PM Justin Trudeau met with the Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad the supreme religious leader, the Caliph, of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community
Ahmadiyya is a religious movement which was founded in Punjab during the British rule around the end of the 19th century. It was established out of the teachings and life of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad who was supposed to be the Mahdi and Messiah that the Muslims were waiting for. Mainstream Muslim groups say Ahmadiyya doesn’t represent Islam though and consider its believers to be apostates.
In a sermon, one Friday back in 2004, this Caliph, had spoken on this issue.
There was a book on Marital rights in Isla written by Sheikh Mubarak Ahmad which provides a lot of practical guidance for married couples. In Islam, wife beating is considered a sort of education.
The Islamic literature is quite prevalent in Islamic bookstores and is being distributed freely in Canada through prominent Imams who represent the Muslim community. They provide quite an interesting perspective on the rights of a woman in the eyes of Islam.
MSA York had held their annual campus event for Islam Awareness with the title, “what does the Quran say?”
The female students of York MSA with niqab and hijab were manning the info booths at York University’s central square. They were handing out books to students on the common misconceptions about women in Islam.
In a lecture which was at Montreal’s Al-Rawdah Mosque, the Imam Houssein Amer had mocked the whole idea of marital rape and called it a Western idea. He explained all of the differences between Islam and the West. There actually are quite a few differences between the two if you look at his from his point of view.
