By the grace of Allah, the StevenageJamaat held its Tarbiyyat Day on Sunday January 17, 2016 at Chells pavilion under the instructions and guidance from the centre. All members of the Jamaat were informed about the event well in time through Saiqeens, emails, Friday announcements and Text messages. Lajna members were also invited through Sadar sahib Lajna. .
We had the privilege the National Secretary Tarbiyyat Nisar orchard sahib chaired the event.
The proceedings formally started at 10:00 am with the recitation of the Holy Quran and its translation by Mr Fakhur ul Islam sahib, president Sagheer
Ahmad sahib, thanking the Nisar Orchard sahib in his welcome address, stressed all the jammat members to pay full attention to the proceedings and get maximum benefit from it.
Following this Nisar Orchard sahib lead the audience in silent prayers before starting his well planned, comprehensive and interactive presentation. The central theme of his presentation was the characteristics of moral values which serve as the foundation stone of righteousness “Taqwa” and which in turn leads one to Allah. He focused on the aim in life and the true aim an Ahmadi should have. The presentation mainly targeted the children, a good number of them were present in the meeting.

National sectary terbiyyat stressed that one should not develop the negative and harmful effects of achievements we make during the course of life such as feeling of superiority, lavish lifestyle, dysfunctional families and arrogance. Instead humbleness should be the key to success and most liked virtue by Allah. He very interestingly built up the scenario involving the audience in asking questions at every step of his presentation. The lime light of the presentation was the symbolic ‘mountain of Taqwa’ which showed the steps leading to it with difficulties on the path to it. He also imbedded questions from the recent sermon of Hadhoor-e-Aqdus and children not only showed their keen interest in answering them but also answered most of the questions correctly.
