  32. Safar 7 is a special day in Islamic history. Some say that it is the day that Imam Hassan AS was martyred but most say that he was martyred on Safar 28, the same day as Prophet Muhammad SA. Safar 7 is the day that the 7th Imam Moosa Kadhim AS was born, however since that day falls in between the tragedy of Ashura and Arba'een, the birthday of Imam Kazim AS is not celebrated, but his life is remembered and ziyarahs are recited. https://www.al-Islam.org/brief-history-fourteen-infallibles/ninth-infallible-seventh-Imam https://www.al-Islam.org/brief-history-fourteen-infallibles/fourth-infallible-second-Imam#al-Hasan-ibn-Ali-al-mujtaba-peace-be-him

  41. The first Monday in September. Labour Day (Labor Day in the US) is an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers. Labour Day in Canada has its origins in the labour union movement, specifically the eight-hour day movement, which advocated eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest. Labor Day in the US honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country.

    International Quds Day

    Ayatullah Khomeini RA designated the last Friday of the Holy Month of Ramadan as International Quds Day. It was his reminder to the Ummah of their duty to speak out against the oppression of the Palestinians living under the tyranny of occupation. If anything prevents you from attending Quds Day, speaking out against oppression or writing about it, then at least make dua for those oppressed ones. May Allah SWT bless you in all your Islamic endeavors.
