Unforgettable Story about Indonesian Fishermen during Ramadan 2011

The most unforgettable incident was when they offered to do some renovations upon the mosque. They have seen that some of the ceilings were crumble need to be repaired. I have accepted their request by providing all the materials they needed. They have done  great job. In addition, they also have made an information board to be installed  in front of the mosque. I have made a joke to them by saying : “In Indonesia, some of Ahmadiyya mosques had been vandalized, but you are here to renovate Ahmadiyya Mosque without being paid.” They replied those who vandalized your mosque had no knowledge about Ahmadiyya at all. They should not have done those shameful deeds which really put very bad image to Islam. They also have promised me that they would try to give explanations about Ahmadiyya to whom they know when they get back to Indonesia. By the grace of Allah, we had very good relationship. Until such time all of them had to leave because the Government released their vessels due to the penalty paid by the company. And we would keep this sweet memories in our minds, insha Allah.

Swiss Journalist interviews Ahmadiyya Muslim Missionary of Tuvalu

He added that Islam means love, peace and submission to God. That is how Ahmadiyya Muslim approaches the people by using this wonderful motto “Love for all, hatred for none” (In Tuvaluan “Alofa kia latou katoa, seai sefili”). People of Tuvalu are well known as loving, caring and peaceful people. Therefore by assuring them that Islam is the religion of peace and love and displaying upon them the real implementation of the teachings of Islam according to the Holy Quran, people might accept Ahmadiyya Muslim Community to live together with them even though majority of them are Christians.
