Friday Night Reflections: The Violet Bows to the Lily, The Promise of Spring

March 19, 2021 | Canada

This weekend, the Jamat around the world will celebrate Navroz (Nowruz), marking the beginning of a new year and the first day of spring. We are pleased to present a three-day Navroz programme featuring programmes in multiple languages for children and adults alike. The weekend aims to entertain, educate and delight, ensuring that since Navroz cannot be celebrated in the way we are accustomed to, that we can still come together virtually to celebrate this season of spiritual renewal and physical rejuvenation as One Jamat.

The festivities kick-off on Friday, March 19, with Friday Night Reflections where host Zain Velji, in a wide-ranging interview with President Ameerally Kassim-Lakha, takes us on the journey of the Jamat over the past year, reflecting on strengths, talents and connections that have sustained us and anticipating with hope and optimism, the future that lies ahead. A cooking demonstration of Navroz delights sherbet and haft mewa will enable us to celebrate with our loved ones. And the world premiere of two new Canadian music videos will be sure to refresh and renew, in true spring fashion. Join us for all this and more, this Friday evening.
