During a virtual mulaqat of the national amila of Lajna Imaillah Bangladesh with Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa, which was held on 14 November 2020, a member of Lajna Imaillah said, “Under the current circumstances, where there is a pandemic, we are unable to preach like before. How can we continue our work under these circumstances? Could Huzoor kindly guide us in this regard?”
“Now, we have no choice, other than to stay indoors. Governments in some countries have legislated social distancing and some other restrictions due to Covid.
“However, one can develop personal contacts online despite those restrictions. Those who are determined to work have devised plans for virtual tabligh on social media. If your tabligh department is able to create a social media presence, then members of Lajna would be able to go there to do tabligh. The entire Lajna can participate in that. Moreover, you can preach by calling your contacts or sending them messages through social media. You can send a good message or a pleasant quote about the teachings of Islam. Then, more avenues open gradually.
“Hence, there are avenues for doing tabligh that could be explored even under the current circumstances. You will have to make an effort and explore them yourselves.”
