The new chapter encouraged the sisters to arrange ‘Halqa-e-Darood’ at their homes with their families and friends and to introduce it to young girls so that we all should build a strong relation of love and respect with our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW). At the end, ‘Salaat-o-salam’ and dua was made. It was a successful programme in every respect. Food was served at the end to all the participants.
