The Ahmadiyya Muslim Association (AMA), South Australia, is presenting their annual Peace Symposium on Saturday 22nd of August, 2015.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is distinguished by its belief in the Messiah of the present age, in the person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) of Qadian - India, a reformer of the world of religion. The Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam, since its inception in the late 19th century has been striving to get people of different faiths together under the directions of its successive spiritual leaders.

Continuing in the tradition of the Messiah, the present head of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Mirza Masroor Ahmad in one of his recent speeches remarks that "the world needs peace, love and brotherhood. The world needs an end to wars. Instead of hatred being erected we need peace to prevail and for this to occur people of all faiths must join together".

Through this Peace Symposium, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association, South Australia aims to bring together speakers from Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh and Muslim faiths, to share their views on "How can religion contribute to world peace?"

The symposium will run from 2pm to 4pm (followed by refreshments) and entry is FREE.

If you wish to attend, please RSVP by emailing hassan.bhamza@gmail.com or contacting Dr Hassan bin hamza on 0422354210.

A great initiative by Ahmadiyya Muslim Association. More such events should take place with greater frequency and on much larger scale. Peace is what is the need of time.
