Laiq Ahmed Atif, President, Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Malta
Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Malta held an Eid reception on 23 April 2023, which was also attended by 50 non-Muslim guests from Nanniet Malta or “Grandparents’ Foundation of Malta”.
The event started with the recitation from the Holy Quran followed by speeches by the founder of Nanniet Malta, Mr Philip Chircop, and my humble self.
After this, a documentary, titled ‘One Community One Leader’ was shown. It is an MTA documentary discussing why every community needs one leader and focuses on how the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community works under one leader – Hazrat Khalifatul Masihaa.
After the formal programme, traditional lunch was served to the guests.
Some guests shared their comments and personal experiences and thanked the Jamaat for their hospitality and friendship. Then, a question and answer session was held and guests asked various questions about fasting during Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, the philosophy of Islamic festivals, ways of celebrating Islamic festivals, Islamic purdah, polygamy, interfaith harmony, and brotherhood. The question-and-answer session continued for about an hour.
