Thousands of Ahmadis from Pakistan are making their way to India to take part in the 120th annual convention of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Qadian (Punjab, India). The three day convention which will take place from 26th to 28th December 2011 will be attended by tens of thousands of Ahmadi delegates from India as well as from neighbouring countries like Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal.

To make the journey easy for the delegates a major transport operation is underway. Over the course of next few days the delegates will be taken to Wagah Border via coaches and buses from where they will cross into India by foot, on the Indian side a similar operation is underway where the delegates will be met by their Indian counterparts who will in turn escort them to the convention site.

The annual convention which takes place each year in Qadian, India has always attracted a large number of attendees from Pakistan after Ahmadis in Pakistan were banned from holding their annual convention in 1984.

The fifth supreme head of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad will make a televised address on the last day of the convention.

    Thanks to Ehsan for such an informative article. Timely written. Rightly published. Thanks to lanakweb.com. May God reward you – lankaweb.com. Qadian is the birth-place of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam ahmad – Founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Islam. We wish the convention every success. Qadian – Darul Aman – a place of peace and tranquility.

    Holy Prophet of Islam (PBUH) said: “Imam Mahdi will appear in East of Damascus. Accordingly, Qadian is exactly east of Damascus. This is one of the prophecies fulfilled as a truth of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian being the Promised Messiah and Imam – Al – Mahdi. May Allah, the Guide open the eyes of pious people towards truth. This is my prayer until my last breathe. May Allah make it so. Ameen.

    @Ibnu Ahmad.

    The Hadith you referred to be is as follows:-
    ‘The Mahdi will descend near a white minaret in the east of Damascus’. (Muslim)

    Qadian is to the east of Damascus and nearly on the same latitude. The building of a Mosque in Qadian, which included a white minaret, was started by Mirza Ghulam Murtaza who was Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s father and this was later finished in Hazrat Ahmad’s time.

    There is also another sayings in this regard is: ‘The Messiah will be raised in the East’. (Ibn Majah)

    Where is comments from main stream Muslims? CIS Colombo – they do not read this truth? Muslim brothers, you still waiting for Imam Mahdi’s advent and waste your time? time is running out – hurry and accept Imam Mahdi (a.s.) whose advent in accordance with sayings of Holy Prophet (PBUH). If a person dies without knowing Imam of the age, his death will be a Jahiliyyah. Imam Mahdi’s Jama’at flourishing day by day thrughout the world. You just watch MTA -Muslim Television International (ASIASAT 2 – 105 EAST) and see what is going on in Qadian at Convention.
