On 29 August 2022, a group consisting of 27 Khuddam, Atfal and Ansar from Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Scotland started their journey to Inverness from the Baitur Rahman Mosque, Glasgow.
Inverness is located 175 miles north of Glasgow. Thus, up to this city, which is the last northern city and the edge of Britain, various preaching activities were held for three days.
The Inverness Public Library was contacted long ago and they permitted us to organise a Quran exhibition there. On the first day, the library was visited and a copy of the Holy Quran with English translation was presented as a gift.
A Quran exhibition was organised which included the German, Spanish, French, Greek, Portuguese, Polish and English translations of the Holy Quran.
Around 5,000 tabligh leaflets were distributed from house to house and there was an opportunity to talk to various local citizens and convey the peaceful teachings of Islam to them.
A team set up tabligh stalls in different areas of the city and outside shopping centres where a large number of local citizens visited and received Jamaat literature.
A Christian who is a professor of Islamic Studies showed a special interest and stayed at our stall for quite some time, exchanging ideas. On his way, he also gave his contact details and promised to join our events and said that he was impressed by the peaceful teaching of Islam Ahmadiyyat.
