HADAF (GOAL) for year 2014:
The goal for this year was inspired by the
following Quranic verse.
He says, “My Rabb, grant me the grace that I may thank you for the favors which you have bestowed on me and on my parents, and I may do good deeds that will please you, and grant me good (righteous) children. Surely I turn to you in repentance and surely I am of those who are Muslims.” Surah Ahqaaf ayah 15
In the light of this beautiful Dua, our goal for this year is:
“Grooming our next generation and reshaping our selves to please Allah swt”.
To achieve this objective all departments will do their planning by keeping following points in their mind:
The intention behind every deed and action should be only to please Allah. Inspire our children and youth to do righteous deeds.
Educate our members and teach them skills to work with our youth.
Create a welcoming atmosphere and special projects in ICNA to attract the youth.
Tarbiyah Department:
In the light of the above verse chosen for this year’s goal, the Tarbiyah Department will focus and educate the members on importance of family values, being thankful and grateful to Allah for all the blessings He showers on us and our families, to do all good deeds to please Allah, educate our children and youth to become good Muslims. MGAs and members will be encouraged to read books in English.
Supervision: This department will be under the direct supervision of the President. Chapters and regions nazm will be responsible to implement the planning and task assigned by the Tarbiyah department in their units and cities.
