Earlier this year, the Hujjat English Listening Centre (ELC) marked 10 years of serving the community. The ELC work, at hujjat, to provide an English service that runs in parallel to the Urdu program in the main hall. The ELC was born out of the successful programmes for boys in the Annex building and moved to its home of the first floor in June 1999 (Ashra-e-Zainabiyya 1419). It has seen a raft of world renowned speakers, reciters and lecturers, and has been an opportunity for home-grown english Aalims and reciters as well.
Inshallah the ELC will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary on SATURDAY 19 SEPTEMBER 2009 in the main hall, where the guest speaker will inshallah be Sayed Mahdi Modarresi. This will be Sayed’s only english lecture during this holy month and is an excellent opportunity to listen to this great Aalim. In addition to this there will also be English qasidas by our very own, home grown, Voices of Passion and much more. The ELC extends an invitation to all community members to join in the celebrations.
