As the Khalifat al-Masih is now residing in London, the UK Annual Conference has turned into a foremost attraction for members of the Movement. In July 1989 almost fourteen thousand people took part in the Conference, while in 1998 seventeen thousand faithful rolled in from fifty-nine countries.
In July 2000 over twenty-one thousand members from seventy-six countries attended the Jalsa Salana. Huzoor’s inspirational addresses were translated simultaneously into seven languages. Two African kings, two British members of Parliament, and one Norwegian member of Parliament also attended. The Kings were honored with pieces of blessed garments of the Promised Messiah(as).
In 1994 the proceedings of the Annual Conference were televised in 120 countries. Hudhoor’s sermons were translated into seven languages, while the speeches delivered by other distinguished scholars were translated into 15 languages. In 1994 twenty seven thousand Europeans joined the Jamaat, while 418,200 people from around the world joined the fold of Ahmadiyyat. These converts belonged to 155 nations of 93 countries.
The Annual Conference in Germany is also attended by thousands of people. In 1993 more than thirteen thousand people joined the Movement on the occasion of the Jalsa Salana. It is worthy of note that new Jamaats have been established in 752 places in various German cities. Thirty three thousand members attended the Annual Conference held in August 2000 in Manheim, Frankfurt. The Community is actively pursuing the project of building one hundred mosques in that country.
