The Miracle - - Font Page -

The As­so­ci­a­tion of Is­lamic Char­i­ta­ble Projects held its an­nual com­mem­o­rat­ing cel­e­bra­tion for com­ing of the New Hi­jri Year 1440 at Sur­rey Arts Cen­tre on Sun­day, Septem­ber 9th. This cel­e­bra­tion was a mar­velous ac­com­plish­ment for the AICP in par­tic­u­lar and for the Mus­lim Com­mu­nity in the Lower Main­land in gen­eral. A great ef­fort was ex­erted on the prepa­ra­tion, pre­sen­ta­tion and or­ga­ni­za­tion for the joy­ful fes­tiv­ity. The AICP mem­bers and the dis­tin­guished Is­lamic Chants Group hosted the delightful event to share their hap­pi­ness with the di­verse Mus­lim com­mu­nity at­tend­ing and par­tic­i­pat­ing. Recita­tion from the Blessed Qur’an started the cel­e­bra­tion with more than 300 at­ten­dees. The di­verse at­ten­dance en­joyed and re­acted won­der­fully to the heart mov­ing chants prais­ing Al­lah ta^ala and His blessed Mes­sen­ger Muham­mad sal­lal­lahu ^alayhi wa sal­lam. An oration about the Blessed Mi­gra­tion (Hi­jrah) of the Prophet sal­lal­lahu ^alayhi wa salam re­flected on the great in­sights and virtues of the in­ci­dent that changed the face and the course of his­tory. The au­di­ence was in­spired by lessons from the true re­liance on Al­lah, the brav­ery and the stead­fast­ness of the Com­pan­ion Bi­lal al-Habashi, who en­dured se­vere tor­ture and hu­mil­i­a­tion while ly­ing on the scorch­ing desert sands with a huge rock on his chest un­der the heat of the sun; he re­mained stead­fast to Is­lam and never blas­phemed as they wanted him to do. The guests were re­minded of the unity, the broth­er­hood, the at­tach­ment to one’s land and how the Prophet guided his com­pan­ions to that. The As­so­ci­a­tion of Is­lamic Char­i­ta­ble Projects (AICP) wishes the Mus­lim Com­mu­nity in the Lower Main­land and those all over the world a thriv­ing and flour­ish­ing New Year, one that would be filled with se­cu­rity, peace and pro­tec­tion from in­jus­tice. The AICP Cen­ters are al­ways open and wel­come any­one and every­one wish­ing to ac­quire the knowl­edge about our splen­did Re­li­gion, Is­lam. May Al­lah guide us all to strong com­mit­ment to piety, right­eous­ness, learn­ing and im­ple­ment­ing our re­li­gious du­ties, by the virtue of Prophet Muham­mad sal­lal­lahu ^alayhi wa sal­lam.
