Dawoodi Bohras Host Quran Haflat Program to Mark Ramadan

This is the second Haflat program organised by the Dawoodi Bohra community in Bhopal in the past four months.

To mark the start of the holy month of Ramadan, the Dawoodi Bohra community of Bhopal organised a ‘Haflat al Quran al Majeed’ program on 21st March at their community centre in Aliganj. Around 20 leaders from the Muslim community were among the 35 guests in attendance.

The program began with recitations of Quran Majeed by Qari Ismail Mullawala, followed by a welcome and introductory speech by His Holiness’ representative in Bhopal, Zohair Shakir.

An explanatory speech about Mahad al-Zahra, an institute running under the auspices of Aljamea-tus-Saifiyah Arabic Academy with campuses in India and abroad, was delivered by a faculty member from the institute.

The 20 leaders from various Muslim communities were then presented with a unique book of about ten types of Qira’at (recitations) of the Holy Quran compiled by Shahzada Husain Burhanuddin, son of His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin.

The book has illustrations of all 10 Qiraat in the form of text, and each page bears a QR code which enables listening to Qiraat of that particular page.

Maulana Haroon, President of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind, Madhya Pradesh, was the Chief Guest of the program. In his address, he lauded the Bohra community for organising Quran programs and adherence to Islam's tenets. He also highlighted how such socio-cultural events promote unity and strengthen the bond of brotherhood among Muslims.

This is the second ‘Haflat al Quran al Majeed’ program organised by the Dawoodi Bohra community in Bhopal in the last four months. Various haflat and hifz (memorisation of Quran) programs have been organised by the community across the globe.

The leader of the Dawoodi Bohras, His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, is making constant efforts to expand the horizons of the hifz movement in the community. In several sermons, Syedna Saifuddin has expressed a wish that “there be at least one hafiz (one who commits the entire Quran to memory) in every household.”
