  1. It gives immense pleasure that for the first time mowlana Hazir Imam visited Northern areas. The people were living a very hard life there was no proper road and other facilities available . Imam of the time went to saveral places and met the jamat and saw their condition . It was blessing for the area as today we see the progress in the northern areas. Salgirah Mubarak
