Australian Flags | National Anthem | Thanksgiving Speeches | Complementary Dinner | Networking
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Canberra invites you to their annual Australia Day celebrations on Friday 26th January at Gungahlin Lakes Golf and Community Club where people can come together, united in allegiance to Australia.
Members of the Community will come together to pay respect to and hoist the Australian flag followed by national anthem. Short thanksgiving speeches by community members and invited dignitaries will take place as they share their thoughts on what it means to be an Australian.
The local Imam of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Australia, Imam Ahmed Nadeem said:
“We, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, always pray for the progress and development of our homeland, Australia. As per our traditions we will celebrate Australia Day in all Mosques across Australia. We stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our nation, government and people because our religion teaches us that love of country of residence is part of faith.”
This day holds special significance for the Community; the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mosques across the country will begin the day offering prayers for the prosperity of Australia. Members of the community will also participate in community celebrations throughout the day.
The Worldwide Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Caliph, His Holiness Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad guides Community members in this regard:
“True loyalty requires a relationship built on sincerity and integrity… it is essential for a citizen of any country to establish a relationship of genuine loyalty and faithfulness to his nation. It does not matter whether he is a born citizen, or whether he gains citizenship later in life..."
