A Muslim women’s group opened the doors of a new mosque in Brampton recently to host the then-mayor and other dignitaries at an event celebrating the life of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).
On Sunday, Nov. 25, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Association of Brampton Flowertown hosted the event featuring poetry and presentations on the life and characteristics of the Holy Prophet of Islam.
Then-mayor of Brampton Linda Jeffrey and MPs Kamal Khera and Sonia Sidhu were among the 130 attendees at the event. Khera presented a certificate to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Brampton to recognize the occasion and the group’s contributions to the wider community.
After the event, the officials toured the mosque, which recently had its construction completed.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Association is an auxiliary of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at, a sect of Islam whose members believe that the second coming of the Messiah was fulfilled in the person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, India. The Jama’at is known for its humanitarian efforts and the motto, “Love for all, hatred for none.”
