Religious leader calls for discipline

The Ameer and Missionary in charge of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission in Ghana, Maulvi Alhaji Mohammed Bin-Salih, has called for greater discipline and co-operation among Ghanaians, particularly the Ahmadis, to build a progressive society.

According to him, without discipline, it would be difficult for any community to succeed in its transformation process.

Alhaji Bin-Salih was addressing members of the Ahmadiyya Community at its central mosque at Asafo as part of his maiden visit to the region.

Maulvi Alhaji Bin-Salih succeeded the late Maulvi Wahab Adams, who passed on about three months ago.

The new Missionary was born in Wa in the Upper West Regional capital and trained as a professional teacher before pursuing further education in Arabic in Pakistan. Maulvi Alhaji Bin-Salih had been a Missionary for the Northern, Upper West, and Greater Accra regions and was also the first Missionary to have opened branches of Ahmadiyya in Eastern Africa.

He also acted as the Ameer and Missionary in Ghana before his appointment. The visit to Kumasi was his first official assignment outside since assuming office. The congregation met the new leader at the Kumasi Airport before escorting him to the Regional Headquarters at Asafo. The new leader was met by a team from Kumasi at the Asafo Mosque.

The Ashanti Regional President of the Mission, Mr Hakeem Baidoo, recounted the role of Maulvi Bin Salih in the Mission’s developmental agenda, and stressed that it was no wonder he was chosen to be the leader after the sudden death of Maulvi Wahab Adams.

Maulvi Alhaji Bin Salih praised the members for the warm reception, saying he could only succeed in his new assignment if only the people will be disciplined, co-operative and supportive.
