Marwan Sarwar Gill, Missionary, Argentina
From 5 to 16 October 2023, a book fair was held in Cordóba, the second-largest city in Argentina. Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Argentina, like every year, was able to participate in this book fair.
Two local members from Argentina and one local member from Bolivia dedicated their time as volunteers to help during the book fair.
Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Argentina had the opportunity to present at our stand the translation of the Holy Quran in various languages and different Islamic literature in Spanish. During the book fair, hundreds of people were introduced to the true Islamic teachings and the advent of the Promised Messiahas. The most intriguing and appealing book on display was, for many visitors, the Holy Quran in large Arabic text, as it was their first time seeing the Quran in person. Some read the translation, and others could not help but be amazed by the calligraphy, while others wanted to hear the recitation of the Holy Quran in Arabic.
As part of the exhibition, our missionary from Bolivia, Attaul Manan Sahib, held a presentation on “Islam: A Religion of Peace”.
Overall, the exhibition was a great success. More than 1500 people visited the Jamaat stall, and over 100 people left their personal contact information so that they could be invited to future events and learn more about Islam Ahmadiyyat.
