One event for example: In Gambia, Jama'at established in a village, Ahmadis were opposed heavily. Ahmadis invited all village in a programe. Missioanry delivered speech and informed them about Islam. The chief of village said before all village that I had heard a lot about Jama'at but today the speech of missionary began with Kalima, Surah al-Fatiha and salutation on Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him). As soon as I heard this all my doubts were removed. I am becoming Ahmadi and ask others to do so. By the grace of Allah the Exalted 635 people in the village did Bai'at.
