Students and community members looked at Jesus’ life according to Islam at Saving the Savior: Jesus in Islam on Feb. 25, the first installment in a series of lectures sponsored by UW Oshkosh’s Interfaith Dialogue and Education Alliance.
Guest speakers Harris Zafar, author of “Demystifying Islam: Tackling the Tough Questions,” and Imam Faran Rabbani are members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, a community whose beliefs about Jesus slightly differ from that of mainstream Islam.
Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community are waging what they call an awareness campaign against extremism and radicalization in an effort to show that radical jihadists are far removed from the true teachings of Islam.
An alarming number of foreign fighters, including Americans, are now traveling to the Middle East to join the ranks of the Islamic State commonly called ISIS. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Association Organization at UT organized an event called "Stop The CrISIS." It's an international campaign to counter efforts by ISIS to recruit young Muslims.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Student Association at Texas A&M invited the public to their "Stop the Crisis" event to talk about ISIS, youth radicalization and to promote what they call "true teachings" of Islam.
Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA), an auxiliary of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, categorically condemns today’s unconscionable shooting in Copenhagen and offers its prayers and support for the citizens of Denmark and all peace-loving people around the world.
