Response to FaithFulNews article “Terrorism, Islam and the Gospel”

I was shocked to read the article, ‘Terrorism, Islam and the Gospel’ in FaithfulNews. The author (whose name has not been provided) should take their own advice and study Islam before coming to conclusion such as below, which is completely not true. “Lots of people seem to be ignoring the fact that every act of terrorism we’ve witnessed has been done under the banner of Islam.” The author quite conveniently forgets the fact that terrorists like Dylann Roof, Phillip Galea, Glendon Scott Crawford, Anders Breivik (so called Christians) and the list go on were not Muslims. I for one don’t see...

My religion teaches me to love Australia

As a proud Australian and member of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, I didn’t enjoy the freedom of religion and speech in Pakistan. As per constitution of Pakistan, Ordinance XX, I can be imprisoned for 3 years if I pretend or behave as a Muslim. So my love for Australia starts with a sense of gratitude for the freedom of religion that I enjoy in this gorgeous country. While Holy Quran instructs me to obey law of land [4:60], Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said “Love of one’s country is a part of faith” and current Head of worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Mirza...

Love and Respect for all

In February, a few anti-Islam groups are gathering in Sydney and Melbourne for an expensive dinner in the name of protecting freedom of speech. They will argue that Islam is on the rise and is extending its oppressive rule across the country. As a Muslim belonging to the Ahmadiyya Community, I disagree that Islam is an oppressive religion. On the contrary, Islam teaches Muslims to show love, respect and honour for mankind. In his final address to all Muslims, the Prophet Muhammad said that God has made the lives, property, and honour of every man sacred. This is the true message of Islam that I and my fellow Ahmadi Muslims will be displaying...

Annual Convention – Jalsa Salana 2016

Dear Editor, The world is facing many uncertainties and people continue to live in fear of Islam. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community works hard to promote peace by organizing interfaith dialogues, peace symposiums and annual conventions throughout the year. One such example is the 32nd Annual Convention held over 3 days at Baitul Huda mosque in western Sydney. Since Wednesday, thousands of Ahmadi Muslims have gathered to listen to speeches on how to raise the standards of worship of God and how to treat fellow humankind with respect. This unique event attracted hundreds of non-Muslim guests, including the Mayor of...

Pauline’s back at it again!

As a proud Australian and member of Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth, I would like to respond to Pauline’s hateful tweets. Why am I not surprised that Pauline Hanson’s new year resolution is to maintain her xenophobic and bigoted opinion towards Muslims? She in her latest tweets, again, called for the ban on “Islam” (I think she meant Muslims), Burqa (veil) and sharia law. Now, some of you may argue that it’s necessary we ban veil because it prevents integration and is a security risk. Others may say, it’s not founded in Islam so why to choose to wear it all...
