City of Moose Jaw

Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) of Canada will be in Moose Jaw and communities across Canada, from Friday to June 19, praying for the wellbeing of all residents within those communities.

“If you want to pray for someone and you want that prayer to be effective, then pray for 40 days,” AMYA national executive director Rizwan Rabbani said, adding representatives from the Regina chapter of the Muslim organization would be in Moose Jaw on Sunday as part of this prayer journey.

During the 40-day prayer event, AMYA representatives would be in a different community each day. Rabbani said the participants would conduct a traditional Muslim fasting during the day (no food from sunrise to sunset), and everyone would awake at 3:45 a.m. to conduct a prayer for the community.

Then, around 10 a.m., those AMYA members will start going door-to-door, canvassing neighbourhoods, speaking with residents and handing out literature aimed at spreading a message of peace, promoting religious harmony and educating Canadians about Islam.

    I wonder why Ahmadiya used the word muslim in their name. Others get confused to think that they are muslims.

    Abdul Karim you can speak for yourself. As ahmadi Muslims, we believe it is not for us to decide who is Muslim and who is not. Whoever calls himself a muslim is a Muslim to us. The quality of their faith is between them and God. And By the Grace of Allah all ahmadis are muslims based on the Definition of a muslim mentioned in the Quran and ahadees. Why can't for once: you start appreciating somebody good work. Keep it up AMYA....

    I truly believe all people have the right to practice their own religion. The Ahmadiyya community are not Muslim and they do not believe that mainstream Muslims are muslim because they reject Mirza Ghulam (their prophet) as a prophet.
