We had a fantastic morning tea gathering in celebration of Eid with our Usrah study group on May 17th. After the weekly Tajweed classes, our members had came together to prepare a shared morning feast filled with amazing foods!

Our wonderful members had taken the liberty to meticulously prepare tea that it started to look more like feast fit for a king. We expected no less from our Usrah ladies!

It was definitely a great way to celebrate the beginning of Eid; with celebration, laughter and, of course, the abundance of food.

Big thank you to our Usrah members for making this morning as amazing as it was!
Join us every Monday from 10am at the MWASA building for our Tajweed classes; the program is entirely run by our lovely sisters who are more than welcome to help you recite the Qur’an with confidence.
Throughout the month of May, our seniors group met regularly in preparation for Ramadan.
The first gathering was for ‘Ramadan Love Letter’, a session led by Sister Nurhayati who is a graduate from Al Azhar University majoring in Shariah Islamiah. She is a recognised Asatizah by the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore. She also did her Post Graduate diploma in Islamic Law.
The number of participants exceeded expectations. All attendees were captivated and engaged in listening to the guest speaker. Sister Nurhayati explained thoroughly the revelation prescribing Ramadan and the rationale behind fasting.
Following on from Ramadan Love Letter was 3 Tajweed classes (reading the Quran with correct pronunciation and grammar), led by Sister Hanna. Some of the ladies from the seniors group enjoyed the Quran reading so much that they will in future also attend the Monday classes.
This program was a huge success; the feedback received was overwhelmingly positive, all sessions went smoothly and the group is looking forward to future similar sessions.
