Talha Ali, National President of AMA Inc. Philippines

October 4-6,2019

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at, Philippines, conducted a three-day workshop for local Office-bearers from October 4-6, 2019. Local office-bearers from 6 branches attended the workshop which was conducted in Jama’at’s Peace Compound in Sinunuc Village, Zamboanga CIty.

The purpose of the workshop was to train the local office-bearers about their responsibilities and how to fulfill them. On the first day of the program, the office-bearers were given a detailed explanation about the system of the Jama’at. During the presentation, it was explained in detail that the system of the Jama’at is based on the institution of Khilafat and all blessings come from obedience to this divine institution. Further, the participants were briefed about Tahrik-e-Jadid Anjuman Ahmadiyya and the system of Jama’at on national and local level. The importance of obedience was also highlighted, and various excerpts were read about the expectations of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih V (aba) from the office-bearers. A lot of time was also given for Questions and Answers.

Another highlight of the workshop was that it coincided with Jalsa Salana France. This gave a chance to all the local office-bearers from different branches to listen to the Friday Sermon and Speeches of Huzur-e-Anwar (aba) live as a group.

Alhamdolillah, the workshop was very successful. Most of the attendees mentioned that the workshop improved their knowledge about the system of the Jama’at but more importantly about what is expected from them and how to go about implementing it.
