About Jalsa Salana

(In the words of the Promised Messiah, peace be on him)

It is essential that those who are able to afford to travel should attend the Jalsa which is in so many ways a source of blessings. They should not mind minor losses in the way. God gives ample rewards to sincere believers at every step and no hardship or trouble goes to waste (it is definitely rewarded by God). I should like to make it clear that this Jalsa must not be taken like other gatherings. This is a special event that has been based on the succor of God. (Ishtihar, 7 December 1891)

I pray to God that He may be with those who are coming to attend the Jalsa and that He may grant them great rewards and He may show mercy and His grace. O God! O You who are the Greatest Granter, the Benevolent and Merciful, and the Remover of hardships, do respond to all these prayers of mine and grant us victory over our opponents, with great shining signs, for You have the power to do whatever You like.. (Ishtihar, 7 December 1891)

The aim of the gathering is that the sincere members of the Jamaat should be able to derive religious benefits and at the same time they should acquire more knowledge and advance in their nearness to God. One advantage is that meeting their friends will broaden their circle of brotherhood and it will strengthen the mutual ties. (Asmani Faisla)
