Shia Muslims are celebrating the birth anniversary of Imam Mehdi, the 12th infallible Imam of Shia Islam that is known as saviour of the humanity and Messiah and is also revered among almost all religions across the world under different names and titles such as Messiah or saviours.
Pakistan-based Shia Muslims also mark celebrations to commemorate the birthday of divine saviour (Messiah) . Special prayers were offered and Shia localities were decorated like bridegroom.
Shia areas, houses, streets, mosques and Imam Bargahs have been illuminated since last night. Religious scholars have spoken on the mission of Imam Mehdi (AS). Poets recited poems to pay tributes to the infallible and chosen leader of Islam and humanity. The 15th of holy month of Sha’aban has again rekindled the hope of suffered humanity and filled the hearts of human beings with fragrance of his memories. The suffered humanity misses him and he will surely reappear to eliminate the oppression and tyranny. May God Almighty hasten his reappearance from the House of God in the most sacred and blessed city of Mecca.
