We held our monthly Gosha-e-Imaan programme at Corbett Street mosque in Smethwick. We started our gathering at 2pm, Sister Shamaila Ali and Sister Nabila Bibi (General Secretary of Sandwell Minhaj Women League) were appointed to be the stage secretaries for the programme. Sister Aisha Kosar was invited to start the programme with the recitation of The Holy Quran.
Sister Sadia Bibi (Dawah Secretary Sandwell MWL) gave a beautiful speech on the importance of 15th Shaban in Islam, Ibn Majah reported that The Prophet Muhammed صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم said: When the 15th night of Shaban comes, observe night vigil Prayer during it and fast on that day, for Almighty Allah descends after sunset on that night to the lowest Heaven and says, 'Is there anyone who seeks My forgiveness and I forgive him (or her)? Is there anyone who is in need to ask me and I provide for his (or her) needs. Is there anyone who is in pain and seeks my help and I help him (or her)? Is there? Is there?' until the time of Dawn.
We also played Shaykh-Ul-Islam Dr Muhammed Tahir-ul-Qadri's CD called 'Shab e baraat ki haqeeqat kya hai?' after which sister Nabila had a questionnaire ready and she asked the ladies questions from the CD and gave gifts to all who gave the correct answer.
Sister Shamaila Ali gave a speech in English about how and why you should respect your parents and you should be kind to them as they were to you when you were younger. Sister Shamaila then asked the children questions about her speech and a gift was given to the child who answered correctly.
Final talk was delivered by Sister Zinnat who mentioned the miracles and blessings of Ghaus-e-Azam Shaykh Abdul Qadir Al-Jillani Razi Allah Ta'ala Anhu. We finished with Salaam and Dua. Food was distributed to the ladies that attended.
