Alhamdulillah, we are at the closing session of our 32nd Annual National Ijtimā’. Khuddam have dedicated countless hours working tirelessly over the last few weeks and especially the past 3 days, to make it a success. The theme of the Ijtima` this year was “Namaz”.
By the Grace of Allah, this was a historic Ijtimā’. With the approval of Huzoor Anwar (may Allah be his Helper!), Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya Canada for the first time broadcast the proceedings of this Ijtimā’ Live on MTA on Saturday, July 27 at 2pm.
The highlight of this Ijtimā’ was the presence of Respected Mulana Mubashir Ahmad Kahloon Sahib (Markaz Representative, Additional Nazir Islāh-o-Irshād Da’wat Ilallāh & Mufti Silsila Ālia
Ahmadiyya). The Ijtimā’ commenced on Friday July 26, with Friday Prayers. The Friday Sermon was delivered by Respected Lal Khan Malik Sahib, Amir Jama’at Canada.
In the opening session, Respected Mulana Mubashir Ahmad Kahloon Sahib delivered a very inspirational speech on the topic of “Obedience”. On Saturday, Khuddam enjoyed a very engaging and informational Question / Answer session with Maulana Sahib.
By the grace of Allah many new features were added to the Ijtimā’ this year that include:
A New and Improved Layout of the Ijtima Gah.
- Live Radio telecast
- Live Translation of all sessions in 3 languages
- Hot Air Balloon (due to strong winds could

- Regional BBQs

By the Grace of Allah the Publicity Team, Regional Qā’idīn, and Qā’idīn Majlis helped motivate 2357 Khuddam and 282 guests who joined us this year at the National Ijtimā’. Alhamdolillah, it was an increase of 124 Khuddam (6%) from last year.
May Allah make this Ijtimā’ a source of blessings and lasting self-reformation for all Khuddam,
