Please include your full name, daytime phone number and address (for verification of authorship, not publication). We received the following Letter to the Editor from Ahmadiyya Muslim Women's Association member, Hira Aftab, in regards to Valentine's Day:

Valentine’s day is celebrated all over the world expressing love and affection to the loved ones.

In Islam, this is not limited to one day or to a specific event instead it is taught to love, care and respect everyone throughout in our lives.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Women's Association Bradford (West) Chapter remembered the sisters living in the local Shelter in Alliston on this day. They showed them their love by arranging a dinner for these women. The Ahmadiyya community has always expressed deep love and concern for their neighbourhood, and believed that it is through such attributes that they can achieve peace, the objective that their leader, His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmed has repeatedly emphasized:

The world needs peace, love and brotherhood. The world needs an end to wars. Instead of walls of hatred being erected we need peace to prevail and for this to occur people of all faiths must join together.

The staff, residents and volunteers of the shelter appreciated their effort by presenting a thank you card.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community champions “Love for All, Hatred for None” — a peaceful and inclusive motto that extends to all of humanity.

Hira Aftab,
