“This was the most beneficial seminar of my life”. – Mukhtar Husein Bhojani

“Such programs are very beneficial for the community and must be repeated on regular intervals. Congratulations to The World Federation Team” – Asghar Bhimani

“This workshop must be done on a larger scale to include non-muslims so that they can understand Islamic Ethics. This will be a good tool for Tableegh” – Sayyed Gulam Husain Abidi.

“Excellent Program. Kindly conduct more such programs in all other cities too” – Gulamali Meghani

Asad Virani, Manager of The World Federation India Office says: “I was surprised with the overwhelming response of the community in Bhavnagar. Thanks to Sayyed Ehsan and Br. Irfan for facilitating and delivering the course. Special thanks to Muhsin uncle Dharamsi, Shaykh Mustafa Bhurani, Br. Reza Jivani, Br. Shafi Lokhandwala and Br. Abbas Vasaya (the team members in Bhavnagar) to make this program a success. We have received an invitation from Ahmedabad as well as Sangli Jamaat to organise similar workshops there”

Shaykh Komail Rajani, Head of Islamic Education Department says: “Business plays a vital role in our community. When business gets integrated with spiritual principles, it yields real prosperity. A vast majority of the chapters of Islamic Jurisprudence deal with business matters. I wish the community would regard these chapters as important as the chapters of Ibadat (Prayers) and Fasting etc.”
