Syed Shamshad Nasir, Missionary, USA
Muhammad Ahmad Sahib, Secretary Tabligh Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Detroit, reports that Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Detroit held the “Messiah Has Come – Street Corner Tabligh” campaign on 25 April 2021. The campaign is part of the nationwide tabligh initiative launched in March 2021 to commemorate the Promised Messiah Day and to spread the message of the true teachings of Islam taught by the Promised Messiahas.
Members of the Jamaat gathered at the Mahmood Mosque and offered Zuhr prayer in congregation. Following the prayer, Secretary Tabligh, Muhammad Ahmad Sahib provided an overview of the campaign and necessary logistics and other details.
The missionary, Shamshad Nasir Sahib gave advice on various matters related to doing tabligh at public places and prayed for the success of the campaign. President Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Detroit, Maqbool Tahir Sahib also gave a few tips to keep in mind while engaging with others.
Following the brief session at the mosque, members proceeded to the front entrance of the mosque where they were provided with the “Messiah Has Come” posters along with tabligh flyers and other literature of the Jamaat for distribution during the campaign.
Shamshad Nasir Sahib then led the team of volunteers in silent prayer before departing for the campaign.
The campaign was conducted in the downtown area of Rochester Hills. Six groups consisting of an average of three to four people were assigned to six spots where they started displaying the “Messiah Has Come” posters. The teams included Atfal, Khuddam and Ansar as well.
Members spent around two hours in the blessed activity. During the campaign, members engaged with several individuals and answered their questions. Flyers and literature were distributed to interested individuals. Some members of the public who were interested shared their contact details too.
By the grace of Allah the Almighty, the campaign went very well and thus the message of the Promised Messiahas was conveyed to many.
