Hertfordshire - Trip to North 19 to 20 February 2016


Majlis Atfal-ul Ahmadiyya Hertfordshire planned a two day trip in the North, whereby it commenced with a trip up to Baitul Afiyat in Sheffield on Friday 19th of February. 22 Atfal and 5 Khuddam/Ansar were involved in the trip. After spending the night in Sheffield and having a light breakfast in the morning, the journey was undertaken to go Manchester via a route which passed through Peak District. This was a nice scenic route through the heart of Peak District and the boys much enjoyed the nice natural beauty of the area. Our destination in Manchester was Old Trafford stadium, whereby we were scheduled for time to spend in the museum, followed by a stadium tour. The stadium tour was much comprehensive as we were able to visit various stadium stands, the changing rooms, the entrance tunnel, the pitch side, the dugout and other historic parts of the stadium. After this splendid tour we made our way to Darul Aman mosque in Manchester. We firstly offered our Zuhr & Asr salaat upon arrival, which was followed by a late lunch. The boys were then permitted time to play badminton and table tennis within the mosque facilities. This was throughly enjoyed by the boys and many didn't wish to leave! Our trip concluded with Maghrib & Ishaa salaat at the mosque before making our return journey back home to the various parts of Hertfordshire region. Alhamdolillah overall a very successful and enjoyable trip for the Atfal from Hertfordshire.

On the 18th of December by the Grace of Allah, Khuddam Ul Ahmadiyya and Atfal Ul Ahmadiyya Milton Keynes visited the local children's ward at Milton Keynes hospital to deliver them gifts and toys for the festive season. The preparations for this started several months ago where Khuddam, Atfal and other Jamaat members were requested to donate to some new toys to this great cause. By the Grace of Allah, there was an overwhelming response by members and many good quality toys were donated. Qaid sahib, along with several other members visited the ward to donate the toys. We also donated some small gifts and chocolate to the staff of the hospital, which they were very appreciative of. The staff were also very grateful and praised the fact that we had donated to these toys. We were told that these toys would be very beneficial to the children that would be spending the festive season in hospital. Some of the toys that we donated were very specific learning/sensory toys and again the staff were very appreciative of this. After further discussion with the play leader on the ward we were told that they are still quite short of volunteers. Qaid sahib as well as some other Khuddam members volunteered to be trained as volunteers so they can work as volunteers regularly within the ward. This will become a regular event within Milton Keynes Qiadat Insha'Allah.
