DEDICATED SERVICES OF OUR MULYANIS (ZAKIRAS)

When our forefathers landed on the Eastern shores of Africa, they settled in the towns like Lamu, Mombasa, Zanzibar, Dar Es Salaam, Bagamoyo and Kilwa, among others, some of them ventured into the interior and decided to live in small settlements and villages. At that time, we did not have Mulyanis or Zakiras from India or Pakistan to cater for the needs of the women of our Community. Many of our own ladies came forward to cater for the women folk by reciting the Majalis and carry out functions necessary for the spiritual needs of the women of the Community.

The dedicated Mulyanis did great work of reading and studying the Majlis books in Urdu and delivering in simple language to our women folk. They also translated the Majlis and delivered them in Kutchi and Gujarati. They performed these religious duties on honorary basis. Through generations, these Mulyanis trained the younger among them and to date we continue to benefit from these highly dedicated Mulyanis, who continue in the service of our Aimma A.S. and the Community.
