Promised Messiah


Primary Purpose of this Convention

“The primary purpose of this Convention is to enable every sincere individual to personally experience religious benefits; that they may enhance their knowledge and, through the grace and ability bestowed upon them by Allah the Exalted, their understanding of Allah may progress. Among its secondary benefits is that meeting each other will promote familiarity among all brothers, and the fraternal ties within this Community will strengthen.”

(Majmu’ah Ishtiharat, vol. 1, p. 360, 2019 ed.)

“The desire and true purpose of the Jalsa was that the members of our Community, through repeated meetings [with me], should somehow achieve such a change in themselves that their hearts become fully inclined towards the hereafter, and the fear of God should develop within them; and that they should become for others an example of piety, righteousness, virtue, forbearance, tenderness of heart, mutual love, and brotherhood; and they should develop in themselves humility, hospitality, and integrity, and embrace with zeal the carrying out of religious campaigns.”

(Testimony of the Holy Qur’an, p. 149)

Not an Ordinary Convention

“Do not consider this convention to be like ordinary human assemblies. This is a matter that is purely founded upon Divine assistance and the support of Islam. God, the Exalted, has laid the foundation stone of this Movement with His own hands and, for this purpose, has prepared nations which will soon enter it.”

(Majmu’ah Ishtiharat, vol. 1, p. 361, 2019 ed.)

Prayers for Attendees of the Annual Convention

“I conclude with the prayer that everyone who travels to attend this Convention, which is for the sake of Allah, may Allah, the Exalted, be with him; reward him in abundant measure; have mercy on him; ease up for him his circumstances of hardship and anxiety; and eliminate his anguish and grief. May He grant him freedom from every hardship and lay open for him the ways of achieving his cherished goals, and raise him up, on the Day of Judgment, among those of His servants who are the recipients of His blessings and mercy. May He be their Guardian in their absence until after their journey comes to an end.
