In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
By the grace of God, we humbly present to the Imam of our time, the third issue of The Warith Magazine.
This issue addresses some important topics with articles on the connection between Imam Hussain (as) and Imam Mahdi (af) according to the traditions of the Ahl al-Bayt (as), and on Imam Hussain (as) and human dignity. Another article addresses the issue of hope in Islam according to the teachings of Imam al-Sajjad (as) in the whispered prayer of the hopeful, which is particularly relevant as depression and despair are rife in the modern world. As Sadiq school in Toronto participated in our first competition, where they asked their students from grades 7 to 12 to write letters to the Imam of our time (af) about the current plight of the world. The top three letters are published in this issue.
This issue also contains poetry and a question and answer section, which also leaves a question open for our readers to discuss at home with family and friends. An answer will be provided in the next issue God willing.
Many hands have worked together to bring the issue to fruition. I would like to thank our content contributors, editors, designers, artists and The Batool Foundation for their contributions.
