His Excellency President Dr. Julius Maada Bio has said he wished Sierra Leone and its people were as united and peaceful as the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at in Sierra Leone.

The President was speaking at the 59th Annual Jalsa Salana Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Conference in Bo city with the theme: ‘Love for all, hatred for none’.

The event saw President Bio, as Chief Guest, delivering a keynote address that urged Sierra Leoneans to embrace these values for a brighter future.

President Bio said: “I admire the love, unity, tolerance and peaceful coordination between members of the Ahmadiyya sect in Sierra Leone and I wish Sierra Leone was as peaceful and united as the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at.

“This important Muslim gathering has become a bastion for promoting spiritual growth, fostering community among members, and providing a platform for religious discourse. The Jalsa Salana is a time of unity, spiritual reflection, and renewal—a moment when we strengthen our faith and dedication to the teachings of the Ahmadiyya Mission.

“The sense of togetherness within our community and spiritual awakening experienced at this annual gathering are much needed in our nation today. The Jalsa Salana holds immense significance in fostering unity, understanding, and peace in our country.

“Our participation indicates our collective determination to seek spiritual and moral advancement, beneficial social interaction, and, most importantly, increase our personal relationship with God”.

Special Guest from Markaz, Maulana Azhar Haneef, while relaying the message from His Holiness the Khalifa of Islam Ahmadiyya, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad (atba), said he was impressed with the way the mission was holding their annual Jalsa Salana.

He prayed that Allah would bless the annual gathering of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community with great success, supplicating for all those participating to gain immense spiritual blessings.

Maulana Azhar Haneef said, “Certainly, the Jalsa of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, which are now held in every corner of the globe, where Ahmadi Muslims, filled with pious and noble sentiments, gather in their thousands and proclaim the name of the Promised Messiah with respect and honour, and all manifestations of the grand fulfilment of this divine promise.

“The promised Messiah has started; do not consider this gathering to be the same as any ordinary worldly gathering. Rather, the case of this is such that it is founded upon the pure support of truth and the propagation of Islam. The foundation stone of this community has been laid by Allah, the Almighty Himself, and the nations that will soon come and join its fold have been prepared. This is because it is the work of that all-powerful being, for whom nothing is impossible.”

The Amir of Ahmadiyya Mission in Sierra Leone, Amir Musa Mewa thanked President Bio, the First Lady Madam Fatima Maada Bio, guests, and well-wishers who left their busy schedules to attend the 59th Jalsa Salana.

He urged Muslims to be kind, tolerant, peaceful, and to refrain from retaliation, noting that whoever attributed those qualities had done so in fulfillment of the rights of Allah to mankind. He stressed that the advent of the Founder of Ahmadiyya was to bring mankind closer to God, thereby reminding them of their responsibilities to Allah.
