Abdullahi Radi’s Day was marked on the 8th day Ashura mourning session on Thursday 8th Muharram 1442 (27/8/2020) at Imam Aliyu Ridha Markaz, Kofar waika, Kano with Shaikh Halliru Lawan Khidir as the special guest and Mal Auwal S Abubakar as the chairman of the session.

In his speech Shaikh Khidir spoke on the thousands of letters of plea and complain sent to Imam Husain (AS) from Kufa at a the time he left Madina for Makka on pilgrimage with his family and followers which necessitated heading from Makka to Kufa on 8th Muharram. Among his entourage was his son Abdullahi Radi who was about two years old. After encircling Imam Husain (AS) and seventy two of his followers at the plain of Karbala by the army of yazid bin mu’awuya numbering more than forty thousand Imam and his companions were denied access to food and water. Imam Husain (AS) on seeing the thirst in Abdullahi Radi from his Mother, he took him towards yazid’s army appealing for water for the infant Abdullahi to drink. The Imam addressed them “if I might have done anything wrong to you, this child did not wrong you in anyway, so please give him water” Instead, they shot the little child with arrow which tore his throat and blood kept gushing and dripping from his throat. With tears, Imam Husain (AS) turned towards his people  saying  ‘YaAllah’ . When approaching his camp women burst into cries of grief.
The speaker further said ‘We are marking Abdullahi Radi’s day to remember the oppression and brutal killing of Abdullahi Radi- an infant in a state of thirsty and gasping for water only for yazid’s soldier to pierce his throat with an arrow..... “We unequivocally curse all those involved in commiting this aggression and those who support the act”
Children below the age of two were dressed with green clothes and banners tied around the head by their mothers remembering the calamity meted on Abdullahi Radi.
Mal Yusuf Hamza recited supplication while all present stood up in honor of Abdullahi Radi and poetry of Abdullahi Radi and Imam Husain was recited by Shu’ara group.
The Daily Latma was performed and night prayers, ziyarat Imam Husain (AS) and dua Khumayl recited.
