Jalsa Salana

What is Jalsa Salana?

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, under the leadership of its holy founder, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad(as), held its first convention on December 27, 1891 in Qadian, India. Approximately 75 people attended the event. For over a century since then, the Community has held its Annual Convention, or Jalsa Salana, in numerous countries around the world. Tens of thousands of Community members gather at these conventions at various times throughout the year. The principle aims of the Annual Convention are to facilitate greater spiritual awareness among Community members, strengthen ties, and promote peace.
