I will readily admit that a look at Muslim nations today paints a rather bleak picture. Some have spiraled into chaos, while others are choking under the pale of dysfunction and directionless, corrupt leadership. Extremism, violence, and intolerance seem unstoppable.

Pakistani actor, Hamza Ali Abbasi, is always in the headlines for one reason or another. Recently, I wrote an article criticising his comments that apparently belittled Pakistan’s minorities. However, this time I am writing to congratulate him on supporting Pakistan’s minority Muslim communities – or at least those that self-identify as such.

I took this picture last month in Lahore, Pakistan. I knew of this place, I knew what happened there on May 28, 2010. But actually standing before it and seeing the undeniable reality of it sucked the life out of me for a few seconds. This is a place of worship; five times a day people come here to perform Salaat- the Muslim prayer- behind an Imam. Just like any mosque in Pakistan. But this place is not called a mosque. It goes by the name of "Darul Zikr" which means "The abode of the remembrance of God".

Experience has shown that many natural phenomenon or processes are initially discovered with limited understanding or benefit to society. However, with pain staking effort and unbiased approach to the phenomenon, many of the unknown qualities that were initially observed as bad turn out to be good upon further examination.

Jeff Day, ecumenical and interfaith relations liaison for the Archdiocese of Detroit, who presented along with Imam Yahya Luqman of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community during an Oct. 18 interfaith forum at St. Thomas More Parish in Troy. “On the other hand, if Muslims were having a dialogue and invited Catholics, we wouldn’t have attended.”

Oldest American Muslim organization responds to President Obama’s call to root out extremist ideology

 

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, the nation’s oldest Muslim organization, will gather Muslims from across the U.S. in the largest Mosque in San Bernardino County at the end of the month for its 30th annual Jalsa Salana Convention. In the wake of the San Bernardino attack, anti-Muslim backlash felt all across the country and anti-Muslim rhetoric gaining popularity in the presidential campaigns, this convention will confront the fear many have of Islam and delineate between True Islam and extremism.

At the weekend-long convention, Muslim leaders will answer President Obama’s call to decisively and unequivocally reject the hateful ideology of groups like ISIS and those interpretations of Islam that are incompatible with the values of religious tolerance, mutual respect, and human dignity. In the spirit of partnership, the convention’s doors are open to all guests, Muslim and non-Muslim alike.

The event will take place December 25th-27th at the Baitul Hameed Mosque in Chino, California. The three-day conference will include presentations on the following topics, for which subject matter experts are available for interviews:
