It was a lovely Sunday morning, the sky clear blue, the sun shining and it’s the month of ‘Rabi’al-Awwal - the first spring’ in which the birth of the Beloved Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace be upon him) took place. In celebrating this blessed occasion, MQI Manchester was invited by the ‘Trinity Community Church’ (TCC) to participate in ‘Peace in the Mix – celebrating Peace Week 2010’ at the Amani Centre, Manchester.
