Minhaj Women League Norway proudly presents An-Nasiha, a transformative and ongoing monthly series aimed at reconnecting norwegian muslim women with knowledge and fostering moral, spiritual, and educational growth. Rooted in the teachings of Minhaj ul Quran, An-Nasiha embodies the spirit of providing sincere advice and guidance to empower women in various aspects of life. An-Nasiha started 25th of february and is still ongoing.
Origins and Objectives
An-Nasiha signifies a significant initiative by Minhaj Women League Norway to fulfill a core objective of Minhaj ul Quran – the dissemination of knowledge and the nurturing of a strong commitment to learning. The series derives its name from "nasiha," a term that resonates with all, symbolizing the act of offering counsel for spiritual and moral benefit based on the teachings of The Prophet (peace be upon him).
Design and Implementation
Conceived in collaboration with Alama Muhammad Iqbal Fani Sahib, An-Nasiha bridges the gap between women and knowledge. The dynamic duo of Executive Member of MWL Norway, Amna Aslam, and General Secretary of MWL, Iqra Mushtaq Khan, have been instrumental in shaping the dars structure, topics, and content, tailored to address the unique needs of women in Europe. Each monthly session spans two hours, including recitations, naats, Alama Fani Sahib's main discourse, and an interactive Q&A session, fostering open dialogue.
Content and Approach
The inaugural dars centered around the theme "Ghaflat ki Neend se Uthna," setting the tone for subsequent sessions. An-Nasiha has explored everyday challenges and inner battles faced by individuals, such as envy (hasd), ghussa (anger), hypocrisy (riyakari), arrogance (takabbur), and resentment (badgumani). What sets An-Nasiha apart is its unique speech structure, offering an introduction to each topic, delving into its characteristics, and culminating with practical advice that resonates with ordinary individuals. Attendees also receive azkaar (remembrances) and guidance to navigate internal struggles.

Impact and Growth

The series has enriched participants' understanding and contributed to the community's growth.
