Muslim Women Organisation (MWO) brought Eid memories live among the Muslim women as they organised an eventful Eid Party on August 10, 2014 at Al-Furqan Islamic Centre in Chirimba Blantyre.
The party started about an hour late from its schedule time due to the general tendency of the people to turn up late at functions.
The event, however, according to the chairlady of the organising committee Sifati Shabalala, was a success that women around Blantyre and surrounding areas patronised in big numbers to rejoice and enjoy the celebrations of the auspicious day together.
“We feel good when we meet and share ideas together as Muslim women. So, apart from eating and drinking, it increases our faith,” said Shabalala.
In fact, the event was supposed to take place at the Eid day but it was postponed due to the another big function Malawi Muslim Awards ceremony which took place the same day at College of Medicine Sports Complex where the organisation was supposed to attend.
The event was spiced up by award winning Nasheed artist Ishmael Katawala who lifted the souls of the joyful women with his most popular nasheeds such Msilamu, Jannah Yanu and the newly releases track Arahman.
Indeed the Muslim women were very happy and you could tell this trough their faces and actions as some of them danced Katawala’s nasheeds showing that the meaningful and well conveyed messages were penetrating into their nerves.
Jannah Yanu Nasheed was requested by the women about seven times with some still insisting the artist should not leave the stage.
Among the activities were drama and zikir performed by the Muslim women themselves.
