Imaduddin Al-Masri, Kababir
Shams-ud-Deen Malabari Sahib, Missionary-in-Charge Kababir, and I embarked on a three-day tarbiyati tour to visit members of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Palestine.
The tour’s objectives were to visit the members of the Jamaat who had lost contact and to convey the message of Ahmadiyyat.
We visited brothers and sisters in the three main cities of Palestine and their surrounding villages. In addition, we conveyed the message of Ahmadiyyat to around 11 people, including the managers of two of the historical soap factories in Nablus. The total number of Ahmadis visited and communicated with during this tour was 19 families and 52 individuals.
After a few weeks, we went on another tour to visit brothers in Palestine. This tour lasted two days.
On the way to the house of an Ahmadi, we saw a mosque called Masjid-ul-Nabi Yunusas i.e. the mosque of the Prophet Yunusas. We asked the brother with us to park the car, and went down to see the mosque from the inside.
This mosque is believed to contain the tomb of Hazrat Yunusas and so we prayed at the grave, and then proceeded to the house of our Ahmadi brother.
On the way, we saw some children breaking stones on the street; I had no idea what they were doing. After passing by, we saw a group of Israeli soldiers standing by their big vehicles and blocking the road. I was shocked as I was seeing the people being so normal with the military presence and understood their struggle to live in such an area.
Nevertheless, we visited the house of Sadr Jamaat Palestine South, where a number of Ahmadi brothers had gathered.
The next day was a Friday. We organised a small gathering before the Jumuah prayer. I addressed the brothers on the 10 conditions of bai‘at outlined by the Promised Mesisahas and shed light on the fact that the main purpose of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya was to increase the standard of taqwa and our relationship with Allah, rather than merely inclining towards philosophical and logical arguments in matters of faith.
After this short speech, Shams-ud-deen Sahib led us in Jumuah prayer.
Alhamdulillah, we were able to visit two houses, meet with 11 Ahmadi brothers and had discussions with four non-Ahmadi Muslim brothers – who belong to the same family – about Ahmadiyyat.
