The first mission house of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat in Argentina has been established. It is located in the capital Buenos Aires.
The establishment of the mission house itself manifests a further glimpse of the fulfilment of the revelation, “I shall cause thy message to reach the corners of the earth.”
Just before leaving for Argentina and starting the mission work here, I had the honour of meeting Hazrat Khalifatul Masihaa. Before my mulaqat, I was really anxious as I had in mind the many possible challenges and difficulties in starting mission work in a country from scratch. But the blessed words and motivating comments of Huzooraa quickly relieved all my worries. Huzooraa said during the mulaqat that if you want to teach someone swimming you simply throw them into the deep end. “So,” Huzoor said, “I have done the same with you, but Insha-Allah you will yourself learn to swim.”
Certainly, it is a result of the acceptance of Huzoor’s prayers that within one year we have been able to establish the first mission house.
We started the negotiation of this place with the landlady in March 2018, but she soon changed her mind. For two months, we continued to look for an appropriate place, but to no avail. It was the beginning of Ramadan when all of a sudden, she called us herself, saying that due to her poor health she wanted to rent this place as soon as possible and we would be her first choice. Although we couldn’t fulfil all the official requirements to rent a public place, when she found out about our work and purpose of our mission, astonishingly she agreed to rent us the place without attaining all the official requirements.
Now, beside the daily use for prayers, every Sunday we have an open day in our mission house and our doors are open for everyone to find out more about the true teachings of Islam and the advent of the Promised Messiahas.
