The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Colombo, Sri Lanka observed Tabligh Day on 18 February 2018 at Baitul Hamd Colombo. Several members took part in the programme that commenced at 9am. They were sent in groups to various parts of the Colombo city. The message of Ahmadiyyat reached 1,300 people and a large quantity of leaflets were distributed.
The main event of the programme was a group visit, headed by Chief Missionary Maulvi Mushtaq Ahmad sahib that visited a place called Dehiyovita, sixty kilometers from Colombo. They visited a house where they met seven non-Ahmadis and by Allah’s Grace all of their questions related to Ahmadiyyat were replied in a befitting manner and were convincing for them.
