Ahmadiyya Muslim Youths’ New Year Clean-up Initiative

08 January 2014

Media Release – For Immediate Release

Ahmadiyya Muslim Youths’ New Year Clean-up Initiative

The residents of Auckland were shown the way by a group of Ahmadiyya Muslim Youths for the first day of 2014 by keeping Auckland parks clean and beautiful.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community’s Auxiliary Youth division known as Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya New Zealand organized a New Year’s Day clean-up of four parks in Auckland.

The Community took heed of their worldwide Spiritual Leader; Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad’s advice during his recent visit to New Zealand to organize a regular New Year’s clean up initiative in New Zealand.

The Community’s National President, Mr. Mohammed Iqbal present with the group said, “This is just a small step towards ensuring that we all take responsibility of keeping our surroundings and country clean and beautiful. The practice we have initiated was also a regular practice of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), who would pick up and dispose of any litter he came across during his walks”.

In appreciation of this initiative, the Auckland Council happily supplied the youths with gloves, litter grabbers, brooms and bin bags to make it all possible. Patrons of the parks were very supportive of the initiatives as a number of them applauded the efforts of the group and hoped to be part of the initiative in the near future. One senior member of public went on to say that the effort was exemplary and they wished other young people would follow suit.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is a dynamic, fast-growing international revival movement within Islam. Founded in 1889 by Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) in Punjab, India, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community spans 200 countries with membership exceeding tens of millions.
