My Dear Members of PAAMA!
Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah.
May the Lord of mankind open unto you the gates of His mercy and may He so ordain that you are always accompanied by the supplication of His angels. Ameen.
Over the past few years, as many countries across Africa celebrated the 50th anniversaries of their independence, PAAMA held a series of ‘Africa at 50’ events to commemorate, in its own unique way, the milestone reached by African states. The distinction of these events was that they were graced by the august presence of the Worldwide Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, His Holiness, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, who delivered the keynote addresses.
Originally addressed to the attendees of the ‘Africa at 50’ events which included High Commissioners, Ambassadors and other representatives of African High Commissions and Embassies in the UK, these speeches, with their universal import, are equally pertinent to all the countries and peoples of Africa. I am, therefore, pleased to inform you all that we have now published a compilation of these speeches delivered by His Holiness so that the wisdom and guidance contained therein may be disseminated far and wide.
Printed copies are available from our PAAMA Office at Baitul Futuh Mosque. Alternatively, this can also be downloaded from our website at:
It is our hope and prayer that this publication will be widely read and reflected upon so that the illusive dream of a united, prosperous, and enlightened Africa can be transformed from a hollow yearning to a glowing reality and, in the words of His Holiness, Africa does emerge as a true global power. May Allah so ordain. Ameen.
