The muktad days have been observed at the Darbe Mehr for over 30 years. Through the years we have remembered over 500 names of our dear departed ones during the prayers every year.

It has always been supported by our community over the years. We have over 100 community members attending the afternoon satum and nearly 200 to 225 community members for the evening satum.

Our mobeds, young and old, recite the prayers for the three Satums along with Afargan Farokshi in the morning.

We hope to receive continued support for our muktad days.
