Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Bangladesh held its 49th annual Ijtema on 20-22 October 2021 at Darut Tabligh Mosque Complex, Bakshibazar, Dhaka.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, only a limited number of Khuddam were allowed to attend this year’s Ijtema. From 88 local majalis, 681 members attended the National Ijtema of whom 83 were waqifeen-e-nau and 17 were guests.
This year’s Ijtema theme was “Brotherhood”. We started working on this topic well before the Ijtema and banners were made on different verses of the Holy Quran, and sayings of the Promised Messiahas on brotherhood. On the second day of the Ijtema, a tarbiyati session was held on the topic of brotherhood followed by a question and answer session.
The highlight of the Ijtema were the academic competitions, single and group sports events, the wall magazine exhibition and career guideline programmes, etc. The representative of Amir Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Bangladesh was present during the opening and closing ceremonies.
On the evening of 22 October 2021, the Ijtema concluded with a prize distribution ceremony and silent prayer.
