» EDUCATIONAL SEMINARS FOR MOULAVI STUDENTS

Senior moulavis brought tour notice the increasing trend of moulavis passing out, being lured into different ways, away from sunnath jamaath. They requested our support to arrest this trend. After many discussions, a program to conduct educational seminars in various parts of the country was proposed.The seminars will be conducted by academically qualified, learned ulemas and the subjects would be confined to the concepts of sunnath jamaath. The first seminar was held in Galle with nearly 140 participants from 14 Arabic Colleges in the Southern Province. The second seminar was held at Hotel Malapura in Peradeniya with over 70 students from 5 Arabic Colleges. The third Seminar was held at Hotel Chathuna in Batticaloa for madrasas/Arabic Colleges in the Eastern Province. Over 100 students from 9 colleges participated.

In addition to above a seminar was held for medical students of the Rajarata University at the CTC Reception Hall in Anuradhapura. 55 medical students and others from the community participated. These seminars have been well received and appreciated. There is an increasing demand and request made to conduct similar programs in Kattankudy, Jaffna and in Colombo. However, due to lack of financial support we are unable to implement same. We look forward to your support to move forward.

» DA'AWA WORK

Da'awa activities were initiated in 2011 with a 26 member delegation visiting the Eastern Province. Eminent Ulemas accompanied us on our visits to Kattankudy, Aryampathy, Eravur, Oddamavaddy, Vallaichenai, Batticaloa and Polonnaruwa. This visit motivated the people in these areas (who were badly affected by a 30-year ethnic conflict) and sunnath jamaath activities were reactivated with enthusiasm.

Thereafter we visited the Southern Province covering Hambantota, Bolana, Nalagama, Dickwella, Weligama, Matara and Galle. Here too, we were well received and created a positive impact in the areas visited. In April 2015 we visited the Central Province and covered the areas of Batupitiya, Gelioya and Gampola. The community expressed their deep appreciation. In 2016 we visited the Eastern Province again and delivered bayaans, conducted zikhr and mowlood at Eravur, Kattankudy and Aryampathy.

Only those eligible for zakath are given and every effort is made in the process to help them earn a living. Recipients have been from various parts of the country – Eravur, Kattankudy, Galle, Colombo, Beruwela.

The Association organizes an Ifthar every year inviting the membership and our donors. A bayaan is also delivered. We also supported some ifthar programs in the Eastern Province and these programs are being continued with their own funds.

Prophet Muhammed's (pbuh) birthday is celebrated every year with the recital of mowlood, bayaan followed by dinner. A large and representative gathering grace the occasion. We have also been supporting Meelad celebrations in the Eastern Province, courtesy of Br. Hanif Yusuf.
