“There is no difference in terms of race, color or religion, love one another regardless of what status they are.”

These were the comforting words given by the Fiji Muslim League Nadi Branch Secretary, Javed Ahmed in an interview with the Fiji Sun during the second day of the Ijtema organised by the Fiji Muslim League at the Nadi Muslim College yesterday.

Mr Ahmed said the male Muslim congregation, gathered in prayer to help continue their growth in love towards each other.

“All the Muslim brothers from the country and from all the parts of the world stand side by side in prayer and it teaches us to love one another regardless of what status they are in and also making sure that the people

understand how they need to live their lives in the footsteps of our Prophets,” he said.

He said the Ijtema was an event organised by Islamic organisations around the world which played a significant role in the lives of Muslims.

“It is a three-day event and the immediate concern of the organisers is to reform individuals with purification of each other and basically Muslims go back to the principles of their faith to follow strictly the commandments of Islam and their personal lives and dealings with others,” he said.

“It is also a renewal of faith and bringing people not only from Fiji but from all over the world to come and spread the love of brotherhood and to ensure that Muslims in Fiji understand.”

Mr Ahmed said there were also scholars around the world including India who were part of the Ijtema.

“The Ijtema has invited scholars from around the world, we have got scholars from India and from other countries and they share their life experience with their people here and they preach from the Holy Book of Kuran,” he added.

“It is something which is held after 24 years in Fiji and the Muslims in Fiji are taking this opportunity to be part of this event.” He acknowledged the effort put in from the Fiji Muslim group for organising meals for the 2000 plus attendees over
the three-day period. Meanwhile, businessman Mohammed Munna, 49 and a native of Mulomulo, Nadi who migrated to Sydney, Australia 30 years ago said “We have moved over but have not forgotten the community.”

“The big thing for the community is unity and it is a good time to meet with folks back home.”

The Ijtema concludes this morning.
