The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community believes in love for all, hatred for none as a counter-narrative to hate, extremism and paranoia. As Muslims who care about this country, we invite people to join us for our weekly “Coffee, Cake & True Islam” open house at Al-Nur Mosque, 747 South Ave., Wilkinsburg, from 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, for informal discussion about religion or other topics.
The healing process starts right here.
