  • At the foundation laying ceremony of Baitul Hameed the first councillor of city said that the Ahmadiyya Jama’at

    was a part of the city of Fulda.

    An 81 year old local guest said that he may not see in his lifetime the fulfilment of

    whatever Khalifatul Masih had said in his address, but the

    world will accept the message of the founder of Ahmadiyya Jama’at through him. The

    elderly guest said that in his heart he had found

    truthfulness of religion. He asked to be taught Salat so

    that he could pray.

  • The Jama’at has now acquired status in Germany by virtue of which it can have its own schools and get some help from the Government. However, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih made it clear

    that the Jama’at is self-funding, its members most keenly make sacrifices and build mosques and we do not need to ask

    for any help from the Government.

    A lady guest said that she was delighted

    that Hazrat Khalifatul Masih’s address was

    conciliatory as regards Christianity. She felt there were more commonalities

    and fewer differences between religions

    Another guest said that Hazrat Khalifatul

    Masih gives the important message

    that Islam is a religion of peace.

    A guest commented that people who had misconceptions about Islam usually did not

    even know any Muslims.

    experience to witness this bond up close.

  • A Christian professor of English from Macedonia, said that she understood the peaceful teachings of

    Islam after listening to the address of Hazrat

    Khalifatul Masih and felt Jalsa had brought a change

    in her.

    A doctor from Macedonia said that he was impressed to note the multi-national

    yet non-discriminatory atmosphere of Jalsa. He

    took Bai’at on the last day of Jalsa. He said that

    knowing that Jama’at has a Khalifa, made him accept Ahmadiyyat as the right

    way.

    A friend from Belgium said that he was moved by the

    mutual unity and brotherhood of Jama’at and

    their service to mankind.

    A Christian friend said that he was delighted to

    hear the address of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih because he briefly and

    most clearly explained the teaching of Islam.

    A friend from Niger said that prior to Jalsa he

    had not even thought of Bai’at but when he saw

    the love Ahmadis had for their Khalifatul Masih he decided to take Bai’at.

  • A German language teacher from Lithuania had the

    opportunity to personally ask Hazrat Khalifatul

    Masih why slogans were raised at the Jalsa instead

    of clapping.

    He said he was given a most elegant answer that

    while clapping certainly was an expression of joy, but

    slogans combine this element joy with the praise

    of God.

    A Christian priest who teaches philosophy at the

    University of Malta and has read a few books of the

    Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) said he had very positive impressions of the Jalsa. He said he believed

    that Ahmadiyya was a peaceful Jama’at.

    He purchased a ring with

    ‘Alaissallah’ inscription and asked what it meant. When it was explained to him, he said such a phrase should

    always be held close to one.
