Shaykh Muhammad Mardini, a Sunni, this year has opened up the community center that he leads in Dearborn to have a joint Sunni – Shi’i Muharram gatherings every night, which I believe is a first in this area. These are being held in coordination with Sheikh Mohamad Dbouk who is a 12’ver.
Shaykh Mardini was not able to speak last night. I was invited last night as a non-12’ver to give brief comments before Shaykh Dbouk’s lecture.
Imam al-Husayn is not the exclusive property of 12’vers; this is a good message being given. He is an Imam for all of the Muslims.
