Calls for prayer, patience, and dialogue to overcome extremism
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA categorically condemns the barbaric attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris, France, and mourns with the families of the victims.
Reports indicate that two culprits have killed at least 12 innocent civilians and injured several more. The Community mourns the loss of innocent life and prays that may God Almighty bring patience to the hearts of those grieving the loss of loved ones.
“Nothing justifies this barbaric and inhumane attack,” said Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, National Vice President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA. “Islam and Prophet Muhammad teach that life is sacrosanct and specifically forbids any worldly punishment for blasphemy. The culprits behind this atrocity have violated every Islamic tenet of compassion, justice, and peace.”
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community asks all people to work together to eradicate extremism in all its forms. We continue to pray for peace and for those suffering.

Leap of Faith - Jumping into the Darkness
*A modern understanding of faith is to liken it to what some call a ‘leap of faith’, to be able to jump into the unknown, albeit darkness. A very dear friend once told me that while he certainly had heard all the various reasons given to make financial sacrifices, he did not have the strength to take the next step - he felt he was being asked to take a leap of faith, to jump into the darkness.*
Just a few days ago I received a similar message that another member had been asked to make financial sacrifices for the Blessed Waqf-e-Jadid Scheme but he’d declined saying he was not moved to do anything beyond the obligatory Chanda Aam and Jalsa Salana dues.
Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA condemns anti-Ahmadi and anti-Semitic hate speech

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA categorically condemns the hate-filled and false statements made on GEO TV’s 'Subah Pakistan’ program.
The hate-filled ‘Subah Pakistan’ program broadcasted in Pakistan on GEO Television and by subscription in the United States of America on December 22, 2014. Hosted by the infamous hate preacher Amir Liaqat Hussein, who has a history of promoting terrorism, the program claimed that “Ahmadi Muslims and Jews are the enemies of Pakistan” [and] “the culprits behind the Peshawar Attack.”
This demonstrably false language promotes national and international anti-Ahmadi hatred and anti-Semitism. The program additionally alleged that Ahmadi Muslims are the “common enemy of all sects of Islam” and are “enemies of Pakistan responsible for various terrorism plots against Pakistanis.”
In an attempt to further incite hatred against Ahmadi Muslims, the program falsely alleged that Ahmadi Muslims commit blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad. This is a particularly incendiary statement both because it is false and also because Pakistan enforces the death penalty for blasphemy. Tragically, extremists in Pakistan have murdered innocent civilians on multiple occasions on the mere accusation of blasphemy.
