“Love of one’s country is a part of faith.” – Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)

So why would a Muslim group ever raise funds for Veterans? The answer is Why Not? The Founder of Islam once said, “Love of one’s country is a part of one’s faith.” As Muslims who live in this nation, we’re proud to call the United States our home and we will sacrifice everything to protect it. As the nation’s leading men’s Muslim youth organization, we are compelled to honor the veterans and their families, who have and continue to sacrifice in safeguarding the liberty of our great nation. AMYA is also proud to have many past and present veterans in our membership and we view this as a great honor.
AMYA’s largest initiative is an annual drive consisting of a 5K walk. Launched in 2012, it has raised more than $200,000 to help fight hunger in America. The event is organized and run completely by unpaid youth volunteers.
We at Sky Valley Food Bank are very appreciative of our partnership with the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association whose volunteers distribute food to people in need.
About a hundred volunteers have rescued more than two dozen flood victims by boat. They have distributed donated chicken dinners and other food from a local mosque despite flood damage there. And they have been going door-to-door to help residents clean up.
For the kids helping clean up the national parks during the government shutdown. Thank you
“We are incredibly grateful to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association and its members who have chosen to support Operation Homefront’s mission to build strong, stable, and secure military families,” said Margi Kirst, chief development officer of Operation Homefront. “The Association’s continued dedication to strengthening our nation’s communities in times of need will help us serve America’s military families in their times of need.”
