Under the guidance of Hazrat Amirul Momineen, may Allah be his Helper, Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya is growing rapidly in the continent of Africa and the prophecy of the Promised Messiahas, “I shall cause thy message to reach the corners of the earth” is, once again, being manifested in
this part of the world.
By the sheer blessings of Allah the Almighty, Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Niger had the opportunity to convey the message of the Promised Messiahas in this country and to launch a campaign of “Imam Mahdias has arrived” in major cities of Niger.
Prior to the campaign, a meeting of missionaries was initially held by Amir Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Niger, Asad Majeeb Sahib and a formal programme was formulated.
In the first phase, permission was sought from the mayors of all the proposed cities to designate these tablighi book stalls.
Photo banners featuring the Promised Messiahas were printed and the words “Imam Mahdias has arrived” were inscribed in national and local languages. It was decided to hold book stalls at least once a week.
The campaign began in the month of July 2020 and is still ongoing. Tabligh book stalls were held in the major cities of Niger like the capital Niamey, Dosso, Gaya, Doutchi, Konni, Madaoua, Bouza, Guidan Roumdji, Maradi, Zinder and Tahoua. Each venue of a tablighi book stall was decorated with the banner featuring the photo of Promised Messiahas.
Because of these banners, thousands of people got to see the picture of the Promised Messiahas. Healthy discussions were held with guests, who also had an opportunity to ask questions. The event was actively promoted on social media.
In some cities, this campaign was welcomed, while in a few cities, it was seen with mixed gestures of amazement and delight. It was opposed in some cities as well, but overall, this campaign is running very successfully and people are showing interest. New contacts are being made in every city.
In general, it was felt that this new campaign is getting an impressive response. Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Niger aims to continue this campaign and gradually expand it to other cities as well, insha-Allah
