Local and Regional Lajna UK Presidents Mulaqat
On Saturday, 16 February 2019, local and regional Lajna Imaillah UK presidents were blessed to be granted a mulaqat with Hazrat Amirul Momineen, Khalifatul Masih V, may Allah strengthen his hand.
131 local sadrs and 15 regional sadrs from across the country attended. This was a historic occasion as it was the first time Lajna Imaillah UK were privileged to have this opportunity.
During the course of the mulaqat, the sadrs were given the opportunity to seek guidance and ask questions of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih(aa). The questions asked were on a wide variety of topics including tarbiyat issues being faced in their majlis, integration of new converts into the Jamaat, effective methods of tabligh, chanda collection, raising children and how to re-establish contact with members who no longer attend Jamaat functions.
Hazrat Amirul Momineen(aa) graciously provided guidance and wisdom regarding the various issues raised. Huzoor(aa) repeatedly stressed the need for sadrs to work on reforming themselves first and to show patience and love to their members. Huzoor(aa) also guided on the importance of developing strong personal relationships between sadrs and Lajna members and reminded them that tarbiyat training takes time.
The mulaqat ended just before Zuhr, where the sadrs were very fortunate to offer their prayers behind their beloved Imam(aa).
Alhamdolillah, the feedback received was overwhelmingly positive. Many sadrs expressed their gratitude to Huzoor(aa) for giving them so much of his precious time and for the loving guidance he shared. Many expressed how memorable the experience was and how they now felt inspired and re-energised to discharge their duties.
May Allah enable all of us to better serve the Jamaat and Lajna Imaillah and discharge our duties to the best of our abilities.
