American Muslims Mourn For Boston Marathon Victims

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community condemns bombings and calls for unity against extremism

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA expresses its most heartfelt condolences to the victims and families affected by the bombings in Boston today and prays that God Almighty gives them patience, comfort and strength during this time of immense struggle. While details of the attack continue to emerge, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA condemns this horrific act in the strongest possible manner. The Community prays that those responsible for today’s bombing are swiftly brought to justice and that peace is once again restored.

“As Muslims, our duty is both to God and to humanity,” said Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA National Vice President Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, “and we want our fellow Americans to be confident that we stand united with them, especially in this difficult time.” Moreover, the Community’s Boston chapter is available to provide assistance to those affected by this tragedy.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA also commends the first responders, police officers, and firefighters for acting so quickly and courageously. Their heroism should not be forgotten.

About Ahmadiyya Muslim Community:
Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is a dynamic, reformist and fast-growing international revival movement within Islam. Founded in 1889, the Community spans more than 200 countries with membership exceeding tens of millions. Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, established in 1920, is among the first American-Muslim organizations.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the only Islamic organization to believe that the long- awaited messiah has come in the person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) of Qadian, India. Ahmad claimed to be the metaphorical second coming of Jesus of Nazareth and the divine guide, whose advent was foretold by the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad. The Community believes that God sent Ahmad, like Jesus, to end religious wars, condemn bloodshed and reinstitute morality, justice and peace. Ahmad’s advent has brought about an unprecedented era of Islamic revival and moderation. He divested Muslims of fanatical beliefs and practices by vigorously championing Islam’s true and essential teachings.

@Cameris
Thank you for bringing the pronouncement of the Ahmadiyya community to our attention. It is most welcome to hear members of the Islamic faith weigh in against anyone, Muslim or not, who commits such crimes. At the time they issued this release, it was not yet widely known that it was their co-religionists who were responsible, but I trust the emergence of that fact has not altered their respect for America or contempt for the perpetrators.

The Ahmadiyya, it should be noted, are considered heretics by the overwhelming majority of Muslims. Both Sunni and Shia denounce, and in other parts of the world, persecute, the Ahmadiyya. In no sense do they speak for worldwide Islam.

You forgot in your parting shot to accuse me of being an “Islamophobe.” That would have nicely rounded out the obligatory ad hominems to be directed at anyone who tells the truth about the nature and extent of the jihad. And please, for the record, quote specific statements I’ve made which are “bigoted” or “racist”.

By the way, what race is Islam again?

Regards,
Mike
