“Muhammad: Messenger of Peace” event to be held in Washington DC

As part of a nationwide campaign launched this month Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is inviting members of the public to come and learn more about the Holy Prophet of Islam Muhammad SAW. All across the USA over 70 chapters of the community are taking part in this first ever nationwide “Muhammad Messenger of Peace” campaign.

The campaign aims to afford all Americans the opportunity to understand Prophet Muhammad’s views on human rights, women’s rights, war and peace, and interfaith harmony in a respectful and collegial environment. The new campaign is a civilized response to the ongoing mockery and baseless propaganda against the Prophet of Islam.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA’s 73 chapters around the country will host public events, open to all. Everyone in attendance will receive complimentary biographies of Prophet Muhammad’s life and soft copies of the Holy Qur’an with English translation.

With this campaign, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA has launched MuhammadFactCheck.org to provide accurate and detailed rebuttals to dozens of baseless allegations against Prophet Muhammad.

“Education and understanding are the bridges upon which Islam was founded,” said Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, National Vice President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA,

“and it is only with education and understanding that we can all live together peacefully and respectfully. This is what this campaign is all about.”

All Americans are invited to attend and ask any questions about Muhammad, Islam and the Qur’an. The Messenger of Peace event in Washington, DC will be held at the Fazl Mosque on Saturday March 30, 2013. Guests can reserve their place by visiting http://www.muslimsforpeace.org/events/wdc/.
