The Fifth Executive Council Meeting for the term 2011 to 2014 took place on 22 and 23 June 2013 in Wessex, UK. Hosted by the Wessex Jamaat in the newly constructed Al Mahdi Centre, the EXCO was well attended by Councillors representing various regions across the world including Africa, Middle East, Pakistan, India, North America and Europe.
Hours of time and preparation went into ensuring that the meeting was a success. During the meeting, there were reports and presentations from several people from The World Federation President and Vice President, the Secretary General, as well as the Office Bearers, Assistant Secretary Generals, managers, and councillors.
Have you ever thought about what it is like in between these meetings and presentations? When representatives of the Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri community come together, it is a forum for dialogue, conversation, understanding and unity. The time that the delegates have together serves as an opportunity to not only work together to meet goals and objectives but to get to know one another and create bonds that can span across the oceans.
Here is a look into the world of EXCO beyond just reports and presentations:
Bilal Campus once again commemorated the martyrdom ‘Shahabad’ of the Holy Lady Hazrat Fatemah (SA) on 3rd Jammadil al Thanni (4 April 2014), with various programmes at both the School and the Hawza.
One of the diseases that afflict the heart is hardness of the heart, a spiritual disease that prevents a human being from accepting the truth, and from submitting to, or having awe for, a Higher Authority.
