Lajna Imaillah Ireland held its 14th annual ijtema on 30 September 2023, at St. Finian’s Community Hall, Newcastle, in Dublin. The ijtema was attended by 67 Lajna members and 14 nasirat members from all over Ireland.
The ijtema proceedings began with the recitation from the Holy Quran, followed by the Lajna pledge and a poem. After this, Secretary Talim Lajna Imaillah Ireland read out a comprehensive report summarising the previous year’s activities, and the competitions commenced thereafter.
As we are celebrating 100 years of Lajna Imaillah all over the globe, Lajna from each region designed exhibition tables commemorating this remarkable achievement, adorning their displays with model mosques, providing information regarding all the milestones Lajna Imaillah has attained, and more. This was followed by academic competitions and a prize distribution ceremony. During the concluding session, Sadr Lajna Imaillah Ireland addressed the attendees and spoke about the importance of attending Jamaat gatherings.
