Truth about National Assembly of Pakistan 1974. our beloved hazur delivered friday sermon on 17th may 1985
MY AIM AND THE DESIRED OBJECTIVE IS TO SERVE MANKIND! (The Promised Messiah as)
“It is not righteousness that you turn your faces to the East or the West, but truly righteous is he who believes in Allah and the Last Day and the angels and the Book and the Prophets, and spends his money for love of Him, on the kindred and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer and those who ask for charity, and for ransoming the captives.” (The Holy Quran 2:178)
Humanity First is a charitable organisation working under the fold of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat. Humanity First was founded by Hadhrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad(rah) Khalifatul Masih IV in 1994. It was conceived with the back drop of hunger crisis in Somalia in 1992 and the war in Bosnia. This was the time when the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat tried to help the victims of these crises, but faced difficulties in serving them directly because of being a religious organization.
We were forced to hand over the food and supplies to other agencies working in those areas at the time. Hadhur was deeply touched by the situation. He perceived the need and opportunity for the Jamaat to establish an independent charitable organization to serve mankind, without any distinction of faith, race, or ethnicity. Humanity First was conceived and formally established as a result of this vision. Hadhur further advised the organizational leads that Humanity First should not limit itself to engaging Ahmadis alone, but be inclusive of other noble souls as well.
Today, Humanity First is registered in 33 countries across 6 continents, and has been working on human development projects and responding to disasters since 1995. These have included the earthquakes in Turkey, Pakistan, Japan and Iran, floods in Africa and Latin America, storms and tsunamis in the USA, Indonesia and Bangladesh, and conflicts in Eastern Europe. Over 93% of donated funds are spent directly on aid projects. With the majority of our labour including skilled engineers and clinicians being volunteers along with preferential rates for materials benefiting from global sourcing, Humanity First is often able to deliver a value of aid many times the value of donations provided.

On the fateful day of September 11, 2001, a black day, a day that will forever live in infamy and notoriety, nineteen hate-mongering terrorists hijacked 4 commercial jets. They not only hijacked the planes with the passengers, but also hijacked peace and tranquility of many and the religion of Islam, which stands for peace and submission to the will of One God. They slammed the planes into the World Trade Center and the pentagon killing more than 3000 innocent lives. Their hijacking of the religion of Islam, riding on the air-waves of the national and world media has continued to slam and smash the consciousness of all humans, raising a fundamental question, Is Islam a peaceful religion or does it promote violence? This is the question! This is the question, with a capital Q!
This is a fundamental issue that every thinking person has to resolve for himself or herself to maintain his or her sanity and integrity. If we as Americans fail to assign legitimate blame we will be guilty of naivety and other major consequences will follow. On the other hand if we assign a false guilt we will be stereotyping and blaming 1.5 billion Muslims and Islam for something they have do not stand for. A grave error that will have major social, political, moral and spiritual ramifications. I share almost all the sentiments that have been expressed here today, but my specific job is to answer the fundamental question that I have raised. Once again I want to second all the sentiments that have been expressed about 9/11 and everything that has been said to honor the victims of 9/11. Having said that I want to move to the main theme of my speech which is to discuss Islamic teachings of Jihad, which is about self purification and defensive war and to vindicate Islam from the terrorism perpetrated on 9/11. Now, let me show you Islamic teachings about honoring each and every human life and declaring it sacred. The Holy Quran equates killing of one innocent life with killing of all mankind or creating a holocaust. In this way Islam puts an absolute value on each and every human life, which cannot be sacrificed for one’s political goals.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta extended its message of peace and loyalty to all the world and to Maltese people and distributed flyers with the message of “Loyalty, Freedom, Respect, Equality, Peace” on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11.
Laiq Ahmed Atif, the president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta said that we want to extend our message of peace towards all our Maltese brothers and sisters, because there can not be a better gift than peace at this time.
