Muslims mark historic 100-year anniversary with community service projects

February 15th marks a historic moment for the Muslim community in America as it completes 100 years since the establishment of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, the oldest Muslim organization and movement in the U.S. The Centennial will be marked with an expression of gratitude to America for 100 years by serving local communities in each of its 62 chapters around the country. From feeding the hungry and food deliveries to tree planting and coat drives, thousands of Muslims will give back this Saturday in a show of gratitude.

As the oldest Muslim organization in the country, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA was established on February 15, 1920, when its first Missionary arrived on the shores of the United States. In commemoration, February 15, 2020, will begin with an anticipated 10,000 worshippers gathering in the middle of the night at mosques around the country to pray for another century of progress for this nation. Later in the day, they will then roll up their sleeves for a collective community service project.

“We have been here 100 years, deeply love this country, and have a track record of serving this nation and its people since the beginning,” said Amjad Mahmood Khan, National Director of Public Affairs for Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA. “We invite Americans to join us at this historic moment and collaborate to make this country the best it can be.”

About the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community:

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is a dynamic, reformist and fast-growing international movement within Islam. Founded in 1889, the Community spans 213 countries. Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, established in 1920, is the oldest American-Muslim organization.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the only Islamic organization to believe that the long- awaited messiah has come in the person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) of Qadian, India. Ahmad claimed to be the metaphorical second coming of Jesus of Nazareth and the divine guide, whose advent was foretold by the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad. The Community believes that God sent Ahmad, like Jesus, to end religious wars, condemn bloodshed and reinstitute morality, justice and peace. Ahmad’s advent has brought about an unprecedented era of Islamic revival and moderation. He divested Muslims of fanatical beliefs and practices by vigorously championing Islam’s true and essential teachings.
