On Oc­to­ber 27, Darul Qur’an In­sti­tute of Islamic Stud­ies held its 7th An­nual Jal­sah and Grad­u­a­tion Cer­e­mony at Royal King Palace Hall in Sur­rey. This year Al­ham­dulil­lah with the help of Al­lah and the sup­port of the com­mu­nity, 3 stu­dents grad­u­ated as Hafidh ul Qur’an. They are Hafidh Khubeb son of Mr. & Mrs. Iqbal Pathan, Hafidh Am­maar son of Mr. and Mrs. Zakir Ghogawala and Hafidh Ahmed son of Mr. and Mrs. Mo­hammed Kam­ran. It was an evening full of beau­ti­ful and in­spir­ing recita­tions of the Qur’an, Nasheeds, Salat-alan-Nabi, plays and speeches on Islamic top­ics all per­formed by the stu­dents of the Madrasah. Shaykh Mo­hammed Oves Ab­dul Wa­hab and Shaykh Mo­hammed Anees Ab­dul Wa­hab ac­knowl­edged the sac­ri­fices made by stu­dents and their par­ents in the pur­suit of Islamic ed­u­ca­tion. They then ex­plained that not only are the stu­dents of the Madrasah taught Islamic stud­ies such as learn­ing to read the Qur’an cor­rectly with Ta­jweed, me­moriz­ing verses of the Qur’an, pray­ing and liv­ing our lives ac­cord- ing to the peace­ful prac­tices of Prophet Muham­mad (pbuh), but they are also taught to be law abid­ing, peace­ful, pro­duc­tive and con­tribut­ing mem­bers of Cana­dian so­ci­ety. The main event of the night was the Khat­mul-Qur’an, the grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony of com­ple­tion of the Qur’an. The grad­u­ates be­gan and con­tin­ued their Islamic Stud­ies with Shaykh Oves and Shaykh Anees and af­ter years of sac­ri­fices and hard work these stu­dents com­pleted Tah­feedh-ulQur’an. One amaz­ing and remarkable as­pect is that the stu­dents com­pleted their Tah­feedh-ul-Qur’an while go­ing to school just like other boys of their age. Many Schol­ars of Is­lam at­tended and graced the event with their pres­ence. Guests from the lower main­land and guests from Toronto, from the .S, from the nited King­dom, from In­dia and other cities at­tended the event. The spe­cial guest speaker of the evening was Shaikh Riad Ouarzazi from Toronto. He spoke about the im­por­tance of seek­ing knowl­edge and en­cour­aged the com­mu­nity to sup­port the In­sti­tute. Dig­ni­taries that at­tended the event in­cluded MP Sukh Dhali­wal and lead­ers of lo­cal Mus­lim or­ga­ni­za­tions. They rec­og­nized the pos­i­tive im­pact of the In­sti­tute in the com­mu­nity. Shaykh Mo­hammed Oves Ab­dul Wa­hab in­formed the au­di­ence that the In­sti­tute suf­fers fi­nan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties and is in need of as­sis­tance to carry on the many pro­grams and ser­vices the In­sti­tute is of­fer­ing. He then ex­plained that the In­sti­tute is com­mit­ted to fi­nan­cial trans­parency and the com­mu­nity is wel­come to see the fi­nan­cial records of the In­sti­tute. Al­ham­dulil­lah with the help of Al­lah and gen­eros­ity of the com­mu­nity $32,250 in pledges and $31,061 in cash and cheques was do­nated. At the con­clu­sion of the event the founders of the In­sti­tute, Shaykh Mo­hammed Oves Ab­dul Wa­hab and Shaykh Mo­hammed Anees Ab­dul Wa­hab thanked the guests and vol­un­teers and a sump­tu­ous din­ner was en­joyed by all in at­ten­dance.
