This Munajat marked the end of the five-day long Bishwa Ijtema

The 54th Bishwa Ijtema has ended following the Akheri Munajat, final prayers, with supporters of Indian preacher Maulana Muhammad Saad Al Kandhalvi seeking blessings and peace for the Muslim Ummah and Bangladesh.

The Munajat began around 11:47am on the banks of the Turag River, in Tongi, on Tuesday; marking the end of the five-day-long Bishwa Ijtema.

Maulana Muhammad Shamim of Delhi's Nizamuddin Markaz of Tabligh Jamaat led the Munajat, which ended at 12:02pm.

Devotees have been congregating at the Ijtema grounds since February 16 to take part in the Akheri Munajat.

Around 1200 people from 36 countries participated in the Bishwa Ijtema until Tuesday morning, confirmed a Tabligh Jamaat top elder Engineer Mahfuzur Rahman.

Delhi Maulana Muhammad Shamim started his Hedayati Bayan around 7:30am. He said: "Those people who will follow the teachings of Islam and follow the ideals of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) will gain immense success in the world as well as the Hereafter." 

He further said: "People need to be in the environment of a mosque to strengthen their iman [faith]. Muslims not praying the namaz is out of the question. Namaz has to be performed the way the Prophet (SAW) used to perform it. A person should be persuaded to go to a mosque, not be forced.

He also said everyone needs to learn how to perform a namaz properly as praying can prevent people from committing sins.

State Minister for Youth and Sports Zahid Ahsan Russel, and Gazipur City Corporation Mayor and Metropolitan Awami League General Secretary Advocate Jahangir Alam, attended the Munajat, along with other administration and political leaders.
