Yesterday, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Canada conducted a very successful symposium in Roy Thomson Hall, in downtown Toronto, attended by 2000 non-Muslims or n0n-Ahmadi Muslims. The function was a great success, in defense of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, may peace be on him.
The highlight of more than two hours presentation was a speech by Missionary Azhar Haneef, which was interspersed by many video clip presentations, to present the life history of the Prophet Muhammad, in simple yet very elegant terms.
Many could not find a seat and were disappointed as the seating of 2000 was fully reserved, by popular demand, days before the event.
The video of the event is available in the Muslim Times.
The event has also been covered by a local website in Canada, Examiner.com.
Further Reading about the Holy Prophet Muhammad and early Islam:
“My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world’s most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular levels.” [The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History]
“The more one reflects on the history of Muhammad and of early Islam, the more one is amazed at the vastness of his achievements…study of his life may contribute to a fresh appraisal and appreciation of one of the greatest of the sons of Adam.” [Muhammad at Madinah]
“If we could view Muhammad as we do any other important historical figure we would surely consider him to be one of the greatest geniuses the world has known.” [Muhammad – A Biography of the Prophet]
