Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat invites
The Islamic reform community Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat has invested in its beliefs on the nationwide day of the open mosque and informed about the peculiarities of the church and the position of the woman in Islam.

Under the motto "We are all Germany," the Muslim reform community Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat invited to the mosques in various places throughout the Federal Republic of Germany on the day of German Unity.

The Afiyat Mosque in Badstra├če 22a in Waldshut-Tiengen was also open from 11 am to 6 pm and it was very well attended. Almost 100 visitors of different ages were interested in the teachings of Islam and held talks with the Imam as well as the members of the Reform Community present.

On many large information boards the origin and development history of Islam was explained and, in particular, the beliefs of the Ahmadiyya community. "It is very nice and important that the people here show interest in Islam and inform themselves," said Joachim Baumert, mayor of the town of Waldshut-Tiengen, who also visited the facility together with his family. "Only in this way can prejudices be dismantled and bridges built," stressed Baumert.

Since 1986, the Islamic reform community has had a prayer room in the Schmitzinger Strasse, and since April this year the faithful are meeting in the mosque in Badstra├če. Here there is a large prayer room, mainly for the men and the cellar floor, another separate prayer room for the women as well as the corresponding rooms for ritual washing before prayer.

The Imams are trained at a separate university near Darmstadt, the course lasts 14 semesters and includes Islamic theology as well as all other religions and the Arabic language. Especially through the employment of young imams, the reform community wants to strengthen access to young people in order to be active in preventive activities. "We want to pick up teenagers, teenagers and children in their respective situations," said Mansoor Ahmed Ghuman, the Imam-based agency in Tiengen, adding, "It's about mediating and showing the 13- to 16- what distinguishes us as Muslims. "

In their prayer room, the women also reported on the position of women in Islam and the clear distribution of their roles. As the principle of the Koran, "paradise is under the feet of the mother," women and mothers enjoy special rights, but also have the duty to pass on the values ​​of Islam to the next generation. "The woman is by nature created to give birth to children, not the man, but woman and man belong together to have children," Qudsia gives Umatul understand. Therefore, the reform community rejects homosexual couples.

A peaceful communication with all people and all religions, however, is the aim of the Ahmadiyya community and also the integration of refugees, see the imams as an important challenge.
