  1. Assalamoalaikum. Really a great happy news, Alhamdolillah. Another sign of the truthfulness of the prophecies and forebodings of the promised Masih, Hadhrat Aqdus Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian. Yes!, another of his followers/members, has been given the award for the selfless services for the cause of the whole humanity, especially refugees, for the recognition of which the Active Refugee Advocacy award, was bestowed on another Ahmadi Muslim, by the grace of God. It is yet another proof that the believers/members of the Jamaat of Masih-e-Muhammadi, are continuing to serve the humanity with selfless dedication and devotion and have practically become the roll models for whole humanity, for all the time to come, IshaAllah. Hearty congratulations to Dr. Ayaz A. Iftikhar, OBE, and the UK Jama’at and the Members of worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of our beautiful global village. Wassalam.

  2. All praise to Allah(swt). We bow our heads in gratitude to the almighty. These are signs of truth of Hadhrat Maseeh Maood (AS). These are blessings of khilafat. We are seeing bounties of our creator. We should not forget that it is but for Allah’s mercies. We did not bring anything by our efforts. Only we should always be humble and pray to Allah.

  5. Dr. Iftikhar sahib truly deserves the honor. This humble one had the pleasure meeting and driving him and children around in Fiji’s capital city Suva when Dr. Iftikhar was posted to a much small island of Tuvalu as a Commonwealth Representative where he founded the island’s first Ahmadiyya Jamaat. Jazakallah Wal Hasanjaza!
