The Momineen and Mominaat especially the Youths are involved in all sorts of Religious and Social activities. Recently a Non Muslim from Chennai embraced Islaam in Bahrain. He accepted Islam as his belief and chose Fiqh e Jafariyya as his Fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence)and thus became a Shia Muslim. The Youths of Perambur and other localities gave him a warm welcome. Our Moulana Ahmad Raza Khan Saahib announced this good news to the Momineen of Perambur in his Eid ul Adha (Bakrid) khutba on Tuesday 9th December 2008. On Sunday 26th of April 2009 at "Aastana e Ali ibn Abi Taalib (as)" (Madarasa) the Naumuslim got Married to a Shia Girl. The Nikah from bride's end was recited by our Chief Shia Khazi Govt of Tamil Nadu Moulana Muhammad Mehdi Khan Saahib Qibla. The Nikah from bride groom was recited by our Moulana Ahmad Raza Khan Saahib Qibla. Shukr Alhamdulillah the marriage was successful with the blessings of 14 Masoomeen (as) and with the help of our Perembur Momineen and Mominaaat.

This is just the beginning of this Mohalla and you can see more when you visit.
Perambur is in North Chennai. Perambur is a place which used to be a bamboo forest a few hundred years ago, around the Huzur Gardens area, which currently houses the Simpsons Pvt. Ltd,. In Tamil, "Perambu" means bamboo and "oor" means city or place.Therefore its a Bamboo City. It is located 4 km from Chennai Central station. Perambur is 12 km from Thousand Lights which is the Markaz (Center) for Shias in Tamil Nadu.
Initially Shias who were working as Southern Railway Employees settled down in Perambur. Slowly the Mohalla developed with Masjid and Imambaargah's. Perambur is served by three railway stations. They are Perambur, Perambur Carriage Works and Perambur Loco Works. It has a Railway Stadium and Perambur Bus Terminus. Recently a New Fly over has been constructed here. There are Malls, Schools, Colleges etc. The only thing Perambur is missing out is an "Airport" !!!
Alhamdulillah with the Blessings of 14 Masoomeen (as) Perambur has one Masjid which is called as "Masjid e Hussainy".
