Prior to the commencement of Jalsa Salana UK 2021, the preparations for the Jalsa were in full swing in Niger too. All missionaries were instructed to celebrate the Jalsa in the form of a mini-Jalsa here in Niger and to ensure that the Jalsa is attended virtually by as many members as possible.
The three-day programme of Jalsa Salana UK 2021 was posted in the mosques and mission houses so that members could come in time to listen to the proceedings.
The proceedings of the Jalsa were listened to in 23 locations, including Madaoua Mosque, mualim house Madaoua, central mission house Madaoua, Kornaka, Dakoro, Sabon Machi, Tahoua, Yaya, Birni-N’Konni Mosque, Koni mission house, mualim house Koni, Radadaoua, Zinder, Mirya, Tessaoua, Gaya, Maradi guest house, Maradi mission, Dosso, Niamey mission house, Niamey Mosque and Guidan Roumdji.
As the Jalsa continued, attention was drawn towards charity and donations were made. Moreover, goats were sacrificed at four different places to ensure the success of the Jalsa.
Members of the Jamaat offered Tahajud prayer, individual and congregational as well. After Tahajud prayer, the recent sermon of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa was summarised in a dars so that those who could not listen to it live, would not be deprived of this invaluable blessing.
By Allah’s grace, a total of 1,521 people had the opportunity to listen to Jalsa Salana UK 2021, including 375 non-Ahmadis.
In some remote places where due to power and other issues there was no arrangement for listening to the live Jalsa, recordings of the Jalsa proceedings were made available to the attendees.
During the Jalsa, 84 Khuddam performed waqar-e-amal, and worked diligently to clean the mosques, install electronics and provide food and refreshment for guests.
