Nightly Muharram Programs 2016 Print
Salaamun Alaykum,
The programs for the month of Muharram for this year will be held at the 81 Hollinger Crescent, Kitchener, ON, N2K 2Y8 (IHS Centre) every night beginning on Sunday, October 2nd at 8:00 PM. We will start with Quran, Marthiya, Majlis, Matam and Ziyarat-e-Ashura.Our speaker for this year is Br. Akil Karim and his topic for this year is based on Surah Hujarat 49:12 - The Concept of Brotherhood in Islam. 
 
Similar to last year,  we are beginning the programs this year at 8pm for 2 reasons.  First of all, Salat time is later this year,  unlike in previous years; and secondly, the IHS Centre is also being rented by the Arab community as well as our Jamaat, and thus we had to co-ordinate with them, for them to finish their programs and only then can we begin our programs.

Anyone wishing to recite Quran, Marthiya (in ANY LANGUAGE) , Nawha (in ANY LANGUAGE) or Ziyarat Ashura nightly are requested to contact Sy. Taha Taqvi or Br. Zulfikar (Zul) Khimji, or fill in your name on the sign up sheets.Anyone wishing to sponsor tabarruk or food for any of the nights of Muharram is requested to contact Sr. Toba Anwar. There will be children's classes during the main program for children aged 4 to 8 yrs - in the library and classes will be conducted by Sr. Shayda for the first 4 nights and then by Sr. Nelofar and Sr. Manija for the remainder of the nights.Children aged 9 years and up will be requested to stay in the main hall for the program.  On both sides, the EC has appointed certain volunteers to maintain silence and also to ensure that the kids are in the main hall, and other order is kept during the majalis- please respect them and listen to their recommendations.DONATIONS for Muharram/Safar and for general running of YOUR community are open and we humbly request everyone to generously donate towards this cause. We will have envelopes with donation forms available for people to fill out with their name, address and other information and donations can be put into these envelopes and given in the form of a cheque or cash.

Our donation target for this year is $15000- please note that this is for us to cover the cost of the weekly programs for the entire year, and the expenses include: Muharram speaker, hadiyas for speakers throughout the year, rental of the IHS building, supplies, etc....
