On Wednesday 27th August 2014, Jamia Masjid Minhaj-ul-Quran, Nelson, held and a fun activity day for young children who attend the education centre. The aim of the event was to teach children about key aspects of Islam in a fun and creative way. Many of the children enjoyed carrying out various tasks, and also learnt about the work of Minhaj-ul-Quran.
There were a variety of tasks set out around the mosque, and each class was able to carry out activities of their choice. There was a section for students to sew a large Minhaj-ul-Quran flag. Students enjoyed sewing and piecing together red, white and green fabric to create a large flag, which can also be used in the future for the backdrop of stages.
There were also areas where students could colour and paint pictures and posters of mosques, and religious places around the world. There was also a segment dedicated to students who wished to get some face painting done.
All the students and teachers enjoyed taking part and learning about Minhaj-ul-Quran, and requested that similar events be held in the future.
