Ahmadiyya Muslim Community’s annual convention continues in UK 

During a faith inspiring address at the 47th Jalsa Salana UK, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (Jamaat), Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad announced that more than 540,000 people had joined the Community during the past year. His Holiness announced the figure whilst giving a detailed report of the global activities of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat. 

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad also informed that the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat had now been established in 204 countries of the world. During the past year the Jamaat had spread to two new countries – Costa Rica and Montenegro. 

It was further announced that during the past year the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat had built or acquired 394 new Mosques. These included new Mosques in Canada, Germany and Spain which had been personally inaugurated by Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat had also acquired 121 new Mission Houses or Centres.

As a means to serve Islam, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat had now translated the Holy Quran into 71 different languages, whilst numerous other books had been published or translated in an effort to further the cause of true and peaceful Islam. 

As a means to serve humanity, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat had further increased the scope of its charitable projects in various parts of the world. In particular, His Holiness mentioned the ‘Water for Life’ project through which clean, running water was being provided to thousands of deprived people in remote parts of Africa. His Holiness said that such projects were of the utmost importance as they were a means of alleviating the suffering of those most in need.

Earlier in the day, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad directly addressed members of Lajna Imaillah (Ladies Auxiliary Organisation). His Holiness said that people from all walks of life, of all religions and from all parts of the world had come to accept the Promised Messiah, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian. In this way the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat was uniting mankind in peace and harmony.

His Holiness counselled that justice and equality at all levels were of the utmost importance. He said peace in society began with peace within the domestic environment.

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

It is my observation that the fundamental causes for marriage breakdowns are egotism and selfishness. The truth is that if a husband and his wife treat each other with fairness and equality then there will never be any disputes. Certainly, the peace and beauty of any society is dependent upon justice and honesty at all levels.

Tomorrow marks the final day of this year’s Jalsa Salana UK. The highlights will be the International Bai’at Ceremony and the concluding address of Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad.

  1. One question..why a hindu or christian or african when converts to islam starts hating his own culture religion,his own land and non converts has no love for life and love for other even animals , become jihadis to serve only saudis.
    Does any one knows where God lives , Does any one knows what happens after death. All written about this is base less and have no proof .Only fact a culture should be love all respect all and love to live and serve the nature. Any killing and destruction should be punished so no one in future should dare.

  2. سبحان اللہ وبحمدہ سبحان اللہ العظیم
    اللہمہ صلی علی محمد و علی آل محمد

    Many warm deep congratulations to new converted lovely hearts entry in the fold of Allah’s hand.

  3. The reason for the progress of the Ahmadiyah jama’at is that there is no politics or bigotry Ahmadiyah Islam. All principles are based on sound reasoning. They are rational. On top of all, there is “Love for all and hatred for none.”

    The Ahmadis are peaceful Muslims. They do not believe in any kind of killing, specially killing for the difference of faith. They sacrifice their time and money, and even life for the sake of truth.

    A figure of 5,40,000 new converts to Ahmadiyat (worldwide) in one year shows very good progress. Al Hamdu Lillah.

    • And of course the institution of Khilafat. If all the Ahmadiyya Communities worldwide would not have the unity of Khilafat they would not be effecitive. I used the example that if you have a box of matches. If you try to brake one match at a time it is easy of course, but you cannot break all the matches if they are together in one bunch (as the Ahmadi-Muslims are under the Khalifa).

  4. The Ahmadiyas are also devout Muslims who have been subjected to much physical violence in Pakistan and Indonesia (recently).
    I feel that the people (insaniyat) of World should love all human beings,and other creatures who are the creation of the One God.
    One should be allowed to pursue his faith via any religion that he or she is comfortable with – be it Hinduism, Jainism, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Taoism, Sikhism or Humanism (as espoused by followers of Sai Baba).
    All these religions are like a River that flows into a Mighty Ocean.
    Humanity should c-exist and live inn harmony with all followers of different faith.
    The Prophet of Islam was a great Man who respect everyone.
    The feuds that we are having all over the World rtruly has nothing to do with the followers of all religions. The culprits are politicians and others who misinterprete the religious texts to advance their own motives.
    A lawyer will always try to take advantage of the law and have it interpreted to serve his purpose.
    Peace Be Upon all HIS Creations.

  5. Well said Sukhdev Singh Gill, Thank you. I may present a verse of the Quran to support your views:
    [2:63] Surely, the Believers, and the Jews, and the Christians and the Sabians — whichever party from among these truly believes in Allah and the Last Day and does good deeds — shall have their reward with their Lord, and no fear shall come upon them, nor shall they grieve.
    This verse is telling that all well behaving persons of any faith will have their reward with their Lord and they will have no fear and no sorrow. The condition beside their belief is good behavior. So any peaceful person of any faith will be rewarded.

    Please note that Muslims are included in this as the first party. They need to learn lessons of good behavior to benefit. Otherwise there is severe warning for the so-called Muslims who are disturbing peace in the world.

  6. Thank you Ghulam Sarwar, May the Good Lord Bless you, your family and those that are like you in thoughts. I personally always have high and profound respects for the Muslims. Guru Nanak was a Saint who had high respects for Muslims and even went to Mecca on a pligrimage with his Muslim followers.
    Haji Mohamed Rafi, the greatest singer from India was a living example of a kind Muslim. I love the hyms on Sikhism sung by him as well as the Muslim hyms.
    I am a Singaporeans but have always been well-received by the Muslims in their mosques in Amritsar, Punjab.
    The foundation of the Golden Temple was laid by a Muslim Saint.
    As a child my late mum and dad (both Sikhs) use to bring us to various Muslims shrines in Singapore.
    Finally Maharajah Ranjit Singh’s Court had many Muslim ministers and advisors.
    Guru Gobind Singh received so much of help from the Muslims, especially during huis defeat at Machiwala.
    May my Muslim brothers and sisters and their parents and children always be protected by the One and Only Good Lord.

  7. Dear Sukhdev Singh Gill,
    Thank you for your prayers. Baba Guru Nanak Jee (sahib) was a true Saint. He was beloved of the One God. He lead his people to the right path of peace and love.

    I see that Sikh nation is a brave nation. They are honest and hard working. They love their faith (religion). They spend out of their pockets for the sake of their faith. We have never seen any Sikh begging. The Sikhs have their (big) Gurdawaras in nearly all places in the world. Those places of worship cannot be built without sacrifice.

    Recently we saw a good example of Sikh Charity in India where, during rainy season, they called the Muslims to offer Eid prayers in their Gurdawara. Thereby, they set a good example of acting on the way (Sunnah) of our holy prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.s.) who allowed the delegation of 60 Christians of Najran to live and pray in his own mosque in Madinah.

  8. Despite their increasing use of social media, 54 per cent of small businesses acknowledge they might make use of some
    assist in increasing their social media skills.
