In 2013 The World Federation reported about the Tableegh efforts carried out by NISA, an organisation that aims to spread the teachings of the Ahlul Bayt (a) in Kosovo and Albania.
The Islamic Education department of The World Federation of KSIMC, in partnership with The Muslim Unity Society of Poland, is embarking upon a series of external tableegh efforts in Poland.
Three events were held that brought together the Shi’a community to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Husayn (as). Lectures were given in Polish by brother Arek Miernik, and attracted approximately 150 people, including non-Shi’as and non-Muslims.
On the Day of Ashura, majalis were delivered in Polish, Arabic and Farsi, and all of the smaller conmmunities in Poland came together to commemorate as one. The Arabic and Farsi lectures were delivered by Abolfazl Saboori. Several ambassadors of Muslim countries also attended. At the end of the Ashura programme, a Polish lady embraced Islam and the teachings of the Ahlul Bayt (as).
The Milad un-Nabi programme included lectures by Brother Arek Miernik in Polish, Brother Mahmood Dhalla in English, and Dr Umeidi in Farsi. There were poetry and Qaseeda recitations by local Arab reciters.
The event attracted 80 people including Poles, Arabs and Iranians, and several ambassadors of Muslim countries. Representatives of the Sunni Tatar community also attended.
Sayyid Aliraza Naqvi, Head of Islamic Education, commented: “It is an honour for us to be able to support the propagation of the teachings of the Ahlul Bayt (as). Inshallah we intend to continue this support into the publication of a book on Karbala, an Islamic magazine in Polish, and then a book on ethics and spirituality.”
