In Hillingdon, followers from the Baitul Am mosque in Royal Lane watched proceedings by video link.

Spokesman Naeeem Ud Din said: “In addition to the main Jalsa, every town and city in Britain where there are Ahmadi Muslims celebrated the occasion in their homes and in their mosques.

“It was a truly wonderful, uplifting, and spiritual occasion.

“As a community, we are founded on a mission of spreading peace and love, and this unique convention reinforces our commitment to society.”
