Ahmadiya Community of Calgary Celebrated the Life of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)867 views
Ahmadiya movement of Islam Canada celebrated the birth and life of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH at their newly built and state of the art Mosque Bait Ul Noor, this Mosque happens to be the biggest mosque in Canada. It has the most beautiful structure and is equipped with modern sound system and everything else required to be in the mosque. I have to say that this is the most organized function I have ever attended regarding the birth of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
The moment guests enter the parking lot there are welcomed by an army of volunteers directing you in to specially allotted spots for guests only. Once you have parked your car another Khidmat gaar would accompany you to your seat. It was very humbling experience to attend such an organized event, the speakers consisted of Sunni and Shias and of course Ahamdis. The programme was held in the main prayer areas where chairs were set up to accommodate non-Muslim guests and politicians.
Politicians that were present: Alberta PC Party Leader Hon, Rick McIver, Hon Ifran Sabir from NDP, Dr. David Sawn from Leader of Alberta Liberal Party, Former MP Calgary N.E, Mr.Devinder Shory, and Wild Rose party representative Happy Mann. Calgary Greenway Bi election candidates: Mr.Prabh Gill for PC Party, Ms. Roop Rai for NDP, Mr. Khalil Karbani for Alberta Liberal Party.
Program was chaired by Mr. Malik Lall, who is the President of Ahmadiya moment in Islam of Canada. Speakers were former MLA Mr. Moe (Mohammad Amery), Babul Hawaij (Shia Sect of Islam) Syed Tauqir Zaidi, and also a representative from Muslim Council of Calgary. This was a very pleasant experience where a person could understand a speaker and was done with very soft speaking manners. Usually when I attend a Eid al Milad Un Nabi most of the time the speakers are bashing and shouting about other sects of Islam, but here the speakers only spoke on the character of our beloved Prophet (PBUH) and what lessons we can learn from the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
After the silent prayers(dua), guests were directed to dining hall where more volunteers waited and accompanied you to your table. Every minute someone from the executive board would approach your table and ask if your need anything else. This was a much pleasant experience and I wish others can learn a thing or two from this organization when holding these kinds of religious meetings and having the audience feel something to be proud of being Muslims.
