The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community launches 'Muslims for Life,' a nationwide campaign to honor the victims of 9/11 on its 10th anniversary and uphold the message that Islam values the sanctity of life. During the month of September, they will hold blood drives at all their mosques and prayer centers in the United States, and in collaboration with other community organizations. Their goal is to collect 10,000 units of blood—which can help save 30,000 lives—during the month.
Last year, the Ahmadiyya community conducted a 'Muslims for Peace' campaign in the United States and the United Kingdom. Its purpose: To show that Muslims stand for peace. Believers distributed fliers door to door and approached people in public spaces to spread their message. That's pretty gutsy, given some of the blatant anti-Muslim rhetoric that surfaces when mosques are opposed in some communities. Source: AJC .
