We share in our country’s pride and joy at Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. It is our heartfelt prayer that may God continue to protect the Queen and we look forward to the festivities of the Jubilee weekend and to make those as inclusive as possible.As Muslims, we are duty bound to serve Queen and country and we regard this as an important part of our religion as we were taught by Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that loyalty to one’s country is a part of faith.
The message of goodwill follows the example of the founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad who sent a congratulatory message to Her Majesty Queen Victoria on her Diamond Jubilee 115 years ago in 1897.
His Holiness Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the present spiritual leader of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim community, said:“May our congratulations filled with happiness and gratitude to our compassionate Queen be conveyed. And may the honourable Queen always be kept happy and content.“O Powerful and Noble God. Through your Grace and Blessings keep our honoured Queen forever happy in the same way that we are living happily under her benevolence and kindness; and be kind and loving to her in the same way that we are living in peace and prosperity under her generous and righteous rule.“These are sentiments of gratitude that are held by every Ahmadi Muslim who is a British citizen.”
We are one of Britain’s oldest Islamic communities, here in UK since 1913 and have established the first mosque in London. We are pleased to have sponsored 200 buses in London congratulating Her Majesty The Queen on her Diamond Jubilee.
One of the fund raising activities arranged this year in honour of Her Majesty was the Charity Challenge held at Tower of London.
