Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Nigeria was able to lay the foundation stone of a new Ahmadiyya Clinic on 25 July 2021. The ceremony took place on Zaria Road, Kano, where a clinic and an Ahmadiyya mosque will be built, insha-Allah.
This clinic will be the second medical centre of the Jamaat in Kano. The Ahmadiyya Hospital in Kano city has been serving humanity for more than 59 years.
On the occasion of this ceremony, a great example of the acceptance of prayer of Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa was also witnessed. There were heavy rains throughout the week followed by mudslides which could have disrupted the programme. According to the Meteorological Department, bad weather was forecasted for the next two days as well. But by the grace of Allah the Almighty and Huzoor’s prayers, it did not rain miraculously and the sky remained clear till the end of the programme.
Amir Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Nigeria, Alhaj Abdul Aziz Sahib, and acting Missionary-in-charge, Abdul Wasi Abid Sahib also attended this programme.
The special guest was His Royal Highness, Emir of Kano. Other dignitaries included the Health Commissioner, Permanent Secretary Health, Assistant Controller Immigration and officers from various departments.
The programme started with a recitation from the Holy Quran, after which Amir Sahib Nigeria delivered the inaugural address. The honourable emir of Kano then delivered a speech in which he praised the services of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya.
Later, other guests also expressed their good wishes for the Jamaat in their short speeches.
The Emir of Kano then laid the foundation stone of the hospital. On this occasion, Dr Mudassar Ahmed Sahib, Medical Director of the Ahmadiyya Hospital, gave a short briefing on this project to the guests.
At the end, Amir Sahib Nigeria led the silent prayer, and refreshments were served to the guests.
