Holy Qur’an Exhibition – a first for Waikato Residents
The residents of Hamilton will have the opportunity to see the beautiful bounties of the Holy Qur’an in over 45 major languages of the world, including Te Reo Maori by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community who is hosting the first ever public exhibition in Hamilton this Saturday, 16th May 2015 in the Rotary Lounge, Hamilton Gardens between 10.30 am and 3.30 pm.
The community’s National President, Mr. Mohammed Iqbal said, “we have successfully held similar exhibitions in Auckland, but are delighted that we are bringing the opportunity to Waikato residents for the first time. It is very important to invite New Zealanders to witness what the true virtues of Islam are, given the negative stereotypes and publicity the Islam has attracted as a result of barbaric practices from terrorist organizations like ISIS and Boko Harem.”
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community’s Central Missionary, Mr. Shafiq ur Rehman will also be conducting a number of short seminars throughout the day educating the visitors about the history of the Holy Book and some of the key messages of peace, compassion, and forgiveness which was revealed to the Holy Prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) for mankind.
“The Holy Qur’an was revealed for all mankind and therefore it becomes our responsibility to ensure that the message is conveyed to all races through all languages. The community’s effort is never ending in having the word of Almighty God translated in many different languages and to ensure that people understand the true Islam”, said Mr. Rehman.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is a dynamic, fast-growing international revival movement within Islam. Founded in 1889 by Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) in Punjab, India, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community spans over 204 countries with membership exceeding tens of millions. The New Zealand branch of this community was established in 1987 and is a registered charitable organization, endeavoring to be an active and integrated community within New Zealand society.
