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)

Muslims for Peace message broadcast to millions of people in Times Square

Anyone passing through Times Square in New York City will see that Muslims stand for love, loyalty to America and peace. Since Monday Jan 17 2011 the CBS Spectacular Electronic Billboard on 42nd Street between 7th Ave. and 8th Ave. started broadcasting The Messiah of Peace message every hour at 41 minutes past the hour from 6 AM to midnight EST. This will continue till March 31st 2011. This advertisement is the latest component of a nationwide Muslims for Peace campaign, sponsored by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, the oldest Muslim organization in the United States.
The Muslims for Peace campaign was launched in New York City after the Times Square terrorism attempt in May. Since then, we have delivered our message of peace on New York city transit buses, on billboards around the country, and most importantly, by handing out more than 500,000 peace brochures and engaging in person with our neighbors around the nation.
