Our Motto : 'In-Allah-ha-Ma'anaa' ("Be not grieved, for surely Allah is with us." - The Holy Quran 9:40). We find spiritual strength, courage and comfort, in the times of trials and  hardships, from this Divine Quranic revelation that descended upon the pure heart of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him), so as to console and compose him during one of the most perilous moments of his life. <Please click the 'Our Motto' link on our homepage for more details>

Hazrat Ameer Prof. Dr. Abdul Karim Saeed Pasha Sahib's Invitation to the Jamaat to Attend the Salaanah Duayyia 2003 [Annual Prayer Gathering] (16th November 2003):

Printer-friendly Page

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds,
The Beneficent, the Merciful,
Master of the day of Requital.
Thee do we serve and Thee do we beseech for help.
Guide us on the right path,
The path of those upon whom Thou hast bestowed favours,
Not those upon whom wrath is brought down,
nor those who go astray. (The Holy Quran 1:1-7)


My dear brothers and sisters of the Jama‘at [Movement],

Assalaam-o-Alaikum Wa Rakhmatullahi Wa Barakaato Hoo.

The month of December is drawing near and as you all know, the Salaanah Duaiyya (Annual Gathering for Prayers) of the Jama‘at [Movement] is held in the last week of this month at Darus Salaam, Lahore, Pakistan. The dates for this year are 24th to 28th December, with 24th December reserved exclusively for ladies. (This year special arrangements will be made to enable gentlemen members to benefit from the proceedings of the ladies’ session also).

Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Sahib started the tradition of the Annual Gathering (originally known as the Jalsa Salaanah) in 1891. He explained the purpose of this gathering and stressed the importance of its continuance in an announcement on 30th December 1891. He said:

"... All friends should try their utmost to come on this date to listen to divine discourses and to participate in supplications. This convention will focus on disseminating truths and knowledge that are essential for the advancement of faith, conviction and wisdom. In addition, special supplications will be made for these friends and particular attention paid to them in prayers. And the utmost effort will be made in the revered presence of the Beneficent and Merciful that God, the Most High, may draw them in His direction, accept them for Himself and bring about a pious change in their life.

"A short-term benefit of these gatherings will be that by coming on the appointed dates, all the new brothers who have joined the Jama’at in the preceding year will meet and recognise their older brothers and in this way the feelings of kinship and familiarity will continue to develop. Prayer will be offered in this gathering for the salvation of any brother who has departed this temporary abode during the year. Efforts will be made before the Most Honourable, all Glory is His, to unify all the brothers spiritually and to remove their aloofness, alienation and differences. There will also be many other spiritual benefits and profits of these gatherings that shall, God willing, become manifest from time to time.

"It will be prudent for friends with limited means to plan ahead for participating in this gathering. With foresight and careful control of expenditures, they should put aside small sums every day or every month to bear the expenses of the journey and when the time comes, the capital for the sojourn will be available to them and it will be as if the journey was free ...."

Dear brothers and sisters,

The Salaanah Duaiyya is, therefore, no ordinary social gathering. It is a special coming together of Ahmadis for their spiritual advancement, prayers and supplications to Allah and a rejuvenation of their dedication and efforts to carry the message of Islam to the whole world.

I sincerely and cordially invite you all to join us in this spiritual gathering of the Jama‘at. Each one of you is special for us as you are our brothers and sisters and we shall be looking forward to having you amongst us this year and in the years to come, Insha Allah. Please start preparations for your journey right away so that you have sufficient time for obtaining visas and making travel arrangements. Inform us of your programme as soon as possible. The Central Anjuman will make all arrangements at this end to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Continue praying for the solidarity and progress of the Jama‘at.

Seeker of your prayers,



Prof. Dr. Abdul Karim Saeed
Ameer-i-Jama‘at [Head of the Movement]
