The ROR of Jan-1938 reports that the 1937 Jalsa at Qadian was held and 30,000 people attended. Other Ahmadiyya sources claims that around 28,000 people attended this Jalsa. During the course of the Jalsa, Chaudhry Sir Zafarulla Khan spoke of his suggestion (to gift the Khalifa with 300,000 rupees), at the 1939 Jalsa Salana at Qadian. The suggestion was later finalized, written and approved by the 2nd Khalifa. The 2nd Khalifa delivered a speech entitled “The true revolution”, in which he took an oath from Ahmadi men that they would give women a share of their inheritance. The Jalsa was held in the complex of the Talim ul Islam High School, loud speakers were also used.

Maulvi Abdur Rahim Nayyar gave a speech on “The History and Progress of the Ahmadiyya Movement”. Professor Qazi Muhammad Aslam also gave a speech. Zafarulla Khan gave speech to the youth.

The 2nd Khalifa gave another speech on the 2nd day and told the community about the new missions of Ahmadiyya in Poland, Yugoslavia (could be modern day Serbia) and South America (most likely Argentina). The 2nd Khalifa also mulled over the big political decision, should his jamaat join the Muslim League or the Congress? The Congress wouldn’t give full freedom of tabligh, and thus, the Khalifa was leaning towards the Muslim League.

Other speakers were, Maulana Ghulam Rasool Rajeki, Maulana Abul Ata, Sheikh Muhammad Yusuf, Dr. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, Malik Abdur Rahman Khadim.

A separate area was made for the ladies to have their Jalsa, the 2nd Khalifa gave them special time also.


Our periodicals serve as a means to foster a strong connection with the Jamaat: Hazrat Musleh-e-Maud’s advice for the Community

On 27 December 1937, during his address at the Jalsa Salana Qadian, Huzoorra said:

“I wish to call the attention of members of the Jamaat towards the fact that it is essential for a community’s prosperity that its organs remain attached to the [main] body. […] Therefore, from the perspective of a community, until its members are connected to the roots, their progress and [spiritual] life are impossible.

“And in this age, [Jamaat’s] newspapers are the best means to foster such a connection. If one continues to receive the Jamaat’s newspapers, no matter where they are, it is as if they are present very close [to the centre]. […] The Promised Messiahas would always say that Al Hakam and Badr were his two arms.” (Anwar-ul-Ulum, Vol. 14, pp. 543-544)

Huzoorra continued by advising the Jamaat to pay special attention towards the newspapers and magazines of the community. Since this was the age of publications – in accordance with the Quranic prophecy – it was the duty of members of the Jamaat to strengthen the Jamaat’s publications:

“Therefore, I call the attention of members of the Jamaat to subscribe to the newspapers – though I have drawn the attention in the past on many occasions, it seems as if the members assume that I am urging them to support the newspaper itself, however, I do not urge them for the newspaper’s benefit, but rather, for the benefit of their and their progeny’s faith […]. Moreover, those who cannot read, should subscribe to the newspaper and give it to their non-Ahmadi neighbours and friends, so that they could read and come closer to the Jamaat. […]

“Whenever an opponent [of the Jamaat] targets some individuals, they do so when they think they could easily persuade them due to their having little acquaintance with the Jamaat’s teachings. However, if the members are strongly connected with the Jamaat and have full knowledge about the beliefs and teachings of the Jamaat, then the opponent can never dare to target them. Thus, subscription to the Jamaat’s newspapers is essential to foster a [strong] connection with the Jamaat.” (Ibid, p. 550).
