السالم عليكن و رحمة اهلل و بركاته
Having the status of being Muslims, on the Day of Judgment
we will be accountable for what we have been provided by our
creator Allah (SWT) and we will be held responsible for our time,
actions, substance and amenities. In order to fulfill our objectives,
we should worry how we spend each and every moment of our lives
to accomplish its purpose, so that when death approaches it will be
easier to face the subjugation.
To take advantage of the passing time and to accomplish
our task, planning is essential. Whether we work individually or in
jamah, it is hard to manage our lives without proper planning.
The annual planning is part of the Organizational By-laws of
ICNA Sisters Canada. To carry out the annual planning the National
Shura meeting was held on phone dated 11th and 25th December
and in person dated 20th and 21st December of 2010.
The attendees’ were: President ICNA sisters Canada- Asma
Shaheen, Vice Presidents- Maryam Owais and Farah Alam ,
Secretary General- Humaira Ahmed and Shura members- Nusrat
Wahid, Shireen Qureshi and Samreen Amir (via phone). Additional
members in advisory were Saba Rashid, Shaheen Salahuddin,
Nasreen Aziz, Farzana Khan & Roomana saher.
The meeting was initiated with Tazkeer Ausaaf-e-Shura
(Ethics of Shura). The Speaker was Dr. Iqbal Masood Nadvi President
of ICNA Canada.

covenant, will be questioned about - 17:34
Here the covenant or agreement means, the agreement
with Allah SWT as an Ibadullah and any other agreement to accept

because we are answerable to Allah (SWT). Our only objective is to
gain the pleasure of Allah (SWT), so we need to be persistent in our
