TARBIYAH DEPARTMENT OF ICNA SISTERS WING
Alhamdulillah with the grace and mercy of Allah we were able to expand the Tarbiyah department into two Usrahs this year. Usratul Maria and Usratul Ayesha both are sub-committees of the Tarbiyah department.
“Usrah” in Arabic means a group of people which strengthens each other, has a complimentary bond amongst its members. Ayesha and Maria (May Allah be pleased with them) are of course derived from the names of the Wives of the Prophet Muhammad SAW.
Usratul Ayesha includes most of our current Tarbiyah Setup which is mainly in Urdu language and Usratul Maria is the same setup in the Mainstream English Language which still in its early stages.
Why? We are taking a Project-based approach to be able to properly establish something new instead of keeping it a side thing/ part of our work. Also different scope of the work is another reason for taking this approach.
§ To invite mankind to submit to the Creator by using all means of communications.
§ To motivate Muslims to perform their duty of being witnesses unto mankind by their words and deeds.
