|Muslim Peace Fellowship
|The Muslim Peace Fellowship (Ansar as-Salam) is a gathering of peace and justice-oriented Muslims of all backgrounds who are dedicated to making the beauty of Islam evident in the world.
Personal example is the only convincing argument for the truth of any religion. Since the particular business of Muslims is to emulate the model of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), who was sent as "a mercy to the worlds," our main concern must be to learn and teach the integrity and kindness that were his chief characteristics. And since the Creator of the Universe asks us, at the beginning of every act, to call to mind His benevolence and compassion, we know that these qualities must be the primary hallmark of any full realization of Islam.
We are consciously devoting ourselves to work towards that realization.
To work against injustice and for peace in ourselves, our families, our communities, and our world.
To encourage a greater commitment to peace on behalf of all Muslims.
To explore and deepen our understanding of Islamic teachings about peace and nonviolence.
To expose the falsehood of the popular stereotype that Islam is a religion that teaches terrorism and violence.
To reach out to people of other religious traditions in an effort to create mutual understanding, tolerance, and respect.
To work together with all people to keep open the Straight Path and to bring about a more just and peaceful community and world.
The Muslim Peace Fellowship is open to Muslims of any culture and tradition who share our beliefs, agree with our purpose, and wish to join us inshaAllahto achieve our goals, guided by the Holy Quran and the teachings of Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).
