Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Canada held its 17th annual grade-10 Talim and Tarbiyat camp at the Baitul Islam Mosque Complex from 22 to 29 December 2023.

The opening session was presided over by Sadr Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Canada, Tahir Ahmed Sahib. He was accompanied by Imtiaz Ahmed Sra Sahib. Later, they were joined by Amir Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Canada, Lal Khan Malik Sahib.

Khuddam were divided into eight groups, which competed with one another in academic and sports competitions.

The camp’s schedule closely resembled a typical day in the life of a Jamia Ahmadiyya student. After offering Fajr prayer, students recited the Holy Quran in the mosque, followed by breakfast and assembly in the Jamia auditorium. Next were classes with various missionaries on basic Islamic jurisprudence, salat with translation, dismantling atheism, and basic Islamic beliefs.

Students also participated in special activities to enhance brotherhood and teamwork. After Zuhr and Asr prayers and lunch, students proceeded to Aiwan-e-Tahir for sports. After sports, students had some time to spend in their hostels before the Maghrib prayer, followed by dinner and the Isha prayer.

Special guest lectures were organised after the Isha prayer, which were delivered by various speakers of Jamaat. These lectures included talks with Sadr Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Canada, National Secretary Tarbiyat Canada Shahid Mansoor Sahib, and Missionary Sharrukh Abid Sahib. The night concluded with open group discussions with missionaries in the hostels.

A highlight of the camp was the live broadcast of Radio Ahmadiyya from the Baitul Islam Mosque. Radio Ahmadiyya has been broadcasting weekly in Canada since 1995. It invites missionaries from the Jamaat and allows listeners to ask questions of them. Missionary Mirza Muhammad Afzal Sahib, was the guest and answered questions from camp participants.

The camp participants also had a field trip to a local attraction, where they were able to play a game of mini golf.

At the end of the camp, students were tested on what they had learned during the week.

Throughout the camp, discipline was emphasised and at the end of the camp, the best student and best group were recognised.

The camp came to a successful conclusion on 29 December. Missionary-in-charge Canada, Abdul Rashid Anwar Sahib, and Sadr Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Canada presided over the closing session. Prizes were awarded and students were recognised for their work over the week.

In the end, students had the opportunity to express their opinions and feedback about the camp. Overall, students thoroughly enjoyed the camp. A total of 79 khuddam participated in this year’s camp.
