The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA will host its 62nd Annual Convention from Friday July 16th through Sunday July 18th at the Dulles Expo Center in, Chantilly, VA. Over 5,000 delegates will attend from across America and overseas and to celebrate 90 years of preaching Islam in America.

Among the speeches delivered over the 3-day convention is a key-note address emphasizing that it is mandatory for Muslims to obey the government of the country in which they reside. Various civic, state, federal and international dignitaries will attend the session.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the oldest and longest running American-Islamic organization. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the sole international Islamic organization to fully endorse a separation of church and state, to condemn terrorism in word and action, to fully express loyalty to the country in which we reside, and advocate for women's rights. The members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community are amongst the most highly educated and progressive people in the world.

We invite all of our fellow Americans to attend the convention and openly discuss any issue of relevance to them.

    Does the Koran mention the famous Alexander the Great? The Catholic Christian bible does in First Maccabees 1:1-8.

    Vince:

    Very interesting question. I think your general question is about prophecies in the Muslim scripture (obviously, we can't dictate to God what to put in His book. Conversely, there may be a prophecy in the Quran and not in the Bible). Yes there are prophecies in Quran and other sources that have been fulfilled and continue to be fulfilled. Prophecies provide an insight into a scripture's divine origin. see www.alislam.org/library/books/revelation/part_6_section_1.html. As Muslims we believe that God continues to vouchsafe his beloved servants with revelation and knowledge of the unseen.

    My personal interest however, is in a scripture's alignment with science and whether it encourages rational dialogue and pursuit of knowledge and promotes scientific discovery.

    Thanks for asking...
