The next morning, several groups, including the local Amila, had the opportunity to have their photo taken with Huzoor.
Huzoor also planted a tree at the Mosque, where hundreds of Ahmadis had gathered to see off Huzoor as he moved on to the next stage of his tour after three successful and blessed days in Philadelphia.
After a silent prayer, Huzoor left Philadelphia at 11.25am and the Qafila drove for a few minutes before arriving at the Laurel Hill Cemetery, where Huzoor prayed at the grave of Dr A. George Baker the pioneer Ahmadi Muslim mentioned by Huzoor in his Friday Sermon the day before.
The local Sadr Jamaat informed Huzoor about how the Jamaat had found the grave of Dr Baker.
Huzoor enquired if the Jamaat knew of any of Dr Baker’s descendants.
In reply, Sadr Sahib said that the Jamaat had been able to trace his progeny up till the late 1950s but after that they were not aware of any members of his family.
As Huzoor returned to his car he walked over some grass that was somewhat wet and muddy. Thus, upon returning to his vehicle, a Khadim had placed a mat outside Huzoor’s car door for Huzoor to clean and dry his shoes on.
Immediately, Huzoor noticed that the Khadim who had put down the mat was the brother of the person whose car Huzoor was seated in.
Thus, Huzoor smiled and jokingly said:
“Did you put the mat there so that your brother’s car does not get dirty?”
