Sharing of Faith and Gifts

The National President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Association Australia, Imam Inamul Haq Kauser, educated young adults of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Sydney on the importance of the Mosque as a sacred place of worship.

A well-known missionary of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association, Imam Kauser has served for more than forty years including in Pakistan and over thirty years in the United States.  Much of Imam Kauser’s work is devoted to building bridges between religious organisations and spreading the message of peace, love and harmony.  He recounted, with appreciation, a time when one of their Mosques burned down and their community met in a church building of The Church of Jesus Christ for six years. 


Imam Ahmad Nadeem, a religious Minister currently based in Canberra, also spoke to the young adults on the Muslim faith and beliefs.  The Ahmadiyya Muslim Association presented Church President Russell M. Nelson with a copy of the Quran when President Nelson visited Sydney in May of this year.  As an expression of thanks, both Imams were presented with a Book of Mormon Replica 1830 Edition.

Mr. Mirza Sharif, National Public Relations of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association, commented that his colleagues “had a wonderful time interacting” with the young people of the church and promptly invited the young people of both faiths to have joint activities.

Young adults in attendance prepared gifts of stationery and toys that were presented to Your Aged Care at the end of the evening.  The gifts will be given to children, including refugees, at Christmas.
