Majlis Atfal-ul Ahmadiyya Hertfordshire planned a two day trip in the North, whereby it commenced with a trip up to Baitul Afiyat in Sheffield on Friday 19th of February. 22 Atfal and 5 Khuddam/Ansar were involved in the trip. After spending the night in Sheffield and having a light breakfast in the morning, the journey was undertaken to go Manchester via a route which passed through Peak District. This was a nice scenic route through the heart of Peak District and the boys much enjoyed the nice natural beauty of the area. Our destination in Manchester was Old Trafford stadium, whereby we were scheduled for time to spend in the museum, followed by a stadium tour. The stadium tour was much comprehensive as we were able to visit various stadium stands, the changing rooms, the entrance tunnel, the pitch side, the dugout and other historic parts of the stadium. After this splendid tour we made our way to Darul Aman mosque in Manchester. We firstly offered our Zuhr & Asr salaat upon arrival, which was followed by a late lunch. The boys were then permitted time to play badminton and table tennis within the mosque facilities. This was throughly enjoyed by the boys and many didn’t wish to leave! Our trip concluded with Maghrib & Ishaa salaat at the mosque before making our return journey back home to the various parts of Hertfordshire region. Alhamdolillah overall a very successful and enjoyable trip for the Atfal from Hertfordshire.
