Tableegh activities in Kathmandu, Nepal
A diverse number of programs and events, with the primary focus of external tableegh, were organised in Kathmandu, Nepal, during April, May and June 2019 by Moulana Mohammed Zainul Abedin, of which the main objectives were to spread the pivotal message of the holy household of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and to urge Muslims to return to practicing Islam.
Numerous Shia Religious programs were arranged over the past three months, including Amal – e – Shabe Barat held on 15th Shaban, Jumah prayers consistently hosted almost every Friday, and daily iftar provided during the month of Ramadan. Several other religions were interacted with and involved in events, including the Celebration of Nepali Mother’s Day with Nepali Hindus and Buddhist Mother’s on 4th May 2019, and activities, such as the distribution of iftar rations to refugees in Kathmandu, highlighting the generous personality of Islam. Bringing peace and harmony among the different religious communities in the country, the Brotherhood Iftar Party was organised by the Shia youth wing of the Islamic Center with the help of Orison Charitable Trust. Despite the unfortunate arrival of a severe hailstorm, around 120 individuals from various communities were gathered for the event.
Social media was frequently utilized during this period, consisting of the first Nepali Shia website promoting the religion of Islam, which would even benefit Shias in taqayyah (in disguise amongst others). The first Nepali Shia Account was also devised to promote and express Ahlul Bayt and Islamic messages, whilst tableegh was exercised through regular lectures and addressed gatherings on countless occasions. YouTube, WhatsApp and Twitter were also made effective use of to spread the message of Islam to the world, especially through youngsters, addressing real life problems and providing practical solutions by referring to Ayat from the Holy Qur’an and Hadith.
