On Sunday 18th May 2014, Minhaj-ul-Quran International – Women League London, held a Meraj-un-Nabi (P.B.U.H) gathering in order to celebrate the blessed night when Almighty Allah had invited Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) to visit and talked with very nearer distance as mentioned in the Glorious Qur'an :"Then a distance measuring only two bow-lengths was left (between Allah Unveiled and His Esteemed Beloved), or even less than that (in extreme nearness)" (Irfan -ul- Quran, Surat An-Najm : 53:9).
It was organized at the Minhaj-ul-Quran London.
It was an honour for MWL as the main Urdu speech was delivered by Sister Sehrish Mobeen (Aalamiyah M.A Arabic,asha-ha-dut-ul-Alimah)
She said that in The Holy Quran there is an Ayath in which Almighty Allah informs us: "So surely ease (comes) with every hardship"(Irfan -ul- Quran, Sura ash-Sharh : 94:5)
