Women's Ijtema ends through Akheri Munajat
A three-day Mahila Ijtema (women's congregation) ended on Sunday with Akheri Munajat (concluding prayer) in Netrakona district, seeking prosperity, peace, happiness and unity of Muslim Ummah.
The Tablighi congregation was held at Nandipur village in Sadar upazila, and concluded around 10:00am.
Mahila Ijtema's chief Murubbi (guardian), Khadiza Begum, a resident of Triyoshi village, conducted this year's Akheri Munajat.
Earlier on Friday, the three-day Ijetam began with Jumaa prayer.
Nandipur resident Tara Banu being inspired by her husband Ismat Ali, a Tablighi devotee, started the Ijtema at their home with surrounding women 40 years ago aiming to deliver teaching and guidelines of Islam including 'Imaan and Aamal' (faith and practice) to the people.
Ali Osman Zakaria, son of the woman, has been organising the Mahila Ijtema every year after her mother's death.
Thousands of woman devotees from different areas of Netrakona, Mymensingh and Kishoreganj districts join in the Ijtema every year.
