The Founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community was founded in 1889 by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (peace be upon him) of Qadian, India. He claimed under Divine guidance to be the Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi, whose advent was awaited by the major religions of the world. He championed the peaceful teachings of Islam, reinvigorated the faith with a sense of purpose and inspired his followers to build a strong bond with God and to serve humanity with a spirit of compassion and humility.
The community is now established in more than 207 countries and it spearheads an international effort to promote the true message of Islam and of service to humanity. It also leads a global peace campaign to champion respect and human rights for all. The UK chapter of the community was established in 1913 and it now has 130 branches, making it one of the oldest established Muslim communities in the UK.
