Mahmood dresses in the traditional black hijab which covers her head and a long, loose fitting dress called an abaya. She studies the teachings of the Qur’an and the Prophet Muhammad. But unlike most traditional Muslims, Mahmood belongs to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, which also believes a Messiah came to reinforce Islam’s message of peace. [Read more]

Alhamdolillah, our 21st Regional Ijtema (June 2-3, 2012) and 1st Regional Nasiraat Camp (June 3-6, 2012) at Baitus Samee Houston TX were very successful.

By the Grace of Allah, we had a very good attendance, as Ijtem’aat for all auxiliaries took place the same weekend at Baitus Samee Mosque. We were able to start program on time, conducted and completed all Ijtema activities and concluded Ijtemaat on time.

Lajna Dallas held a meena bazaar!  

 

Lajna Dallas held a meena bazaar on Jan 29th 2012, it was a great success, with over 80 Lajna & 15 Nasirat members attending this event we raised $1550.00!  Everyone worked hard to prepare for this event; members made phone calls asking for donations, sent out reminder emails, and cooked wonderful food to be sold.

We had hot with just the right spices haleem, sizzling kebabs, aloo kebabs, savory chicken roast, fresh naan, aloo chart with mint chutney, tamarind chutney, hot steaming chicken corn soup, perfect for the cold day!  And the best part dessert -  we had gulab jamin, homemade vanilla cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes, chocolate cake, and  light fluffy vanilla pineapple cake with just the right touch of sweetness.   Our handicraft secretary hand crocheted hair bands, hair clips, and hair scrungies, which were also donated.  We had stalls for jewelry and shawaar kameez,  which were very successful in selling.

During the Meena Bazaar there were other activities to enjoy. The children played carnival games such as ring toss, knock the cups down, toss the balls into the cups, and pin the nose on the clown.  We had face painting, and henna application.  Prizes of candies were given out to those who played the carnival games.  Lajna and Nasirat all had a wonderful time shopping, eating, playing, and socializing, and if weren't for their participation and for the volunteers who helped this  event wouldn't have been such a success!

Requesting your prayers. JazakAllah
