    Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Canada held its National Tabligh Day on 19 March 2023. In this event, the members visited communities, towns, and cities assigned to them. Once there, they distributed “Explore Islam” flyers by knocking on doors and speaking to residents. Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Canada launched the “Explore Islam Campaign” in December 2022. Its purpose is to educate about the true teachings of Islam, its commonalities with other faiths, its distinctive features, and how they lead to a life of peace, serenity, and fulfilment. Over 126 such places have been visited so far.

    The Tabligh Day began with members gathering in their local mosques for congregational Tahajjud prayer.

    The members from the British Columbia region participated enthusiastically in this event. The areas that were assigned to the region included the community of Aldergrove, and the cities of Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, Prince George, and Victoria. Many Lajna members also joined their respective families for flyer distribution. A total of 1,200 flyers were distributed across the Region.

    Faxing a letter for prayers to Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa started the Tabligh Day activities for Brampton East Imarat. The areas assigned included the village of Dundalk, the community of Elora, and the towns of Fergus, Georgetown, Shelburne, and Stayner. At around 11am, all participating members gathered at their respective assigned places. They offered a congregational silent prayer and left for their assigned destinations. The event concluded at around 4pm. Members from across all auxiliary organisations participated. A total of 87 members participated and about 2,000 flyers were distributed. A resident of Dundalk said, “I have many Muslim friends, and I am aware that misconceptions about Islam are widespread in today’s age. However, I wish you good luck with your work”. Upon receiving the “Explore Islam” flyer, a French immersion teacher at the Peel District School Board commented that she is doing similar programmes in her school and the information on this flyer will be helpful.

    About 150 members of Brampton West Imarat gathered at the Mubarak Mosque at 9am. The assigned towns were within a 2-hour drive of the mosque. Many people mentioned that they received the message of Islam for the first time.

    In total, more than 66,100 flyers were distributed across Canada in 116 communities by 1,900 volunteers in just one day.
