Adapted from source news:

ROTTERDAM – Ahmadiyya Muslims youth ask their neighborhoods to join in cleaning the area after new year eve fireworks.

Fireworks are a charm at the turn of the year, the Ahmadi Muslim youth say, yet there are certain not-so-nice aspect to the celebration; such as injuries from accidents, mountains of leftover waste including unused fireworks in the debris.

Many young children search the waste the next day to find unused fireworks and try to light those again and serious accidents happen every year.

If the waste is not properly disposed of, there is lot of litter around and moreover it is bad for our environment.

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said: “Cleanliness is half of faith.”

While half of Rotterdam will still be asleep the next morning after their drinking and intoxication on the New Year eve, a group of Muslims will out early to clean the streets.

They are members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Rotterdam.

The members are already up at the break of the day to come together for the first prayer of the New Year, but the youngsters stay around so they can continue from there to start garbage collection.

The Ahmadiyya Muslims hold the cleanup activity every year because they believe it is their task to contribute to the society.

Their slogan is “Love for All, Hatred for none”
