The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is a dynamic, fast growing international revival movement within Islam. Founded in 1889, it spans over 200 countries with membership exceeding tens of millions. The group will be holding an information display throughout the month of June in the Lithgow Library.

Ahmadi Muslims all over the world are engaged in efforts to distribute millions of ‘Peace’ leaflets to Muslims and non-Muslims alike, host interfaith dialogue and peace symposiums, and present exhibitions of The Holy Qur’an, to present its true and noble message. These campaigns have received worldwide media coverage and demonstrate that Islam advocates peace, loyalty to one’s country of residence and service to humanity.

The display throughout June in the Lithgow Library aims to provide residents with more information on the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and the work that they do. As part of the display a model of the Baitul Huda Mosque (House of Guidance) in Sydney will be in the foyer cabinet.

“This is an opportunity for Lithgow residents to become more aware of the Islamic faith and gain an insight into their commitment to bringing peace to the world,” said Mayor Stephen Lesslie.

Information will be on display throughout June in the Lithgow Library and members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community will be available for questions in the Library after school hours throughout the month.  For more information contact the Lithgow Library on 63529100.
