Dawat-e-walima of Minhaz Haji Alli Musa Nathaliya held today at Tankaria.



Date: 24th February 2012


Marriage, a highly respected, blessed relationship in Islam and the Sunnah of our beloved prophet Muhammed (SAW).

It is one of the most happiest moments in any person's life but also one of the most worrying matter for the parents. With increasing cost of everything in life, it becomes very hard for parents to fulfill the dreams of their loved ones in the most simplest, modest and economically viable ways.

Alhamdulillah, this is where our brothers are taking an initiative. "Tankaria Friend's Circle", a group of friends from Tankaria and our neighbour villages are getting to gether to orgaise group wedding ceremony for the needy Muslim Brothers & Sisters. Look at the flyer below. The ceremony will be held in March with initially 30 couples. All the cost wil be bear upon by this organisation. Some basic every day items and some financial assistance will be given keeping in mind the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammed (SAW).

Insha Allah

Please make Dua for the success of this program. It is very important for the success of our community. We need these kind initiatives and need to bring more programs like these in our community. These friends made the way for us to follow. May be some more will come in all our villages to serve the Ummah. May be there will be more programs to help people in need, programs to create an opportunity in the form of employment & education.

May Allah (SWT) help this kind organisation and bless all of us with health and wealth to spend & serve the need. Ameen.

Saeed Patel: An Inspiring True Story

We all know our neighbouring village Ikhar becuase of Munaf Patel, a famous cricketer who made it in Indian National Cricket Team. But, very few people know about Saeed Patel.

Let me introduce to you Saeed Patel, son of teacher husband & wife. Father was a high school teacher at Tankaria High School whose students included many famous Tankarvis. After working for quite a long period of time at Tankaria High School, his father moved to Baroda for the education of his children. His elder son is Saeed Patel. After completing his education in India, Saeed Patel decided to go to America for further education. After coming to America, he started persuing his masters in Computer Science. At the same time. he worked in Computer Distribution company. But, he always wanted to something more that that.

In 1991, when most of his friends got a job at big high rise offices in New York, he refused to do the same and rather he started a business in with his friends for a mere $20,000, a small company for the computer distribution. He had education in computer science and had ambition. People dismissed his idea but he and his friend refused and liked to take challenges. When other friends were working at big offices, these two engineers were loading trucks and driving them to deliver to their customers. There came time when their hard work paid off and they were doing really good and then came time, they went almost out of business. But, duas of parents, hard work and belief in all mighty Allah (SWT) kept them going.

And, recently in the most current year, Saeed Patel's company posted a revenue of not thousands but millions of dollars. And now, has offices in Manhattan and warehouses in New Jersey. His achievement were recognised by widely distributed Musim Newspapaer "Muslim Observer" in America.

After all these success, he did not stop there. He wanted to do something for his community. He is running several schools in his home village, helps poor students take further education, helping people affected by disasters and also wants to start an orphanage. Remember Surah in Quran "Ara aytallaji...". Allah (SWT) gave him and he is giving back to community. That is the teaching of our Prophet Muhammed (SAW).

Today, our youth has courage, tools and wants to take on big challenges but sometime missing is sort of inspiration. If you have dream and you think you can work for it, do it. We have expamles all around us, in Africa, England, Canada, USA, NZ and in our own village.

Send us the story of someone you know.

ઘઉં નો પાક ખેતરોમાં લહેરાવા લાગ્યો છે. ઘઉં ના પોંક ની સીઝન ચાલુ થઇ ગઈ છે. અને ખરી માં પણ ફસલ આવવાની ચાલુ થઇ ગઈ છે. ધીરે ધીરે ખરી ભરાઈ જશે. તથા ગરમી પણ ચાલુ થઇ ગઈ છે.

આજે આખા ટંકારીયા ગામ માટે ન્યાઝ ની દાવત નો પ્રોગ્રામ ઈબ્રાહીમભાઈ દાદુભીખા તથા તેમના સાઉથ આફ્રિકા નિવાસી ફરજંદો તરફથી રાખવામાં આવ્યો છે. ગામના નાના, મોટા, વડીલો, બુજુર્ગો, માં, બહેનો એ ન્યાઝ શરીફનો લુત્ફ ઉઠાવ્યો હતો. આ ન્યાઝ બગદાડીકમિટી દ્વારા આયોજિત કરવામાં આવ્યો છે.



જશને ઈદે મીલાદુન્નાબી સલ્લલ્લાહો અલયહે વસલ્લમ ની ઉજવણી ભારે ધામધૂમ થી થઇ રહી છે. વહેલી સવાર થી દરેક મસ્જીદો માં નાત શરીફ નો પ્રોગ્રામ શરુ થઇ ગયો હતો ત્યાર બાદ ફઝાર ની નમાજ બાદ ૭:૩૦ કલાકે ખાનકાહે ચિશ્તીયા (પાટણવાળા બાવા સાહેબ) ના ઘરે થી જુલુસ નીકળી આખા ગામ માં ફરી જામા મસ્જીદ માં સંપન્ન થઇ ગયું હતું. જુલુસ માં સરકાર કી આમદ મરહબા ના નારાથી ગલીયો ગુંજી ઉઠી હતી. જામા મસ્જીદમાં બાલ મુબારક ની જીયારત કરાવવામાં આવે છે.

સરકાર કી આમદ મરહબા.



માશા અલ્લાહ ! જશને ઈદે મીલાદુન્નાબી સલ્લલ્લાહો અલયહે વસલ્લમ ની ધૂમ ગલી ગલી મચી છે. આજ રોજ લહેરી ફળિયાના નવયુવાનો એ મોટા પાયે ન્યાઝ બનાવી છે. અને ન્યાઝ તકસીમ કરવાનો પ્રોગ્રામ અસર ની નમાઝ બાદ થી ચાલુ થઇ ગયો છે.

જશને ઈદે મીલાદુન્નાબી સલ્લલ્લાહો અલયહે વસલ્લમ ઝીન્દાબાદ.
