It was these questions that brought together the gathering at Mubarak Mosque in Chantilly, Virginia, that early February. The Women’s Auxiliary of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community had organized a discussion event in which these questions were to be discussed. Three speakers had been set up to give their respective views, including Chairwoman Sharon Bulova. The event began with the recitation of the Holy Quran with translation, after which Mubarika Shah, a prominent member of the Mubarak Mosque, gave a short introduction about the background of the Ahmadiyya Community, going into who the Ahmadi Muslims are. She introduced each of the speakers as their turn came to address the audience, beginning with Mary Beth Style, representing St. Timothy Catholic Church. Akavish Khan was to speak on behalf of the Ahmadiyya Muslims, and Chairwoman Sharon Bulova was the final guest to address the gathering. Each expounded on the issue of world crisis and the pathway to peace, drawing from personal experiences and values. At the end some guests were invited to comment, like Mrs. Amielia Mitchell, Principal of Stone Middle School. She elaborated on the benefits of inculcating peace within our homes and schools, and uniting together to be a better people. She also mentioned the book, ‘World Crisis and the Pathway to Peace,’ which had been gifted to her earlier. It was this book, a compilation of speeches by the spiritual head of the Ahamdiyya Muslim Community, that this interfaith gathering was based on. To top off the event the guests got to enjoy the Ahmadiyya exhibition while they indulged on refreshments prepared especially. The event generally received good reactions from all, with attendance numbering to about ninety people.

The book, ‘World Crisis and the Pathway to Peace,’ can be obtained through the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, or you can read it online by clicking here.
