PETITION TO THE HUSAINI ISLAMIC CENTRE, PETERBOROUGH IN RELATION TO DHAKIRA FOR MUHARRAM 1438 (2016)
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim.
We, the undersigned would like to express our concern and disappointment over the Husaini Islamic Centre, Peterborough's cancellation of Dhakira Tahirabai Kassamali for this coming Muharram, 1438/2016.
We strongly feel that as Dhakira Taherabai has lived in the West for many years and knows the specific issues faced by Muslims in the West, she will be much better placed to address the challenges we face.
Dhakira Taherabai would have benefitted the entire community with her knowledge. She is able to engage with the youth, reverts and other English speakers of the community who are often disregarded in ladies Muharram majaalis. At the same time she would benefit the ladies and seniors through her lectures and seminars.
We ask that the Jamaat contacts Dhakira Taherabai to reinstate her booking, so that the community can benefit from her knowledge and experience this Muharram.
We would like the Jamaat to kindly consider and respond to our petition without delay.
