Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Canada held its National Tabligh Day on 20 March 2022.
Muhammad Dawood Khalid Sahib from the national tabligh department reports that with the prevailing pandemic situation and regulatory measures in place, the plan for tabligh day was different from the norm. Members were requested to take part in the following three activities across Canada:
1. Distributing the flyer “Third World War” at busy public locations in their neighbourhoods. This flyer was based on the book World Crisis and the Pathway to Peace by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa. The flyer invited readers to get a free electronic or printed copy of the book.
2. Displaying hand-held banners of “Messiah has Come” at major intersections in their local area.
3. Participating in a Canada-wide Twitter trend campaign on “Messiah has Come”.
Members were also requested to engage in spiritual preparation for tabligh. The Jamaat members were encouraged to undertake the following actions:
a. Start the day by offering tahajjud prayer.
b. Write to beloved Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa requesting prayers.
c. Perform two nawafil [voluntary prayers] for the progress of Islam Ahmadiyyat.
d. Give sadaqah [charity] for tabligh efforts.
More than 45,000 flyers were distributed across Canada by 3,500 volunteers.
