The national majlis-e-amila of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Bangladesh had the blessed opportunity of a virtual mulaqat with Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa on 9 January 2021.
This day will forever be etched in the minds of the participants of this mulaqat specifically, as well as all the Bangladeshi Ahmadis in general, as this was the first of its kind in the history of Bangladesh.
This blessed meeting with Huzooraa took place after Huzooraa asked whether the national amila members were present in the virtual mulaqat with missionaries of Bangladesh last November.
Upon being informed that the national amila members were not a part of the meeting, Huzooraa instructed the amila to come for a meeting with him.
Upon a request from Bangladesh, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa most graciously granted approval for this blessed mulaqat.
Some impressions from the participants are as follows:
Bashiruddin Afzal Khan Chowdhury Sahib, Secretary Sanat-o-Tijarat, said:
“This virtual meeting with Huzooraa was truly wonderful. His invaluable directions regarding proper planning and homework before providing loans will be followed, insha-Allah.”
Rafi Ahmad Palash Sahib, Assistant Secretary Wasaya, said:
“The meeting with Huzooraa was a source of great pleasure and honour indeed. May Allah enable us to achieve the target of Wasiyyat set by Huzooraa, where he instructed to increase the number of musis. Amin.”
Muhammad Zahed Ali Sahib, Sadr Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Bangladesh, said:
“This meeting with Huzooraa is a source of great pride for me, my family and my colleagues. I was nervous as well, fearing that Huzooraa might observe my weaknesses. The entire time, I was in a trance; even now while writing this, I feel as though I am not in this world. I do not know when this trance will pass. This is the most memorable moment of my life, one which cannot be explained in words.”
Shibgatur Rahman Sahib, Assistant Secretary Tarbiyat, said:
“Alhamdulillah, I am so happy. I could not hold my tears when we saw Huzooraa on the screen and he said salaam to us. May Allah enable us to follow his guidelines properly. Amin.”
GM Firoz Ahmad Sahib, Secretary Finance, said:
“I could never imagine that I would be able to meet Huzooraa ever. Allah has accepted our prayers. I hope and pray that we will be able to implement all the pending projects according to the guidelines provided by our beloved Huzooraa.”
Mahbubur Rahman Sahib, General Secretary, said: “This was a historic day. We normally see Huzooraa on MTA. But today, we got the opportunity to meet Huzooraa, albeit virtually, face to face. It was a very delightful experience. Ever since the mulaqat date was fixed, I had been praying and reciting the last two verses of Surah al-Baqarah and also doing istighfar.
“Huzooraa said that as Bangladesh was a small country, we must ensure that there is a complete collection of reports from local jamaats. As Huzooraa has instructed this, I am confident that from now on, 100% of reports will be collected, insha-Allah. May Allah help us to achieve the targets that have been fixed by our beloved Huzooraa. Amin.”
May Allah bless all the members of the national amila and Ahmadis of Bangladesh in general and enable us to follow the guidelines provided by Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa to the letter. Amin.
