On hearing the news this morning, we humbly performed Sajadat and Shukr. It is a great honor that our beloved Moula, Syedna Aali Qadr Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS, has bestowed on all of us, the mumineen of the United States, announcing that the auspicious days of Ashara Mubaraka will be observed this year in Houston, Texas.   We can all only hope that we are all witnesses to Moula TUS’s Sajadat on the day of Ashura.

The Mumineen of Houston have been hard at work for months planning this event. Many of you have been recruited for various khidmats already. With the raza of Shehzada Malek-ul-Ashtar Bhaisaheb, the Ashara 1437 Medical Camp Committee was formed to oversee the operation of a full service multispecialty clinic to serve Mumineen during these 10 days. The goals of the medical camp are not only to provide acute medical care to Mumineen in need, but also to screen for diseases such as diabetes and breast cancer, to provide educational services on various disease processes, and to ensure that Mumineen attending Ashara this year in Houston have access to the best medical and dental care that the US can offer.

Over the next several weeks, we will be organizing teams of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and ancillary volunteers to staff this clinic. We plan to have rapid response teams on call for any and all medical emergencies which may arise. We will have a concomitant urgent care facility within the clinic. There will be an area within the clinic for specialists to provide consultations to Mumineen. We will also be organizing a full service dental clinic this year. Importantly, there will be a disease screening clinic where we will offer diabetes and cholesterol screening, lab work, and breast cancer screenings. If specialists are willing, we will also set up some educational seminars centered around various topics pertinent directly to Mumineen and their health and well-being.

All of this requires staffing and volunteers. In conjunction with SBMAA, we would like to put out a general call for volunteers to staff these teams for Houston Ashara 1437. We would humbly ask that you sign up for the medical camp khidmat through HoustonAshara.com. Also, please leave a comment on this post to let us know what specific areas you would be willing to serve in during these days. Please post your area of medical expertise, your arrival date to Houston, and any other comments, questions, or ideas. We will make specific assignments for everyone involved. We pray that all of us work together to show the world how American physicians continue to be leaders in the medical community, providing a high standard of care, in humble service to our fellow Mumineen. Let us all work together to attain the Khushi Mubarak of our beloved Mufaddal Moula, TUS.
