unnamed 1691016718

On Ashura, a day of profound historical significance, conflicting narratives are weaved, painting a complex portrait of sacrifice and striving. Sunnis rely on authentic traditions that the Day of Ashura is about delivering the Hebrews from Pharaoh's tyranny. Shias only see the significance of the day through the lens of the heinous assassination of Imam Hussein. How do these diverse perspectives shape our understanding of the past and chart our path towards the future of the Ummah? As we navigate this intricate web of perspectives, we attempt to find a way out. Is it possible for conflicting narratives to coexist?  Join us for Jumaa this Friday to delve deeper into the rich tapestry of Ashura's competing narratives and explore the timeless lessons they hold.
