Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Guinea-Bissau organised jalsas to commemorate Khilafat Day throughout the country.
One jalsa was also held in the capital city of Bissau on 27 May 2023, and various events were arranged on different days in almost every jamaat across the country. Each event commenced with a recitation from the Holy Quran with its translation, followed by Arabic qaseeda and Urdu poems. Subsequently, speeches were delivered on topics such as “Blessings of Khilafat”, “Khalifa is Divinely Appointed”, and “Prophecies Concerning the Establishment of Khilafat”.
In total, 71 jamaats across the country organised Khilafat Day jalsas, benefitting over 3869 participants.
Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Guinea-Bissau also held its 4th Majlis-e-Shura on 21 May 2023, with participation by elected representatives, missionaries, and teachers from various regions of the country.
The event commenced at 11am, presided over by missionary-in-charge Muhammad Ahsan Memon Sahib. Following the recitation from the Holy Quran, Muhammad Ahsan Sahib delivered the opening address, emphasising the significance of the shura and the responsibilities entrusted to its representatives.
This was followed by the formal proceedings of the shura, and the event concluded with silent prayer.
