Following my brief visit to Gujarat in January 2014 when I had visited a number of madaris in Mahuva and Bhavnagar, it was felt that a follow-up visit for a longer period was required.
Muharram functions were held daily for both ladies and gents at the Islamic Centre in Kathmandu, Nepal. A total of around 150 attended the daily programmes. In order to cope with everyone attending, the ladies’ programme would start in the afternoon, followed by the gents in the evening.
The programme followed the process, starting with Ziyarat Ashura, poems in Urdu and Persian, lecture by their Resident Alim Maulana Zainul Abideen, eulogy recitation, latmiyyah and ending with dinner.
We are honoured to say that since the establishment of this Islamic Centre by The World Federation, this was the first Muharram Ashra that was held in the capital city of Nepal.
The sessions were facilitated by Sister Mehjabeen Rahim, GCSE Coordinator of The World Federation’s Islamic Education Department. The sessions were tailored to deliver a variety of teaching techniques, resources, and marking methodologies.
La Ziyarat spirituelle est une Ziyarat du cœur, dans le cœur et par le cœur.
