— Urges them to follow the true doctrine of Islam

Kpor River, Montserrado -  The Speaker of the House of Representatives, J. Fonati Koffa, has commended Ahmadiyya Muslims for their humanitarian efforts around the world, especially in Liberia, and emphasized the importance of following the true doctrine of Islam, promoting peaceful coexistence, and serving humanity.

Koffa also stressed that living together in harmony, in spite of differences in religious beliefs, is an essential part of human life because peaceful coexistence is very necessary.

Speaking at the 20th Jalsa Salana (Annual Conference) of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Liberia on Friday, Speaker Koffa said the basic bedrock of all great religions is faith, hope, and charity, and the greatest of these is charity. The Speaker said serving humanity — to help the human race — is one of the essences of religion.

House Speaker Koffa narrated that Christians and Muslims have some similarities when it comes to sharing with each other, and all Liberians need to follow said path.

“We have come to learn about the great teaching of Islam and the important role it has contributed over the years to the development of mama Liberia through the construction of schools, clinics, and mosques in nine out of the 15 counties in Liberia by the Ahmadiyya Muslims,” Speaker Koffa said in a statement at N. J. Ahmadiyya Junior High School in Kpor River Community, where he served as Guest of Honor and Guest Speaker.

The Speaker said he is a classic example of giving back to society and humanity, especially in both private and public sectors, which has helped him climb the ladders.

The Grand Kru County District #2 Lawmaker noted that research had shown that people who do good for others are always blessed by the Almighty Creator.Speaker Koffa pointed out that Islam and Christianity are the same when it comes to helping. He called on Muslims and Liberians to keep and maintain the hard-earned peace that we are all enjoying, stressing that “Liberia is all we have.”

Speaker Koffa also called upon God, the Merciful Allah, to help all of us to be able to do things that are necessary in our lives and beyond.

The program started with a tour of the facility; the hoisting of the Ahmadiyya Muslim flag, the flags of nine counties, including the national flag of Liberia.

Meanwhile, the Ameer and missionary in charge of Liberia, Maulvi Naveed Ahmad Aadil, said a Muslim should remain faithful to God in all circumstances of life, whether in sorrow or in happiness, in diversity or in prosperity, as well as in temptations or in trial.

The Jalsa Salana (Annual Conference) was attended by more than 1,000 Ahmadiyya Muslims from nine counties.
