Interfaith harmony week 2022

The Malta Foundation for the Wellbeing of Society, in collaboration with the Malta Trust Foundation, organised an event that brought together leaders from 15 different faiths and religions to send a common message of love and acceptance at the occasion of interfaith harmony week 2022.

MFWS chair H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, said: “As a society there is an urgent need to embrace dialogue among different faiths and religions to secure society’s mutual understanding, produce a sense of harmony and improve cooperation.”

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta also participated in this interfaith event. Laiq Ahmed Atif, President Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta, recited some Islamic prayers. On behalf of the children, Nauman Atif (Waqf-e-Nau) read the following message.

“In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful. Asslamoaleikum – Peace be on you all. H.E Excellency, distinguished guests and friends. I Believe in God – I Cherish Humanity – I Uphold the Values of: Unity and Togetherness – Harmony and Peace – Respect and Friendship. And, my motto is, LOVE FOR ALL – HATRED FOR NONE.TimesOfMaltaww.tvm.com.mttvm.com.mt

أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ۔ بِسۡمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحۡمٰنِ الرَّحِیۡمِ۔ رَبِّ اجۡعَلۡ ہٰذَا بَلَدًا اٰمِنًا وَّارۡزُقۡ اَہۡلَہٗ مِنَ الثَّمَرٰتِ مَنۡ اٰمَنَ مِنۡہُمۡ بِاللّٰہِ وَالۡیَوۡمِ الۡاٰخِرِ۔ رَبَّنَاۤ اٰتِنَا فِی الدُّنۡیَا حَسَنَۃً وَّفِی الۡاٰخِرَۃِ حَسَنَۃًوَّقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ۔رَبَّنَا اغۡفِرۡ لَنَا ذُنُوۡبَنَا وَاِسۡرَافَنَا فِیۡۤ اَمۡرِنَاوَثَبِّتۡ اَقۡدَامَنَاوَانۡصُرۡنَا عَلَی الۡقَوۡمِ الۡکٰفِرِیۡنَ۔رَبَّنَا ظَلَمۡنَاۤ اَنۡفُسَنَاوَاِنۡ لَّمۡ تَغۡفِرۡ لَنَاوَتَرۡحَمۡنَا لَنَکُوۡنَنَّ مِنَ الۡخٰسِرِیۡنَ۔ اَنِّیۡ مَسَّنِیَ الضُّرُّ وَاَنۡتَ اَرۡحَمُ الرّٰحِمِیۡنَ۔ رَّبِّ اغۡفِرۡ وَارۡحَمۡ وَاَنۡتَ خَیۡرُ الرّٰحِمِیۡنَ۔

I Seek Refuge with Allah from Satan the accursed. In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful. ‘My Lord, make this a town of peace and provide fruits and blessings to its people – who believe in Allah and the Day of Judgement,’ (2: 127). ‘Our Lord, grant us blessings and good in this world as well as blessings and good in the world to come, and protect us from the sufferings and torment of the Fire.’ (2:202). ‘Our Lord; Forgive us our mistakes, our sins and our excesses in our conduct, and make firm our steps and help us against the disbelieving. (3.148). ‘Our Lord, we have wronged ourselves; and if Thou forgive us not and have not mercy on us, we shall surely be of the lost.’ (7:24). My Lord, ‘Affliction has touched me, and Thou art the Most Merciful of all who show mercy.’ (21:84). ‘My Lord, forgive and have mercy, and Thou art the Best of those who show mercy.’ (23:119) – Ameen.
