Intro
The Muslim population of Guatemala is approximately 1,200 (0.008% of the total population), of which 95% are Palestinian immigrants. There is a mosque near the emblematic Reforma avenue, called the Islamic Da’wah Mosque of Guatemala (Spanish: Mezquita de Aldawaa Islámica) which is available for the five daily prayers and offers classes in Islamic studies. The president of the Islamic Community of the country is Fahed Himeda el-Sagini. In 1989, the Qadiani’s began to build their place of worship, which seems to have been completed by 1991. It was rumored that a rich Ahmadi from the Los Angeles area paid for this place of worship to be built. Per Ahmadiyya sources, the first ever Jalsa Salana was held in 1989.
