The Mission distributed Iftar/Sehri ration to 15 masaajid, boarding secondary schools and Shimo

la Tewa Borstal prison.

The community ladies volunteered in preparation of Iftar / Sehri in the masaajid.

  

This helped mu’minin in the rural villages since most of them live far away from the mosque thus, enabling them perform their night amals smoothly.

Food distribution was organized for the muslim families in rural villages and urban centres. Each family received maize meal, wheat flour and cooking oil. Over 3500 families benefitted from this distribution

Comment from beneficiary

“I am indeed grateful to Allah (s.w.t) and to the for providing me with this Iftar ration. This provision will assist me and my family during this fasting period. Currently, our village is facing food challenges due to drought; therefore this ration shall inevitably be a relief to my family and will make us fast with ease.” Charo Lewa, mu’minin – Husayni Centre, Bahakanda.

The lectures were aired on Wednesday and Fridays during the month of Ramadhan. The lectures on topical issues concerning Holy Ramadhan and fasting were delivered. Questions emanating from the audience were responded to by the speakers. This year lady speakers were introduced who delivered informative speeches addressing ladies on Hijab, Israf and Idul Fitr celebrations.

These lectures were also broadcasted on Radio Maarifa in Tanzania.

Regular 5-part-series of Hidaya ya Ramadhan radio programs was also aired on the local radio station.

Comments received from Senior Producer – Pwani FM; Mr. Salim Chiro

“Immediately after the programmes, I received several calls from different parts of the region because of the uniqueness and well researched information. Though the program duration was forty minutes, no single listener complained about the duration of the program as the lectures were flowing well and very interesting.”

Concerning the lady speakers, Salim had this to say,

“… listeners across the divide called and congratulated the speaker, after the programme went on air. I had to repeat (replay) the programs due to public demand.”

Bilal Muslim of Kenya extends its gratitude to the generous donation received from Federation of The KSI Jamaats of Africa, World Federation of KSIMC and mumineen’s all over the World that has made it possible for us to not only bring a smile on the faces of the most deserving, but also to continue with our ongoing practice to organize distribution of Iftar / Sehri assistance at Masjids in the Rural Centres and Coastal Centres.
