Peace and love

“BLESSED are the peacemakers; for they shall be called the children of God.
“Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness; for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Mathew 5:9-10) Being an Ahmadi Muslim, I believe that Jesus (peace be upon him ) was a prophet of God who was a peacemaker.
His message was entirely based on peace and love. The task assigned to Jesus was to transform the deviated people of his time into kind and peace loving people again and bring them back to God.
As is the case of every prophet of God, Jesus was opposed in his mission. People tried to put an end to his message, but in spite of all this, he continued his mission of peace.
His main teachings to his disciples were to acquire their earning lawfully and honestly, which should be spent in the service of the needy and the poor. He taught them meekness and humility. He laid great stress upon mercy and forgiveness.
The Ahmadiyya community also has the same motto – love for all, hatred for none. The head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, His holiness, Hadhrat Mirza Masoor Ahmad, once said “the world needs Peace, Love and Brotherhood”.
