Aamir Shahzad, President Huddersfield South
On 13 December 2020, Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Huddersfield North and South organised a virtual Jalsa, in which presentations were delivered regarding Waqf-e-Jadid and amin ceremonies also took place (the ceremony held when one completes first reading of the Holy Quran).
Fahim Anwar Sahib, Secretary Waqf-e-Jadid UK – with his IAAAE team – joined this jalsa and delivered a talk about Waqf-e-Jadid.
Nayab Sahib shared a beautiful presentation which highlighted the humanitarian works of IAAAE in Africa that have taken place with the help of Waqf-e-Jadid funds. It showed how this blessed scheme is helping humanity all over the world.
During the lockdown, members of Huddersfield Jamaat took benefit of their spare time and helped their children in completing their first readings of the Holy Quran. During this jalsa, a few couplets from Durr-e-Sameen were recited.
Then amin ceremonies for 12 children, who had completed their first reading of the Holy Quran, were held.
In reality, all parents, Atfal and Nasirat wished to have their amin ceremony with Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa, but it was impossible due to the ongoing pandemic situation.
Neverthless, all the names of these children who had completed the first reading of the Holy Quran, along with how long it took them, were sent to Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa for prayers.
At the end, the regional missionary of Huddersfield, Sabahat Karim Sahib, advised all participants to regularly recite the Holy Quran and try to recite with it with translation and commentary as well. This blessed jalsa concluded with silent prayer.
