The Africa Federation Women's Board (A.F.W.B) in collaboration with the KSI Jamaat of Arusha held a session on "Health and Relationship" on Monday 16th September 2013. The Program was attended by the Board Chairperson Fatim bai Somji who was on a visit to Arusha.

The purpose of having this session was to share views from ladies of different walks of life within the Community.

The main topic discussed was "How different families cope with same issues in different ways".  This topic generated a lot of discussion amongst the ladies and solutions on how to handle issues was also presented.

Some ladies shared a few ideas that they had gained from other seminars they had attended previously which include the Marriage Seminar organized by the Africa Federation Tabligh Board and Africa Federation Youth Network and the BMTI test held by Africa Federation Capacity Building Group.

The following points were noted down to be looked into:

  1. Requirement of a Female gynecologist.
  2. Awareness on Breast and cervical Cancers.
  3. Annual Medical Checkups.
  4. Ladies Gym and Sports facility.
  5. Women Health issues especially hormonal imbalances.
  6. Pre Marriage seminars.
  7. Educating adolescents on sexual relationships and hygiene.
  8. Seminars on "Knowing Oneself".

The Session provided a platform for ladies to interact and discuss various issues relating to women and how they could help each other.   A network was started where the ladies would share health related information like recipes, health tips and other useful tips are helpful in the day-to-day life.

The Session was fruitful and it was felt that more such sessions would help ladies come up with solutions through discussions and sharing of ideas.

The Women Board would like to take this opportunity to recommend to Jamaats in Africa to organize such sessions for the ladies at least once every three months and inform the Board of any assistance they may require.

The Board thanks the Managing Committee of Arusha Jamaat for facilitating this program and for all the assistance and arrangements made.

Thanks to all participants for their valuable contributions at the Forum.

In line with one of the aims of the Womens' Board which is to provide Islamic and professional insight into child development, behavioral needs and inform mothers of the different approaches to child nurturing in the modern context, the Board organized a talk on MIND SHIFT on Friday 7th December 2012 at the Mehfile Abbas, Dar-es-Salaam.

The talk was addressed by the visiting Zakira Kanize Zainab Lakadawala from Mumbai, India and the topic was "How to bridge the Generation Gap". About 400 ladies attended this enlightening talk.

The ladies found the presentation quite interesting and beneficial as it related to the day-to-day practical life and child upbringing in this era.

Zakira Kanize Zainab talk was focused on the following points:

  • Live in the present.
  • Compromise and Sacrifice is what life is all about.
  • Try to be in line with your children.
  • When you speak, make sure your speech holds value for your children.
  • Home environment should always be pleasant and it is in the hands of a woman to ensure that takes place.
  • Women have the most powerful weapon – The Brain.
  • Never ever compare your children.
  • Change is very important therefore we have to change, however, change does not mean compromising the Islamic Values.
  • Do not make mountains out of mole hills.
  • Be mentally happy and you will always be happy. Positive thinking is the key word.
