كُنتُم خَيرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخرِجَت لِلنّاسِ تَأمُرونَ بِالمَعروفِ وَتَنهَونَ عَنِ المُنكَرِ وَتُؤمِنونَ بِاللَّهِ ۗ وَلَو آمَنَ أَهلُ الكِتابِ لَكانَ خَيرًا لَهُم ۚ مِنهُمُ المُؤمِنونَ وَأَكثَرُهُمُ الفاسِقونَ(سورة آل عمران، آیت ۱۱۱)
O people of Islam, “You are the best people ever raised for the good of mankind because you have been raised to serve others; you enjoin what is good and forbid evil and believe in Allah.” (3:111)
Islam is a compassionate religion that requires Muslims to care for all of mankind. Service to Humanity is a Perquisite for being the “Best People” Allah says in the Holy Quran:
The Holy founder of Islam, Hazrat Muhammad (sa) emphasized love, sympathy, and kindness towards all. He also emphasized that we must show each other great appreciation. He said:
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at prides itself in serving mankind through its various humanitarian projects throughout the world. ‘Love for All, Hatred for None’, is expressive of its enthusiastic spirit to provide aid and social justice to all those in need, without exception. This inspirational and guiding principle, which alludes to compassion and sympathy for all creatures of God Almighty, is a theme and motto that has become synonymous with the Community over the years. Khidmat-e- Khalq (Service to Mankind), a subsidiary of the Community’s central youth organization, Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya, is a representation of the motto that the Community abides by; And it is primarily through this vital subsidiary that the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community puts into action the very motto it promotes, in order to the achieve its objective of establishing peace, serving society and supporting the social structure of the global community.
The spirit to serve humanity is inspired and impressed upon every member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community by teachings of the Holy Qur’an and the Holy Prophet Muhammad(sa). In the Holy Qur’an, Allah addresses Muslims by saying, ‘You are the best people raised for the good of mankind. You enjoin what is good and forbid that which is evil and believe in Allah.’
Striving for the ‘good of mankind’ is a fundamental principle that the Holy Qur’an wishes to embed into the lives of every Muslim. The passion and zeal by which the Holy Prophet Muhammad(sa) strived for the good of mankind is exemplary for all people. It is narrated that the Holy Prophet(sa) once said,
‘All of mankind is the family of God. So the most beloved to God are those who benefit humanity the most.’
The Holy Prophet(sa) ardently desired for all people to become united like one family and act with one another in a just and peaceful manner. In what is known as the Farewell Sermon addressing the Muslims, the Holy Prophet(sa) stated:
“All men, whatever nation or tribe they may belong to, and whatever station in life they may hold, are equal. Allah has made you brethren one to another, so be not divided. An Arab has no preference over a non-Arab, nor a non-Arab over an Arab; nor is a white one to be preferred to a dark one, nor a dark one to a white one.”
It is upon the above mentioned Islamic teachings that the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community aims to serve mankind in any way possible. It is the faith of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community that service to humanity is not related to any religion or race. All mankind are God’s creation. To show sympathy, love & affection to the creation of God definitely guarantees the pleasure of God Almighty. This is the principle that the community abide to. The founder of the community, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, the Promised Messiah and Mahdi(as) had great compassion for mankind. He said:
Whenever financial help was needed for the cause of humanity, for setting up schools or clinics or hospitals, it has been the members of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community who have come forward and despite their meagre resources offered everything they got. Members have put their needs, their family’s needs behind them and offered sacrifices. There are hundreds of ladies who have offered all their jewellery whenever needed. The spirit behind voluntary sacrifices of the members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and their passion to help humanity, the poor and the destitute in every way possible is a reflection of the exemplary model set forth in the early stages of Islam by the Holy Prophet(sa) and his successors.

Under the divinely guided leadership of the Khulafa, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has continued to strive for the betterment of mankind. It has paralleled all the activities and services as practiced in the time of the Holy Prophet(sa). Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has been striving for this cause from its inception. Its missionaries have been traveling to the corners of the earth to guide mankind to the right path. They have offered tremendous sacrifices in this regard.

A time when there was no hospital in Qadian he used to provide free medical assistance with great sympathy and openheartedly to the people of Qadian and outskirts. He used to say:
“To provide medical assistance to sick & patients is a work of great reward. A true believer should not be lazy or careless in these works.”

The History of Ahmadiyyat is very vast in the field of education. The Promised Messiah(as) opened a school in Qadian during his lifetime so that children can acquire worldly education also to understand spirituality and to recognize God Almighty and his attributes. Children from deprived society acquired basic worldly education from the school established by the Promised Messiah(as). On July 25, 1912, Hadrat Khalifatul Masih I(as) laid the foundation stone of Talim ul Islam High School in Qadian. The T.I. High School in Qadian had a good name in Punjab for its building, playgrounds, and for its high standard and efficiency in teaching. Even students from abroad were drawn to it and sought admission. The Jama’at also had an opportunity to run a college and to establish a research institute in Qadian before partition which has shaped the destinies of many successful academic milestones.
Presently in Qadian, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at is running three schools. Talimul Islam High School for boys, Nusrat Girls High Schools for Girls and Iqra Kindergarten for toddlers.
