UK Missionaries held their second Refresher Course starting on 22 February and running until 1 March 2019 at Fazl Mosque, London.
Following instructions and guidance from Hazrat Khalifatul Masih V (aa), the refresher course was organised by Ataul Mujeeb Rashed Sahib, Missionary In-charge UK and his team.
This year, in addition to the field missionaries, those missionaries working in UK Jamaat’s various offices also participated in the refresher course.
Missionaries were blessed with the opportunity to offer their five daily prayers behind Hazrat Khalifatul Masih V (aa) whilst also observing Jumua prayers at Baitul Futuh Mosque. The missionaries also had the honour of calling the azan for each prayer, delivering dars of the Holy Quran after Fajr prayers, teaching the translation of the Holy Quran after Asr prayers and delivering dars from the writings of the Promised Messiah (as) after Isha prayers at the Fazl Mosque.
A daily programme was made which included Tahajjud prayer, morning walk, recitation of the Quran and studying the commentary of the Holy Quran by the Promised Messiah (as) as well as reading the book Kashti-e-Nuh (Noah’s Ark) and Al-Wasiyyat (The Will).
Over the eight days, a total of twenty-six lectures were also delivered and nine panel discussions were held by various scholars of the Jamaat. The lectures and panel discussions covered a vast range of subjects, from religious to departmental; from health-related issues to tarbiyat-related matters. Equally, mutual discussions were held in which experiences, issues and their solutions, as well as faith inspiring incidents were shared and discussed amongst the missionaries.
The highlight of the refresher course was the blessed opportunity for the missionaries to meet Hazrat Khalifatul Masih V (aa), may Allah strengthen his hand, receive his guidance and also have a photograph with him.
May Allah shower His abundant blessings on all those who organised and participated in the refresher course and always strengthen and support our beloved Imam with His Mighty Help.
