The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is pleased to announce that on 20 November 2015, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad inaugurated the Baitul Ahad Mosque (Mosque of the One God) in Nagoya, Japan. It is the first Mosque built by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in the country.
His Holiness arrived at the premises at 1pm local time and after unveiling a commemorative plaque he proceeded to deliver his weekly Friday Sermon. The sermon was broadcast live around the world on MTA International.
During his sermon, His Holiness highlighted the true purpose of a Mosque and emphasised the need for the local Ahmadi Muslims to attain the highest possible moral and spiritual standards.
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“Now this Mosque has been built it is essential that you discharge your responsibilities and duties in gratitude to Allah the Almighty. Merely to say ‘All praise be to Allah’ because we have accepted the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) or because we are Ahmadi Muslims is not enough. Thus you should worship here each day and seek to improve your moral standards and conduct and to spread the true teachings of Islam throughout this nation.”
