“His family said he was having trouble making ends meet. It sounds like a lonely guy story to me. How sad, imagining himself as an Al Qaeda agent.
Ahmadi-Muslims started a Muslims for Life campaign two years ago, because we wish America well, hope to help our neighbors in need and are willing to work hard to let Americans know that's the true Islam.
Then, along comes this guy... who was entrapped, but if you have a good intention, the truth is that you can't be entrapped.
Ahmadi-Muslims want to serve mankind--not annihilate it.”
“Over the Christmas holiday, we vacationed in Tennessee in the Smoky Mountains where we saw more Muslims than we see all year. Clearly, Muslims had the time and money to enjoy their vacation time surveying the beautiful U.S. of A., eating out, skating and hiking.”
“I love it. This is like a word weaving of The Word of God. My favorite is Ayatul Kursi.
We were just thinking of creating an Islamic Exhibition in Atlanta, inspired by the Huffington Post writer who said, Where is the Islamic art? So I started taking photos of the Islamic symbols in my home. I passed on the idea to the sisters at the mosque and it received a very positive response.
One lady has already sold a calligraphy of "La illa hi lila"/"There is One God and only One God" for $80. Calligraphers, if they are good, can do very well... This looks like writing and weaving combined with an added touch of sculpture. It is so utterly feminine that it brings tears to my eyes.
Meg, would you like to come to Atlanta in September for our Exhibition?”

“Meg's a friend of mine; she's an awesome person (I have no idea what her schedule is; I haven't talked with her in a while.)”
“Thank you to the one million ladies who will don the hijab.
I felt sickened and helpless when Mrs. Alawadi was murdered. I could only pray for her and still did not feel satisfied. I didn't have the heart to tell my children what happened to her, because then they would feel afraid for me...
I felt so alone, but this movement is a beautiful one. It makes me feel I have a million sisters. May God bless you in this world and the next for this gesture of compassion. Ameen”

“Will you take off your hijab when it is shown that a Muslim murdered her for trying to leave her oppressive marriage (brainwashed into at 15 I might add) and move to Texas as her relatives are telling the police now?”
“Here is the Muslim Television Ahmadiyyat documentary of the Shroud of Turin. The caliph, Mirza Masroor Ahmad visits Turin. The hosts were very interested in meeting the caliph. It was very cordial on both sides:
They didn't find "fragrant resins and oils," but a tincture used for healing wounds. It may have lead the church to reject the Shroud as the one belonging to Jesus. But look a the light and beatific countenance. This is a man steeped in his spirituality. May Allah be pleased with him and elevate his status.”
“The Reverend sings a beautiful Tune of hope to these children. He is an inspiring man of faith. We need more men like him. May Allah bless and rewards your good deeds in this world and the next. Ameen.”
Ahmadi-Muslims believe the shroud of Turin is real. The question you have to ask yourself is why does the shroud have healing ointments on it? Do you put healing ointments on a dead body?”

“It was not uncommon to anoint the bodies of the dead with oils and unguents. The women had started to prepare the body of Jesus, and then had to stop, because it was sundown of the Jewish Sabbath. They returned early Sunday morning, to finish dressing the body, only to find that the tomb was opened, and Jesus was no longer in it. Even the ancient Egyptians, who were the foremost embalmers of their time , anointed the bodies of the dead with fragarent resins and oils.”
“In the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, we line up with everyone to pray. Standing shoulder to shoulder eliminates "shaitan" who gets between us when we distance ourselves from one another. The Holy Quran speaks of a people who feel a warm affection for each other. That describes our community. We are a global community: www.mta.tv If you check out www.alislam.org, you might be able to locate the mosque closest to you.
“I like a cautious president. Why tell you what he is going to do, when he does not have all the facts? He is not privy to all the information available to the president. And then...if he gets in...the press will forever remind him of what he said he would do.”

“That's not the case here. He's waiting to see how the wind blows, before he tells us what he thinks this week. Next week, he'll have a different opinion.”

“How do you feel about Romney wanting to attack Iran without any evidence at all?
Study says: "University of Windsor law professor Judy Macfarlane for the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, refutes critics' claims that American Muslims want to impose Shariah, or Islamic law."”

“Just went back home two years ago. Voila.. no pork at my favourite restaurant?
You see .. before you know it, s!@#t happens.”
“I don't think that CAIR would refuse to work with Ahmadis in America. Since we believe the Promised Messiah is the Second Coming, and they don't it's like we accepted the next prophet. It's more than emphasis.
Christianity has clouded what prophethood is because of the emphasis on Jesus, peace be upon him. If everyone understood that they were all prophets, it wouldn't be so hard to accept the next one.
We are not saying that Jesus, pbuh, is more powerful than Muhamed, pbuh, When God sends the next messenger, it is incumbent on the people to accept him. Jesus was the savior in his time. Muhammad was the savior in his time and the Promised Messiah is the savior of this time. But, since the Promised Messiah (Second Coming of Jesus) is a Muslim, the Christians need to become Muslims.”
