On 6th March 2010, 19th Rabi-ul-Awwal 1431 AH, Essex madressa celebrated the 1484th birthday of Holy Prophet (SAWW).

It was a heartening sight from the beginning of the day when most teachers and students attended the madressa dressed in green to remember the favourite colour of Holy Prophet (SAWW).

After the break, students of Sakina and Fatima classes gathered to play game organised by Sister Farwa Jeddy in the spirit of Islam. Students of Maryam, Narjis and Zainab classes gathered to participate in a Quiz contest organised by Sister Akila Manji. Questions were based on the life history of Holy prophet (SAWW).

Students were divided into Makka, Madnia and Baqi teams. After some tense close rounds, Baqi team won by just one point in the end. Baqi team comprised of Hamza Abbas (Captain), Nayla Panjwani, Razia Bakhshi, Zahra Zaman, Mustafa Shah and Asad Naqvi.

After the quiz, salaat Zuhrain were offered at awwal waqt to recall the tradition of Prophet (SAWW). It was followed by Cake cutting and present distribution. This event was organised by Sister Shabnam Valji.

It was heartening to see children remembering Holy prophet (SAWW)’s birthday in an emphatic way. We hope that we can keep on encouraging children to quench their thirst of knowledge about our holy personalities.
