Ceremony to celebrate Jashn e Takleef (Celebrating the coming of age for religious responsibility) at the Islamic Centre of England – 2024

The Ceremony to celebrate the Jashn e Takleef (Celebrating the coming of age for religious responsibility) was held in the Islamic Centre of England in the presence of dozens of teenage girls in London. In this festive ceremony, which was held in the presence of many students of Quranic recitation, along with their parents, teachers, and staff of Tebyan School, consisted of various programs. This included the recitation of the Quran, the performance of eulogies, tawashi, the performance by Hijab Theater, and the recitation of poetry. Girls who had just come to the religious age of responsibility were passed under the Quran.

Hojjat al-Islam wal-Muslimeen Seyed Hashem Moosavi, the Imam of the Islamic Centre of England, congratulated the young people who celebrated their coming of age. He stated, “Entering the age of obligation means a new stage of life and responsibility and one of the best moments in the life of our girls because they can experience the joy of observing religious and Shariah rules both mentally and physically.

Hojjat al-Islam wal-Muslimeen Moosavi told the parents of the girls participating in the celebration that if they wanted their children to be good servants of Islam, they should help these heavenly angels by giving them the opportunity to gradually become familiar with Islamic rules and teach them what they need by providing them with good schools and suitable educational facilities.

The Imam of the Islamic Centre of England referred to the environment, schools and family as three educational factors. He further added, “Parents should not only think about family and school but also a good environment. They should participate in religious programs at places like Islamic centres and mosques so that a foundation for the respect of religious rites can be instated, as this plays a major role in children’s upbringing.”

In this ceremony, 29 participating girls who took part, were treated with cakes and commemorative gifts, took the oath of recitation, and received a certificate of Takleef (coming of age of religious responsibility) from Hojjat al-Islam wal-Muslimeen Moosavi, Imam of the Islamic Centre of England.
