Members of Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Organization, (Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya) have paid a welfare visit to government school for the blind in Ikere Ekiti State on 12th January, 2020.
The visitation was led by the State Youth leader (Qaid), Bro Abdulazeez Abdullateef Sahib and the State Welfare Secretary, Bro Yusuf Wasiu Sahib.
The youth leader introduced the Majlis Khuddam to members of the staff and students of the school, stating that the purpose of the visit was to show the beauty of Islam which says welfare should be made to all members of the society irrespective of their health status.
He further stated that Majlis programmes which includes tree planting campaign, ride for peace and free health care, among others are conceptualized to show love to humanity.
The State Qaid, meanwhile, advised the students to see themselves as part of the society and discard any feeling of inferiority complex.
Responding, the Representative of the School Principal, Mr Sheidu S.W. appreciated the visit, as he stated that Islam is known to be a religion of peace, and atrocities committed by criminals are not the true representation of the Islam and cannot be found in the Holy Qur’an.
Mr Sheidu S.W. enlightened the Khuddam on the need to encourage people with disabilities on the streets to come to special centres where they will be well taken care of academically and morally rather than begging on streets.
He also urged the youths to keep in touch with them occasionally so that the students won’t feel abandoned by the society.
Prayers was said for the students and the teachers alike, while gifts were presented to them.
A total of 40 Majlis members were present at the visitation.
