Jalsa Salana Germany 2014 concludes
More than 33,000 people attend 3-day convention in Karlsruhe
The World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa, His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad concluded the 39thAnnual Convention (Jalsa Salana) of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Germany on 15 June 2014 with a spiritually charged address about the importance of building a personal bond and connection with God Almighty.
During his address, His Holiness said that whilst some people believe that God has become silent, the truth is that God’s Attributes continue to be manifest today as they ever were. He said that God listens as He has always listened and speaks as He has always spoken.
During his address, His Holiness outlined the methods by which one can obtain the love of Allah. Quoting extensively from the writings of the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said that if a person desires a relationship with Allah the Almighty then he or she must first seek to free themselves of sin and should remember God in the same way that one remembers their own father.
His Holiness highlighted the importance of prayer before speaking of the numerous heavenly signs that are found in favour of the Promised Messiah. He described spiritual signs and dreams through which people around the world in the present era were joining the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.
Concluding, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“I pray that we may be those who come to bear true understanding of their faith; who become close to God and gain His love. May we be truly the inheritors of the vast treasures that the Promised Messiah has left for us.”
The event concluded with a silent prayer.
Earlier in the day, over 33,000 Ahmadis attending the event in Karlsruhe took part in an emotional pledge of allegiance (Bai’at) at the hand of the Khalifa, whilst Ahmadi Muslims around the world also took part whilst viewing the proceedings live on MTA International.
