The Minhaj Women League UK President Sister Fatima Mash'hadi, General Secretary Sister Mussarat Hussain and Deputy Secretary Sister Madiha Khawaja honoured the North Minhaj Women Leagues of Manchester, Bolton, Oldham, Bradford, Halifax, Huddersfield, Nelson, Burnley, Rochdale and Accrington North with a three day inspirational visit.
The aim of the visit was to discuss the MWL North Zones ongoing efforts to propagate the peaceful message of Islam with the guidance of His Eminence Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri. The current structure of the teams was discussed and some reorganisation took place where required with consultation of the Sisters.
The Esteemed President MWL UK praised the North Zone MWLs and inspired the Sisters for their future dynamic work on the platform of Minhaj-ul-Quran.
The eloquent message she delivered was highly motivational. She spoke in the light of the Glorious Quran and Ahadeeth to highlight the significance of the cascading of the real message of Islam to the wider community, referring to verses from the Glorious Quran:
"And from you amongst you there must be a community compromising the people who invite mankind towards piety, enjoin righteousness and forbid evil. And they are the successful people." (3:104)
A Mubaligath Course was offered to the MWL's North Zone, it will commence on the 29th of November, 2015. The first phase will cover the Tajweed of the Glorious Quran, with a focus on the correct pronunciation of the Arabic letters and words. This course will consist of a combined learning experience, online and face to face sessions. Certificates will be presented to all participants. In the future, further phases of this course will cover 'Tafseer', to make clear the meaning of the Glorious Quran and subsequently 'Fiqh.'
The President MWL UK highlighted His Eminence Shaykh-ul-Islam has authored over a thousand coherent books covering all Islamic Sciences, peace and human rights. She advised all the Sisters to study the essentials of Islam by reading three books authored by His Eminence Shaykh-ul-Islam. These are titled Iman (Faith), Islam and Ehsan (reflecting inner faith in deeds and actions). The books are to be memorised, the Sisters will then be assessed. To help embed the knowledge the Sister's will gain through the literature, the President MWL UK recommended listening to a ten minute clip of His Eminence Shaykh-ul-Islam's lecture in solitude having made ablution, for personal 'tarbiyyah' (education and training). The Sisters have invaluable resources available to them via Minhaj-ul-Quran, using these will indefinitely reshape their lives with regard to their Islamic education and spiritual betterment.
The Sisters reflected that they would partake in these activities and were extremely blessed to be a part of the Blessed Mission. MWL North Zone were grateful for the MWL UK Executives valuable time and were highly inspired and motivated by the President Sister Fatima's words.
A heartfelt Dua was made by the President MWL UK and other Sisters.
May Allah SWT allow all the Sisters to continue to propagate the peaceful message of Islam via Minhaj-ul-Quran platform.
Light refreshments and food were served.
