Al-Hadi mosque opens its doors in the wake of New Zealand violence

The Al-Hadi mosque in central southeast Edmonton opened its doors this weekend to educate and show thanks to the community in the wake of an anti-Islamic mass shooting in New Zealand.

March 23 is celebrated by the Ahmadiyya Muslim sect as the coming of the messiah Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. This year it came a week after a white supremacist terrorist opened fire during afternoon prayers at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, killing 50 people and wounding 50 more.

In the wake of the violence, Edmonton’s Al-Hadi mosque at 7005 98 Ave. used the holy day as a chance to welcome people from all religions inside to counter misinformation about Islam and show the community what takes place inside the religion.

“Love for everyone, hatred for none,” said Imam Nasir Mahmood Butt. “Our response of that incident in New Zealand is that may god give guidance to that man and to that kind of mentality.”
