On 7th March 2021 the management of Bilal Muslim Mission of Tanzania lead by the Chief of Operations, Br. Hafidhi Mansour visited Ikwiriri Bilal Centre in Rufiji District for the purposes of viewing the progress on Tabligh activities as well as community development programs. Together with the COO, the Administrative Manager (Br. Rajab Shaaban), Bookshop Manager and Distance Learning Coordinator (Sis. Swaum Chega) and a representative from the Bilal Ladies Committee (Sis. Fatma Hashim) visited the centre. During the visit the team met with Ikwiriri Women’s Committee together with Madrasa and Nursery students and teachers.
The Madrasa at Ikwiriri centre has more than 60 students attending on a regular basis. The COO and his team succeeded in meeting and reviewing the progress of Madrasa students as well as their challenges.
Ikwiriri centre has a nursery school with more than 40 students. The nursery was resumed by the current management in 2019 after being closed for almost 2 years and it has progressed well with a lot of effort from the teachers. To encourage the efforts shown by the teachers, the management of BMMT provided them with additional teaching materials including books and charts.
MEETING WITH FEMALE COMMUNITY MEMBERS
The visiting team also managed to meet with the female community members of Ikwiriri centre and discussed their challenges and progress in their religious development and learning. It was reported that the progress in Ikwiriri is going well as far as the social and economic development of women in the community especially since the economic assistance provided by BMMT in September 2019.
The Female community members of Ikwiriri were excited by the visit from Bilal Headquarters and promised to take deliberate measures to do more activities especially in Tabligh, social and economic development. Additionally, they promised to attend Madrasa as well as encourage others to participate and attend as well.
We pray to Allah (s.w.t.) to give us Tawfiq to serve the community
