Prominent Islamic organisation, NASFAT, has banned its branches from holding December 31st/January 1 cross over tahajjud.
This was contained in a memo obtained by iWitness NG.
Read the memo below:
From:The Mission Board Secretariat
To:All Missioners(Branch,Assistant, zonal and National)
Subject:December 31st/January 1st cross over Tahajjud program. A Reminder of its prohibition.
Salam alaykum wa rahmatul laah wa baarakatuhu,
I write to remind us all that the above-mentioned type of tahajjud is not one of NASFAT programmes and thus no Branch of NASFAT Society is allowed to hold such in any manner.
It has come to the notice of the office of the Chief Missioner that some branches do organize this tahajjud under the disguise that they are holding other NASFAT-accepted socio-religious functions. This is not acceptable and I have the instruction of the CM to inform us that any Missioner that does otherwise will be sanctioned appropriately.
Missioners having any challenge on this in their Branches are to bring this to the notice of the Chief Missioner through the National Dawah Officer/Mission Board Secretary.
May Allah ease our affairs.
National Dawah Officer/Secretary,Mission Board
