2019 March for Hussain:
After the incredible confluence of the past years, in Muharram 1441, we will once again witness the passionate gathering of the Ahlul-Bayt (PBUT) followers on the streets of Toronto, Canada. On Tuesday, September 10th, which coincides with the day of Ashura, the march will begin at 10:00 AM from Lee Lifeson Art Park, North York. To see the full route please click here.
Time Left Until Ashura
"No battle in the modern and past history of mankind has earned more sympathy and admiration as well as provided more lessons than the martyrdom of Hussain in the battle of Karbala." -Antoine Bara
Financial Support & Expenses
It is clear that the higher the funding, the more the organizers will have the ability to hold a memorable ceremony. Notable expenses are the rental cost of audio systems, drum and gauge, improving the appearance of the Dasteh, buying bottles of water, flowers and other promotional items. It should be noted that all the expenses of Toronto's Ashura Procession are provided by the Imam Hussain (AS) followers and donors which are spent by their own supervision. Hence, the financial support of each individual in the process of this effort is important.
Executive Affairs & Groups
In order to hold a quality and systematic event, the Ahlul-Bayt (PBUT) devotees have come together to form groups which focus on different affairs. Among these groups are the departments responsible for photography, video and editing, field advertisement, drumming and instrumentalists, and law enforcement volunteers. What is at display on the noon Ashura is the result of weeks of effort by different individuals. Undeniably, the more active these groups are, the better the ceremony will be. Hence, everyone is invited to participate in this massive movement by joining these groups.
Toronto's Ashura March was first formed by the efforts of a group of Imam Hussain's servants who have worked without any connection to governmental institutions, in Muharram 2015. After an amazing reception of this movement on the first occurrence, the ceremony is held every year in Toronto, Canada with growing passion. The purpose of this movement is to portray the Shiite unity of Imam Hussain (AS) and introduce him to others. We hope that this movement becomes a step to bring about the emergence of the one who will shout:
"ألا يا أهل العالم إن جدّی الحسين قتلوه عطشانا".
