BEHN Annual Milad-un-Nabi
Los Angeles , CA : Bazm-e-Hamd-o-Naat(BEHN) has announced that its annual Milad-un-Nabi will be held on March 6th, 2011 between 5pm-10pm. It will take place at Cal Poly Pomona’s Bronco Student Center.
In a press release, BEHN stated that “each year we see more and more families joining us and we work our hardest to spread the word, welcome the community, and share our event with everyone. Every year about 400-500 community members attend and we would love to see the numbers grow.
“BEHN is a group of Pakistani families that strives each and every year to put on a Milad-un-Nabi to commemorate the birth of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWS). We encourage the youth to get involved in this tradition so that it is passed on from generation to generation. We are not a politically charged/motivated group; we are simply a group whose focus is to facilitate and encourage youth participation and to pass on the tradition of Milad-un-Nabi to our community and future generations.
This year we are very excited to have:
* Qari Salim Ghazali
• Syed Abrar Hussain: The great Naat Khwan from Pakistan. He has won many awards and honors from the Pakistani government. His voice and heart are testament to his love of the Prophet Muhammad(SAWS).
• Zahra Noorani: She is a world-renowned Naat Khawan from Virginia, USA.
• Dr. Ahmad Sakr will also be giving a speech on the importance of Milad-un-Nabi in Islam. He is a world-renowned Islamic scholar, author of many Islamic books, and a great speaker.
• Pakistan Consul General Ms. Riffat Masood will also grace the event.
