Mission      

 

The mission of Husayniah is to build an interfaith community which goes beyond the rituals. Husayniah is a place where people come together to share and discuss ideas, become involved with the broader community and work on things they are passionate about. We share who we are and celebrate our diversity, not to convert or convince, but in realization of our common humanity.

Recognizing that we all belong to the one human race means we have a responsibility to act as a community to affirmatively address issues of social justice. We are inspired by Imam Husayn (as) 7th century revolutionary leader, who made the ultimate stand for social justice in the face of corruption and tyranny. He gave everything, including his life, for the dignity of his society. He challenged the status quo and brought people together. Today he is revered by people of all faiths.
