Ahmadiyya Khilafat: 116 Years of Championing Peace

Ahmadiyya Khilafat: 116 Years of Championing Peace

“To establish true peace in the world, the effective belief and practice is that there is one God who desires that all people live in peace” – Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is celebrating its 116th Khilafat Day this year.

    The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is blessed with the spiritual leadership known as Khilafat. The Khalifa guides the members of the Community at every step.

    Khilafat was established in the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community 116 years ago. Today, the community is thriving under the leadership of its Fifth Khalifa, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmadaba achieving remarkable progress day by day.

    The founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas of Qadian, the Promised Messiah and Mahdi, stated that his mission was to establish a firm and living relationship between humanity and God, and to foster feelings of love, brotherhood, and compassion among people. Khilafat was established by God to continue and promote these same objectives and spread these ideals around the world.

    Following the demise of Hazrat Ahmadas on 27 May 1908, Hazrat Maulana Hakim Nooruddinra was elected as the First Khalifa of the Ahmadiyya Community.

    The system of Khilafat is a Divine promise that has been characterised in the Holy Quran as a true guarantor of peace. Today, as the world rapidly approaches the brink of a third world war, the current Khalifa and Worldwide Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmadaba is calling the world towards peace and security. He states:

    “Therefore, for true peace to be established in the world, it is essential to believe and act upon the principle that there is one God who desires for all people to live in peace. True peace cannot be established until a Supreme Being is acknowledged and His love is instilled in the hearts. The belief that Allah is the Giver of Peace has only been presented by Islam through the Holy Prophet Muhammadsa. Peace cannot be established until there is genuine brotherhood among people, and genuine brotherhood cannot be created without believing in one God.”

    Similarly, during an address at York University, Ontario, Canada, His Holiness stated:

    “If we truly wish to establish peace, we must act with justice. We must give importance to fairness and equality. The Holy Prophet Muhammadsa beautifully stated that one should desire for others what one desires for oneself. We must work not only for our own benefit but with a broad vision for the benefit of the entire world. In today’s era, these are the means for establishing true peace.”

    [Address at York University, Ontario, Canada, 28 October 2016]

    On the occasion of Khilafat Day, all Ahmadis around the world also pray for the establishment of peace. May Allah make this world a cradle of peace. Amin.
