London Region organised a tremendously successful Tabligh Ashra between 23rd January 2015 and 1st February 2015.
With the Charlie Hebdo shooting incident still very much fresh in the mind and anti-Muslim feelings and attacks on the rise, it was felt that the best way to deal with this state of affairs would be to enlighten the public about the real character of our Noble Prophet Muhammad ﷺ – sent as the mercy for all mankind. A plan was made for every Majlis in the region to set up Tabligh stalls on every single day of the 10-day long Ashra.
To amplify the coverage of this peaceful message, areas were covered both within the region as well as outside it, especially in Central London which attracts large number of the public local and tourist alike. The areas covered by the teams were Oxford Street, Knightsbridge, Edgware Road, Shepherd’s Bush, Hammersmith, Fulham, Putney, Clapham, Hampton Court, Sheen, Roehampton, Raynes Park, Kingston, Morden, Wandsworth, Wimbledon and Hounslow. The stalls were setup with banners being setup additionally to highlight to visitors the complimentary book “Life of Muhammad” ﷺ.
Number of Ansãr who participated in this blessed scheme from the following Majalis is 718, Inner Park:16, Mosque:79, Mosque West:18, Putney:75, Raynes Park:22, Roehampton:22, Roehampton Vale:21, Southmead:16, Southside:17, Wandsworth:15, West Hill:8, Wimbledon:8 and Wimbledon Park:11.
By the grace of Allah, 8,181 books of “Life of Muhammad” ﷺ were distributed along with 4,326 copies of “World Crisis & Pathway to Peace”. All 13 Majalis of the region set up stalls.
Apart from stalls, Ansãr brothers used other opportunities to spread the message. For instance, a brother had medical appointments with his GP and in a hospital and managed to give 15 books to the staff.
