Important Information for Atfal

As part of the gradual easing of restrictions, we are excited to announce that Atfal over the ages of 12 can attend the National Ijtema. Although those aged between 12-15 do not need to be vaccinated before attending, we require everyone to have a negative Lateral Flow Test at least 24 hours prior to attending.


Due to the restrictions that we have had to put in place, unfortunately this year we cannot accommodate parents to attend as in previous years. If you have any concerns for your son, then please contact the Local Nazim Atfal or the Local Qaid so that they can facilitate any needs for your son. Alternatively, you can contact us on
