By the Grace of Allah a gathering was organised by MWL Nelson to commemorate the first anniversary of those martyred in the Model Town Lahore Tragedy. The programme was held at Minhaj-ul-Quran Centre Carr Road Nelson on 22 June 2015 as mark of respect in memory of those mercilessly massacred on the 17 June 2014.
The event commenced with the recitation of Durood Paak to send blessings upon our Beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW followed by a beautiful recitation from The Holy Quran with the translation from Irfan-ul-Quran. The attendees sat and recited Surah Yaseen and Quran e Paak for the Issal e Sawaab of the martyrs.
The Mehfil continued with the beautiful recitation of Imam Al-Busiri's Qaseedah Burdah Sharif and following this a melodious recitation of Durood Paak in congregation. Towards the end of the programme a heartfelt Zikr and the Salat O Salaam on The Holy Prophet SAW had all the participants fully involved. A heart touching and tearful Duaa was made remembering the sacrifices made by the Model Town Martyrs and their families when all the Kalaams were presented as Issal e Sawaab for the martyrs. We pray that the martyrs receive the highest rank and rewards in Jaanah and Allah Tallah blesses their families with patience. Dua was also made for the well-being, health and success of our Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri. The sisters were motivated and encouraged to attend further forthcoming weekly Halaqas held at the Minhaj-ul-Quran Centre. They were also provided with information about membership of Minhaj-ul-Quran as well as the extensive global welfare projects taking place and were motivated to participate in these projects.
