United Against Extremism Solidarity Event

baitul futuh mosque

Muslims will converge on Britain’s biggest mosque complex, in south London, following the terrible attacks in Paris last week. A special remembrance service is being held today where members of the congregation will be joined by  political, community and religious leaders. Thousands of worshippers are expected at Friday prayers.

It’s going to be an emotional day for the congregation as it’s the first Friday prayers since the tragic events in Paris.The congregation will have a special service of prayers, brief remarks by key guests  as well as a minute’s silence in memory of those who lost their lives.

It is a good opportunity to show solidarity with communities in London and Paris and will send a clear message that terrorism will only serve to unite us even more.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community UK has repeatedly condemned all acts of extremism. Following the Paris attacks last week the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Caliph, His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, speaking from London said: “On behalf of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community worldwide, I express my heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the French nation, its people and government following the heinous terrorist attacks that have taken place in Paris. This brutal and inhumane attack can only be condemned in the strongest possible terms.”
