On Thursday, 13th November 2014, The World Federation India Office organised a Group Discussion Session with the Youth of Mumbai. Shaikh Kumail Rajani - Head of the Islamic Education Department - was the speaker for the session.
The interactive session was attended by 16 participants and lasted for 2 hours, followed by a Q&A on the topic of The 7 Stages of Nafs.
Kashif, an attendee, expressed his gratitude with these words: “Thanks for getting this lecture arranged. It was really a session for Ibrat for me. JazakAllah!”
“The topic was very new for me and I got lots of insight on different types of nafs,” said Murtuza, another young participant. “It helped me to analyse where I am currently and how to move to a better position.”
Asad Virani, Manager of India Office, promised to hold more such events. “As per the request of the youth, such sessions will be held on regular basis, insha’Allah, especially since we have shifted to a new and bigger office facility,” he said.
After breakfast we left for the Ali-Sadr Cave. The cave is around 115 million years old and is one of the only caves in the world that has such a large lake inside it. The lake is 13km in length. We took a boat ride around the lake - the scenery was out of this world!
The Islamic Education Department of The World Federation recently published 3 books on the request of Sheikh Mahmood Fayyaz’s Najaf Office.
