It was this day that many had waited for, this day that they yearned for, financially sacrificed for, and prayed for above all else. The Ahmadiyya Mosque in Chantilly, Virginia opened its doors for its first Friday Prayer service to the public. Named Masjid Mubarak, meaning House of Blessings, Muslims from near and far gathered at this auspicious time to worship and rejoice in the opening of the House of Blessings. Tariq Amjed, President of the chapter consisting of several areas along with Chantilly, was very excited when going to pick up the permit that would officially allow the use of the Mosque. He expressed his joy and was constantly thankful to God reciting the phrase, ‘all praise belongs to Allah’ three times. His hopes include that this place will be “good for the moral training of our children and generations to come.” Amjed has accomplished a great deal in the short time he has been President of the chapter, not forgetting others who worked so diligently alongside him to make this dream a reality.

The Friday Sermon was delivered by US Missionary, Naseem Mahdi. He spoke of the good fortune bestowed upon the Ahmadi Muslims of Virginia, touching on the visit of worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim leader, his Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad, who came to inaugurate Masjid Mubarak on June 27, 2012. Mahdi also explained Ahmadi Mosques in general to be as welcoming and accepting of all regardless of faith, leaving no room for discrimination and always promoting peace. It is expected that this place of worship will follow in that demeanor.

Evidently there was a buzz of excitement and elation as every worshipper glowed with a positive aura. The ladies could hardly contain themselves in their giddy state of mind, congratulating everyone and anyone they run into. Many have felt the aching wait to embrace a designated place where they could settle down; as opposed to the rented place they occupied which seemed to get smaller and smaller as the community grew. Madiha Amjed, a young student was one of these people, who was overjoyed knowing they would have a proper home. “When I first went into the Mosque I felt really proud that this is our home and that we’re going take care of it,” she explained.

It is even more fortunate that they will be able to spend the month of Ramadhan there. Northern Virginia can be proud to have their first Ahmadiyya Mosque.
