On behalf of Ahmadiyya Muslim Women's Association in Airdrie, I wish to convey my sincere condolences and deep sympathy to the family and friends of the Muslim family that lost their lives in the cowardly terrorist attack that happened in London, Ont. on June 6.
With all the suffering going on in the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the last thing anyone needs is to feel unsafe while going for a walk due to their ethnicity or their faith. Instead of focusing on our differences, we need to step up and fulfil our responsibility to alleviate the pain and suffering of other people.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim community believes in "Love for all, Hatred for none." This has been our experience in Airdrie, where we always feel welcome and included. Our Ahmadiyya Muslim Women's Association is working hard to give back to our community through various efforts, such as donations to help the Airdrie Food Bank, donation food boxes to Alpha House Calgary and volunteering for different events in the community.
We are always looking for ways to increase our efforts and reach out to more and more people to show them that Islam is not what terrorists do in the name of religion, but what Canadian Muslims are doing every day in their communities. It is essential to our faith as Muslims to show love for God by expressing love and compassion for his creation by serving our community and humanity.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Women's Association will keep on improving and increasing our efforts in service of our community to spread the message of love and peace.
A member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Womens Association
