Once again alhamdulillah, it is a great occasion in the Miracle Media Group Inc.’s history as it has completed sixteen years -a long journey that began on Feb 23rd, 2001. I want to thank the supporters and well wishers of ‘The Miracle’ for providing continuous support through advertisements of their businesses, sharing their thoughts in writing with our readers, especially Mr. Nusrat Hussain, Mr. Shams Jilani, Mr. Aslam Hayat, Mr. Azhar Syed, Maulana Abdul Lateef Naumani, Mr. Mian Tariq Javed (Toronto), Mrs. Shamim Karim, Mrs. Alam Ara, Mrs. Shabnam Khan, Dr. Huma Mir, Ms. Fatma Nadeem, Ms. Asma Ayyaz, Mrs. Nafisa Siddiqi, Mr. Mohammad Ali Wahlah and many others.
The Miracle team feels proud to have established and continued our tradition of special editions on occasions such as Federal, Provincial and Civic Elections, Independence Day of Pakistan, Eid ul-Fitr and Eid ul Adha. In past few years, the Miracle conducted many successful Election Forums on Civic, Provincial and Federal Elections debates. Recently at 2015 Federal Elections the Miracle Media did a vital role to conduct Surrey Candidates grand debate under the banner of BC Muslim Print Media.
We held Qirat and Hamad o Naat competitions, awards for Miracle Youth, Advertisers, Sponsors and Writers. Miracle Media also conducted three 6 hours long exciting Musical Competition programs for tributes the legendry Pakistani Singers Mehdi Hassan and Nusrat Fateh Ali KhanMixed Pakistani songs, these programs engaged children, youth, adults and seniors of all communities.
On Feb 19, 2016 again Miracle Media arranged a quality program of Miracle’s Writers and Musicians awards with Sham e Ghazal night to tribute the great legendry Pakistani singers, Mehdi Hassan and Noor Jehan at a large scale.
The newspaper aims to provide a broad overview of the world through articles and images. Over the years, we have covered around 4300 events from all communities in efforts to keep up with our slogan,
“Bringing Harmony to all the communities”. We are also proud that when Non-Muslims read Miracle Newspaper, they learn more about Islam as well as the local and international Muslim community.
Feb 23, 2001 was a remarkable day for the BC Muslim community when Mr. Nusrat Hussain launched the first Muslim Newspaper on biweekly basis. His family’s and his day and night struggle gave a voice to the community.
Mr. Nusrat Hussain, founder of Miracle, handed me over the responsibility to run this show alone from Jan 2007. Thanks Mr. Hussain! I have been since trying to nourish your baby, The Miracle, to this day, Feb 17, 2017.
How successful my entire team and I have been in achieving this tasks? Well, the Miracle’s readers are the best judges.
Miracle is the only one who cares and respects all community members irrespective of colour, nationality and faith.
During its sixteen years of community service in journalism, the Miracle took one step ahead from our fellows in the field, from past four year we decided to give each advertisement special attention rather than printing consecutive 4-8 pages color ads and risk that readers will flip through all the ads without stopping. We have now divided each page in such a way so that the ads and articles are spread evenly on pages so our advertisers benefit from more exposure and our readers stay informed by reading articles and seeing what the businesses are offering at the same time.
We also pay thanks to our Advertisers.
Feel free to comment on this issue about Miracle’s Historical 16 years journey, as your concerns and suggestions are highly appreciated for improving our quality in future.
At the end I will not be honest if I do not appreciate the efforts of my Miracle’s family Khadija, Misbah, Sabeeh, Arslan, . Keep up the good work not only for the Miracle, but for all the community.
I thank everyone who took the time and sent their messages at Miracle’s16th Anniversary, including politicians, advertisers and well-wishing individuals from the community.
May Allah (SWT) accept your prayers for our success and may He help us in serving the community.
Jazaakumu Allahu Khairan.(Ameen)
