 25th of Muharram, the anniversary of the martyrdom of the pioneer of the lovers and the beautifier of the worshippers,Imam Ali ibn Hussain al-Sajjad (PBUH).
Listen, my friend, to the complaint of this reed;
A story of separation it tells indeed.
Ever since this reed was cut from its bed,
Every man and woman’s sorrow I spread. Rūmī, Mathnawī, vol. 1, lines 1-4
