1,200 Ahmadi Muslims gather in Chino for 26th West Coast convention

This past Christmas weekend heralded more than just the traditional church services, turkey dinners, holiday sales and gift-giving. At the Baitul Hameed Mosque on Ramona Ave. in Chino, an overflow crowd of 1,261 Ahmadi Muslims and guests filled the prayers halls and lecture auditoriums for three days of invigorating spiritual fellowship beginning on the afternoon of Friday, Dec. 23rd and ending past noon on Sunday, Dec. 25th.
Ahmadi Muslims from 36 chapters across America convened for their 26th annual West Coast convention. Most of the participants came from chapters stretching from San Diego to British Columbia, but a decent number hailed from chapters on or near the East Coast such as Philadelphia, New York and the Islamic Community’s U.S. headquarters in Silver Spring, MD.
Several dozen more came from as far away as Canada, the United Kingdom, Pakistan and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. Many of these conventioneers were national office-holders of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, which is now established in 200 countries with membership in the tens of millions.
