April 21, 2024, Ash Manor Sports Centre, Ash

By the immense grace and mercy of Allah the Almighty, Majlis Ansarullah Aldershot North was privileged to host its Local Ijtema on the auspicious day of April 21, 2024. The event was orchestrated under the divinely inspired theme ‘Ibaad-i-Sa’liheen – The Righteous Servants,’ mirroring our collective aspiration to tread the path of the righteous and serve humanity in the footsteps of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

Spiritual Preparation and Prayers

In the weeks leading to this spiritually charged day, the Ijtema Committee, established specifically for this purpose, engaged in meticulous planning and preparation. Our efforts commenced with a humble plea for prayers to our beloved Huzur-e-Anwar, ensuring that every step was taken under his spiritual guidance. Distinguished guests such as Sadr Majlis Ansarullah UK, Sahibzada Mirza Waqs Ahmad Sahib, and Zaeem-e-Ala sahib Muqami Region, Rana Saleem-ul-Allah Khan Sahib, were invited to partake in and bless our gathering.

Engagement and Participation

The Saiqeen System was employed effectively to personally reach out to every member of our Majlis, complemented by regular communications through WhatsApp, thus fostering a robust turnout. Alhamdolillah, we achieved over 58% attendance, reflecting a significant increase compared to the previous year, illustrating the enthusiasm and spiritual yearning amongst our members.

Intellectual and Spiritual Stimuli

The program was richly layered with Academic and Sports competitions, interspersed with profound speeches on Medical, Educational, and Financial Sacrifice. These presentations were delivered by esteemed members of our community, offering insights into living a life dedicated to faith and service.

Special Guests and Inspirations

The highlight of the Ijtema was the gracious presence of Sadr Majlis Ansarullah UK, Sahibzada Mirza Waqas Ahmad Sahib, and Qaid Sahib Amoomi Col. Shahid Latif Sahib. Their attendance was not merely ceremonial but deeply inspirational, providing us with an invaluable opportunity for spiritual interaction and communal reflection.

Reflections and Gratitude

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Zaeem-e-Ala Sahib for his invaluable guidance and to all who attended or contributed to the Ijtema. Each moment was a testament to the blessings of Khilafat and the unity it instills in our hearts.

We pray that Allah continues to bless our efforts and allows us to grow in spirituality, knowledge, and service to humanity. May we always strive to embody the qualities of ‘Ibaad-i-Sa’liheen in every aspect of our lives.

Join us as we continue our journey of faith and fellowship, ever responsive to the call of the Khalifa, in service to Islam and Ahmadiyyat.
