Kids were all dressed with headbands by our volunteers to perform the ‘Salam Farmande’ Surūd on stage. Hundreds of live audience applauded their performance with Salawaat on Muhammad wa Ale Muhammad (s). Their performance left many in tears of joy and the hall resonated with the slogans of ‘Labbayka Ya Mahdi’ and ‘Labbayka Ya Khamenei’.
