By the Grace of Allah Almighty and the blessings of His Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.), a Training / Tarbiyyati workshop was organized at Minhaj-ul-Quran International London on 1st February 2014 headed by Dr Raheeq Ahmed Abbasi, Chief Organiser UK. This tarbiyyati workshop is a follow up of the re-structuring and forming of the new executive body. The workshop started with the recitation of verses from The Holy Quran followed by a beautiful nasheed & salutations sent on Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.). A short introductory welcome was said by Syed Ali Abbas Bukhari, General Secretary Minhaj-ul-Quran International UK, in which he explained the need and the importance of this training and tarbiyyati workshop in detail. He mentioned that the importance for tarbiyyat is a sunnah of the Prophet SAW and also stated that we should know the aims and objectives of our mission inside out. This is the first ever workshop held at a national level for the tarbiyyat of workers of Minhaj-ul-Quran UK.
Briefing on power point which lasted more than three hours, by Dr Raheeq Abbasi started beautifully in the main hall, where a large number of the audience including women and youth were present. Speaking on the occasion, he emphasised that we need to understand he aims and objective of Minhaj-ul-Quran. Islam is a religion of welfare and wellbeing and those from among the men and women who work for the promotion and propagation of Islamic faith in fact work for welfare of the humanity and for the mission that the Holy Prophet SAW promoted.
Dr Raheeq Abbasi went on to say, Tehreek-e-Minhaj-ul-Quran is the tehreek of Allah as he ordered us to make a tehreek and this is also sunnah of The Prophet SAW. No one can harm or damage our tehreek because of its ideology, vision and promotion of Love, Knowledge and peace throughout the globe between all cultures and religions. Our Leader and founder Professor Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri give us the vision and wisdom to take this tehreek further to peace between all religions according to the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet SAW.
During the detailed presentation, he also focused on the importance of team work and said team work is crucial for any organisation to be successful on a higher level. We can achieve the impossible when people unite and act as one unit. We as one organisation have to adopt the method of team work and cultivate more and more people for the success of our mission. One major advantage of having a team is that the quality, success and details of our work will be increased due to the increased number of ideas which will all be incorporated into one single idea. He also urged all the local committees to spread the message of Love, Peace and Harmony across the whole UK and specially the all boroughs of capital.
He also explained a little on The Dawah project, which is one of the first steps that our Prophet SAW took. Alhamdulillah, The Dawah team in the UK is doing great work through distribution of books, DVD and CD in different part of the community. Recently, The Dawah Project team celebrated a milad in HMP Birmingham and were awarded a certificate of appreciation by Winson Green Prison presented by prison Director Peter Small and at the end of the programme, three people reverted to Islam and this would not be possible without The Dawah team efforts.
A very informative and fruitful presentation presented by Dr Raheeq Abbasi and a large crowed get benefited. At the end of presentation, a group activity also took place on the point prepared by Sayed Ali Abbas Bukhari. The discussion gave the participants to share their personal views and suggestions. All the audience was also asked to fill the membership form to update member data. The audience was really happy with this workshop and hopefully in future, these types of workshops should be held regularly to update the new system and agenda.
Allama Muhammad Zeeshan Qadri, Director Minhaj-ul-Quran International London gave special thanks to the honourable guests of the evening for coming to London and updating us on very useful information.
