Two young volunteers from Canada, Haris Ahmad Sahib and Zeeshan Akif Sahib, dedicated their summer to assisting Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Jamaica. Both 7th-year students of Jamia Ahmadiyya Canada arrived in Jamaica in early August and immediately immersed themselves in a whirlwind of activities aimed at nurturing faith, knowledge, and brotherhood. One of their significant contributions was in the field of media. Haris Sahib and Zeeshan Sahib took on the responsibility of making news reports for MTA. These reports not only showcased the activities of the Jamaica Jamaat but also enriched the historical records of our Jamaat. Apart from this, the volunteers actively engaged in various community events. They distributed 4,000 flyers, spreading the message of Islam to the wider community. They also played a pivotal role in educational activities, conducting classes for our nau-mubai‘een (new converts), and teaching them basic Islamic principles.
Haris Sahib and Zeeshan Sahib were instrumental in managing two back-to-school events, drawing over 300 eager participants. They also contributed to a health fair, facilitating access to medical care for hundreds of attendees.
Zeeshan Akif Sahib designed a captivating Holy Quran exhibition for our mosque, enhancing the educational resources available to Jamaat members and guests alike.
Their conduct and tireless dedication left a lasting impression on the Jamaica Jamaat. Their service not only enriched the local community but also strengthened the bonds of brotherhood that unite Ahmadi Muslims worldwide.
As the volunteers return to Canada, the Jamaica Jamaat expresses heartfelt gratitude for their invaluable contributions.
