HUNDREDS of devout Muslims flocked to the Minhaj-ul-Quran International (London) Centre in Forest Gate and paid homage to the sacred relics of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.).
The event Halaqa al-Salat alan Nabi literally Service for the Offering of Salutations upon the Prophet (S.A.W.) marked its 50th anniversary. The golden jubilee of its inception was marked on Saturday 25th July 2011. Hundreds of devout Muslims paid visitation and respect to nine sacred relics of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.). This appears to be the first such gathering in the UK where numerous blessed hairs of Prophet Muhammad were displayed together in one event. The visitation service commenced from late evening and continued until dawn.
