Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Addresses Concluding Session of Ahmadiyya Muslim Medical Association Meeting
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad says the Association should seek to selflessly serve humanity
The World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad delivered the keynote address at the Annual Meeting of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Medical Association UK on Sunday 21 January 2018. The event took place at the Baitul Futuh Mosque in south-west London.
During his address His Holiness spoke of the rising need of doctors to serve in the numerous hospitals and clinics established by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community around the world.
His Holiness said there are a number of hospitals already established in Pakistan, India and in African countries and many more facilities are being built. His Holiness gave the example of hospitals under construction in Guatemala, Ivory Coast and an eye clinic in Burkina Faso and said that there is a rising need for doctors and specialists in various fields to come forward and offer their services to serve humanity.
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“You should not just make plans to build a hospital and hold an opening ceremony, rather you must make sure that you have qualified doctors and staff in place so that the hospital is able to fulfil its mandate and progress. You should both make a short term and a long term plan to assist the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community’s hospitals around the world so that they can grow and increase their capacities to serve humanity.”
His Holiness said that in the short term, the doctors should present themselves to serve in the hospitals not just for a few weeks, rather they should aim to do so for up to three years.
Speaking of the long term vision, His Holiness said that the Ahmadiyya Medical Association should train and guide Waqfe Nau boys and girls – who are young members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community who have dedicated their lives for the service of God and mankind – so they can help in the various hospitals of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.
Noting the expectations of the founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him), Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“The Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) taught that service to humanity was a fundamental purpose of his advent and his expectations were extremely high. Therefore I hope and expect that you will seriously reflect upon this point and seek to produce ever better results and to selflessly serve humanity to the best of your abilities. This is your mission, this is your purpose, this is your objective.”
Concluding his address, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad prayed:
“May Allah the Almighty grant the Ahmadiyya Muslim Medical Association UK the ability to fulfil the expectations of the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) and of the Caliphate of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in the very best way. May Allah help you in all of your noble endeavours. Ameen.”
