The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat in Sierra Leone on Saturday 22nd November 2008 concluded a two-day Khudammul Ahmadiyya National Conference at the Ahmadiyya Muslim Secondary School, Kissy Dockyard in Freetown.

The conference was the first to be held since the end of rebel war in the country, some eight years ago. The occasion brought youths of the jamaat from all the four regions of the country.

Translated in English as Ahmadiyya Youths Association, the Khudammul Ahmadiyya is a social, as well as religious gathering that focuses on trying youths in Islamic practices, preaching of Islam and the Ahmadiyat doctrine, as well as involvement in public and other social works for the benefit of humanity.

This years convention embodied various activities, including midnight prayers, speeches from various Ahmadis of reputable standing, sporting activities and quiz competitions amongst members of the various jamaats in the country.

According to the president of the association Musa K D Mahmoud, principal of the Rokupr Ahmadiyya Muslim Junior School, the funding of the conference basically comes from members. But since the activity had lain dormant over the years, he said this years was successful largely to the personal financial input of the current Amir of the Ahmadiyya Mission in Sierra Leone, Saaed Ur-Rahman. He described the new Amir as inspirational and a selfless dedicator to the cause of Islam, the promotion of peace and advocate of humanity. "We can not find words to describe the tremendous financial and moral contributions of our Amir in realizing this goal during this onerous financial circumstance the association is finding itself at present," he confided.

The Amirs contribution to the Sierra Leone chapter of the Ahmadiyya Mission was also underscored by the host principal, Abdul Karim Sesay. He said since he took over as Country Amir, Saaed Ur-Rahman has brought many innovations to the mission in terms of development and the strengthening of the religion in the country entirely. "Many positive changes have been witnessed since the new Amir took office in terms of creating indelible cordiality amongst members of the jamaat, improving education through better Islamic practices as well as infrastructural developments," he opined.
