The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community was established by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (on whom be peace) in 1889 in a small and remote village called Qadian in Punjab, India. He claimed to be the expected reformer of the latter days and the awaited one of the world community of religions (the Mahdi and Messiah of the latter days).
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (the Community) is a peace-loving sect of Islam. Ahmadi Muslims believe that Hazrat Mirza Ghluam Ahmad (on whom be peace) is the long-awaited Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi, whose advent was foretold by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). The Community has ever since grown in its stature and strength and remained active in conveying the message of Islam to the corners of the earth. From the time it was founded, it has enjoyed a unrivalled record for peace and for its efforts to build cohesive societies. The Community believes it practices true Islam un every respect as practiced and taught by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).
It has, however been subject to hostile attacks (including murder and state sanctioned persecution) in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia and the Middle East for more than 50 years.
The Community has established itself across 207 countries in the world, with membership approaching 150 million and continually rising. It is an embodiment of the benevolent message of Islam being peach, universal brotherhood and serving humanity irrespective of one’s race, color, religion or no religion. The community rejects without exception all kinds of violence and lives by its motto of “Love for All, Hatred for None”.
Islam places emphasis to serve others even at your own expenses. In this regard it has to be borne in mind the Community is self funded by its members and does not reply on external funding from sources such as the government. This enables the Community to remain objective, impartial and credible without having any vested interests.

“My idea of establishing this body is that the knowledge which has been acquired by us and safely locked in our hearts must continue to be passed onto the next generation, and thereafter it must become a continuous cycle so that the world at large may benefit.”
Hazrat Mirza Bashir ud Din (RA)
“I personally feel that the alignment of Ahmadiyya [Muslim] values with Canadian values – values of openness, respect, compassion and willingness to work hard and desire to be there for each other – these are the kinds of things we need so much more of in the community and in the world.”
Prime Minister of Canada
