Belize: Ahmadiyya Muslim Mosque Officially Opened for Use

While it is not yet official inauguration of the mosque, today, the Ahmadiyya Muslim community in Belize officially opened its new house of prayer and headquarters at mile one and a half on the George Price Highway. Starting today, the facility will be available for use by not only members of the Muslim community, but also other religious groups that would need a space for worship. The official opening coincides with the day the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at community was founded back in 1889, one hundred and thirty-two years ago.

“This mosque is a house of God so it is not only for Muslims alike, but it is for our Christian, Hindu and Jewish brothers as well. So it is a place of worship and a place for unity and love.”

Naveed Mangla, President, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Belize

“The name was given by our current leader of the community. Masjid Noor, meaning the Mosque of Light, where whoever comes they will find light in closeness to God Almighty or where to communicate with God Almighty. We started the foundation stone around fifteen months ago and by the Grace of God, this has been built in a unique way because the people that built it were the Canadians volunteers that had built another mosque in Canada in a similar way.”

“This is the worship area that will be able to house two hundred people. There is an office area here. A library is upstairs; there is a missionary residence and a guesthouse and a kitchen.”

  1. For every mosque destroyed in Pakistan several mosques are being opened elsewhere. Enemies of Ahmadiyyat: you cannot win.

    • God bless you and all Ahmadiyya
      people in the world. Your enemies will eat dust as the enemies of the Jews since 1967 !:)
      After my readings as to what your people
      have gone through I don’t understand why
      you are not staunch defenders of Jews and Israel!
      Your people are treated as family and brothers and sisters in Israel!
      Enough criticism of Israel or have you ben poisoned
      beyond repair! If you have criticism of the true indigenous country of the Jews -Israel-
      discuss this in private with Jews!
      Start acting honourably !

      • We are for justice, even for people who do not give it to us. But, of course, we highly appreciate Israel’s treatment of our Ahmadiyya Community in Kababir, Haifa!
