Ustaz Mubashir Adam Okwan, the Akim Oda Circuit Missionary has called on Muslims to strive to fight against the evil propensities within themselves to become better Muslims in their homes and the societies they live.
He was speaking during the Final Session of the 18th Annual Rally of Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya (Ahmadiyya Muslim Male Youth Organization) in the Eastern Region held on July 2, 2017 at Akyem Achiase.
Speaking on the theme “The True Meaning of Jihad”, he bemoaned how the word “Jihad” continues to be misunderstood because of the acts of extremist and so called Muslims who abuse the teachings of Islam. He therefore called on Muslims to stick to the true and peaceful teachings of Islam and live by them so that they can attract non-Muslims to Islam.
The chairman for the Final Session was the Sadr Mulk (National President), Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Ghana, Mr. Nasir Ahmed Bonsu. He was accompanied by Ustaz Aliu Adam (Naib Sadr, Greater Accra & Administration), Mr. Uthman Yaw Baidoo (Naib Sadr, Southern Sector) and 12 other National Aamila members of the Majlis.
As the chairman, Mr. Bonsu made several remarks. He explained the advent of the second coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ (on whom be peace) in the person of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian (on whom be peace), the founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and extended an invitation to non-Ahmadis and non-Muslims to Islam Ahmadiyyat, the true Islam. He advised participants to strive to be better Muslims through active participation in financial sacrifices, tabligh (preaching) and Majlis programmes.
Mr. Ahmed Jawaad Hammond, Muhtamim Atfal, Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Ghana also introduced the Majlis Ansar Sultanul Qalam (MASQ). He explained that it is a Writer’s Guild which seeks to propagate to the true teachings of Islam and respond to allegations against Islam through the pen. He therefore invited participants to join MASQ thereby participating in the Jihad with the Pen.
