Mr Bangura the local chairman  welcomed the guests and said that we have 2 great personalities,  who served in Sierra Leone, Imam Shamshad A. Nasir served as a missionary from 1982 – 1986 and Muhammad Ashraf served as a teacher in Ahmadiyya Muslim School.  They introduced Ahmadiyya Muslim Community as a great community in Sierra Leon. This community is always working to assist humanity by opening schools, hospitals, water wells and many more said the chairman.

After the recitation of the holy Quran by a Muslim and prayer from the Bible, the moderator of the event invited    Imam Shamshad A. Nasir, Regional Missionary of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of the region,for to addressed them. Imam shamshad first of all thanked Almighty God for this opportunity and  congratulated the audience on the independence day of Sierra Leone. Imam said:

1.   Sierra Leone is a great Country we enjoyed our stay there.  All those  people who came from Sierra Leone here in USA,  consider themselves very fortunate, now it is also very important  for you to assist and help to your relatives and poor people back home in Sierra leone, and try your best to help and show love with your homeland . There can be many ways to assist however one way is to save $1 per day per family and by the end of the month share $30 with your countrymen and that amount would really help people back home. As God gave you a comfortable life here it is important to thank God by taking care of your loved ones, poor people. This is one of the teaching of the Islam to help the humanity.
2.      Keep your traditions alive. Respect of elders is one of your tradition which is fading away in this society. Ensure to live this tradition and instill it in your children. Similarly hospitality is another great tradition. It would be great to practice this tradition, instill it in your children and spread it to your neighborhood and show this tradition to American people.

Imam Shamshad A. Nasir also said that Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission has established many hospitals, schools, Mosques and Mission Houses in Sierra Leone for the welfare and physical, moral and spiritual well being of the citizens of Sierra Leoneon people, in USA we can help you  that you   come to our mosque and get free education via Sunday school.

The audience really appreciated and the message was well received, many people approached Imam after his presentation and introduced to him, that they were the students in Ahmadiyya Schools and graduated from Ahmadiyya Schools in Sierra Leone and the community is well-known in the country.

The program was well-attended over 150 people participated and really appreciated the program.
