EMOTIONS RUN HIGH IN PEACE VILLAGE, CANADA


The emotional fervor touches the sky with the arrival of Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih V (May Allah strengthen his hands) in Canada.


 
 
The long thirst was quenched and the deep void was filled with joy, excitement and rejuvenation when Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih V (May Allah strengthen his hands) put his steps on the land of Canada on Monday, June 21st. A motorcade escorted him from the Toronto Pearson Airport to the Peace Village, which is located North of the Baitul Islam Mosque, in the city of Vaughan. The motorcade stopped at Ahmadiyya Avenue, the small street that divides the Mosque and the Village.

As soon as Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih V (May Allah strengthen his hands) emerged from his car, thousands and thousands of members of the Jamaat, who had been waiting patiently for more than three hours, filled the already excited atmosphere with uplifting Jama’at slogans.

After showered with flowers from children, Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih V (May Allah strengthen his hands) slowly moved through the long rows of welcoming members standing on both sides of the Ahmadiyya Avenue.

Along the entire route were thousands of people, young and old, who were eager to catch a glimpse of the Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih V (May Allah strengthen his hands). It was almost as if emotions had poured out on the street. Everyone was ecstatic.

As soon as Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih V (May Allah strengthen his hands) entered into the Mosque gate, Lajna, standing behind the string fence of fluttering paper flags, greeted Huzur and Begum sahiba with loud slogans. Inspiring poems sung by Nasirat and Lajna added to the fervor of this momentous occasion.

The incredible spirit of Jama’at combined with the ecstasy of witnessing a historical moment, created an atmosphere that was electric.

After passing Lajna, Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih V (May Allah strengthen his hands) inspected the guard of honour of York regional police in front of the Baitul Islam mosque and then walked up to the stage where the Mayor of Vaughan welcomed him.

In the background, the Ahmadiyya and Canadian flags fluttered in the light breeze that graced Baitul Islam, which was decorated with colorful banners.

After making a small speech, the Mayor of Vaughan presented Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih V (May Allah strengthen his hands) with the key of the city and declared Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih V (May Allah strengthen his hands) the Honourary citizen of Vaughan.

Finally, Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih V (May Allah strengthen his hands) led Zuh’r and Asa’r prayers. The historical visit of the Khalifatul Masih V had started.
