Hamda Soosn Chaudhry, Sadr Lajna Imaillah Germany
On 19 February 2022, 251 members of Nasirat-ul-Ahmadiyya Germany, aged 10 to 12, were granted the blessed opportunity of a virtual mulaqat with Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa. Sadr Lajna Imaillah Germany and National Secretary Nasirat-ul-Ahmadiyya were also present at this blessed occasion.
Different Lajna teams warmly welcomed the Nasirat in Bait-us-Subuh Mosque. The nasirat were happy and excited. They had to go through some checkpoints, like health and safety, registration and amanat (bag storage). Due to the circumstances, only nasirat who showed their vaccine certification and provided a negative Covid test were allowed to come. Once all the formalities were completed, nasirat were allowed to make their way to the hall where the virtual mulaqat would be held. Upon entering the hall, all nasirat received a same-coloured headscarf, a notebook and a pen.
Whilst waiting, nasirat were offered breakfast, hot and cold drinks and snacks.
The mulaqat began at 1:15 pm.
Nasirat’s hearts and eyes were filled with love and joy; for some it was still unbelievable but all of them were extremely thankful and happy to see their beloved Huzooraa.
The impressions of the participants are as follows:
Jasmin Khokhar Sahiba, Secretary Nasirat-ul-Ahmadiyya, said:
“By the grace of Allah the Almighty, Nasirat of mi‘yar-e-dom (Age 10-12) had the great blessing of this virtual mulaqat, alhamdulillah. The nasirat were radiating joy and anticipation before the mulaqat and gratitude afterwards. Huzoor’saa words of wisdom and love will forever be in our minds and hearts, insha-Allah. Beloved Huzooraa answered every question with such detail that nasirat could easily understand them and increase their knowledge. May Allah bless our beloved Khalifa and may all nasirat take the true benefit of this blessed opportunity and draw from it the strength and confidence to give precedence to their religion over the world. Amin.”
Yusra Naem Sahiba commented:
“It was like a dream come true, I was really looking forward to be a part of the mulaqat with beloved Huzooraa.”
Alizah Khokhar Sahiba from Hamburg region said:
“I am so excited to be here. I have never been in Bait-us-Sabuh before. So, I was extremely excited. I asked my parents the whole time ‘are we there yet?’”
Manal Ahmad Sahiba, from Neuhof, commented:
“This was the first time I got to see Huzooraa.”
Basma Sajeek Sahiba, from Mahdiabad (Nahe) said:
“We have been talking a lot about having a mulaqat with beloved Huzooraa during our nasirat classes. Girls of mi‘yar-e-awwal were blessed to have a mulaqat already. I was just waiting for the day that the mulaqat for mi‘yar-e-dom would be announced.”
Adila Nawaz Sahiba, from Freiburg, commented:
“As I saw Huzooraa, I felt so blessed and fortunate. It was after such a long time that I was filled with emotions, I cannot even describe it. But I still feel fortunate to be here.”
Urwa Jathur Sahiba, from Grünberg said:
“It was really beautiful to listen to all the questions being asked. I pray that the other members of my majlis, who couldn’t come, will have this opportunity too, insha-Allah. I pray they can experience the same feelings as I experienced, when I saw Huzooraa live.”
Sabahat Atif Sahiba, from Mörfelden Walldorf region, commented:
“Before the mulaqat began, I was extremely nervous and anxious. As soon as the mulaqat began, it was really fun. I hope all nasirat get the chance to experience such a blessed moment, insha-Allah.”
Haleema Anaya Ahmad Sahiba, from Nauheim, said:
“Being able to attend this mulaqat, means a lot to me. Even though I have injured my foot, I was still able to be here. This injury will always be a positive memory for me now.”
Anaisha Ahmad Sahiba, from Maintal, commented:
“I was fully excited to be here, and it was amazing that I got to see Huzooraa again, and to hear him.”
Afia Asim Sahiba, from Friedrichsdorf, said:
“I feel really good to be here. I have actually learnt a lot; before this, I didn’t know any of these things. I didn’t have the courage to ask a question because it was my first ever mulaqat, but insha-Allah, next time I will try to ask a question.”
Kanta Seher Sahiba, from Wiesbaden North, commented:
“Three words I would use to describe my feelings are: nervous, peaceful and thankful. Those who are in Pakistan and don’t have this opportunity I pray they are able to come here, and also have a mulaqat.”
Noreen Ahmad Sahiba, from Mörfelden South, commented:
“I felt so fortunate to be in a mulaqat with Huzooraa. […] This mulaqat was a wonderful learning experience, even when you don’t have any questions, the things other nasirat ask are also very insightful. It helps to be in such events to increase your knowledge.”
Attia tul Waqil Bilal, from Bad Vilbel, commented:
“I had the wonderful opportunity to recite tilawat during this mulaqat. It was an amazing and beautiful feeling to be able to recite something in front of beloved Huzooraa.”
Sejal Fatima Irfan Sahiba, from Mülheim an der Ruhr, commented:
“I feel good right now. At first, I was nervous. It was my first-ever mulaqat. So, I am really happy. I learnt new things that I didn know before, for example about the Lahori Jamaat. I didn’t even know such a group existed.”
Inaya Ahmad Sahiba, from Karben, commented:
“I learnt so much. I felt like I was having a conversation with Huzooraa.”
