by Faarieya: JALSA FROM 7 SEAS AWAY
by Faarieya, Pakistan
“Therefore remember Me (by praying, glorifying), I will remember you, and be grateful to Me (for My countless Favors on you) and never be ungrateful to Me.”
The Holy Quran, Chapter 2 Verse 153
I am an Ahmadi Muslim, living in a state which has declared me a non-Muslim and which promotes vile attacks on my faith. This terror is increasing rapidly day by day. Yet, when I think about the blessings Allah has given to the Jamaat in Pakistan, these attacks seem to appear futile and pose no threat to my faith.
Living in Pakistan, I am excluded from the direct benefits of a Jalsa in my country. So MTA International has thus played a vital role in allowing millions like me to reap full benefits from it. Since 2000, I have had MTA in my house and therefore, each year, through the blessings of MTA, I am lucky enough to count myself among those who raise slogans praising Him and His creation.
