World Muslim Leader Opens Annual Convention in Germany

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad opens Annual Convention with Friday Sermon

The World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat and Fifth Khalifa, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad opened the three-day Jalsa Salana Germany with a faith inspiring Friday Sermon on 28 June 2013 in the city of Karlsruhe. During his address, His Holiness spoke about the true purpose and objectives of the Annual Convention.

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad also informed that in both the United States and in Kababir the Annual Conventions of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community were also taking place this weekend.

During his Friday Sermon, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad emphasised that the real purpose of the Annual Convention is self-improvement and the development of a spirit of righteousness amongst all participants.

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“Good deeds should be performed selflessly. To do a favour to someone in return for a favour and in the hope of gaining benefits is not the right way. Our only motivation should be to gain the pleasure of God the Almighty.”

The Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community further emphasised the need to fulfil both the rights of God and of mankind.

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“We cannot bring the people of the world closer to God until we ourselves have established a strong bond with Him. And we cannot fulfil the rights of mankind until we develop within ourselves a spirit of truthfulness, love, brotherhood and selflessness.”

The Jalsa Salana continued on Saturday morning with an address by Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad to Lajna Imaillah (Ladies Auxiliary Organisation) in which he counselled them on the importance of modesty in all respects and the importance of the moral training of all Ahmadi children.

Later on Saturday Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad will address non-Ahmadi guests in English about the true teachings of Islam. On Sunday afternoon, His Holiness will deliver the concluding address of the Jalsa Salana.
