During the first three months of 2021, the amin ceremonies (when someone completes their first recitation of the Holy Quran) took place in different regions of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The youngest child of our regional missionary of Bandundu region, Najia Ahmad Sahiba, completed a round of the Holy Quran at the age of 6 years and 5 months. Her mother, Arzu Fareed Sahiba had the honour to teach her the recitation of the Holy Quran.
On 22 January 2021, an amin ceremony was held in Kikwit region. Ammatul Momin Sahiba, daughter of our regional missionary Kikwit, Atta ul Qayyum Sahib, completed the Holy Quran at the age of 6 years and 11 months. Due to the travel restrictions, Amir and Missionary-in-charge DRC, Khalid Mahmood Shahid Sahib participated via video link and listened to a portion of the Holy Quran from her. Her mother, Hibbatul Quddus Sahiba had the honour to teach her the recitation of the Holy Quran.
In Kasai region’s Luiza territory, two Khuddam; Ngueji Nsaka Muhammad Sahib and Katshiapa Mpingula Usman Sahiba completed their reading of the Holy Quran. The local missionary, Abu Bakar Mbuyi Sahib supervised them during their course of the Holy Quran. These two are the first ever Muslims in the territory to have completed a round of the Holy Quran.
May Allah enable all of us to comprehend the true teachings of the Holy Quran.
