On 7 April 2023, Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Niger organised a successful tabligh sitting in the capital city of Niamey. Prior to the event, bookstalls were set up in several locations, generating interest.
We strategically selected popular locations throughout Niamey to set up bookstalls. Banners featuring the photograph of the Promised Messiahas were prominently displayed alongside the bookstalls. These banners featured the Promised Messiah’sas photograph as well as the words “Imam Mahdi has arrived” in national and local languages.
People asked a variety of questions about the Promised Messiahas and Islam Ahmadiyyat and gradually we built an audience who were curious and eager to know about Ahmadiyyat. Hence, contact details were shared with them for further discussion. After many healthy discussions, it was decided that now is the time to gather all those contacts and organise a collective tabligh event.
Hence, 7 April was chosen for this event and 32 non-Ahmadi guests attended it. Amir Sahib Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Niger explained to them about Islam Ahmadiyyat and the advent of the Promised Messiahas as well as the fundamental beliefs. After the event, we had the collective Iftar with the guests.
The event received an impressive response and was seen with amazement and delight. Many attendees expressed they learned a lot about the teachings of Islam. Alhamdulillah.
