ANNUAL REPORT (AUGUST 2013 – JULY 2014)

Weekly Majalis (Thursdays)

Every Thursday evening, the MIC members gather at the center for the weekly majalis. The majalis program includes recitation of Surah-e-Yaseen, Hadith al Kisa, Dua-e-Kumail and a short lecture on any topic (religious/social/academic) by any one member. Since the center is now equipped with its own laptop and projector, presenter can conveniently display his/her lecture on the projector.

Weekly Quran Tafseer Sessions (Tuesdays)

The center had started a new routine on Tuesdays whereby the members meet up for recitation of Dua Tawassul followed by Tafseer of the Holy Qur’an. During every session, one member comes prepared and conducts the Tafseer of Quranic verses followed by the discussion on the same. This initiative is quite fruitful as the members get a chance to discuss the words of Allah (SWT), and contemplate on them.

Kushali and Wafaat of the Ahlulbayt (a.s.)

The birth anniversaries of the Aeema-e-Tahireen (A.S.) are celebrated in the center. Every kushali program would begin with Hadith al Kisa, Qasida/Munajat followed by a short talk by any member. After the program, the center would hold group activities like short quizzes, etc.
 



The death anniversaries of the members of the holy household are commemorated at the center. The majlis included recitation of marsias, followed by talk on the Ahlulbayt (as) by any of the member, or projecting a pre-recorded majlis & lecture by some renowned scholars.

Amaal for the Oppressed

In September, an Amaal program was held to pray for the oppressed people around the world, especially in context to the worsening situation in Syria and Iraq.

The program proceeded with a talk by Br. Kumailabbas Dewji who highlighted the situation in Syria, Iraq along with many other Muslim countries. He also stressed as to what we can do as individuals and as a community. The program ended with the recitation of Dua Jawshan-e-Sagheer.
