Imam Ebrima Sillah of Lasso Wharf mosque in Banjul South has said that the Ahmadiyya Jamaatul Muslim sect is a threat to Islam in The Gambia.

Imam Sillah was speaking during his 28 February 2020 Friday sermon, in which he alleged that the Ahmadiyya sect was brought to The Gambia by two people from Nigeria during the time of Farama Singhateh. But it has spread all over the country and majority of them are from the Muslim communities.

According to him, the Muslim name the Ahmadiyyas are using as cover-up should change “because they are non-believers.”

He said many Gambians followed the Ahmadiyyas as a result of their wealth and they became influential by giving out monies and bags of rice.

Imam Sillah has called on the entire Muslims in The Gambia to distance themselves from the Ahmadiyyas and have faith in God and believe that Muhammad (SAW) is the last prophet sent by Allah and there will be no other prophet after as he is the seal of the prophets.
