Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Aotearoa (New Zealand) have been organising online sessions with scholars of the Jamaat. These sessions provide an opportunity for our members to benefit from the “company of the righteous” and enhance their educational and moral standards from the comfort of their homes.
Beginning last year, from the very outset of our lockdowns, we have held 20 of these sessions with markazi officeholders and missionaries from various countries.
Along with khuddam and atfal, the wider Jamaat members have attended and participated in these interactive discussions. These inspirational and faith-inspiring talks have been a great source of increasing our knowledge and enhancing our spirituality.
As part of these discussions, we have had missionaries and other personalities serving the Jamaat in various parts of the world in attendance. One such sitting in a two-part series was with Ataul Mujeeb Rashed Sahib, Missionary-in-Charge UK. The first of the series of programmes was held on 30 October 2021, and the second on 6 November 2021.
Ataul Mujeeb Rashed Sahib narrated his personal recollections with the Khulafa-e-Ahmadiyyat, highlighting the significance and blessings of forming a strong bond with Khilafat. His account of the migration of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IVrh from Pakistan to the UK was of particular interest.
Jamaat members were grateful to Ataul Mujeeb Rashed Sahib for the time spent in his company, listening to the faith-inspiring incidents of the blessings of Khilafat and being in the service of the Jamaat.
Commenting on the positive impact of these sittings, Sadr Lajna Imaillah New Zealand, Zabila Cheema Sahiba said:
“It was a great pleasure and privilege to be part of the online sessions with Ataul Mujeeb Rashed Sahib. The historic recollections given by him were awe-inspiring and were reflective of a truly strong love and bond with Khilafat.”
Sadr Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya New Zealand, Azeem Zafarullah Sahib said:
“As the youth of Ahmadiyyat, there is much for us to take away from the experiences of our respected elders and waqifeen-e-zindagi – whether it be through the accounts of the tarbiyat instilled by their parents or the life lessons learned through close proximity to Khulafa-e-Ahmadiyyat – we find gems of wisdom, which we have benefited from immensely by the grace of Allah.”
National President of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya New Zealand, Bashir Khan Sahib said:
“We have been truly blessed to take part in these virtual sessions and very much touched and inspired in hearing about these moving accounts about Khulafa-e-Ahmadiyyat, the Jamaat’s historical milestones and the selfless services rendered by waqifeen-e-zindagi in the propagation of Islam Ahmadiyyat.”
