Ahmadiyyat is that same Islam which was revealed to the world over fourteen hundred years ago through the Holy Prophet Muhammad(as) & that dispensation, the injunctions of which are contained in the Holy Quran. During the course of centuries, however, it had been subjected to innovations & interpolations; and, on the other hand, many of its aspects had been entirely neglected, & consequently remained unexplored.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community was founded in 1889 in a small Indian village Qadian and the community is now established in over 210 countries and has tens of millions of members worldwide. Throughout the world, Ahmadi Muslims have become renowned for their commitment to peace, their law-abiding nature and determination to create a harmonious society for all people, regardless of their nationality, ethnicity or faith.
All religions contain prophecies that foretell the advent of a special individual, who will come as a reformer in the latter days. On February 13th, 1835, in the small Indian village of Qadian, a man named Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was born. He belonged to a noble family.
His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad is the fifth Khalifa of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. He serves as the worldwide spiritual and administrative head of an international religious organisation with membership exceeding 10’s of millions spread across over 200 nations.
Motto of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community
For more than one hundred years the Ahmadiyya Muslim community has been leading a peaceful revival of Islam. From the time it was founded in India in 1889 it has enjoyed an unrivalled record for peace and for its efforts to build cohesive societies.
A community that stands for education, integration and interfaith peace we welcome all to visit our mosques as well as our numerous seminars and events that bring people together to understand more about each other. In essence “Love for All, Hatred for None” is the unique banner upheld by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and a message that we believe is the basis for lasting peace.

Remembering Karbala holds special significance for Muslims. But, is recreating the physical torture Imam Hussain (ra) and his followers went through the true way of commemoration?
A drive through rush hour traffic, a bad day at the office or reading irate tweets on social media can all induce our anger. As the incontinent expression of rage can have damaging outcomes, we ought to control our anger in such situations.
There is a growing trend of portraying Muslim women practising hijab as ‘oppressed’ while their voices that claim otherwise are purposefully undermined.
