ARBA’EEN: Sheikh Zakzaky’s disciples in Katsina embark on blood donation for the sake of Imam Husein (AS)

From Tuesday the 29th of August, 2023, followers of Sayyid Ibraheem Yaqoub Zakzaky (H) in the city of Katsina embark on blood donation for the sake of Imam Hussein (AS) as the Arba’een symbolic walk starts.

They organized the blood donation In collaboration with the National Blood Service Commission (NBSC) on Tuesday 29th August, at the premises of General Hospital, Katsina.

On Wednesday, 30th of August, 2023, sisters donated the blood following brothers who started donating on Tuesday.

The Islamic Movement Medical Initiative (ISMA) has since announced the donation of the blood that is going on at the premises of Katsina General Hospital. The members of the medical initiative also called on brothers to prepare in terms of feeding before coming to donate blood.

It could be recalled that the National Blood Transfusion Unit had presented Sayyid Zakzaky (H) with a prestigious award for encouraging blood donation.

Sayyid Zakzaky (H) had also given officials of the National Blood Transfusion Unit no objection to receiving blood donations at every programmes of the Islamic Movement from willing members.

Since then the love for blood donation among followers of the Islamic movement has increased, especially in the month of Muharram, in which the blood of Imam Hussein (AS), his children, and his companion, was spilled at the plain of Karbala, 61 years after Hijrah. Members view blood donation at this sacred period as a sacrifice to the blood of Imam Hussain spilled on the 10th of Muharram.
