Laiq Ahmed Atif, president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta presented food items together with milk and water to the Civil Protection Department, as a Humanitarian Aid for Libya. He met with the officers at duty and presented them the items and explained about the services of the Ahmadiyya Community for humanity.
Laiq Ahmed Atif prayed and said that, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat hopes and prays for the peace and security of Libyan people as they are passing from a hard and difficult time. May God bless them all and may peace prevail soon in Libya.
The Promised Messaih(as) , the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, declared more than hundred years ago, in his book, A Message of Peace’:
“Irrespective of whether we are Muslims or Non-Muslims, and although we have many differences, we believe in God Who has created this world and all that is contained in it. We also claim commonality as human beings. It is our duty that we should become friends with a clear conscience and honest intentions. We should sympathise with each other on all matters temporal or religious. My Friends! That faith is no faith that does not teach sympathy for mankind. A human being is not human unless he displays some element of sympathy. Our God has made no distinction in any nation. Whatever faculties were given to the ancient nations have been given to the Arab, Persian, Chinese, Japanese, European and American nations. The earth serves as a common ground for all and the Sun, the Moon and the Stars perform common service for all mankind. These divine manifestations teach us that we should also treat each other equally, with amity and with tolerance. Narrow-mindedness or hard-heartedness has no place in human relations.”
The Promised Messiah (peace be on him) had a great compassion for mankind. He said, “Sympathy for all mankind is a moral obligation and a duty (Arbaeen)…that religion is no religion which does no inculcate sympathy, nor does that man deserve to be called a man who does no have sympathy in him (message of peace).”
The Promised Messiah (peace be on him) said, “The teachings of the Holy Qurán can be divided into two major categories. The first being unity of God, love and obedience to Him. The second is to treat kindly your brothers and fellow beings… be kind and merciful to humanity…always work for the good of mankind.”
Taking the cue from the Promised Messiah (a.s.) you would note Ahmadi Muslims excel all others in their commitment to prayers, in praying for the needy and the suffering and serving mankind at every level and at every time, irrespective of faith, colour, nationality or politics.
