Minhaj School of Islamic Sciences, London, organised and proudly presented the annual ‘Results Day’ ceremony for the students of Minhaj evening school. The ceremony took place on Friday 17th of December.
The prize distribution ceremony commenced with the recitation of the glorious Qur’an by Fattah Salih Khan, who is the youngest student of Hifz class. The beautiful recital by young Fattah left the audience raising their appreciations such as ‘Subhan’Allah’.
Following him was a second recitation, also by a student from Hifz class, Farooq Bahadur. His unique and harmonious recitation engaged the entire audience and once again left the crowd showing their appreciation by raising slogans of ‘Allah hu Akbar’ and Masha’Allah’.
Following the recitations of the Holy Qur’an, Hassan Ali was called on to read a Na’at. He marvelously recited ‘Bulalo Phir Mujhe Aye Shah-e-Bahr-o-Bar Madinay May. His emotional Na’at grabbed the attention of all present in the hall and many present were reading along, remembering their days in Madinah.
This was followed by a Manqabat by Ahmad Raza, also from Hifz class. He beautifully recited ‘Allah Allah Nabi Ka Gharana’, in praise of the Ahl-ul-Bayt. Once again, appreciations were shown by the audience and fellow students showed their support by reading along.
Before the main part of the ceremony began, Hafiz Muhammad Zeeshan, who is the newly appointed principal and also the teacher of Hifz class, was called to come and say a few words to the parents. He explained how the children were marked and what they were marked on specifically. These included: their pronunciation, perfection, memorisation, their behavior in class and their attendance. He clarified the division of marks and then gave words of appreciation to the students who performed excellently but were unable to get a position in class, due to the tough competition, which remained throughout the classes – girls and boys.
Then the time arrived which all parents, students and teachers had been anxiously waiting for - announcement of 2010 Annual Exam Results!
