    Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Kenya’s Nairobi Region held its ijtema on 18-19 March 2023, at the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission Headquarters Mosque in Nairobi.

    The event began with the recitation from the Holy Quran with its Swahili translation, followed by the Khuddamul Ahmadiyya pledge and an Urdu poem.

    This was followed by opening remarks from the regional qaid.

    The first speech of the ijtema was delivered by a mu‘allim, Salim Omar Sahib on the “Importance of Establishing Prayer”. The second speech was on the “Importance of Financial Sacrifices”, by my humble self.

    After the Asr prayer, the khuddam and atfal participated in various academic competitions, after which the Maghrib and Isha prayers were offered.

    Members then remained in the mosque and watched the repeat telecast of Hazrat Amirul Momineen’saa recent Friday sermon. Thereafter, all khuddam had a discussion session with Sadr Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Kenya, Shabir Ombango Sahib. Sadr Sahib called upon all khuddam from the Nairobi Region to first realise their responsibilities as khuddam, and work towards fulfilling these obligations. He cited examples of khuddam who were persecuted by enemies in Bangladesh recently. He said we should thank Allah for being in a country where we can pray and organise our programmes without fear and that we should be ready to offer any sacrifice for the defence of our faith and country. Dinner was later served and all retired to bed, marking the end of the first successful day.

    At 4:30am on 19 March, the khuddam and atfal woke up for Tahajjud and Fajr prayers, followed by Dars-ul-Quran. After breakfast, sports competitions commenced at 8am.

    The closing session for the ijtema commenced at 11:20am with the recitation from the Holy Quran, followed by the Khuddamul Ahmadiyya pledge and an Arabic qasidah written by the Promised Messiahas.

    A speech then followed on the “Importance of Watching MTA” by Naeem Mulembo Sahib, and a Swahili poem in praise of the Holy Prophetsa recited by khuddam from Dandora Jamaat. The next speech was on “Honour your Pledge” by Sheikh Adnan Hashmi Sahib.

    Amir and the missionary-in-charge Kenya, Tariq Mahmood Zafar Sahib gave prizes to winners in both academic and sports competitions and addressed the attendees. The event concluded with a silent prayer.

    A total of 66 khuddam and atfal from four jamaats in the Nairobi region attended the ijtema.
