Report by Adnan Rashid – General Secertary Southall Jamaat
Southall Tarbiyyat Day Report – Date 26th February 2016
On Friday the 26th February 2016, National Secretary Tarbiyyat UK Mr Nisar Orchard sahib visited Southall Jama’at. The purpose of the visit was to highlight the importance of Tarbiyyat within the Jama’at as set out by our beloved Hazur “Mirza Masroor Ahmad” Khalifa-tul Masih V. The event started at 7pm Prompt with Tilawat of the Holy Qur’an by Sohraab Syed,
followed by Nazm by Osama Syam. There was a brief introduction by Southall President Mr Suhail Mehmud. The session then commenced by Mr Nisar Orchard Sahib setting the scene by
explaining the importance of Tarbiyyat and how it effects us in our every day life from a social, moral and religious standpoint. Orchard Sahib started with the basics by illustrating the statistics of how many members of the Jama’at attend the 5 daily prayers in the Mosque When these figures were displayed, Orchard Sahib asked the question on what the Jama’at Members thought of the attendance. It was apparent that the attendance of Salat is the most basic, yet the most significant area for us to improve as a Jama’at.
The session continued with much enthusiasm as Orchard Sahib delivered a 1.5 hour presentation on what makes a Successful Marriage. Nisar Sahib emphasized the role of “Taqwa” as the most essential thing in the success of the marriage. He also mentioned the rights of Men and women. He also discussed the duties and responsibilities of each other, the issues of Haq Mehr, Jahaiz, divorce and premarriage counseling.
Jama’at members had the opportunity to ask any questions, as Nisar Sahib gave an informative and interactive presentation. This was well received by the audience and the day was concluded by Isha Salat and Dinner.
By the Grace of Allah a total of 115 Jama’at members attended the function.
