On the 16th of November 2014, the Women's League of Minhaj-ul-Quran Nelson organized a Muharram mehfil at the Minhaj-ul-Quran Centre in Nelson. This mehfil was hosted by Sister Nasreen Akhtar and Sister Ghulam fatima. Approximately two hundred participants in the form of women, girls and children attended the mehfil.
The programme was initiated with tilawat from the Holy Quran by Sister Rabiah and was then followed by a few naats sharifs which were recited by several sisters who attended the mehfil. Next Sister Nasreen Akhtar (North President MWL UK) made an address to the public regarding the situation in Pakistan. Sister Fozia Shah was invited to do a speech regarding the events of karbala.
At the end of the address the Ummrah raffle ticket was drawn from the bucket and the mehfil was concluded with invoking greetings and salutations on the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) and then a dua. We then served the women nayaaz which was served in Minhaj-ul-Quran Centre.
