American Muslims gather to erase extremism
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, the nationâ€™s largest and Â oldest Muslim organization, will host the 68th annual 3-day conference to spiritually rejuvenate Muslim Americans, young and old. Â As the longest running American Muslim conference, it aims to reach into Islamâ€™s fundamentals as practiced by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to teach how to be a model Muslim in todayâ€™s world.
The recent attacks in San Bernardino, Orlando, Istanbul, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, and Iraq show that much of the world is in the dark about Islamâ€™s true teachings. Distorted teachings by extremists have promoted fear and Islamophobia worldwide. Â In response, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has spearheaded a campaign entitled â€œTrue Islam and the Extremistsâ€ to educate the masses on Islamâ€™s true teachings. Â Its aim is to enhance the countryâ€™s national security through a proven model that saves people from the path of extremism.
â€œWe are at a critical point in a conflict-ridden world.â€ said Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, National Vice President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA. â€œThe world cries for a solution and we are here to offer that solution through dialogue, education, and community.â€
The conference will be held at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA from July 29- July 31st. Â Thousands of American Muslims from across the country are expected in attendance to participate in the conference, which is also open to the public.
