Ameen & Bismallah Celebration
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to photograph an Ameen & Bismallah for two wonderful little girls at the Hilton in Rockville Maryland. Never having been to an event such as this one, I had to google the terms and watch a few YouTube videos so that I could be somewhat prepared. Ameen is Arabic for Amen and is said after the completion of prayers. The Ameen celebration marks the completion of reading the holy book of Islam.
The Bismallah Ceremony is a cultural practice that is celebrated in South Asia. It marks the beginning of a child’s Islamic education. It is when a child begins to learn and recite the teachings of the Quran and the celebration typically occurs when the child is between four and five years old. It was a pleasure photographing the celebration and below are a few images from the event.
