West Coast’s longest-running Muslim convention begins Friday

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA will be hosting its 35th West Coast Jalsa Salana (Annual Convention) this weekend aimed at bringing together Americans through dialogue and prayers. In what is the largest annual inter-faith gathering in San Bernardino County, the weekend-long event will feature a special session for guests on Friday afternoon entitled, “A Universal Message of Peace & Security,” that will bring together congressional representatives, police chiefs, councilmembers, mayors, law enforcement, community leaders, and faith leaders across Southern California, as well as Muslims from around the country.

“Our Jalsa Salana is an annual tradition in Southern California during the holiday season to celebrate our common purpose of promoting peace on earth,” said National Spokesperson for Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, Amjad Mahmood Khan. “By facilitating robust and meaningful conversations each year, the West Coast Jalsa Salana unites individuals from a diverse range of religious, ethnic and political backgrounds across Southern California for a singular purpose: to let the forces of love overwhelm the forces of hate.”

About the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community:

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is a dynamic, reformist and fast-growing international movement within Islam. Founded in 1889, the Community spans 213 countries with tens of millions of members. Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, established in 1920, is among the first American-Muslim organizations.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the only Islamic organization to believe that the long- awaited messiah has come in the person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) of Qadian, India. Ahmad claimed to be the metaphorical second coming of Jesus of Nazareth and the divine guide, whose advent was foretold by the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad. The Community believes that God sent Ahmad, like Jesus, to end religious wars, condemn bloodshed and reinstitute morality, justice and peace. Ahmad’s advent has brought about an unprecedented era of Islamic revival and moderation. He divested Muslims of fanatical beliefs and practices by vigorously championing Islam’s true and essential teachings.
