As the Jalsa Salana unfolds, a treasured and much anticipated moment is when the beloved Caliph arrives at the Jalsa Gah. All eyes are fixed on the entrance, eagerly awaiting his arrival. The atmosphere is filled with reverence and love for their beloved Imam, and the Jalsa Gah is illuminated with a spiritual light. The chants of “Nara-e-Takbir”, Allahu Akbar” resound, symbolising the deep devotion and adoration for the Caliph.
One of the most blessed opportunities for Ahmadis at Jalsa Salana is the chance to pray Salat (congregational prayer) behind their beloved Caliph. The experience of offering Salat to Allah Almighty behind our beloved Imam is beyond words. It is a spiritual journey that uplifts the soul and brings a profound sense of connection and closeness to God.
In addition to the spiritual upliftment during Salat, the beloved Caliph’s words of wisdom and guidance are eagerly anticipated by attendees. His speeches and addresses encompass a wide range of topics, offering profound insights, inspiration, and guidance for individuals and the community as a whole. The wisdom shared by the beloved Caliph serves as a beacon of light, guiding Ahmadis on their spiritual journey and strengthening their faith.
