South Australia: Interfaith Symposium, My Religion and Liberation of Women

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Women Auxiliary SA will present an Interfaith Symposium, My Religion and Liberation of Women at Flinders University on Sunday, 6 August 2017. This is a Women-only event.


 

The Worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Association endeavors to introduce the true face of Islam and for more than one hundred years the Ahmadiyya Muslim community has been leading a peaceful revival of Islam. From the time it was founded in India in 1889 it has enjoyed an unrivalled record for interfaith and for its efforts to build cohesive societies. We organize regular peace symposiums and run a free to view satellite channel MTA International (available on Sky 787) dedicated to spreading harmony among and between all people regardless of faith and background, further underlining our openness as a community that promotes integration based on mutual respect.

Islam’s message was revived by the founder of our community, Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (peace be upon him) and we are the only community of Muslims to have accepted him as the Promised Messiah and Mahdi who was prophesied for this age.

From the outset, he repeatedly emphasized the need for us to be mindful of our duty to God and His creation and to reflect our commitment to peace in our daily lives. He rejected the concept of a violent jihad, reminded us of the equality of mankind and of our duty to care for the needy. He also underlined the need to respect all religions, to abide by the law of the land and to be loyal to the government of the country in which we live.

We are not funded by any country, government or organization. It is our belief that to do good works requires us to make sacrifices of time and money and that is why the Ahmadiyya Muslim community is entirely self-funding. Members donate willingly to support the work of the community as well as to a whole host of charitable and humanitarian activities that we carry out – almost all of which are run by volunteers.

In essence “Love for All, Hatred for None” is the unique banner upheld by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and a message that we believe is the basis for lasting peace.

A community that stands for education, integration and interfaith peace we welcome all to visit our mosques as well as our numerous seminars and events that bring people together to understand more about each other.
