Netherlands: Chand Raat celebrated by MSL (The Hague)
By the Grace of Almighty Allah (SWT) and His Beloved Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) Minhaj Sisters League (The Hague, Netherlands) organized a Chaand Raat. For the very first time, MSL organized a Chaand Raat. This event took place two days before Eid-ul Adha on Friday, 9th of September. The program started with recitation of Quranic verses and nasheed together. The participants took the opportunity to discuss the Niyah/intention behind the concept of chaand Raat and Eid-ul-Adha.
There was also the possibility to decorate hands with henna on one of the special stalls. The little girls and sisters enjoyed this very much. There was enough food and drinks for everyone and the atmosphere was cheerful. We look back at a wonderful evening with a blend of celebration and knowledge.
