The Ahmadiyya Muslim community was founded in 1889 by Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835 - 1908) of Qadian, India. He claimed to be the expected reformer of the latter days and the awaited one of the world’s religions (the Messiah and Mahdi of the latter days). His mission was to revive the peaceful teachings of Islam, engender the love of God in people’s hearts and inspire them to serve mankind. After his demise, the community is led by a system of Khilafat (spiritual leadership).
Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is now the largest organized Muslim community in the world, established in 212 countries. It spearheads an international effort to promote education and health across the developing world as well as a global peace campaign to champion respect and human rights for all. In United States of America, it is the oldest Muslim organization, founded in 1920.
His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad is the community’s fifth and current Khalifa, based in London. In accordance with the teachings of Islam, he leads his global community and inspires it to serve humanity with the spirit of kindness and humility. He upholds the honour of all prophets of God and highlights the role of religion in the promotion of peace.
His Holiness has travelled globally to promote dialogue and understanding. He regularly meets presidents, prime ministers, other heads of state, parliamentarians and ambassadors of state. He has also written to world leaders urging them to inculcate a true sense of justice and peace in international relations to avoid regional conflicts from engulfing the entire world. Under his leadership, the community has launched campaigns across the world that present Islam’s true noble message of loyalty, freedom and peace.
