Beauties of the Holy Qur’an Displayed

The residents of Auckland were shown the beautiful bounties of the Holy Qur’an in over 45 major languages of the world by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community who successfully held the Inaugural Exhibition of the Holy Qur’an on Saturday, 24th August 2013 at the Glen Innes Community Hall.

The exhibition organizer, Mr. Sabhan Shah, National President of Majlis Ansarullah New Zealand, an auxiliary body of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at NZ Inc., was quite pleased with the outcome with a very good cross section of local residents attending the exhibition for the first time. This is a start of a series of similar exhibitions which will continue throughout the year, including the launch of the fully translated version of the Holy Qur’an in Te Reo Maori in October of this year.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community’s Central Missionary, Mr. Shafiq ur Rehman held a number of short seminars throughout the day educating the visitors about the history of the Holy Book and some of the key messages of peace, compassion, and forgiveness which was revealed to the Holy Prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) for mankind.

“The Holy Qur’an was revealed for all mankind and therefore it becomes our responsibility to ensure that the message is conveyed to all races through all languages. The community’s effort is never ending in having the word of Almighty God translated in many different languages and to ensure that people understand the true Islam”, said Mr. Rehman.

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.
