13th Islamic Learning Course for Women Students

Allah Almighty has provided the perfect code of life through the Holy Prophet (PBUH) in the form of Islam. There is not a single aspect of humanity which has been left unguided by it. Through the Qur’an and its practical manifestation in the form of the life of our Holy Prophet (PBUH), Islam has provided a perfect way to conduct ourselves in this world and to be successful in the world hereafter.

Islam has given a privileged position to women and favored her with the sublime position in accordance to her physical and spiritual structure. Yet today she is unfamiliar with the most basic concepts of life, or and is quite simply not aware of her purpose of life. In this dark age of humanity, the founder of Minhaj ul Qur’an International, Dr. Mohammad Tahir ul Qadri had done a mountain of work for the revival of Islam, in particular empowering women with knowledge about their true status within society.

The Islamic Learning Course is one of the links in a chain designed by Minhaj ul Qur’an Women League to impart valuable knowledge to women. In this training course, students come from all over Pakistan to attend this beautiful training session for fifteen days. The main purpose of this course is to guide the young generation of sisters about Islam and to give them training about the basic features of life and Insh’Allah make them become aware that they are the most important part of society. Special preparations have been made for this course. Highly qualified teachers from the platform of Minhaj ul Qur’an International are engaged, who deliver lectures on their pre-decided topics. The course is arranged in the building of Minhaj College for Women. All team members of Women league Pakistan offer their services for the whole fifteen days. Senior sisters of the Women league are also present here during the camps to make it successful in the light of their past excellent experience.
