Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Hamilton regularly holds interfaith

The attack that took place at a Christmas market in Berlin, Germany is an appalling incident. Such a deplorable act warrants condemnation from all humans alike. Not only is this act inhumane but it also violates the teachings of Islam. It is times like this, the large number of peaceful Muslims of the world, need the support of their fellow human beings to stand united against extremism and to promote harmony.

The Holy Quran states: show kindness to parents, and to relatives, and orphans, and the needy, and to the neighbour that is a relative and the neighbour that is a stranger, and the companion by your side, and the wayfarer.

Following this teaching, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has been at the forefront of eradicating extremism and encouraging tolerance and peace worldwide. Our community in Hamilton regularly holds interfaith events as well as workshops to promote the true, peaceful teachings of Islam among members.

During the holiday season, we partake by giving back to the local community. We do so by providing Christmas gifts to our neighbours, and to various homeless shelters, as well as by donating food and holding blood drives. While acts of charity and compassion are a requirement of our faith all year long, we do so with even more passion and zeal during this joyous season.
As a Muslim, my thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the attack. I pray for (and work towards) a new year full of peace and love for all.
