On Sunday 5th July Sandwell Minhaj Women’s League organised a gathering at the local mosque. The sisters called the programme 'Benefits of Ramadan' because we have entered the holy month of Ramadan and were also teaching from this book written by Shaykh-Ul-Islam Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri in Urdu. On the day our stage secretary was sister Shamila and sister Nabila Bibi. We commenced with Tilawat which was recited by sister Aishah. A couple of Nasheeds were recited by a couple of the attendees.
Sister Sadia Bibi Sandwell Minhaj Womens league was then introduced who gave a beautiful speech relating to the month of Ramadan from Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri's book 'Roza aur itikaf' chapter 1 and 2 was taught. The first chapter in this book informs us of where the name Ramadan came from and the second chapter is questions and answers relating to Ramadan for example reasons which make you exempt from fasting etc.
We then followed the session by a quiz which took place after we had played Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri’s CD called 'Zakaat ki Ahmeyat', the ladies who listened attentively and gave the right answer received a DVD as a prize.
A few more attendees recited Nasheeds then sister Shamaila Ali also took part by giving the youth a talk about the importance of having a connection with the best of creation صلى الله عليه وسلم and reciting Salutations (Durood shareef) on the holy prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم in abundance. This gathering brought in at least 30 ladies from the local area. We finished with prayers and sweets were distributed to the children who attended.
