Feast of Generosity – Festa ta’ Ġenerożità
It was truly wonderful experience for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta to actively participate and contribute to Dar Tal-Providenza Siggiewi fundraising event Festa ta’ Ġenerożità, organised on 1 January 2022. The members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community served throughout the 12-Hour fundraising marathon with passion and dedication and contributed in this noble cause.
Caring for humanity and serving fellow human beings is a hallmark of Islamic teachings. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, ever since its foundation, has always sought to be on the very front lines of serving humanity. Explaining the philosopy of serivg others, Khalifa-tul-Masih V, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmadaba, says:
“We seek no praise and no reward for such efforts because we are merely doing what our religion has taught us to do. Our motivation and our desire to serve others is driven entirely by the teachings of Islam. The guiding light for any true Muslim is the Holy Quran, which was revealed to Islam’s Founder, the Holy Prophet Muhammadsa. Time and again, the Holy Quran has instructed Muslims to serve mankind and to fulfil the needs of those who are suffering, or are deprived in any way. It requires Muslims to be selfless and consumed by a love for others. It requires us to be ever-ready to make sacrifices for the sake of the peace and well-being of other people.” (23 October 2018, opening of the Nasir Hospital, Guatemala)
