Minhaj Women’s League (Nottingham) held its weekly Halqa-e-Durood on the 17th of October 2015 at Lenton Muslim Centre, Nottingham.
Alhumdulliah, this Mehfil was attended by both MWL members and non-members. The Mehfil commenced with a beautiful Tilawat and translation of Surah Al Zilzal, from The Glorious Quran by Sister Kausar Yaqoob (Dawah Secretary). This was followed by listening to a Beautiful Speech by Shaykh-ul-Islam, Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri on Hazarat Rabia Basri.

Similarly on 19th October, the Halqa commenced with a beautiful recitation and translation of The Glorious Quran by Sister Kausar Yaqoob (Dawah Secretary).
As the Holy month of Muharram is upon us the congregation listened to part of Shaykh-ul-Islam, Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri's speech that explains how important the characters of Hazarat Fatima, Hararat Ali and Hazarat Hussain to both Allah(SWT) and His Beloved Prophet (PBUH). Shaykh-ul-Islam, Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri's speech bought tears to all sister’s eyes. He eloquently narrated in great detail the love and respect of the Prophet (PBUH) towards His daughter. As Muslims we all share this sentiment given our love for Our Beloved Prophet (PBUH).
Next Sister Kausar Yaqoob gave a lecture on Wudhu, detailing its significance. She also answered many questions regarding the importance of Wudhu.
The Mehfil continued with reciting first Qasseda Burda Shareef, Salaam and then Zikr by all Sisters present. The Mehfil was formally concluded with a Dua by Sister Kausar Yaqoob.
