Dear sisters, brothers, and children in Islam:
As Salamu-Alaikum-wa-Rahmatullah-wa-Barakatehu. It is with great enthusiasm and divine spiritual inspiration, the MFGO coordination committee cordially invites you and the family to the upcoming gathering scheduled to be held on February 17, 2018 (Saturday) at the Chapman Mills Community Building, 424 Chapman Mills Drive, Ottawa, ON, K2J 0M7.
There will be (as usual) a pot-luck lunch preceding the main event.
In this month there will be a talk on a very fundamental issue related to Understanding the Islamic Holy Book, the Quran al Karim in one’s Mother Language and as such the topic is entitled as “Understanding Quran in Mother Language” and the talk will be presented by an invited speaker who is known in our community for his intriguing and enlightening speeches, he is no other than Dr. Tanvir Sami (Tanvir bhai). The talk will perfectly match the theme of this month which is celebrated as the International Mother Language Day (21st February).
In addition to the discussion on the above feature topic, there will also be a short presentation by Br. Tarek Ali and the MFGO children to commemorate our glorious language movement “Omor Ekushe (21st February)“; now (under the auspices of UNESCO) observed as “International Mother Language Day” worldwide. We would encourage everyone to wear matching clothing (apparel) to fit this national day of Bangladesh which is a combination of Black and White dresses.
