Largest Organised Muslim Community Looks Back at 125 Years of Changing the World


LONDON, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

This Sunday marks the 125th anniversary of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community - a global Muslim community that has evolved from very humble beginnings into one of the most dynamic social, humanitarian and spiritual movements in the world today.

The community was established in 1889 in Qadian, a modest Indian village, by the nineteenth century Prophet Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.

Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad claimed to be the awaited Messiah whose advent was foretold in the Muslim, Christian and Jewish traditions. He set out to revive the central Islamic message of peace and tolerance in order to address the root causes behind war, oppression and inequality.

Commenting on an important aspect of his objectives, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad said:

"My  desire,  my  wish  and  my  objective  is  serving  humanity.  It  is  my  job,  my  faith,  my  inspiration  and  my  way."

Today the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community remains united under the leadership of its global leader Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the fifth Successor (Khalifa or Caliph) to the founder of the Community, who resides in south-west London.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the only Muslim sect today operating under the Islamic system of Caliphate, which has been in establishment since 1908.

From its humble beginnings, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has grown into the largest organised Muslim community in the world with tens of millions of followers spread across 204 countries.

Under the leadership of Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the Community has established itself as one of today's leading social and humanitarian movements having established hundreds of schools, hospitals and humanitarian projects in under-developed parts of the world.

"The  Ahmadiyya  Muslim  Community  is  a  peace-loving  community  that  acts  entirely  in  accordance  with  the  true  teachings  of  Islam.  It  is  a  community  that  not  only  promotes  peace  but  whose  every  act  and  activity  is  conducted  in  an  entirely  peaceful  manner."
