Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

All is set by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at of Nigeria (AMJN) to hold its National Exhibition 2022 at the University of Ibadan, Ibadan Nigeria.

The programme, slated for November 5, 2022, and themed:”Islam-ul-Ahmadiyya in Prints and Visuals”, is expected to parade a number of factual Islamic heritage items, published articles about Islam, Al-Quran translation in various languages, and some interesting images of Ahmadiyya footprints in Nigeria.

Amir (National Head), Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at of Nigeria, Alatoye Folorunsho Azeez, who disclosed this, in Lagos, said since its establishment in Nigeria in 1916 (106 years ago), Ahmadiyya Jama’at has spearheaded very important interventions, from pioneering education to giving health services to establishing the first Muslim newspaper in the whole of West Africa.

He said: “Items on display will include the Holy Qur’an in various languages of the world, the History of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at in Nigeria, the auxiliary organs of the Jama’at, the Jama’at Interventions in Education, Health and other Charitable Endeavours, the Muslim Television Ahmadiyya, Mosques and other publications by the Jama’at and the last addition; the Minaret International University.

The Jamaat is blessed with eminent personalities who have been part of the history of Ahmadiyya in Nigeria.”
Alatoye however, stated that Ahmadiyya was the first to publish the Holy Quran in Igbo Language in 1989.
He said: “Let me use this opportunity to clarify on the correct timing of the publication of Holy Quran in Igbo Language. As a matter of fact, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat of Nigeria first published the first copy of the Holy Quran 1989. The second publication through the efforts of Shaykh Chukwuemeka was launched on July 1, 2022 (which was mistakenly believed to be the first Koran Nso). Yoruba translation (Alukuraani Mímó was partly published in 1957 while the full text was published in 1976) and Igbo translation (Koran Nso, 1989). The Hausa translation (Al-Kurani Mai Tsarki) was completed and first published in 1992, coming after Shaykh Gumi’s translation, which was published in 1979 in Lebanon. Works on Etsako language (spoken in Edo State of Nigeria) and few other Nigerian languages are ongoing.”
He discarded the insinuations that the Ahmadis do not believe in, or relegate the teachings of the holy Prophet Muhammad, saying, “our pristine practice Islam is in line with the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and Sunna of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW).”
