Sadiq Ahmad Butt, Missionary and President Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya, Turkey
On 23 February 2020, Musleh-e-Maud Day took place in Istanbul, the famous metropole of Turkey. It was attended by over 30 Ahmadis.
In respect to the number of participants, it might be perceived as a relatively small gathering. Certainly, there are a lot of places in the world where meetings of this kind are held in remembrance of the great prophecy about the Musleh-e-Maud and are attended by far more people.
However, the reason why I felt myself urged to write these lines, is the fact that in a place like Istanbul, this Jalsa was attended by Ahmadis belonging to 7 different nations; Turkey, Pakistan, Syria, Jordan, Algeria, Kirgizstan and Afghanistan.
Though the prophecy of Musleh-e-Maud has been fulfilled with all its magnitude, this gathering was also in, in its own respect, a proof of the fulfilment of Allah’s promise to the Promised Messiahas about his promised son that, “His fame will spread to the ends of the earth and people will be blessed through him.”
