For many, this was the first time they saw Hudhur (abta) in person and for others, this was another amazing opportunity to serve once again. Whether it was before our beloved Hudhoor’s (atba) arrival, during his stay and into Jalsa Salana USA and even up until the moment Hudhoor (atba) departed for Canada, Atfal were volunteering in whatever way they could. Atfal worked in various departments during the Jalsa and completed everything that was asked of them. Atfal were assigned to specific teams under the department of Khidmat-e-Khalq, including the refreshments team, the parking team and even security. Despite the sweltering summer heat, Atfal were ready and prepared to carry out their duties and remained positive even when the weather was uncomfortable. In fact, this is a beauty of Jalsa Salana that young boys developed a love for volunteering and helping the guests of Hadhrat Masih Maud (as). InshAllah, it will be these young Atfal who will organize and carry the responsibilities of Jalsa Salana in the future. From Jalsa Salana USA, many of these busy Atfal would find themselves only a few weeks later at the National Ijtema in Milwaukee, with the excitement of Hudhoor’s trip still in their minds and hearts. At the end of this summer, these rising stars will always remember the summer of 2012 to be a very exciting and blessed one. May Allah countlessly bless all the Atfal who helped in any capacity during this year’s Jalsa Salana and during Hudhoor’s (atba) U.S. tour. May Allah create a great passion of service in their hearts and enablet hem to become the future custodians of the Jamaat, InshAllah. Ameen.
