Introduction:AHLUL- BAYT Islamic Centre, commonly known as HUSSIANIA is a purpose built NATIONAL IRISH SHI’A .......... ISLAMIC CENTRE. It is the only Shi’a .......... Islamic centre in Ireland including the Northern Ireland. Its aims and objectives are to serve the social , cultural and spritual needs of the entire Shi’a .......... population of Ireland. There are about 1000+ Shi’a .......... working, studying and living in Ireland.
Historical Background: The foundation of HUSSIANIA was laid down some time during the 1970’s by a few Shi’a .......... medical students, who came to Dublin from the Middle Eastern countries to study at the Royal College of surgeon, Dublin. These students hired a small house in the Portobello area of Dublin and then after a few years when this place was not big enough to accommodate every one, they moved to a bigger house in Rathgar. Gradually this place become known to other Shi'a .......... living and working in Ireland. After a few years later even this house was not big enough to cater for the religious and spiritual needs of Irish Shi'a .......... community. It was time to find a bigger and better space to serve properly the socio-cultural and religious needs of this small but growing Shi'a .......... community of Ireland. During the 1990’s the local Irish Shi'a .......... community decided to build a proper Shi'a .......... Islamic Center. They tapped on their own resources and constructed a purpose built enter in the Milltown area of Dublin 14. Hussainia, Ahlul-Bait Shi'a Islamic Center was officially opened in September 1996.
A full time resident Imam- Sayyed Ali Abdullah decided to return to Ireland in order to assume his official duty as a religious head of this center. He is a noble and qualified Shi’a .......... religious scholar from the highest .......... academic institution of Qum, Iran (known as Hawza ).
The Imam of this Hussainia is not only responsible for the Islamic needs of the Shi'a .......... community of Ireland but also anyone interested in the religion of ...... and Islamic world.
Activity:The center is an active and thriving Islamic institution and is open every day for the afternoon and evening prayers (salaa) it also conducts Dua Kumayal (special supplication) on every Thursday after the evening prayers. The center regularly holds lectures on various Islamic topics and issues on every Saturday from 8 PM. These lectures are open to anyone wishes to come along and are free of charge. The center offers a Friday afternoon prayer a recommended ritual through out the Islamic world. It conducts special occasion ceremonies through out the year. The Shi’a .......... Islamic calendar is full of such special occasions for example birth and death anniversaries of twelve Imams or Ahlul Bayt i.e. the family of Prophet Mohammed (p.b.u.h) and his progeny (Aimmah).
