The Mehfils consisted of Sister Nasreen Akhtar (Dawah Sec) beginning by a Tilawat of The Holy Quran. This is then followed by Durood Sharif which is recited for around 30-40 minutes. The amount of Durood Sharif read is recorded and passed on at national level by the MWL Dawah secretary.
The MWL Tinsley Dawah Secretary reads a passage from The Holy Quran with the translation and then MWL Tinsley President Khalda Khan explains the passage in more detail.
Aeysha Mirza (MWL Tinsley General Secretary) invites children on to the stage to read Hamds, Naats and Manqabats. Some of these children are as follows: Zara, Bilal, Noor, Isa, Samia, Aqsa, Somia etc.
We conclude the Mehfil with Zikr which is led by Sister Abida Parveen (MWL Tinsley Welfare Secretary) with Salaam and Dua.
Sister Sajida (MWL Tinsley Finance Secretary) sets the table for food. The food compromises of various dishes which is catered for by the community itself and MWL Tinsley.
Everyone is thoroughly enjoying all the Mehfils that have took place so far and continue to do so.
It's been a challenge to cater for so many people each day but the team has been great in managing their responsibilities.
Everyone has appreciated the efforts of the team and most importantly played a part in the Celebrating the Birth of Prophet Muhammed ﷺ.
