The first Jalsa Salana in Germany took place in 1976 on the grounds of the Fazl-e-Omar Mosque in Hamburg. After the headquarters for Germany had been relocated to Frankfurt, the Jalsa Salana was also held in the Frankfurt Nuur Mosque.
With the increasing number of members, the municipality bought a larger plot (“Nasir Bagh”) in Gross-Gerau and also left Jalsa Salana there from 1985 onwards.
This place too soon became too small, so that the Jalsa Salana took place on the Maimarktgelände in Mannheim from 1995 onwards. However, the increasing demands on organization and logistics made it necessary for the Maimarktgelände to be abandoned as a venue after a few years. Since 2011 Jalsa Salana Germany has been taking place at the exhibition grounds in Karlsruhe. It is visited annually by about 30,000 members and friends of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat.
