Quran 14:37: "O our Lord! I have made some of my offspring to dwell in a valley without cultivation, by Thy Sacred House; in order, O our Lord, that they may establish regular prayer. So fill the hearts of some among men with love towards them, and feed them with fruits: so that they may give thanks".

Prophet Muhammad s.a.w: "Surely, there exists in the hearts of the Mu'mineen, with respect to the martyrdom of Husayn (a), a heat that never subsides".

Here are some of his last majalis of 2010 at the old imambargah as well as recent ones of Hujj Islam Mohd Rosli and other scholars : hbi on vimeo
