John and Fizza, the African Sacrifice to Karbala

John and Fizza ICE poster

Ridhayatullah Theatre in conjunction with the Islamic Centre of London would like to invite you to the forthcoming evenings of Interfaith theatre featuring 'John and Fizza, the African Sacrifice to Karbala'

John and Fizza teaser
Trailer of Wahab (past performance)

Imam Hussain has become a symbol of peace, justice, sacrifice and good virtue with a global recognition of 1.5 Billion people having heard of this saint who sacrificed his life for humanity.  Amongst the companions of Imam Hussain were John, an Abyssinian freed slave who served Imam Hussain and gave his life in upholding the truth and rejecting evil.  Equally, Fizza was an Abyssinian princess who left her lands to join the struggle of Imam Hussain for similar reasons.  The selfless sacrifice made by black Abyssinian personalities such as John and Fizza at the epic of Karbala have great lessons for us to learn amidst a world full of racial discrimination and injustice.  We hope to get together in unison to celebrate our similarities as citizens of one earth and human beings of one species.

The theatrical performance will be conducted by Ridhayatullah theatre, specialising in interfaith theatre at the following venue:

Sunday 5th January 6pm, Islamic Centre of England, 140 Maida Vale, London, W9 1QB. Tickets £7 adults, £4 child.

To reserve your tickets, please text: DATE, NAME, # OF TICKETS to 07958310657  for example: 5 JAN, JOHN DOE, 3 ADULTS 2 CHILD.

rain weatherDear Members

Salaam Alaykum

Please take note of the weather warning issued by the Met Office today:

"Spells of heavy rainfall will continue to affect parts of southern England and South Wales during Monday and overnight into Christmas Eve, clearing the southeast of England before dawn. This will fall onto saturated ground and lead to a risk of flooding.

This is an update to the warning issued on Sunday. The public should be prepared for the likelihood of some significant disruption due to the combined hazards of heavy rainfall and high winds, for which see also the separate wind warnings."

Based on the guidance above, we ask all those who are to attend the centre tonight and tomorrow, to allow extra time for your journey and to co-operate with the volunteers during entering and exiting the centre.

Thank you
