The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in New Zealand will further enhance its quest to serve New Zealanders as part of their Silver Jubilee thanksgiving function to mark 25 years of progress the community has made thus far in New Zealand (NZ).

The community says it has been possible only through the Help and Will of Allah.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at New Zealand Inc. was established in March 1987 and the registration process completed as an incorporated society on 5 April 1988.

As part of the thanksgiving celebration, the community will commence on a 12-month plan of key events across New Zealand, ranging from ‘Feed the Poor Day’, to spreading peace pamphlets to at least 25 percent of New Zealanders, completion and launch of the Holy Qur’an translated in Te Reo Maori and holding a Peace Conference in Auckland.

Mohammed Iqbal, the National President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, said that the aim of the silver jubilee thanksgiving celebrations is to recognise and remember the numerous blessings and successes bestowed upon our Jama’at through the Mercy and Will of Almighty Allah.

“The year long programme provides a great source of inspiration and motivation to come together as one in all humbleness to celebrate the achievements of our community,” said Mr. Iqbal. “This milestone is a point in time to reflect on the past and prepare for the future.”

“It is a time to recognise and celebrate collectively a set of activities that’s marks our 25 years of existence in New Zealand with complete freedom and safety” added Mr. Iqbal.

The community’s Central Missionary, Mr. Shafiq ur Rehman says Ahmadiyyat in New Zealand fulfills the God’s promise to the Promised Messiah, the founder of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, in the revelation sating, “I shall cause thy message to reach the corners of the earth”.

“One of the main objectives of the Silver Jubilee thanksgiving celebrations is to arrange spiritual programmes in thankfulness to Allah’s divine favours on our members for the growth,” missionary Rehman said.

The community has actively contributed to New Zealanders in time of need by contributing generously to the families of the victims of the Pike River mines disaster, by sending working parties to help clean up the liquefaction in the streets of Christchurch following the earthquake and giving financial support towards Christchurch earthquake appeal, by working with the NZ Immigration services at the refugee centre to assist with migrant resettlement programme, organising charity walk to raise funds for the Royal NZ Foundation of the Blind, arranging blood donation to the NZ blood bank and assisting in other relief efforts across the pacific.

“Through Allah’s blessing, our community today consists of a wide range of ethnicity; from New Zealanders, Maoris, to migrants from all parts of Indian Sub-continent” said Mr. Iqbal.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is a religious organisation, international in its scope. It has branches in over 193 countries in Africa, America, Asia, Australasia, and Europe with worldwide membership exceeding tens of millions.
