Abdul Samee Khan,
With the expansion of Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya Ghana and a growing need for workspace, MKA Ghana recently obtained a piece of land close to the headquarters at Accra.
The members of Khuddamul Ahmadiyya in Ghana amount to 18,000 while they have been able to raise a contribution of 15,000,000 Ghanaian Cedis ($350,000).
The construction of this building began on 25 August 2015 through Waqar-e-Amal (voluntary labour) by Amir Sahib and a group of Khuddam.
Hazrat Amirul Momineen, Khalifatul Masih Vaa sent a brick which he prayed upon to be used as the foundation stone. Mirza Mahmud Ahmad Sahib, Central Auditor, London, laid the foundation stone which Huzooraa had prayed upon, on 23 October 2015, after which the Khuddam erected the building within a short period.
On Sunday 8 April 2018, members of Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya and office bearers, all in their uniforms, received guests, controlled traffic and car parking, made arrangements for food and prepared the venue.
The programme commenced with the recitation of the Holy Quran, followed by an Arabic poem and songs of praise after which Sadr Sahib welcomed the guests. The former Sadr gave a brief history of the building as he continued to serve as the chairman of the project building committee after his tenure elapsed.
Finally, Amir Sahib delivered his address and congratulated Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya for the building’s completion after which he also encouraged the Ansar to complete their building (which is still under construction).
Amir Sahib then proceeded to the ribbon cutting and thereafter unveiled the plaque, thereby officially launching the building. This was concluded with prayers.
All guests went in to have a look at the interior of the building after which food was served.
The building comprises of two storeys and has been installed with all necessary facilities. Aside from the various offices of the Majlis, there is also a hall, meeting room, MTA office, record room and a computer room. On the bottom floor are guest rooms with all necessary facilities in them.
The new furniture has been skilfully and excellently made. Huzooraa directed that Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya should keep taking care of the building.
