Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Canada commemorated Musleh-e-Maud Day by organising Jalsas across Canada.
In the prophecy of Musleh-e-Maud, Allah the Almighty promised to the Promised Messiah, peace be upon him, that he will give him a son, who would possess extraordinary qualities, would have a long life and would be The Musleh-e-Maud (The Promised Reformer).
This prophecy was published on 20 February 1886 and was actually to prove the truthfulness of Islam over all other religions and faiths. The prophecy was fulfilled in the person of his son, Hazrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmadra and he served Islam for 52 years as the second successor of the Promised Messiahas.
As Khalifatul Masih, he made all out efforts to glorify Islam by organising detailed Jamaat structures, internationally propagating the message of Islam Ahmadiyyat, writing of commentaries of Holy Quran, writing scores of books, and Muslims in general, not only the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya.
The national coordinator of the Tarbiyyat Department Canada, Abdul Hafeez Sahib reported that on 20 February 2020, Jamaat members across Canada assembled in their Mosques and namaz centres and thanked Allah for the fulfillment of this prophecy.
Many among the gathered had met Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra in person, seen him, and listened to his live addresses. These Jalsas were held in all the 11 regions and 30 Jamaats with a total attendance of close to 8,500 men and women.
Major Jalsas were held in the regions of Peace Village, Vaughan, Brampton, and Calgary with an average attendance of around 1,000.

The programme started after Maghrib and Isha prayers with recitation of the Holy Quran, followed by French, English and Urdu translations. A poem from Durr-e-Sameen was recited followed by French and English translations.
The prophecy wordings were also read out in Urdu, again followed by French and English translations. The first session was in French and Dabeer Mahmood Sahib was the first speaker who spoke on the topic of Hazrat Musleh-e-Maud’sra “Khilafat and great achievements”.
