Letter Title: “Ahmadi Muslims honor Juneteenth

June 19, 1865 or “Juneteenth” is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. It represents the freeing of slaves in Texas who unwittingly remained in slavery two and a half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863. On behalf of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, we honor this day in which the physical shackles of slavery were finally released. As Ahmadi Muslims, we are taught about slavery in the Holy Quran. In Chapter 90 verses 14-17, God speaks of ways to raise one’s moral stature. The very first being to release slaves. Although the physical shackles of slavery have been removed, we in America face a difficult climate in which the systemic and historic ramifications of slavery are still being felt today. Racism and discrimination continue to hold us back as a nation and much work remains to be done to end these practices wherever they remain entrenched.

The worldwide leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Caliph to Messiah Ahmad, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad has categorically condemned racism, “Such extremist views can only fuel resentment and despair amongst the people of other races and ethnicities. In complete contrast, Islam proclaims that all people are born equal, no matter where they hail from or the colour of their skin.” This reiterates the words of Prophet Muhammad, peace be on him, in his Farewell Sermon, “a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action.” On this Juneteenth day, we honor the day in which freedom was granted to those enslaved and we continue to collectively pray for not just a nation, but a world, free from bias, hate and racism.
