Lubna Saqib, Assistant General Secretary, Lajna Imaillah Germany
Members of the national amila of Lajna Imaillah Germany were granted the blessed opportunity of a virtual mulaqat with Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa on 27 March 2021. The amila members gathered in Bait-us-Sabuh, the headquarters of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Germany in Frankfurt.
Huzooraa most graciously granted more than one hour of his precious time and all the amila members had the opportunity to seek guidance from beloved Huzooraa regarding their respective departments, alhamdulillah.
When the good news of being granted a virtual mulaqat was received, there were many mixed emotions. There was an overwhelming joy about being bestowed this blessed and unique opportunity, but also a great awareness of responsibility and feeling of humility regarding our humble efforts.
In preparation for the mulaqat, special attention was given to prayers, nawafil and sadaqaat.
Finally, the blessed day arrived, which everybody was eagerly waiting for. The moment we saw Huzooraa on the screen, we instantly felt the love and blessings filling the room. Huzooraa most lovingly spoke to all amila members and granted precious guidance on various matters, alhamdulillah.
Below are some impressions of amila members following this blessed audience:
Amatul Jameel Ghazala, Naib Sadr and National Secretary Taleem, said:
“Prior to the mulaqat […] I tried to do as much tasbih-o-tahmid, durood sharif and istighfar as possible. Beloved Huzooraa guided us in such a light and loving way, so affectionately and gently, that all worries and anxiety were blown away. It seemed as if all of us were under a spell. This was the magnificent aura of Khilafat which addressed us.
“May Allah enable us to fulfil our responsibilities according to the desires of beloved Huzooraa. Amin.”
Zubaria Ahmad, Naib Sadr and National Secretary Tabligh, said:
“When it was my turn [to speak] I forgot everything I had prepared. There was only the feeling of being present in the aura of Khalifa-e-Waqt. I had thought of seeking guidance regarding how to increase the number of dai‘at ilallah, but standing in front of Huzooraa, I forgot everything I had planned.
“Huzooraa himself asked about the number of Lajna members doing active tabligh. When I presented the figure (about 3000 members) Huzooraa asked how many people were under tabligh by these dai‘at ilallah. When I said about 1900, Huzooraa remarked that the number was little and granted guidance about increasing it that each dai‘a ilallah should have one person under tabligh. I will never forget this beautiful incident that the point I was not able to present was addressed by Huzooraa himself and he granted us new motivation and encouragement. May Allah the Almighty enable us. Amin.”
Shamim Mustaqeem, Muawina Sadr for Wasaya, said:
“Alhamdulillah. When the message of virtual mulaqat with beloved Huzooraa was received, I turned to nawafil and sadaqaat. Finally, by the grace of Allah, the day arrived where we had the opportunity of directly meeting Huzooraa. After a long time, God granted us this day and the sentiments of our hearts were totally different; each moment seemed so long, but then suddenly, the moment arrived when beloved Huzooraa appeared among us and all worries were gone; all faces were enlightened and all hearts felt peace. Huzooraa distributed spiritual nourishment and we had our fill.”
Huma Noor-ul-Huda Shah Khan, Secretary San‘at-o-Dastakari, said:
“Prior to the mulaqat, there were feelings of joy that I am fortunate to be granted these blessed moments. And today, alhamdulillah, only by the grace of Allah, we were granted such beautiful moments. We sat in the blessed company of Huzooraa and witnessed Huzoor’s love and how he so lovingly asked questions – it was so wonderful. Alhamdulillah.
“I am very happy and cannot express it in words. May Allah the Almighty enable us to walk the path of His contentment. Amin.”
Fazeelat Sultana, Muawina Sadr for 100 mosques scheme, said:
“Today my heart is very much in peace and so joyful because today, I had the opportunity of virtually meeting my beloved Huzooraa. During the last weeks, watching This Week With Huzoor [on MTA] I envied how fortunate all those who were being granted the opportunity to receive Huzoor’s love and affection were.
“Alhamdulillah, today, we also had this blessed opportunity. The loving and affectionate way of Huzooraa cannot be expressed in words. Huzooraa said that if we fulfil our Jubilee mosques’ project, that would be a great achievement. I pray that we may attain this achievement. Amin.”
Rubina Ahmad, Muawina Sadr for Rishta Nata, said:
“Alhamdulillah, we cannot thank Allah enough – today was our virtual mulaqat with Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa and it was so wonderful, by the grace of Allah. It is Allah’s blessing that we saw Huzooraa directly and spoke to him. It was such a loving atmosphere and as we were sitting there, it felt as though angels had spread their wings and it was a special atmosphere. Huzooraa granted us precious advice and guidance for the different departments. I am very grateful to Allah that He granted me this opportunity.”
Wasima Hani, Assistant General Secretary, said:
“It is indeed a great blessing to be granted even only the possibility to say salaam to Huzooraa. May Allah the Almighty enable us to fulfil our responsibilities according to the desires of beloved Huzooraa. Amin.
“This was my first mulaqat as an amila member. I was very afraid about what Huzooraa might ask. But contrary to my expectations, Huzooraa was more affectionate than any loving father and granted us guidance ever so graciously. I am very fortunate to have been granted this opportunity, alhamdulillah. It seems like a dream.”
Maryam Ghaffar, National Secretary Tarbiyat, said:
“I am grateful that I could directly see Huzooraa after a long time, alhamdulillah. It was a very wonderful mulaqat. Beloved Huzooraa spoke to us in a very loving and affectionate way. I was praying so much that Huzooraa may not ask me any question but himself provide blessed guidance regarding my department. Alhamdulillah, my prayers were accepted and it happened just that way. Now we have to make every effort to implement the instructions of Huzoor-e-Aqdasaa immediately, insha-Allah”
Atia Nuur Ahmad-Hübsch, Sadr Lajna Imaillah Germany, said:
“Alhamdulillah, thumma alhamdulillah. It is indeed the grace of Allah the Almighty that we, humble servants, have been bestowed these blessed moments that beloved Huzooraa granted us a virtual mulaqat. When we received the news that beloved Huzooraa had graciously approved our request, our hearts were overwhelmed with praise for Allah the Almighty. But at the same moment, attention was also drawn towards istighfar and thinking about how we could appear before Huzooraa with our humble efforts. So all of us turned towards prayers, nawafil and sadaqaat more intensively and we all prayed continuously that Allah the Almighty may conceal our shortcomings and enable us to fulfil our responsibilities in the best manner.
“The closer the day of the mulaqat drew, mixed emotions of anxiety and joy filled our hearts more and more. Finally, by the grace of Allah the Almighty, we experienced blessed moments and we met Huzooraa who showed us love and affection.
“All amila members got the chance to talk directly to Huzooraa and received precious advice and blessed guidance, alhamdulillah.
“We are all very grateful to Huzooraa that he graciously granted us so much of his precious time and gave us instructions. Huzooraa especially emphasised the need to establish personal contacts with all Lajna members and Nasirat in order to keep them connected to their faith and to the Jamaat and save them from worldly influences. By the grace of Allah, so much motivation and enthusiasm has been gained and a new spirit has awoken that we have to make sincere and utmost efforts to strive to fulfil the expectations of our beloved Huzooraa.
“May Allah the Almighty enable us to do so and may we always be granted the blessings of Khilafat. Amin.”
