On the front of the Baitun Naseer Mosque in Cumberland is a poster that reads, ‘Love for all, hatred for none.’
Following attacks on two mosques in New Zealand, that left 50 people dead, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at has launched the ‘Visit a Mosque’ campaign around the world, to try and bring communities together and answer any questions residents might have about Muslims or their faith.
The Imam spoke on Tuesday about the Cumberland community, explaining that they have been welcoming, and since the attacks in New Zealand, have been sending messages of love and support.
The campaign is also aimed at combating Islamophobia, giving Canadians a chance to meet their Muslim neighbours.
“The ‘Visit a Mosque’ campaign sims to dispel misconcenptions about Muslims and build bridges of understanding,” Imam Iqbal noted. “The motto of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at is love for all, hatred for none, and this couldn’t be more relevant.”
The Baitun Naseer Mosque at 2620 Market Street will be open to the public every evening the week, from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.
