Rehana Kokab, Sadr Lajna Imaillah Finland
Lajna Imaillah Finland held its 7th annual ijtema on 5 and 6 August 2023.
The ijtema commenced on the morning of 5 August with the recitation from the Holy Quran, followed by the Lajna pledge, poem, and opening remarks by my humble self. After this, academic competitions were held.
During the ijtema, special focus was maintained on video clips from various virtual mulaqats where Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa had answered questions on an array of topics. These clips were shown after each competition to provide spiritual guidance to Lajna. Participants listened to the guidance very attentively, and this initiative was very appreciated.
During the concluding session, after tilawat and nazm, a presentation was delivered about the history of Lajna Imaillah Finland by General Secretary Tahira Nasir Sahiba, and Naib General Secretary Munazza Zafar Sahiba.
On the occasion of the annual ijtema, the first annual magazine of Lajna Imaillah Finland was introduced, entitled Mubaraka. A heartfelt message filled with guidance and affection was sent by beloved Huzooraa for this magazine, which has been included in its first issue. This message was read out by my humble self. All Lajna and Nasirat expressed great joy and happiness and thanked Allah for this blessing. Copies of this magazine were given to the presidents of all majalis so that all members could benefit from it.
At the end, the results of the competitions were announced and prizes were distributed to the members who secured positions. Furthermore, certificates were awarded to those Lajna who completed the targets of the centenary jubilee celebration of Lajna Imaillah.
The ijtema was attended by 98 members and four guests as well.
