The day had finally arrived, the special day that was anxiously waited for by members of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya, Nairobi. It had been announced two weeks earlier through social media and in the mosque.
It was the Musleh-e-Maud Day Jalsa, which commemorates the glorious prophecy revealed to the Promised Messiahas, who had been in seclusion for 40 days devoting himself entirely in solitude to divine worship and supplication, after which he announced that he had been honoured with a revelation containing the prophecy of the birth of an extraordinarily pious and righteous son; the son was named as the Promised Reformer.
Hazrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmadra was that Promised Son of the Promised Messiahas.
During his speech, Tahir Ahmad Sahib read out an excerpt from a book of Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra, titled Remembrance of Allah.
Amir Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Kenya reminded members to attach themselves regularly with the Jamaat’s website, www.alislam.org, where there is a lot of literature concerning Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra and other Jamaat literature.
He urged all to watch MTA programmes regularly and listen to weekly Friday Sermons of Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa. In this way, our faith and knowledge will increase manifold. He urged members to remember our beloved Khalifa in their prayers and Jamaat members in general.
Even though it was a virtual Jalsa, the feeling of togetherness was felt among the members present.
May Allah the Almighty bring ease to everyone and may He end this pandemic so that we can physically gather for Jamaat events and jalsas. Amin.
