Report by Rafik Safir, President Surbiton Jamaat
Report of Tarbiyyat Day, Surbiton: 15th March, 2015
Alhamdolillah Surbiton Jamaat held it’s first Tarbiyyat Forum on Sun 15th March at the Tolworth Girls school.
The attendance was approximately 60 members including Ansar, Khuddam, Atfal, Lajna and Nasirat.
The programme began with Congregational Zuhr prayers. This was followed by the main session where we were honoured by the presence of UK Tarbiyyat secretary Nisar Orchard Sahib. He conducted proceedings in a very interesting and interactive manner. He actively involved all members, young and old as well as Lajna. In particular the young boys were asked questions and given sweets and treated very well by the speaker.
There was a slide presentation explaining to all members the meaning and essence of Tarbiyyat as it affects us a in our daily lives and behaviours.
Nisar sahib encouraged and requested the need for regular Tarbiyyat activities in all Jamaats.
There was a break in the session where lunch was served. The session ended with a vote of thanks by Sadr Sahib Rafik Safir followed by Congregational Asr prayers.
The feedback afterwards was extremely positive.
It was noted there was not good enough attendance from Khuddam members – we may need to address this for future.
