The National department of Waqf-e-Nau in Belgium had the opportunity once again to hold its National Ijtema for Waqifeen-e-Nau on 4 May 2019 in the Jamaat’s mission house in Dilbeek, Belgium. Waqifeen and Waqifaat had their respective Ijtemas on the same day.
Throughout the year, preparations were in progress and weekly classes conducted by the missionaries in Belgium, organised for the preparation of the Ijtema, were a large part of preparing Waqifeen for this. May Allah reward them all.
The Ijtema started with the recitation of the Holy Quran followed by Dutch and French translations, after which a nazm was recited. The opening speech was given by Anwar Hussain Sahib, Naib Amir Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Belgium.
After the opening session, academic competitions began with tilawat competition, followed by nazm, qaseeda, Urdu speech, French speech and Dutch speech competitions.
The concluding session was presided by Dr Idrees Ahmad Sahib, Amir Jamaat Belgium. After the recitation of the Holy Quran and nazm, prizes were distributed to the first and second position holders.
In his speech, Amir Sahib reminded the Waqifeen-e-Nau of their responsibilities and advised senior Waqifeen-e-Nau to present their services in various departments of the Jamaat. The programme concluded with dua.
