Alhamdulillah, with the blessings of Shaykh-ul-Islam, the first opening program for youth brothers weekly 'Monday Youth Dhikr' on Monday 19th November 2012 that took place in the Minhaj-ul-Quran Education Centre Halifax went very well; Monday was selected because of its connection to the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.); the day of the birth of the Prophet (S.A.W.) was Monday. In this first session, the Minhaj-ul-Quran Education Project team's target was to attract approximately 40 youth brothers to attend; this target was successfully met, and all the participants were 16+ years old youth brothers and most of them were 18+ years old. All brothers promised to attend each week and to bring along their friends to the next one Insha'Allah, we are looking to have 100 regular youth brothers who will be attending every week, we will achieve this very soon with the blessings of Shaykh-ul-Islam Insha'Allah.
