“Muslims for Life”, a campaign launched by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, is organizing its third annual Blood Drive between August and October, 2013. This is a commemorative effort to honor the innocent victims of 9/11 and the Boston Marathon bombing. The blood drives will be conducted at all our mosques, prayer centers, malls, schools, colleges and universities. The goal of this year is to collect 12,000 units of blood which will be used to save 36,000 lives nationwide to recapitulate the message that Islam promotes the sanctity and dignity of life.

It is regrettable that Islam, the religion of peace and harmony has been badly disgraced by the perpetrators of various terrorist acts and brutalities as seen in recent years. According to the Holy Quran every life has been bestowed with honor regardless of skin color, race, and nationality. The Quran states: “ not take the life God has made sacred...” (6:150) The representation of Islam as a violent and barbaric religion is not the Islam which we find in the Holy Quran.
