The 4th Annual Fundraising Dinner of Madressah Imaam Ahmed Raza took place on the 13 of March 2015 in the Laudium Civic Centre. Alhamdulillah due to the growth of the work of the Madressah, there was a great response from the community and the hall was full with about 1000 people.
Great personalities were in attendance, such as Khalifa-e-Huzoor Mufti-e-Azam Hind Hazrat Allama Maulana Abdul Hamid Palmer and Khalifa-e-Huzoor Mufti-e-Azam Hind Hazrat Allama Maulana Ahmed Mukaddam. Various other Ulema were also in attendance, such as Maulana Faiz Ahmed Misbahi from India, Maulana Ghulam Hussain Qadri, the Imaam of Queen’s Street Masjid and Maulana Sayyid Sarfaraaz Qadri from Piet Retief.
Alhamdulillah the programme was a great success with the Duas of our Beloved Peer-o-Murshid Nabira-e-A’la Hazrat, Jaanasheen-e-Huzoor Mufti-e-Azam Hind, Huzoor Taajush Shariah, Hazrat Allama Mufti Muhammad Akhtar Raza Khan Al-Azhari (Daamat Barkaatuhumul Aaliya). There were various items performed by both girls and boys of the Madressah as well as a play on how to perform Ghusl etc for a Janaazah. Many people, young and old, learnt something from the play and it gave the community a glimpse of the practical learning besides the theoretical knowledge that the students at the Madressah obtain.
At the end there was also an awards ceremony where top students were given recognition and awarded certificates. In sha Allah this will encourage them to perform even better this year. Below are a few pictures taken during the function.
