AGOSH – providing shelter and quality education to orphans, ensuring their safe
future and turning youngsters into socially productive human beings. The aim is
to establish an institution, which has the capacity to provide for upbringing, education,
and maintenance of 500 children.
On Saturday evening, October 3rd, Minhaj ul Quran international (Bradford) hosted
a fundraising dinner for AGOSH Orphanage.
Almost 500 delegates were present for a hugely successful and enjoyable charity
event for Agosh. Almost £20,000 was raised during the event. The New Venue was the
location for the charity dinner in aid of Agosh Orphanage. Attendees from all corners
of Bradford participated in this nasheed. Hundreds of bright, energetic and devoted
children came to see their favourite nasheed artist.
The opening reception was addressed by Dr Zahid Hussain who welcomed everyone
to the nasheed extravaganza. The opening session was inaugurated with the recitation
of Holy Quran by Hafiz Mudassir Raja and recitation of Naat Shareef by Awais Hussain
and Ejaz Qadri. Talha Qadeer also took the opportunity to recite Rank Tahir in honour
of his Beloved Shaykh, Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri. Dr Zahid Hussain
welcomed Allama Muhammad Shams-ur-Rehman Assi and Muhammad Adnan Sohail from Minhaj
Welfare Foundation. They were warmly welcomed by MQI Bradford and appreciated for
their attendance of the event.
After a rapturous opening reception the main entertainment of the evening, Milad
Raza Qadri took centre stage. He recited some of his favourite nasheeds and also
some new nasheeds that he had prepared including a special poem dedicated for Agosh.
In this new 'kalaam' he praised the founder of Minhaj ul Quran, Shaykh-ul-Islam
Dr Muhammad Tahir ul Qadri. The Agosh project was launched in keeping with Shaykh-ul-Islam
vision to help the downtrodden sections of society.
The event was enjoyed by everyone present, especially the youth who also had
the opportunity to sit on the stage alongside their nasheed artist and joined in
and sang alongside him on stage.
The evening ended with an auction of some frames very kindly donated by Living
Islam. The proceeds of the auction including the money raised during the charity
event will be forwarded to Minhaj Welfare Foundation towards the Agosh project.
We’d like to express our sincere gratitude and heartfelt thanks to the SPONSORS
for their kind donations and help to make the event a success.
The amount raised will go towards providing hundreds of orphan children who need
our love, support and devotion.
