about this book
  • overview

    As our community came to reside in the Western countries, we were confronted with a new problem. Our new generation is out of contact with Urdu, unable to read or understand the language. Consequently, the Marthiyas read in Urdu failed to move the listeners emotionally. Need for writing new elegies in English was actually felt. Last year, an effort was made to compose simple elegies in English for our children. These were very popular, and our children took no time in memorising and chanting them with full appreciation. The aim of Azadari is to remind the Umma at large about the great sacrifice which was offered on the plains of Karbala, where soldiers of Islam, as old as Muslim b. Awsajah and as young as the infant Ali Asgher, were mercilessly slain. This year, we decided to print this booklet in which Marthiyas in English have been composed, so that the collection can be suitably utilised by one and all.
