The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA recently created TABLIGH SOCIAL MEDIA TEAM led by Dr. Waseem Syed (1) to track the attack on Islam in the media and respond appropriately, (2) appreciate and acknowledge comments made in favor of Islam.
Anyone one can join the team via RingCentral.
This is a huge task and we need enthusiastic participants. For some of us, it may be easier to post a response to adverse comments on Islam. Others may be good at just writing a note of appreciation for positive views and comments.
The group shares many great helpful tips based on experience. It is a great opportunity to learn, sharpen our skills and above all tap into our own personality traits and boost our HUSN E SALOOK – the best qualities in us as human beings to win hearts of others.
In this regards, I suggested today that we should not shy away from from reaching out to appreciating anything good being done by
ICNA, ISNA, CAIR or Muslim Writers Club and at the same time share our own views. We adopt the same approach when we interact with Christians, Jews and Hinds many of whom may be critical of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and the blessings of Allah be on him).
As Ahmadi Muslims, we are responsible to setting the tone and guiding others with our own examples and success stories.
In my view, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, is a prime model for all. In it we all play a part in upholding the prime model by own personal example of love and compassion and keeping our doors open for all under all circumstances.
Many Christian missionaries took to pain, abuse and even threat of life in serving and molding people to bring them out of stone age (life cannibalism) socialize and make them a modern society. Fiji Islands is one such example. Dark skinned natives had no culture, language or means of dressing as in 1800s no machineries or factories existing. The White Christian missionaries worked tireless to learn the local dialect and produced a Bible in the native language which became a source and way of living as the missionary tough the hostile natives aone at a time.
Their exemplary services are deeply appreciated by the local natives. They consumed with the sacrifices and services provided by the early Christian missionary that enable to remain deeply loyal to Christianity and the Bible.
By the Grace of Allah we have a very viable presence of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Fiji. However, winning the hearts of the local natives remains a big challenge which can be done by serving the society the second half of our faith. The day we will transcend barriers and start serving them, amazing changes will be brought into play by Allah, the Gracious, The Merciful.
I believe, what applies to Fiji situation is also applicable to American communities where service to humanity should be our prime focus.
Combining worshipping of Allah with service to humanity is an integral part of our faith.
This is where we place our LOVE FOR ALL AND HATRED FOR NONE into play.
I sincerely hope, our readers will appreciate our mission and join us for for blessings and success in life.
