SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI
Srinagar, Aug 12: For women who aspire to know more about Islam and its importance in day-to-day life including domestic affairs, this could be the choice venue.
At a time when Islamic preaching is often confined to Masjids and Darul Ulooms, often seen as male bastion, a special lecture series for women is picking up at this City mall near Barzulla chowk where classes are held at state-of-the-art classrooms while entry is restricted to females.
Wife of prominent Islamic scholar Molvi Adnan Nadwi is holding the short term course for women at Safe Hands, a prominent dental clinic at Barzulla. The clinic people have offered their vacant space for hosting of the lecture series.
The course, which has been witnessing an unusual surge in number of aspirants, as per its organizers eyes to educate “such daughters, sisters and other female folk who aspire to know more about Islamic values.”
“Currently we don’t have such institutions which would cater to females so we planned to create the facility for short term course and things picked up,” said Nadwi, a commerce graduate who did his specialization in Islamic studies from prestigious Nudwatul Ulema Lucknow. His Aalimah wife, who is offering the course, is alumni of the women wing of the Nudwatul Ulema.
A woman medico from south City who has been attending the classes said: “My outlook has changed a lot after attending the informative classes… I never knew all this.”
“For women there’s even spiritual reward for mopping and cleaning utensils provided we know the Islamic way of doing it,” she said.
