As an American Muslim, I do not celebrate Easter. However, I look forward to it every year.
After Easter, Easter chocolate and candy are very cheap. However, that is not the only reason I enjoy Easter time. March 23, 1889, is the day the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community was established. Around the same time every year that Christians believe Jesus Christ spiritually rose, Ahmadi Muslims believe Mirza Ghulam Ahmad spiritually revived religion and established the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.
Islam teaches Muslims to respect this holy day for Christians and join them for the love of Jesus Christ. So let’s head to the local CVS on Monday, grab some discounted candy, and join together peacefully as we recognize and respect each other’s religion.
