Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Halton Niagara Region, Canada, welcomed the new year 2024 with congregational Tahajjud and Fajr prayers at the Baitun Nur Mosque, Hamilton, Ontario. The mosque is located approximately 100 kilometres southwest of the Baitul Islam Mosque in Toronto.

Sadr Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Canada Tahir Ahmed Sahib, Professor Jamia Ahmadiyya Canada Abdul Sami Khan Sahib, missionary Shahrukh Abid Sahib, and various members of the national Khuddam Amila travelled from Peace Village to join khuddam from across the Region at the Baitun Nur Mosque.

More than 100 khuddam and atfal gathered in the early hours of 1 January to start the day with prayers. After the Fajr prayer, khuddam enjoyed an interesting question-and-answer session and learned historical facts about Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya from the Jamia professor.

After breakfast, khuddam were ready for waqar-e-amal in downtown Hamilton. By 9:30 am, teams were formed, with each team getting the map of their assigned area to be cleaned and cleaning supplies.

For one solid hour, 78 khuddam performed waqar-e-amal in the streets of Hamilton Downtown. Upon completion, they were treated to hot tea and boiled eggs. The day concluded with brief remarks by Qaid Ilaqa Western Ontario, Zahid Chaudhary Sahib and Mohtamim Waqar-e-Amal, Khalid Hassan Sahib.

A silent prayer, followed by a group photo, brought the morning of the New Year to an end.
