On the 10th of November 2019, Wolverhampton Jamat was given the opportunity by the grace of Allah to lay 2 wreaths on behalf of Muslims.
The first wreath was laid down by the local president of Wolverhampton Jamat, Dr Maqsood Sayed sahib, who was representing Ahmadiyya Muslim Association; this was a spectacular event where hundreds of people were gathered in order to remember those that fought for this country, regardless of their skin complexion or faith.
The second wreath was laid down by a member of Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association, a representative who was chosen to walk alongside the president and lay his wreath besides the previous one.
Both representatives then followed long and steep stairs into the cathedral, alongside all different faith groups to hear a multi-faith speech which was inclusive and heart-warming. By the grace of Allah, the only Muslim representation on this day was that of Ahmadi Muslims.
