The Ashura Project is an effort of dedicated individuals of all ages to reflect on the legacy of the event of Ashura, raise awareness of its messages for humanity and help the Detroit-Metro community understand its life changing significance.
In the history of the human race, there has never been an event so monumental while simultaneously encapsulating virtues so powerful that they will free the imprisoned soul, awaken the unconscious, and empower the powerless.
The Ashura project seeks to promote truth, love, justice, dignity, righteousness, and respect, which are among the few values learned from Ashura, as well as give humanity the tools to inscribe this very message into their hearts.
The mission of The Ashura Project:
- To reflect on the legacy of the event of Ashura, create awareness of its message of peace and justice for humanity and help the Detroit-Metro community understand its life changing significance.
- To promote values and principals taught by Ashura such as truth, love, justice, dignity, righteousness and respect.
- To seek reform in the community, and humanity in general, through the wisdoms of Imam Hussain [a].
The Ashura Project was established in February 2013 and is based in Dearborn, Michigan. It is registered in the state of Michigan as a non-profit organization.
