Ahmadiyya Khalifa presented the sentiments of a new convert lady from Africa who said that after listening to His Holiness’ addresses, it is clear that we must not become Ahmadi only to convert others to Ahmadiyya Community, rather we must reform ourselves so that people in society may see the true image of Islam through our conduct, and we must focusing on aligning our words and actions.
