Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Nairobi region held a tarbiyat refresher course for both Khuddam and Atfal at the regional headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya on 5-6 February 2022. All five majalis of the region were represented.
The opening session commenced with the recitation from the Holy Quran followed by opening remarks and silent prayer led by Ismail Kishoma Sahib, Regional Qaid.
Khuddam were then engaged in the first class, which was on “Marriage in Islam”. Due to the vastness of the topic, the moderator briefly talked in general about what nikah was and elaborated on the importance of marriage.
The class was so lively and engaging that most Khuddam asked questions about all issues and concerns within marriage. On the other hand, Atfal had a different programme regarding “Obedience to parents and family”.
Then, Maghrib and Isha prayers were performed and supper was served. Both Khuddam and Atfal thereafter converged at the mosque to watch the MTA programme This Week with Huzoor.
On 6 February, the day was started with Tahajud and Fajr prayers.
Sports and physical exercises for both Khuddam and Atfal were organised. Volleyball and football were the main sports events engaged by the participants.
After breakfast, another session was held on “Nizaam-e-Jamaat and responsibilities of a khadim and tifl”.
After that, a session was held in which the participants were taught about all the basic Chandas and their prescribed rates.
The last session of the tarbiyat refresher course was about “Writing letters to Huzooraa”.
The concluding session was presided over by Amir and the Missionary-in-Charge of Kenya, Tariq Mahmood Zafar Sahib.
During the session, the regional missionary, Sheikh Basharat Sahib delivered a speech about the responsibilities of the Ahmadi Muslim youth. Then, Amir Sahib Jamaat Kenya addressed the gathering.
A total of 61 members attended the event, including 14 Atfal, 45 Khuddam and 2 visitors.
