The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) in partnership with the Canadian Blood Services (CBS) has committed to host blood drives in major cities across Canada. Donating blood forms a key aspect of giving back to the community for AMYA. Unfortunately, it often happens that fanatics spread terror in society in the name of Islam. We as Ahmadi Muslims are deeply affected by such atrocities and our hearts mourn for the victims. Contrary to these atrocities, Allah tala says in the Holy Quran:
“You are the best people, created for the good of mankind; you command what is good and forbid what is bad and believe in God. ” (Holy Quran, Surah 3, verse 111)
It is these beautiful words of the Holy Qur’an that continue to inspire us on a daily basis and encourage us to strive forward in the way of Allah, and serve His creation to the best of our abilities. It is for this very reason that we mobilize thousands of Muslim youth across the country to offer their services and their time to help those in need.
