Khalifa of Islam makes historic address at European Parliament

Microsoft Word - Press Release - European Parliament.Dec.12“This perceived double standard is causing grievances and malice to increase in the hearts of people from Muslim countries against the major powers of the world. This anger and animosity is extremely dangerous and could boil over and explode at any time…
Let it be clear that I am not speaking in support or favour of any particular individual country. What I wish to say is that all forms of cruelty, wherever they exist, must be eradicated and stopped, regardless of whether they are perpetrated by the people of Palestine, the people of Israel or the people of any other country.”

“Always remember that peace can only be established by helping both the oppressed and the oppressor in a manner that is completely impartial, free from vested interests and devoid of all enmity. Peace is made by giving all parties an equal platform and playing field.”

Islam in the Marshall Islands

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is soon to open the first mosque in the Marshall Islands. The new mosque is a two-story cinder block construction and have about 3,300 square feet. There are two prayer halls for men and women as well as residence for the Imam, office and a library. The closest mosque in Micronesia is in Tuvalu, which was also established by this community.

It was May 2011 when the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of the United States whose motto is “Love for all, hatred for non”, concluded the lease agreement with Uliga (in Majuro) landowners to secure a site in the oceanside of the courthouse. On October 2011, the groundbreaking for the construction of a new mosque happened. National President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at, Falahud Din Shams who performed the Friday (Juma) services also led the prayers for the groundbreaking event.

According to Shams, there are many similarities between Islam and Christianity. Recognizing the Marshallese as a predominantly Christian nation, Shams and Imam I.H. Kauser stress the point that Christianity and Islam are born from the same family.  Shams explained that these religions are not enemies. Islam was just a fulfillment of what was already there. Christians are waiting for Jesus to return but Ahmadiyya muslims believe that He has already returned. They believe that the Islamic founder, the prophet Muhammad, is the second Jesus.

World Muslim Leader condemns anti-Islam film

Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“Muslims need to remember that extremism is not the answer to such provocation. Instead the answer is to reform oneself and to respond to the curses of the opponents by sending salutations on the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). And in worldly terms the Muslim world needs to unite and Muslims who live in western countries should fully utilise the power of their right to vote.”
