Ahmadiyyah World Leader His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, has encouraged his followers to be considerate and helpful to their fellow human beings.
“According to the teachings of the Holy Qur’an, the love that a Muslim must adopt for humanity should be such that he or she should become restless upon seeing any other person in discomfort. A true Muslim must always be watchful of the sentiments of others and must sacrifice his own comfort for the sake of the comfort of his fellow beings”, the Ahmadiyyah leader said. He was addressing attendees to the 49 Annual World Conference (Jalsa Salana) for Ahmadiyyah Muslims in London, England.
His Holiness also said that the wider society has been misled as to the true teachings of of Islam and that people who come to know of what the Ahmadiyyah Muslims stand for, their views and perceptions change.
“It is of great regret that some Muslims have misconstrued the true teachings of Islam to such an extent that the world has become fearful of the beautiful and peaceful teachings of Islam. …When people are presented with the true teachings of Islam by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, they are surprised. Many have said to me personally that if what you present are the true teachings of Islam, then the world will gladly once again turn towards religion and towards Islam”, he continued.
