On Sunday 29th January 2012 MYL-S Halifax attended the Leeds Mawlid Celebration to set up a MYL stall and promote the London Declaration for Global Peace and Resistance against Extremism at the Bangladeshi Community Centre. The event was a great success with all tickets being sold out and not a chair left empty!
The evening consisted of beautiful recitations of the Holy Quran, A powerful English speech by Shaykh Rehan Raza Qadri from Glasgow, on the topic of Mawlid-un-Nabi SAW, heart touching performances of Naats and Nasheeds by Milad Raza Qadri and an Umrah Ticket draw.
The atmosphere was electric with both young and older attendees participating enthusiastically by waving flags of the Holy Prophet SAW during the Naats and Nasheeds.
The MYL stall was a huge success, all the English Translations of the Holy Quran by Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri were sold out and the free MYL leaflets on a wide variety of different topics were quickly being taken from the stall.
Many attendees signed the London Declaration Sheets that were going around in the audience and also present on the MYL stall.
The event concluded by Salaam by Milad Raza Qadri and the announcement of the Umrah Ticket draw winner, which was a very pleasantly ‘shocked’ brother Umar from Leeds. There were a total of 93 signatures for the London Declaration collected at this Mawlid Celebration event 2012.
A huge congratulation to all involved in the Mawlid Celebration Event 2012 from the MYL-Sisters UK!
