Upon arrival, His Holiness unveiled a plaque to commemorate the event before leading a silent prayer in thanks to God Almighty.Thereafter, His Holiness inaugurated the Mosque by leading the Zuhr and Asr prayers.

Following the prayers, His Holiness met local Ahmadi Muslims and distributed sweets to children.

Whilst speaking to Ahmadi Muslims in the Mosque, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:“It is not just enough to build this Mosque and to remain satisfied. Rather, now it is your duty to ensure that this Mosque remains full at all times.”

The Baitul Afiyat Mosque was purchased in 2008 and over the next few years it was re-developed into a Mosque.

A special distinction of this Mosque was that the vast majority of the cost was funded by Lajna Imaillah Canada (Ahmadiyya Ladies Auxiliary Organisation).
