The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta in collaboration with the Gzira Local Council celebrated the festive season together with the local community including elderly, people with special needs and children from Gzira St Clare Primary School, on 9th December 2016.
The Mayor of Gzira, Mr. Conrad Borg Manche’ and Laiq Ahmed Atif, President Ahmadiyya Community Malta, together presented gift hampers to those attended the event.
The Founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community always emphasised on serving and showing compassion to fellow human beings. He writes:
“That religion is no religion that does not inculcate sympathy, nor does that man deserve to be called a man who does not have sympathy in him… If you are an elder, be kind to the younger ones and do not belittle them. If you are rich, serve the poor but do not treat them with pride and disdain. If you wish God to be pleased with you, then be like two brothers born of one mother.”
“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.” FIND MORE:
