by Ayesha Noor Follow Ayesha on Twitter @FriendlyMuslim Al Qaida has committed yet another atrocity today – against Islam and against humanity. In their twisted minds they have avenged Prophet Muhammad by killing 12 civilians in Paris. In actuality, they are the ones who have failed Prophet Muhammad on multiple levels. The Quran prescribed two fundamental duties for every Muslim i.e. service to God and service to humanity. Throughout his life Prophet Muhammad championed these two services and reached them… Read more

By Imam Rizwan Khan Follow Imam Rizwan Khan on Twitter @ImamRizwanKhan Atheists often mock those who believe in the existence of God, saying that such an absurdity is contrary to common sense.  They say that though the existence of God cannot be conclusively disproven, neither can the existence of Santa Claus, the tooth fairy, or unicorns.  Those who are critical of theism often object on principle, presenting their ideas as diametrically opposed to the idea of belief in the unseen.  However,… Read more

By Saima G. Sheikh Follow Saima on Twitter @SaimaGSheikh I was speaking with someone the other day about the Peshawar attacks and how heartbreaking it was for me to learn of the senseless and brutal murder of so many innocent children.

I explained to them that members of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community do not participate in street protests but we pray to… Read more

By Qasim Rashid Today in Pakistan at least 132 sets of parents will remember this Jummah as their first Jummah without their precious child. This Jummah they will be forced to remember the crushing weight of small coffins. I left Peshawar in the 1980s, not long after Dictator Zia implemented death for blasphemy, death for apostasy, and anti-Ahmadi laws. I left as a schoolboy, with wide eyes and an open heart. And when I returned to Pakistan in the mid… Read more

by Ayesha Noor The Peshawar I left 12 years ago is not the Peshawar I saw on television yesterday. The brutal killing of Army Public School’s children is beyond a national tragedy. In my eyes, ‘tragedy’ is an understatement, almost a deceitful statement for such a horrible incident. Those kids’ heart–breaking pictures, their tears, their broken smiles and their resilience haunted me all day and night. My people’s continued vulnerability before extremism felt like something more than mere tragedy. I… Read more
