The Government Hospital

THE Government Hospital at Arusha is a pretty, Spanish type of building. A large coffee plantation is on one side, and opposite is old Meru. As I waited outside this morning, many natives passed, mostly Masai women in their old skins. Like the giraffe and the camel, one is aware of them twenty feet or more away. Most of the women carried babies, as well as heavy loads, upon their backs or heads. The babies were tied onto their mothers in many and intricate ways-over their hips, on their backs, around their stomachs-and, as if they were not burdened enough, the arms, legs, and necks of the women were wound with telephone wire, hanging far below their breasts, and the lobes of their ears were distended with bone ornaments or wooden disks. With the Masai, wealth is measured by cattle, and the more cattle a Masai possesses, the more telephone wire his wives wear.

All sorts of arresting coiffures passed as I watched.

The Masai women shave their heads but the men have many ways of dressing their hair. Most of the Masai warriors plait it in pigtails, wearing one in front and one behind; some wear curiously shaped little bonnets made of goats' stomachs; some tie wool and string into their hair, making wigs as it were, which they plaster with oil and red mud, while some wear immense headdresses of ostrich feathers and tails.

The Masai love decoration and personal adornment. Their shields are painted in a variety of design, and both men and women wear earrings and bracelets and necklaces.

One young Masai warrior I watched walk down the road, his straight muscular side and limb showing each time he stepped. He was marvelously developed, not an ounce of fat, the long muscle of the leg playing gracefully at each step, just like that of the antelopes we have been so constantly studying. These natives seem no more naked than does an antelope, and they are just as beautifully formed.

This fact of no fat interests me. In our dissections a small amount of fat was found about certain organs. This, however, was more apt to be seen among the carnivora than the herbivora. The elephant showed only 26 pounds of fat. One never sees a fat native. Neither does one see scrawny natives. A young Masai warrior is as perfect a specimen of his kind as is a young lion of its kind. The young warrior bleeds his cattle and mixes the blood with sour milk for his food. The lion kills his food, getting the same chemical units. It really is as logical for the native to take the blood which the animal makes as the milk.

The World Federation of Khoja Shia Ithnaasheri Muslim Communities
Extract Author: Al Haj Ally Hemani

Visit to Arusha

Al Haj Ally Hemani, Executive Councillor of NASIMCO has visited Arusha, Tanzania. Herewith is his report as presented by NASIMCO.

Though a small town, Arusha, which is a border town with Kenya and not a long distance from Nairobi, portrays a typical town life which is simple and full of brotherhood.

There are about 800 Khoja Shia Ithna asheri members settled and though a small number have made a great and impressive impact upon the local population and authorities.

In addition to the Mosque, Imambada, Madrasa Complex, Arusha has a Nursery and a primary School, a hospital with various essential departments which even our larger centers in Tanzania lack.

The successful operating of this hospital and managing it so efficiently within a limited budget is really commendable.

The Community has extended its services beyond the community and has daringly taken up the gigantic project of renovating and extending the Arusha Regional Hospital, Mount Meru Hospital. This has been possible under the present Chairman of the Medical sub committee, Al Haj Ghulamhussein Mukhtar. This Son of the community is not only energetic, aggressive, daring, forceful, sincere, resourceful and influential, but his full faith in the Absolute Power and Creator has earned him a team of similar dedicated members.

Br Ghulamhussein Mukhtar has also established an Islamic Library in the city center. This library operates for long hours and is benefiting a large population of the indigenous residents. Regular video programs are arranged during the day which attracts many African youths. This method has been very effective to impart Islamic and particularly Shia faith amongst the locals. This can be observed by the increasing number of converts attending the Juma Prayers at our mosque on Fridays. An African Alim has been employed to serve the people coming to the library.

I was informed that several villages have converted to Shias in and around Arusha Region.

Al Haj Ghulamhussein Mukhtar has donated his previous residential unit where he supervises the operating of a small Hawza. Here various religious classes are organized to cater for different categories of people and ages. Some students who take up religious education on full time basis are also accommodated in the premises.

I was very much moved to observe these activities and propose to the various Jamaats of North America to at least keep up to date regarding Shia Propagation projects going on in the other parts of the world, and maybe plan out strategies whereby we can assist them financially or otherwise.

I also request members travelling on holidays or business to visit Shia centers and report to us for our information and knowledge. As a Muslim ummah we should at least be in contact with them.

WASSALAAM
