Islam stands for peace. Ahmadiyya Muslim community presents the real picture of Islam.

The true victory of Islam, as is evident from the word 'Islam' (submission) itself, lies in our complete surrendering our selves to God and freeing ourselves of our egos and our passions. No idol, whether it is the idol of our desires, our our intentions, or the idol of creature worship, should stand in our way, and we should submit ourselves entirely to the will of God. After reaching this state of Fana (self-annihilation), we will attain baqa (the life of eternity) which will give our eyes a new light, our minds a new passion; and we will become a wholly new being and the same Eternal God will become for us a new God. This is the true victory, and one aspect of it is Divine ammunion.(the green announcement p. 28)

A beautiful incident

   " Those who spend in prosperity and- in adversity, and those who suppress anger and pardon men; Allah loves those who do good." (Al-e-'Imran, 3:135)

  It was by virtue of this verse that a slave of Hazrat Imam husain (ra), won his freedom. it is said that the slave erroneously dropped something hot (it could have been water) on Hazrat Husain(ra).He looked at him angrily. the slave was intelligent and knew the Holly Qur'an as well. he promptly quoted the part of the verse about the suppression of anger.
   "...and those who suppress there anger..."
Hazrat Husain(ra) said, 'you are right; I suppress my anger.' Now the servant though the anger had been brought under control, it would still remain in his heart. It was possible that he would be chastised for some other mistake later. so he quoted the second part of the verse:
  "...and pardon men..."
 Hazrat Husain said, 'I have forgiven you.' the slave's knowledge and promptness gave him immediate benefits. Now he quoted the third part of the verse:
  "...Allah loves those who do good."
 Hazrat Husain responded, 'I hereby grant you freedom.' In those days, slaves use to be bought. I was not possible to gain one's freedom so easily. The slave's quick-wittedness and knowledge got him freedom from his master who was God-fearing. This is the teaching of Islam.
