The Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Student Association (AMWSA) were fortunate to have a mulaqat with Hazrat Khalifatul Masih V, may Allah be his Helper, on 5 January in Islamabad.
AMWSA was established and set up by Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa in 2007 with the purpose and goal to help the spiritual training of the Lajna members of the Jamaat who are studying in university and pursuing higher studies.
In the mulaqat, 266 university students were present from 72 different universities across the UK. Among them were students studying the sciences and humanities and arts, while 22 were studying medicine and 35 who are pursuing master’s degrees and a PhDs.
The meeting started with the recitation of the Holy Quran from Surah al-Alaq, followed by a report of events held by AMWSA throughout the year.
After the report, Huzooraa enquired as to how many students were from the top 10 universities of London. The students presented well-researched presentations on their respective research areas such as the role of cytokines and endocannabinoids in BV2 microglial cells, investigating the feasibility of electricity generation using windmill powered by highway traffic and gene expression during development.
After the presentations, Hazrat Khalifatul Masihaa enquired from the students as to how many were Waqf-e-Nau.
At the end, one student asked Huzooraa whether organ donation was permissible. Answering her, Huzooraa stated that there is no prohibition in Islam and if it is done to save someone’s life, then it is fine.
