Al-Tazkiya 2020 - Dr Ghazala Hassan Qadri Lecture 1
The highlight of the first day of Al-Tazkiya 2020 was the much-anticipated session by our keynote speaker Dr Ghazala Hassan Qadri. She was invited by Sister Bismah Ali, the Project Lead of Al-Tazkiya 2020, to share her knowledge with the vast global audience.
It is finally here! Al-Tazkiya 2020 is back with our very first online event. Minhaj Sisters UK organizes Al-Tazkiya each year for developing and enhancing spirituality and faith among the participating sisters through the company of Dr. Ghazala Hassan Qadri. Due to the current COVID situation, Al-Tazkiya has been moved online where we have gone global with sisters registered from all over the world! Al-Tazkiya serves as a means to gain the nearness of Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and inculcates the feeling of sisterhood and helps in the spiritual uplift of the attendees.
The final session of Al-Tazkiya 2020 began with the host Sister Sweba Majid Khan (Finance Secretary of Minhaj Sisters UK), introducing Sister Atiya Parveen for a beautiful recitation of the Holy Quran and a Nasheed. Dr Ghazala Hassan Qadri then began her final lecture for Al-Tazkiya. She highlighted our state of mental health being affected due to the reliance on social media.
After a short break, the next session commenced, the Exclusive Interview with Dr Sanam Mustafa (Molecular Pharmacologist). This was hosted by Sister Fardos Shahid and Sister Hafsah Shakeel. Firstly, Dr Sanam spoke about how she balanced moving away from home with childcare and other responsibilities.
