Since the tragic 9/11 terrorist attacks that stripped the sacred lives of too many Americans, we Muslims have unfortunately been the target of blame and persecution. Yet, amid both injustices, our Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, led by the peaceful Khalifa of Islam, chose to respond by the teachings of Holy Quran which encourages working together in goodness and righteousness.

With the help of American Res Cross, we’ve been investing our blood and the blood of our families and neighbors to save the precious lives of our compatriots and in loving memory of the innocent 9/11 victims. In a jihad known as Muslims for Life, thus far, year after year, we’ve collected enough blood to rescue over 100,000 lives!

Delivering even one life in the estimation of the Holy Quran is akin to saving the whole of mankind. What more motivation do you need, then, to join our collaborative blood drive in the House of Peace Mosque in Meriden, 410 Main Street, on Sunday, Sept. 4, from 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM?

Sign up at to ensure you helped save humanity.

This is how True Islam is winning back the hearts of others through partnership, unbiased service, dignified dialogue, and prayer.
