A message of loyalty and peace on 10th Anniversary of 9/11

The 9/11 is known as a day of an extreme terrorism and heinous crime against humanity. Ten years ago on this day 3,000 people were put to death, and thousands of families and millions of peace loving people were left to feel a great pain and sorrow in their hearts and minds on this great human loss. And this year is the 10th anniversary of these barbaric and heinous attacks. The worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat has since then condemned these terrorist attacks and has spread the message of peace and loyalty all around the world.

Terrorists caused death and destruction on Sept. 11, 2001. But they also hijacked the faith of Islam. By painting a violent, militant picture of the religion, terrorist extremists have created suspicion of all Muslims. But the truth is that terrorists do not represent Islam or Muslims.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has, since its founding, upheld the sanctity of all life as emphasized by Islam. The Holy Quran teaches that life is sacred and reaffirms Biblical teaching that whoever unjustly kills a single person is as if he had killed all of mankind; and whoever saves the life of one person is as if he has saved the life of all of humanity (Quran: 5:33). In his Farewell Pilgrimage address, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “Even as this month, land and day of Pilgrimage are holy, so has God made the blood, property and honor of every human being sacred.”

Laiq Ahmed Atif, president Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta, said:

“The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta has also launched its nationwide campaign for peace and loyalty. The campaign includes ‘Peace Conferences’, ‘Inter-faith Dialogues’ and distribution of flyers by our members door-to-door and in public areas. On Saturday and Sunday 10-11, September the Community is distributing these flyers to the public. The Community in Malta believes in loyalty to Malta, in respect, in freedom and in peace. The community extremely believes in the sanctity of human life. It will also be appropriate to inform that our Community in USA has launched a campaign to collect 10,000 units of blood during these days; and the Community will hold blood drives at all its mosques and prayer centers across USA, and in collaboration with other community organizations. The goal is to collect enough blood to save 30,000 lives in honour of those who lost theirs on 9/11.” 

Laiq Ahmed Atif, president Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta, said:

“We do not justify terrorism of any kind whatsoever, whatever the colour, religion, sentiment or objective the terrorist may claim to represent. Islam does not approve of disorder in any form. Islam is far from teaching terrorism. It teaches rule of law, obedience to the authorities and does not let anyone take the law into his own hands. The Holy Quran states: “O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey His Messenger and those who are in authority over you.’ (Ch.4: V.60)

The words, those in authority, in their wider significance include even such non-Muslims as may happen to be in authority over Muslims. The practice of the Holy Prophet as well as his sayings make it clear that in secular matters Muslims should obey even such of their rulers as are not Muslims. And if some people say that it is not necessary for a Muslim to follow any non-Islamic government, this is utterly false and against Islamic teachings as mentioned above.

So, members of Ahmadiyya Community are loyal to the cause of peace and to the countries they live in. Our members in Malta are law abiding and extremely loyal to this country and we always try to serve this country as much as we can.

We pray may peace prevail in the world. Long live Malta!”
