E-mail Print PDF
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the oldest Muslim-American organization in the United States (here since 1920), has launched a nationwide “Muslims for Peace” campaign that features the peace message on 100 NYC transit buses and is being delivered door-to-door across the US (http://MuslimsForPeace.org). The St. Paul, Minnesota chapter of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community will participate in the brochure distribution Saturday, October 30th between 1:30 pm and 4:00 pm..

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is a dynamic, fast-growing worldwide movement within Islam. Members exceed tens of millions in more than 195 countries around the world. It was founded in Qadian, India, in 1889 by Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, who we believe is the messiah as foretold by Prophet Muhammad.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has championed the separation of mosque and state, non-violence and the end of violent jihad for the last 121 years.

Members of our community are reaching out to fellow Americans all over the country with peace brochures to let them know that Muslims do practically stand for peace.
