The Africa Federation Women’s Board (AFWB) held an Essay and Quiz Competition for ladies of the community. The Objective of the Competition was: To educate women on the Islamic viewpoint of family ethics, to inculcate morals and spiritual principles that oversee relationships between family members and to give an Islamic insight into the Life of Our Role Models like the Lady of Light.

This Competition was held in celebration of the Wiladah of the Lady of Light Bibi Fatimah Zahra (AS). The competition was launched on the Wiladah of Bibi Zainab (AS) – 25th February 2015 and collection was done on the Wiladah of the Lady Fatimah (AS) – 10th April 2015.

The Quiz was open for ladies of ages 20 years and above and the Essay was open for ladies aged 45 yrs and above. The aim of the competition was to involve all the ladies of our community and share their ideas and experiences.  27 ladies from different AFED Jamaats participated in the essay writing and many have poured their hearts out to share their experiences in child upbringing. We would like to make a booklet where we can share all the essays and leave examples for our younger and next generation to make use of.
The Essays were very well written and it was very difficult to judge and come up with winners. Since the Board only had to come up with one winner with the best written essay, we have six runners up who all equally presented very good essays. All the participants will also receive certificates of participation and some cash prize as a token of consolation.
The Essay submitted by Sister. Latifa Mehboob Bhimani of Tanga Jamaat was adjudged the best essay of the Competition
The following are the Runners Up:

The Board records its sincere appreciation to Sister Abeeda Janmohamed of Winglink Travels Dar-es-Salaam and Alhaj Imtiaz Lalji of Travellink Dar-es-Salaam for the donation of the two tickets for the winners.  We also extend our appreciation to all the other donors for this Competition.
