On Sunday 14th February 2016, Minhaj-ul-Quran International Nelson in co-ordination with Minhaj Welfare Foundation held a Qawali & Sadaat Fundraising Dinner at Palatine Hall, Nelson. The event was organised by Minhaj-ul-Quran Nelson Tanzeem members Haji Maroof Hussain, Haji Ghulam Mustafa and Haji Muhammad Ismail Sahib. Tickets were priced at £10 with all proceeds going towards Sadaat families.
The event commenced with the beautiful recitation of the Holy Quran by Qari Syed Yousaf Shah Sahib. Qari Saab praised Minhaj–ul-Quran for arranging this event and showing great love and affection towards the family of our Beloved Prophet (pbuh) the Ahlul Bait. Local Naat Khawans Ishfaq Warsi Sahib and Syed Faiz Rasul Shah Sahib also read Naats.
The highlight of the event was a spectacular Qawali extravaganza by renowned artists Qaiser Qawal & Party of Bradford. Many popular Qawalis were performed on the night including Allah Hoo, Bar do joli ya Muhammad and Dam-a-dam Mast Qalandar. It was a hugely entertaining evening which mesmerised the audience and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
MWF Project Manager Shaykh Adnan Al-Azhari presented a 10 minute video highlighting the many projects underway in Pakistan to support Sadaat children & families. It was announced that all money raised during this evening would go to the Sadaat fund as Qaiser Qawal & Party had kind-heartedly agreed not to take any payment. This generous and commendable gesture was well appreciated by the audience.
Allama Nauman thanked everyone for attending the event and food was served at the end.
