This gathering will be only the second world istimak in Malaysia after 23 years. It has been long since Malaysia become the host of this auspicious event. All muslim brothers will gather here and expecting also from the whole worlds. This is the way that Rasulullah s.a.w shown us to be a good muslim, with superb Iman and Amal. Let’s us convey this message to All muslim people, and pray to Allah may this gathering be a very successful gathering.
This is a photo taken during Istimak Tongi, Bangladesh early this year. Hopefully The Malaysia Istimak will be same capacity or even bigger than this insyaAllah.
Earlier this year in February 2009 at Tongi, Bangladesh, the Bangladeshi authorities deployed some 10,000 security officials to guard the World Congregation of Muslims at a 77-hectare (190-acre) site on the banks of River Turag in Tongi, just north of Dhaka, as hundreds of thousands of Muslims began arriving for the event, local government official Azmat Ullah Khan said. Khan said people were streaming into the ground on buses, trucks, ferries and trains. (International Herald Tribune)
It is reported that some 3 million Muslim devotees raised their hands in prayer for global peace, putting aside their country’s sometimes violent struggle with political corruption and Islamic extremists, at one of the world’s largest religious gatherings after Hajj in Mecca. The annual World Congregation of Muslims, or “Bishwa Ijtema,” has been held each year since 1966 on the banks of the River Turag in Tongi, just north of the capital, Dhaka. (The Ledger).
