National Majlis-e-Amila Germany have Honour of Virtual Meeting with World Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community
Always consider all success and progress of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community to be a result of God’s Grace and Mercy – Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad
On 18 October 2020, the National Majlis-e-Amila (Executive) of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Germany was granted a virtual official meeting and audience with the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad.
His Holiness presided the meeting from his office in Islamabad, Tilford, whilst the National Amila members joined from the Baitus Sabuh Mosque in Frankfurt, which serves as the National Headquarters of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Germany.
During the seventy-five minute meeting, the Amila members had the opportunity to present a report about their respective departments and to receive the guidance and instructions of His Holiness on a range of issues.
Whilst addressing the National Secretary Taleem (Educational Affairs), His Holiness instructed the Taleem Department to guide Ahmadi Muslim students throughout their secular education.
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“The Taleem department should pay attention to the educational needs of all Ahmadi Muslim students in Germany. Keep a personal contact with them and guide them so that they know that you are always there to support them and have a sincere interest in their welfare. There are some Ahmadi Muslim children in Germany whose parents are not particularly well educated and so if you show genuine interest in their schooling and education it will motivate and encourage them to work hard in their studies and it will also serve to guide their parents.”
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad continued:
“In addition, there are other parents who are consumed by their jobs and professional careers and so they are neglecting the education of their children. Thus, the Taleem Department must work extremely diligently to help all Ahmadi Muslim children as they progress through their education. You should guide and counsel them and always keep in mind that we do not want the potential and talent of a single Ahmadi Muslim youth to ever be wasted.”
His Holiness spoke about the need for the Tarbiyyat Department in Germany, charged with the moral training of the members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, to increase the scope of its activities.
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“How many Ahmadi Muslims in Germany are there that through your efforts are now regular in the Tahajjad prayer? How many people are now offering the five daily prayers in congregation as a result of your efforts? How many more people are now reciting the Holy Quran daily and reflecting upon its deeper meanings? Remember, as the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community continues to grow, and as we move further away from the era of the Prophethood of the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him), and, especially at this particular time where direct contact of Ahmadi Muslims with the Khalifa of the Time is less (due to COVID-19 restrictions), it is imperative that those serving in the administration of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community work even harder and develop better events and programmes to ensure the moral training of our members.”
Regarding how Amila members should strive to fulfil their duties, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“Progress and success in any work requires a person to constantly self-analyse. A person who truly wants to fulfil his duties within the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community administration is he or she who continues to explore new avenues and find new and better ways to work. Successful people are those who reflect honestly upon their weaknesses and earnestly seek to correct them.”
Speaking of the importance of humility at all times, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“Never consider any success or progress of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community to be due to your individual efforts or your own personal success. Rather, always consider it to be due solely to the Grace and Mercy of Allah the Almighty and consider that you must thereafter act with even greater levels of humility.”
