Gratefulness is a basic human quality. Allah is Shakoor, meaning the Grateful! The Holy Prophet Muhammad  has said that if one is not thankful to human beings one can not thank Allah!

Humanity is facing intense situation due to COVID 19 and the essential workers are the key people running our lives smooth and comfortable.

To show appreciation to the hard work of the Essential Workers in these hard times, women and girls of Ahmadiyya Muslim community living in the Peace Village, Maple, Ontario, created decorative posters with messages of appreciation, gratitude, love and prayers for the Waste Collectors and displayed these all around the Peace Village.

On Tuesday, May 05, 2020, the waste collection day, everyone was anxiously waiting to see waste collector trucks coming on the street. What a satisfaction and joy all of them got to see the smiles on the Essential Workers face when they entered Peace Village and saw colourful messages of thankfulness greeting them at every door.

Peace Village, is a residential area of about 260 homes built on a 50-acre (200,000 m2) parcel of land near Bai’tul Islam Mosque in Maple. It is home to about 1500 Ahmadi Muslim members.  All nine streets within the neighbourhood are named after the names of Ahmadiyya Khalifas and other prominent Ahmadi scholars. The main street is called Ahmadiyya Avenue. The community mosque ‘Baitul Islam’ is visible from all the streets.
