Sister Nasreen Akhtar (Dawah Secretary) commenced with peaceful recitation of the Glorious Quran. This was then followed by Darood Sharif which was recited for around 30-40 minutes by all the attendees. The amount of Darood Sharif read each week is recorded and passed on at an international level by Sister Nasreen Akhtar.
Sister Abida Parveen (Welfare Secretary) narrated a short Hadith on the importance of Salah and the place of worship (Masjid). Sister Nasreen recited and translated a passage from Surah Baqra, these verses highlighted the importance of The Quran. Sister Khalda Khan (President) went on to explain the passage in more detail for the sisters.
A precise talk by His Eminence Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri on the rights of women and wives in particular was played for the sisters. Sister Khalda khan ran a short question and answer session to check the sisters' understanding. From the responses it is apparent that the sisters took away beneficial knowledge.
The gathering concluded with Aeysha Mirza (General Secretary) leading the Dhikr followed by a beautiful Salaam and Dua.
As it had been previously announced that this was a gathering for Eid-ul-Adha the sisters had contributed to the meal at the end of the gathering, by bringing a selection of home prepared dishes.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the mehfil, overall it was a success.
