Laiq Ahmed Atif, president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta visited the elderly residents, asked about their health, wished and prayed for their good health and presented them fruit packets as a goodwill gesture and gift at St. Vincent de Paul Residency, on 29th August 2011.
Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat is always committed to help those who are in need irrespective of their faith, creed, nationality or politics, on the basis of ‘humanity first’ and ‘love for all hatred for none’.
It organises charity events for the needy people of this planet, all around the year, and especially prior to the celebration of Eid festival in the end of Ramadan, a month of sacrifices, self purification and fasting. Fasting during Ramadan not only fosters discipline, strength and increased focus on worship; it also inspires sympathy for the hungry and poor and encourages Muslims to donate generously to those who need it the most.
Islam pays a great importance to serving mankind and looking after the old and elderly people. This activity of the Ahmadiyya Community is a clear manifestation of its care for the old and elderly people of society. The Founder of Ahmadiyya Community has given a very clear message of kindness to humanity, to his followers, he says:
“The principle to which we adhere is that we have kindness at heart for the whole of mankind. If anyone sees the house of a Hindu neighbour on fire and does not come forward to help extinguish the fire, most truly I declare that he does not belong to me. If anyone of my followers, having seen someone attempting to murder a Christian does not endeavour to save him, I most truly declare that he does not belong to us. ……….. I love mankind with the love that a compassionate mother has for her children; even more so.”
