The Miracle - - Local -

Novem­ber 12th-2017 – The Bri­tish Columbia Mus­lim As­so­ci­a­tion elected Iltaf Sahib as the new in­com­ing pres­i­dent. This year’s elec­tion were de­layed by two weeks due to some tech­ni­cal in­ter­pre­ta­tions of the BCMA con­sti­tu­tion. A res­o­lu­tion was passed by the Gen­eral Coun­cil to al­low the elec­tion com­mit­tee to seek le­gal ad­vice be­fore pro­ceed­ing with the new elec­tions. Once the ad­vice was ob­tained from the lawyers, the elec­tions were con­ducted with­out much de­lay. The elected di­rec­tors from all the branches of BCMA con­vene for a gen­eral coun­cil meet­ing where nom­i­na­tions are taken from the elected of­fi­cials be­fore vot­ing for a can­di­date. After the Elec­tions the BCMA Elec­tion Com­mit­tee stated, “Br. Iltaf Sahib has been elected as the Pres­i­dent of the B.C. Mus­lim As­so­ci­a­tion for 2017 – 2019 term by the elected di­rec­tors (men/ women) of the branches and chap­ters of the As­so­ci­a­tion.” BCMA pres­i­dents serve a two-year term for a max­i­mum of two terms.

Iltaf Sahib has served as a chair­per­son for the BCMA Sur­rey East Branch for the last four years. His suc­ces­sion to the Pres­i­dent role was much ex­pected.

Nadeem Shah – the in­com­ing Chair­per­son of Masjid Rahmah Con­grat­u­lated Iltaf and stated, with “Iltaf Sahib mov­ing up to take the re­spon­si­bil­ity for the as­so­ci­a­tion, the re­spon­si­bil­ity have now shifted to me as the new chair­man of Masjid Rahmah, I ask you broth­ers to sup­port me as you have sup­ported brother ILTAF Sahib.” Br Iltaf ac­cepted the role gra­ciously and said, “Sit­u­a­tions un­folded at the meet­ing and now we are at this point. May Al­lah guide me and help brother Nadeem Shah to run this masjid even bet­ter. Nadeem and the new (old) board is to­tally ca­pa­ble and pro­fes­sional. My sup­port is 100% be­hind Br. Nadeem Shah, Shoaib Rauf and the rest of the Team.” The chair of the BCMA Board of Trust wel­comed the de­ci­sion and said, “On be­half of the Board of Trust Af­fairs, I wish to take this op­por­tu­nity to con­grat­u­late Br Iltaf Sahib on his new role as the Pres­i­dent Elect of the B.C. Mus­lim As­so­ci­a­tion. I am sure you are en­thused with this elec­tion re­sult and we are all hope­ful that in your new role you will do ev­ery­thing to unite the com­mu­nity for the sake of the Ummah of our beloved Prophet Muham­mad Sal­lalahu alaihe wasalam. The Board of Trust Af­fairs looks for­ward to work­ing with you in unity and di­ver­sity. Once again our sin­cere con­grat­u­la­tions.” From all of our read­er­ship and the man­age­ment of Mir­a­cle Me­dia we Con­grat­u­late Br Iltaf and Pray that Almighty Al­lah help him and Guide him to lead the As­so­ci­a­tion in the best in­ter­est of the Mem­ber­ship and Mus­lims of Bri­tish Columbia. May Al­lah (S.W.T) give him the strength to ful­fil his man­date to the best of his abil­ity in the ser­vice


of the Mus­lim com­mu­nity of Bri­tish Columbia.
