Misbah Anmol Tariq, Jamaica Correspondent
In the months of December and January, Jamaica Jamaat was very fortunate to receive two members from Canada to serve under the blessed scheme of Waqf-e-Arzi (devoting some time to serve the Jamaat).
The first gentleman, Farhan Naseer Sahib, arrived on 25 December 2019 and stayed until 9 January 2020. After spending two days at the headquarters and meeting with local Jamaat members, he was sent to Trelawny where he spent most of his time.
The other gentleman to arrive was Ahmedullah Bajwah Sahib, who reached here on 7 January and stayed until 21 January 2020. During the first four days of his Waqf-e-Arzi, he carried out tabligh in Trelawny and for the last ten days, he served at the national headquarters.
Trelawny parish is one of the lesser populated parishes in Jamaica, however our Jamaat is growing in numbers there. Through dedicated efforts of Waqifeen-e-Arzi, we were able to distribute over 3,000 flyers in a short span of time. Our main focus during these days was to have meaningful and deep conversations with people and educate them about Islam Ahmadiyyat.
Our missionaries, as well as the guests, engaged in fruitful discussions with more than a hundred individuals. Besides tabligh, our guests assisted us in various other programmes, including the Annual Refresher Course, Voice of Islam Radio and teaching the Holy Quran to members.
By the grace of Allah the Almighty, it was a very beneficial time for Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Jamaica.
