On 14 October 2021, Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Niger had the opportunity to lay the foundation stone of the first Ahmadi mosque in the city of Maradi.
Maradi is the second largest city of Niger and the administrative centre of Maradi Region. Maradi is the major transport trade and agricultural hub of Niger’s south-central Hausa region. It lies on the major east–west paved highway which crosses from Niamey in the west to Diffa in the east.
The ceremony began in the afternoon and was presided over by Amir Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Niger, Asad Majeeb Sahib.
The new convert Ahmadis were specially invited to this event. Four new Ahmadi Muslims from Tchadoua city had the opportunity to lay bricks, followed by Tagaza Jamaat’s president and some missionaries.
At the end, Amir Sahib Jamaat Niger laid a brick and addressed the attendees. The ceremony concluded with a silent prayer.
