A Majlis at Malad

A Majlis was arranged by the NRKs (non-Residents of Kararvis) in Malad, Malony (Bombay) on the occasion of the 12 death anniversary of marhum Sayed Ghulam Hasnain Rizvi. It was recited by Maulana Zafar Abbas saheb who is the Pesh Imam of plot no. 5 Imambada. He spoke on the wives of the Prophets (a.s.) and the eiman of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.).
The Majlis started at 9.00 pm and continued till 9.40 pm.

After Majlis a discussion took place that due to price rise of the essential commodities, the sponsors are not coming forward to host Iftar. Various suggestions came up by the believers who were present. Hosting Iftar for a day costs approx. Rs. 3500/- and a single person cannot contribute such a big amount. So they usually share. But, there are poor people who want to participate with a small amount of Rs. 100/- or Rs. 200/-. For such small contributers this paltry amount with sincere intention is very great, so a donation box can be put up for the Iftar during the month of Ramadhan. This may be successful and money can be collected for at least 3/4 days Iftar. All the believers present agreed to this suggestion and was decided that very soon an Iftar Donation Box will be put up at Imambada.
Not a bad IDEA.
