The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta continues its services to reach as many people, homes and organisations as possible to extend its festive greetings and to show solidarity by visiting them and presenting them festive cakes (panettone). This time the community has presented these traditional cakes for Nanniet Malta which were presented to Mr. Philip Michael Chircop, Founder President of Nanniet Malta, by Imam Laiq Ahmed Atif, President Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta, at its offices in Gzira.
Imam Atif highlighted the importance of serving our elderly parents and grandparents and said that: “Guiding towards the kind treatment of parents, God says in the Holy Quran: “Show kindness to parents. If one of them attain old age with thee or both of them, never say unto them any word expressive of disgust nor rebuke them, nor be tough or harsh or coarse to them, but always address them with kind, gentle and excellent speech. And lower to them the wing of humility out of tenderness.” (17:24-25)
The word used for “excellent speech” in the Arabic language, is a very profound word which means to always speak with your parents in a highly esteemed, dignified, respectful and unique manner. It also means to always treat them with extreme honour, dignity and courtesy. Therefore, we must share these happy moments with them. MaltaHaber – TimesOfMalta
