Maryam Afzal, Sadr Lajna Imaillah Belgium
On 6 November 2022, the national amila of Lajna Imaillah Belgium had the opportunity of a virtual meeting with Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa.
In order to prepare for this mulaqat, multiple meetings of the national amila were held during the year in which the members were reminded to go through their records in depth, and to prepare any questions they might want to ask from Huzooraa.
The amila members went to the Baitul Mujeeb Mosque in Uccle for waqar-e-amal on the night before the meeting, and made all arrangements. We also hired cameras and a sound system for this occasion. A goat was sacrificed as sadaqah at Fajr time on the day of the mulaqat. All amila members were present at the venue three hours before the scheduled time of the mulaqat. The Ziafat team worked hard to prepare the lunch for attendees.
We are very fortunate to have had the blessed opportunity to have a meeting with Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa. It has once again reminded us how blessed we are to have Khilafat-e-Ahmadiyya. Huzooraa has granted us important guidance to make improvements in all of the departments and we have also received valuable guidance with regard to various ongoing projects. It is now our duty to act upon these instructions in order to see progress in every aspect. May Allah enable all of us to do so, amin.
The feedback from the other participants is as follows:
Memoona Bhatti Sahiba, Naiba General Secretary said:
“I feel blessed to have been a part of this blessed mulaqat. We had been preparing for this mulaqat for several months, and were very worried till the last second before the mulaqat, however, the moment Huzooraa came on screen, I went into a state of calmness. I cannot describe in words how blessed I felt. Huzooraa has given us so much time from his busy schedule, alhamdulillah. May Allah enable us to implement the advice and guidelines of Huzooraa. Amin.”
Mariam Siddiqa Mir Sahiba, General Secretary, expressed:
“I had the blessed opportunity to meet Huzooraa. In addition to preparing for the mulaqat, we were occupied with prayers as well for the success of this meeting. Though there was some worry before the meeting, during the meeting it turned into calmness and we got valuable guidance from Huzooraa. We will make every possible effort to act upon the instructions of Huzooraa, insha-Allah.”
Bushra Ehsan Sikundar Sahiba, Secretary Tabligh, said:
“Meeting Huzooraa is always touching and emotional, but this time as a member of the national amila, I could experience other feelings, as to how beloved Huzooraa can inspire us, enlighten our mind and draw our attention to be able to serve in a better way. We pray to Allah that He may enable us to implement all that our beloved Huzooraa advised us, and we will be able to get better results in our tabligh efforts.”
Aisha Touqir Sahiba, the camera lady, expressed:
“I am a waqifa-e-nau student and I feel so blessed that I had this big opportunity to capture Lajna Imaillah Belgium’s first virtual mulaqat ever with Huzooraa. I wasn’t expecting it at all, I got called suddenly and I felt such a big joy and blessing. Ever since I heard about this virtual mulaqat, I had a very strong wish to be part of it, but I knew it was not possible because I am not in the national amila nor in any of their teams. But despite this, Allah the Almighty paved the way for me and granted me the opportunity to be a part of it, alhamdulillah.”
