Biswa (World) Ijtema, the second largest congregation of Muslims next to Hajj began on Jan 22 and concludes on Sunday noon Jan 24, 2010 through 'Akheri Monajat'. The 3-day congregation on 150 acres of land on the bank of Turag in Tongi, Dhaka seeking divine blessings from Almighty for the Muslim Ummah was filled up with devotees by Thursday evening.

Several millions of devotees from home and more than 80 countries converged at the Ijtema venue. The countries include India, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Canada, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Thailand, Singapore, Morocco, Japan, the Philippines, Egypt, Syria, Bhutan, Indonesia, Malaysia, the USA, the UK, Australia, Nigeria, South Africa, Turkey, Italy, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark and Spain etc.

The 3-day programme includes delivering 'boyans' (sermons) on the fundamental issues of 'Tablig', prayer for the spiritual adulation, exaltation and welfare of the Muslim community. The Ijtema formally began with 'Ambayan' (general sermon) after 'Fazr' prayers at dawn on Friday.

Religious clerics from Pakistan, India and other countries have delivered their sermons that instantly interpreted into Bangla, English, Arabic, Tamil, Chinese and few other languages.

Moulana Jabayerul Hassan from India led the concluding prayers of the congregation seeking global peace and prosperity.

From today new teams (Jamaat) would go for 'Chilla' (a duration of 40 days) after the 'Akheri Munajat'.

The 'Tablig-e-Jamaat' has been organising the Ijtema since 1976. It mainly concentrates on prayers and meditation seeking blessing from Allah.
