Ijtemat are spiritual retreats. The main functions of ijtemat are to help us grow spiritually and strengthen our brotherhood. For the 2018 MKA USA National Ijtema, we ask that all participants agree to the simple concept of respect. Respect for others’ belongings, feelings, and health. Respect for Majlis Khuddamul-Ahmadiyya. And respect for the host site and the rules it sets forth for all its guests. By registering for the 2018 MKA USA National Ijtema, you pledge to follow these Islamic teachings of respect. If you feel that you cannot fulfill this pledge, then please do not attend the Ijtema.
