This week we celebrate the anniversary of the birth of Bahá’u’lláh (12th November 1817) and learn about the Bahai faith. We also consider the message of peace and goodwill to all that the Ahmadiyya Muslim community highlight as the heart of  Islamic teachings.

The Ahmadiyya Community is at the forefront of dispelling misinterpretations of Islam and nurturing deeper relations between all religions.
