Ahmad, who is entitled as the Caliph, will be visiting the newly-renovated mosque of the community in Lloydminster, which was purchased in 2016 by the local Ahmadiyya chapter.

According to Tariq Azeem, the imam of the local chapter, the visit is a great honour for Ahmadiyya community in Lloydminster.
“His Holiness aims to guide everyone on how the basic value of justice taught in the Holy Quran is essential for success,” said Azeem, in a written statement.
