Participation certificates were handed over to all the participants of Drawing Competition. Card Making saw the maximum entries of 110 including Mumbai, Bangalore, US, Dubai etc. Laced with all accessories, children made attractive cards with Aqaa Maulaa’s Photo, flowers, glitters, lace, stickers along with Ash’aar and Poetry meant for the Milaad Mubaarak-baadi. Through such events we could come across and gauge the talent and creativity of our children.
In the corridor of Jamaa’at-khaana, behind the Qiblah, Non-Gas Cooking Competition was held in which 16 teams participated. Nutritive Quotient, Presentation, Recipes and Taste were the main criteria behind this event. All of them were very thrilled and upbeat to make and exhibit their dish with something new and delicious. The event was minutely handled and judged by the experts who extended their graceful suggestions and invited girls for further training.
At 11:30 AM, Aqaa Maulaa’s Tashreef-aawri was a Ne’mat for at-Taiyebaat committee and Anjuman-e-Madrasah Taiyebiyah when Maulaa chaired the function and said that,
|“Today, I can’t express myself how Masarrat-mand I am! You are all my Children. For your Ruhaani Bawaji, you have made Drawings, Cards, did Madeh-khwaani and did everything possible to come here and sit in front of me in this Majlis-e-Milaad. You are the future of my Jamaa’at. You are the fragrant blossoming flowers of Gulzaar-e-Haatemi. I am always there for you and in every Namaaz I am doing Du’aa for you. May Allaah Ta’aala make you ‘Qurrato Aiyn’ for your Waaledayn.”
Students of Madrasah recited different Ash’aar, Rubaa’iyaat, Qasaa’id and spoke on the distinctiveness of Dawr-e-Haatemi and the achievements of Aqaa Maulaa in Academics and Research. All were very delighted in presenting themselves and giving mubaarak-baadi when Aqaa Maulaa himself is present in the Majlis. Aqaa Maulaa did Tehseen and Hawslah-afzaai for all of them. Aqaa Maulaa awarded with trophies, those who stood on 1st, 2nd and 3rd position in Card Making and Non-Gas Cooking competition. On behalf of at-Taiyebaat committee, Mukaasir Maulaa presented Hadiyah Faakherah of “Chandi ni Tasbeeh” to Aqaa Maulaa and did ‘arz for the Tawfeeq and Ta’eed for more ‘itaa’at and khidmat.

It was all about the Sports and Games event which was held for quite a long long time. All of them from children to grand-parents enjoyed each and every game with the memories of childhood days coming alive in the minds of parents. It truly proved a community event where muminaat-mumineen converged to celebrate Maulaa’s Milaad with some light moments and joyous episodes. After Maghrib Namaaz, Mukaasir Maulaa gave medals to those who won in various games. Funfair was the seal of all events.
