On 4 June 2023, the amila of Majlis Ansarullah Canada had the privilege of a virtual mulaqat with Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa.
Muhammad Musa Sahib, Qaid Isha’at Majlis Ansarullah Canada, reports that the request for this mulaqat was initially submitted by the Sadr Majlis Ansarullah in March 2023, with approval graciously granted on 27 May 2023. Following this, MTA Canada was promptly approached, and preparations for the venue commenced without delay. Aiwan-e-Tahir was selected as the preferred location. Despite the pre-existing schedule of events for the other auxiliary groups, namely Khuddam, Atfal, and Lajna, alterations were made to the timing and location of their activities. For their understanding and cooperation, Majlis Ansarullah extends its sincere gratitude and prays that Allah Almighty may bless them for this.
In the interest of organising registration, an online form was created and distributed among all national and regional amila members as well as the zu‘ama of the various majalis across Canada. Members travelled from all corners of the nation to partake in this historic audience and sought accommodation at Peace Village.
After the mulaqat, participants expressed an array of heartfelt emotions, a few of which are as follows:
Mirza Waqas Ahmed Sahib, the Additional Qaid Talim, conveyed, “Alhamdulillah, we were profoundly blessed to have the opportunity to be in the esteemed company of our beloved Huzooraa. It is an indescribable feeling. With emotions abounding in our hearts, our eyes were brimming, and our hearts swelled with joy. The affection we experienced surpassed even that which a father could shower upon his children.”
Amir Sattar Sahib expressed his gratitude by saying, “I am deeply thankful for the time Huzooraa gave to us. It was truly a blessed experience.”
Mansoor Ahmed Sahib described the meeting as “an incredibly inspiring experience that greatly bolstered my faith.”
Humayun Hafeez Haiderani Sahib reflected: “The mulaqat with Huzoor-e-Anwaraa was an immensely inspirational and spiritual experience. It made me realise that, it is vital to seize every opportunity to be part of an event graced by Huzoor-e-Anwar’saa presence.”
Lastly, Qamar Ahmad Shaheed Sahib shared, “There were mixed feelings of joy, excitement, and fear. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Huzooraa graciously guided us in all aspects, highlighting our shortcomings with love and affection, thereby motivating us to strive for improvement.”
