Huzoor provides guidance to Mauritius Jamaat in virtual mulaqat
On 25 October 2020, members of Mauritius’ national amilas of Majlis Ansarullah, Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya and Lajna Imaillah had a virtual mulaqat with Hazrat Amirul Momineen, Khalifatul Masih V, may Allah strengthen his hand.
Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa began the mulaqat with silent prayer, after which the amila members had the opportunity to present their reports and received valuable advice, guidance and direction from Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa.
Starting from the right, addressing the national Secretary Talim, Basharat Ahmad Sooltangos Sahib, Hazrat Khalifatul Masihaa enquired, “How many university students are there?” Huzooraa, whilst highlighting the importance of collating and having the correct information, said, “Mauritius is such a small country; you should have all your information at your fingertips. How many students are university going, how many students are in secondary school? What is the number of boy students and what is the number of girl students? Which students have the most potential? This is the information you should have. This is the job of the secretary talim.”
Following this, addressing the Secretary Tarbiyat, Noorullah Khan Rassool Sahib, while emphasising the importance of this role and task, Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa said, “This is a very important position. If you do proper tarbiyat of your members, then it will help the secretary mal to collect chanda, it will help secretary umur-e-ama to have less cases of disputes. So, there are so many departments relying on you.”
Further, Huzooraa asked what the plan was for the year and what had been achieved. Huzooraa further enquired how many members were frequent in offering the five daily prayers and reciting the Holy Quran.
Addressing the Secretary Tabligh, Zahid Ahmad Napaul Sahib, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa asked about the target that was set for this year. Whilst further emphasising the importance of working and collaborating together, Huzooraa said, “You should give special emphasis on the tarbiyat of youngsters with the collaboration and cooperation of Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya and Lajna …”
Following this, addressing the General Secretary, Rizwan Mahmood Taujoo Sahib, Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa asked as to how many Jamaats sent their reports every month regularly.
Huzooraa further highlighted, “You should make a proper follow-up and ask each and every Jamaat to send a report.”
Huzooraa additionally added, “If you are honest with Allah, then you should try to observe whatever task has been assigned to you in a proper and appropriate way. Read the book, Rules and Regulations of Tahrik-e-Jadid and see what your duties and assignments are.”
Addressing Sadr Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya, Shameem Jamal Ahmad Sahib, Huzooraa asked how many khuddam and atfal are currently in Mauritius. Huzooraa further enquired if any person had joined the Jamaat through the eff orts of Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya and said, “Khuddam should come to the forefront because now it is your responsibility.”
In addition to this, addressing Sadr Majlis Ansarullah, Ismael Aullybux Sahib, Huzooraa asked how many Ansar were in Mauritius and how many were regular in paying monthly chanda. Huzooraa further asked how many Ansar were earning members.
Hazrat Khalifatul Masihaa emphasised that proper figures and information should be collected to have a better understanding of the work being conducted.
Whilst speaking to the Secretary Talim-ul-Quran & Waqf-e-Arzi, Kaleem Ahmad Soodhun Sahib, Huzooraa said, “Each and every amila member should go for waqf-e-arzi to different places to teach the Holy Quran and to do tabligh.”
Huzooraa further said, “From among national amila members, then local amila members, Khuddam amila members, Lajna amila members and Ansar amila members, if you include them all in the waqf-e-arzi scheme then you can acquire a good target.”
With regard to setting a target, Huzooraa further added, “Your target should be at least 500 waqifeen-e-arzi for this year. 500 people should offer their two weeks which means 1,000 weeks. 1,000 weeks means that in one year, you will have almost 20 years. So, in one year you can have 20 years in training your people.”
Whilst talking with the Secretary Zara‘at (Agriculture), Nazim Uddin Bhugeloo Sahib, Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa asked, “Do you have any agriculture land where you are doing agricultural farming?”
Upon this, the secretary zara‘at replied in the affirmative and said that they are developing an orchard to grow fruits such as bananas, mangoes and lychees.
Following this, addressing the Secretary Ishaat Sami-o-Basari, Wasim Ahmad Sookia, Huzooraa asked about his role and plan for the year. Upon this, Wasim Ahmad replied that eff orts were being made to start a YouTube channel which would provide the viewers the ability to watch Huzoor’saa programmes such as the Friday Sermon and This Week With Huzoor.
Upon this, Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa asked how many of them were regularly watching and listening to the Friday Sermons. Wasim Ahmad Sahib replied that this information was currently not available and further expressed that he would be conducting a survey to gather this information.
Upon hearing that the information was not available, Huzooraa said, “You are in the battlefield without a sword.”
As the mulaqat approached its end, Huzooraa said (as this meeting was especially meant for the national amila) that if Lajna Imaillah, Khuddam and Ansar wished to have a meeting, then they could have a separate meeting in the future if they desired.
In the end, Hazrat Khalifatul Masihaa advised, “I have given you some hints with regard to [improving] different departments. Try to follow the instructions and try to the read the book Rules and Regulations of Tahrik-e-Jadid so that each and every secretary knows what their duties are and how to discharge them. May Allah bless you, help you and let you serve the Jamaat in the best way.”
Upon this, the mulaqat came to a close.
