On Sunday 24th July 2011, a beautiful annual ceremony for Bayt-ul-Hikmah (House of Wisdom) classes was organised and the annual results announced for the students.  The students attended the classes throughout the year, every Sunday from 10am to 12pm.  The Bayt-ul-Hikmah classes are held on a semester basis, in which each semester consists of three months.  We have almost 150 students for Bayt-ul-Hikmah and it is pertinent to mention that these classes are the longest running classes in MQI London.

The prize distribution ceremony started under the supervision of Allama Abdul Basit Al-Azhari who performed the duty of stage secretary along with his young trained student secretary Hamayun Farooq. While performing the duties of stage secretary, Abdul Basit highlighted the importance of the child’s tarbiyah at home and outlined the opportunity that Minhaj-ul-Quran offers youngsters to practically get involved in working for the deen.

The ceremony started with the recitation of the Holy Qur’an by Saad Farooq and translation by Ata-ul-Mustafa Sethi.  Hafiz Asim Shabbir (the first student to complete his hifz at MQI London) also recited a beautiful tilawah and left the audience raising their appreciation with Praises such as Subhan Allah and Masha’Allah.

Following the recitations of the Holy Qur’an, Naats were recited by Tay-yibah Shabbir, Haseeb Raza and Ayesh Azam.  The emotional naats grabbed the attention of all the parents and audience present in the hall.

This was followed by the speech of Ahmed Raza, a natural talent who prepared his speech himself without any help. It was a beautiful talk and he was shown much appreciation.

The main event of the prize distribution ceremony was the quiz competition. The quiz competition was prepared under the guidance of Allama Sadiq Qureshi Al-Azhari, Principal, Bayt-ul-Hikmah and the questions were related to the month of Ramadan. (Allama Sadiq Qureshi couldn’t himself participate in the ceremony as he had gone to Spain to teach an Islamic Studies course).  The quiz was a wonderful idea and a beautiful competition took place which was full of knowledge for all the parents and audience. The competition was between two teams, one from the boys’ side and one from the girls’ side, with various age categories.  Each team had forty questions and it was a very tough competition. The girls’ team won by half a mark!  It was a fantastic result and close competition.

Then the time arrived for which all parents, students and teachers had been anxiously waiting for- the announcement of the Annual Examination Result 2011. The tension was rising as Baji Nasra, Coordinator of Bayt-ul-Hikmah classes held the result card. The beautiful trophies were displayed on the table. She began by announcing the results of the students in different classes / age groups.
