: ) (Urdu
: احمدیہ جماعت) is the larger of two communities that arose from the Ahmadiyya movement
founded in 1889 in India by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad
(1835–1908). The original movement split into two factions soon after the death of the founder. (The other branch is the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement, Ahmadiyya Anjuman Ishaat-i-Islam.)
The community is led by the Khalifatul Masih
(“successor of the Messiah”), currently Khalifatul Masih V
, who is the spiritual leader of the community and the successor to Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.
Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the founder of the Ahmadiyya movement, declared that he was the “Promised One” of all religions, fulfilling the eschatological prophecies found in world religions. He stated that his claims to being several prophets (religious personages) converging into one person were the symbolic, rather than literal, fulfillment of the messianic and eschatological prophecies found in the literature of the major religions. The motto of the Ahmadiyya Community is “Love for All, Hatred for None”.
Six articles of faithAhmadis believe in the same six articles of faith believed in by most Muslims, with a difference of opinion regarding Khatam-e-Nabuwat (finality of prophethood).
- Unity of God (Tawhîd)
- Angels (Mala’ikah)
- The Day of Judgment
- Divine Decree
Unity of GodThe first article of faith is to firmly believe in the absolute Oneness of God. Acknowledgment of the Oneness of God is the most important and the cardinal principle of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. The belief in the Unity of God influences man's life in all its aspects. All other Ahmadiyya beliefs spring from this belief. The denying of God’s Oneness, and the associating of any other with Him (a doctrine termed Shirk, from an Arabic root for "sharing"), is the gravest sin in Ahmadiyyat's religion.
Ahmadiyyat regards angels as celestial beings who have their own entity as persons. The major role they play is the transmission of messages from God to human beings. According to the Qur’an, the entire material universe as well as the religious universe is governed by some spiritual powers, which are referred to as angels. Whatever they do is in complete submission to the Will of God and the design that he created for things. According to Ahmadiyyat, they cannot deviate from the set course or functions allocated to them, or from the overall plan of things made by God.
According to Ahmadiyyat, there are many angels in the universe but there are 4 main archangels.
Gabriel – the Angel of Revelation, Michael, Raphael – the Angel of Weather, and Azrael – the Angel of Death.
BooksThe third article relates to the belief in all Divine Scriptures given to their respective Prophets. These include the Books believed in by Orthodox Muslims as well, namely:
- The TorahTorahTorah- A scroll containing the first five books of the BibleThe Torah , is name given by Jews to the first five books of the bible—Genesis , Exodus , Leviticus , Numbers and Deuteronomy Torah- A scroll containing the first five books of the BibleThe Torah , is name given by Jews to the first five...

- The PsalmsPsalmsThe Book of Psalms , commonly referred to simply as Psalms, is a book of the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Bible...

- The Qur’an of MuhammadMuhammadMuhammad |ligature]] at U+FDF4 ;Arabic pronunciation varies regionally; the first vowel ranges from ~~; the second and the last vowel: ~~~. There are dialects which have no stress. In Egypt, it is pronounced not in religious contexts...
The Torah of Moses comprises the first five books of the Hebrew Bible or the Old Testament, known as the Pentateuch, which are: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy.
The Gospels of Jesus are the first four books of the New Testament of the Bible which are: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
Yahya is also known as John the Baptist
, and is revered by the Mandaeans
(who are mentioned in the Qur'an as people who 'shall have their reward with God' - just like Jews and Christians). Their Holy Books include the Ginza Rba
and the Book of John.
Asides from these Books, the Ahmadiyya Community views books outside the Abrahamic traditions such as the Avesta
and the Vedas
and Bhagavad Gita
as having divine origin but having been corrupted by humans with the passage of time.
ProphetsThe fourth article of faith is the belief in all divine prophets sent by God. According to Ahmadiyya belief, the Islamic technical terms "warner" (natheer), “prophet” (nabi), “messenger” (rasul) and “envoy” (mursal) are synonymous in meaning. The belief in prophets of the Ahmadiyya Community is different from that of the Orthodox Islamic, Jewish, Zoroastrian or Christian
belief of prophets. There are two kinds of prophethood in Ahmadiyya, law-bearing prophets, who bring a new law and dispensation such as Moses
; and non-law-bearing who appear within a given dispensation such as Jeremiah
and Mirza Ghulam Ahmad
is regarded as the first human with whom God spoke with and revealed to him his divine will and thus the first prophet but is not regarded as the first human on earth by the Ahmadiyya Community, contrary to Orthodox Islamic, Jewish and Christian beliefs. Aside from the belief in all prophets in the Old Testament of the Bible
, in Jesus
, John the Baptist
and in Muhammad
, the Ahmadiyya Community also regards Zoroaster
and Ghulam Ahmad
as prophets. Ahmadis believe Muhammad to be the final law-bearing prophet but teach the continuity of prophethood.
The Day of JudgmentThe fifth article of faith relates to the Day of Judgment. According to the Ahmadis, after belief in one God, belief in the Day of Judgement is the most emphasized doctrine mentioned in the Qur’an. According to Ahmadiyya, the entire universe will come to an end on the Day of Judgment. The dead will be resurrected and accounts will be taken of their deeds. People with good records will enter into Heaven while those with bad records will be thrown into Hell. Hell is a temporary abode in Ahmadiyya and not everlasting, much like in mainstream Judaism. It is like a hospital, where souls are cleansed of their sins.
Divine decreeThe Ahmadiyya Community believes that divine decree controls the eventual outcome of all actions in this universe. Within the boundaries of divine decree, man is given free will to choose the course. It is likened to the Hindu concept of Karma, though different. Ahmadis believe that they will be judged on the basis of their intentions and deeds on the Day of Judgment. Ahmadis believe that science is the study of the acts of God and religion is the study of the word of God and the two cannot possibly contradict each other. They believe that Adam, the first man (Homo sapiens), and Adam, the prophet, are two different people who came in different times. So Adam as Prophet is not the first human created but Adam as a Homo sapiens was the first human being. Ahmadis do believe in the theory of programmed evolution..
Fulfilment of prophecyAhmadi teachings state that the founders of all the major world religions were working for the establishment of 'Islam' in its broadest sense, being part of the divine scheme of the development of religion and had foretold of its completion and perfection. The completion and consummation of the development of religion came about with the coming of Muhammad; and that the perfection of the ‘manifestation’ of Muhammad’s prophethood and of the conveyance of his message was destined to occur with the coming of the Mahdi
. Thus, the Ahmadiyya Community regard Ghulam Ahmad as the “Promised One” of all religions fulfilling eschatological prophecies found in the scriptures of the Abrahamic religions
, as well as Zoroastrianism
, the Indian religions, and others.
ChristianityAhmadis believe that many verses of the Old Testament
and New Testament
were prophecies regarding the ‘promised Messiah’ of the end times and that they were fulfilled through the appearance of Ghulam Ahmad such as those found in the Book of Revelation
and those about the Second Coming of Christ mentioned by Jesus in the 24th chapter of Matthew
. Ahmadis also cite the passage found in Chapter 12 of the Book of Daniel
using the day-year principle
The time of the abolishing of the daily sacrifice is interpreted by Ahmadis as meaning the supersession of the Judaic law by another, i.e., that of Islam and the ‘abomination that maketh desolate’ as referring to the banning of idol worship brought about with the foundation of Islam. Thus 1,290 days are interpreted as 1,290 years of the Islamic Hijri calendar
, corresponding to the year 1875 in which, as per Ahmadiyya belief, Ghulam Ahmad began to receive divine revelation with continuity. Ahmadis maintain that as per Judeo-Christian
prophecy regarding the coming of the Messiah and Second Coming of Christ Ghulam Ahmad appeared at the end of the 6,000th year from the time of the Biblical Adam
and that with his advent the final 7,000th age has begun.
IslamAhmadis cite numerous passages from the Qur'an
, works of exegesis
in support of their views. Ahmadis believe that Coming of the Messiah, Isa (Jesus, Son of Mary) and the Mahdi prophecised in Islam were, in fact, two titles or roles for one and the same person. As Jesus of Nazareth, the prophet had died. Ghulam Ahmad is believed to have appeared in accordance with the prophecies of Muhammad. He is regarded as the Mujaddid of the 14th Islamic century and the spiritual readvent of Muhammad.
Ahmadi thought holds that the promised reformer has been called Isa and Masih (Messiah) in Islamic eschatology
by virtue of his task to refute what they perceive as the erroneous doctrines of Christianity and has been called the Mahdi by virtue of his task to reform and guide the Muslims, but consider his advent to be the continuation of the prophethood of Muhammad.
HinduismThe spiritual reappearance of Krishna
and the Kalki avatar, who in the classical Hindu Vaishnavas tradition is the tenth and final avatar awaited by the Hindus.
It may be noted that the Ahmadiyya Community regards Krishna as a prophet of God. Also, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad stated that the terms ‘avatar’ and ‘prophet’ were synonymous and that the Avatar is the equivalent of the Qur’anic Messenger.
BuddhismMembers of the Ahmadiyya Community believe that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is the fulfilment of the prophecy of appearance of the Maitreya
Buddha, a future Buddha who is believed to usher in an age of peace and security.
It may be noted that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad
himself wrote in his famous book, “Jesus in India” that the Maitreya
Buddha was in fact Jesus
Christ, who according to Mirza Ghulam Ahmad
, travelled to India
(predominantly Buddhist regions at the time) to preach to the local Jews who had migrated there and converted to religions other than that of Judaism
Ghulam Ahmad stated that he was the ‘Reflection of All Prophets’ and he regarded Siddharta Gautama Buddha
as a Prophet. Also, quite similar to the Ahmadi belief in Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as the Jewish Messiah (stated above), it seems that Jesus
acts as a ‘door’ through which Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is the Jewish Messiah and also the Maitreya
. This is because as Jesus was the Jewish Messiah and also the Maitreya according to Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad claimed that he had fulfilled the Second Coming of Jesus and in turn, thus, he had also fulfilled the Second Comings of the Jewish Messiah and the Maitreya.
Reflection of All ProphetsMirza Ghulam Ahmad stated that he had been bestowed the attributes of all Biblical and non-Biblical Prophets, in accordance with a verse of the Qur’an which states that all prophets will converge into one person in the future. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad stated that this was due to his receiving revelation from God in which God called him:
- The Champion of Allah in the mantle of Prophets.
The Biblical Prophets include Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Ishmael, Moses, David, Solomon and Jesus. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad has also likened his advent to that of Adam as the initiator of a new age. In various writings Ghulam Ahmad has stated that both himself and Adam were born twins on a Friday, and that as Adam was born in the final hours of the sixth day of the week, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was born in the final years of the sixth millennium as per Qur’anic and Biblical prophecy, a day in the estimation of God is a thousand years. Ghulam Ahmad is also believed by the Ahmadiyya Community to be the Second Coming of Noah due to the prophecy made by Jesus in .
Mirza Ghulam Ahmad also likened himself to the Qur’anic figure Dhul-Qarnayn
, who is often equated with Cyrus the Great
DemographicsEstimates of the worldwide population of the Ahmadiyya Community vary widely. Some Ahmadiyya sources estimate the worldwide population to be as high as 200 million. According to some estimates, the country with the largest percentage of Ahmadis is the African republic of Ghana
. The country with the most Ahmadis is Pakistan
, where they number approximately 4 million. Ahmadiyya has 2,011,000 adherents in the African Republic of Benin
, one million adherents in India
, 200,000 in Indonesia
, 100,000 in Bangladesh 30,000 in Britain
, 30,000 in Germany
, 25,000 in Canada
and around 15,000 in the United States
Most Ahmadis are from Asia, mainly the Indian Subcontinent and Indonesia and a considerable number from the continent of Africa. In the year 1957, there were 100,000 Ahmadis from the African Republic of Ghana. As of 1994, there were 150,000 converts to the Ahmadiyya Community from French-speaking countries.
The Ahmadiyya Community claims that it is established in over 200 countries of the world in all six continents and is the only community to have translated the Qur’an into over 118 languages. These include translations in German, Spanish, Swahili, French, Russian, Norwegian, Italian, Dutch, Gurmukhi, Persian, Pashto, Japanese, Tamil, Chinese and even Yiddish. The most famous translations of the Qur’an done by an Ahmadi author are the Tafseer-e-Sagheer and Tafseer-e-Kabeer, which are Urdu translations of the Qur’an with commentary by the Second Khalifa of the Ahmadiyya Community, Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad. Tafseer-e-Sagheer is the smaller commentary while Tafseer-e-Kabeer is the larger ten-volume commentary; an English rendering of the Tafseer-e-Kabeer consists of five volumes. The first author of an English translation of the Qur’an was an Ahmadi (though not a member of the Ahmadiyya Community, belonging to the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement), Maulana Muhammad Ali. In the year 1980, the Ahmadiyya Community living in the city of Calgary, in Canada, distributed copies of the Qur’an to Inuit communities in the Arctic Circle
near the North Pole.
HistoryThe Ahmadiyya Community was founded by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad in 1889. After the death of his first successor Hakeem Noor-ud-Din in 1914, there was a split upon the election of the second successor Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad, which gradually led to certain doctrinal differences between those who accepted the Caliphate (namely those who accepted Mahmood Ahmad as their leader) and those who preferred the central Ahmadiyya council.
The split in 1914The split in 1914 resulted in the formation of the Ahmadiyya Community and the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement
, also known as Anjuman Isha`at-e-Islam. The primary reason for the split was ideological differences on key theological issues as well as differences over the suitability of the elected Khalifa (2nd successor) Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad
(the son of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad). The Lahori Group claimed that a family member of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad could not be a Khalifa. Every Khalifa after the first one, however, has been related to him. The third and fourth Khalifa were his grandsons and the current Khalifa is the great-grandson of the founder.
The key ideological differences leading to the split pertained to the status of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad being a prophet or simply a mujadid, and the status of Muslims not accepting Mirza Ghulam Ahmad's claims.
The Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement believes Muhammad to be the last of the prophets, and that after him no prophet can appear—neither a past one like Jesus, nor a new one. They believe that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is referred to as a Prophet in the metaphorical sense only (as other saints have been referred to as well), and not in the real and technical meaning of the word as used in Islamic terminology. In contrast, the Ahmadiyya Community hold that Muhammad was the last law-bearing prophet and new non-law bearing prophets can come after him. They hold Mirza Ghulam Ahmad to be a Prophet (with all the qualities of a prophet like Jesus) but subordinate and deputy to Muhammad.
Another key difference that led to the split was regarding the status of Muslims who have not accepted Mirza Ghulam Ahmad's claims. The Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement believes that any person who professes the Kalima Shahadah is a Muslim, and cannot be called a kafir
(non-believer) by anyone, regardless of whether he/she believes in Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s claims. In contrast, the Ahmadiyya Community believes that any Muslim who rejects a Prophet of God (irrespective of his name or status) becomes a kafir of that Prophet. Believing in the Prophets of God (whether law-bearing or non law-bearing) is an article of faith and one who rejects any article of faith becomes a kafir in that context. The cited commentary by Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad
explains this point by drawing a parallel with the advent of Hadhrat Muhammad; the people who do not believe in him are called kafirs, but if this is because they never heard about his advent, they are not subject to divine punishment. In general, the terms "Ahmadi Muslims" and "non-Ahmadi Muslims" are used throughout the Community’s official website.
1953 riots and selective martial lawSelective martial law
was declared in Lahore
on March 6, 1953, by the Pakistan Armed Forces, in response to civil unrest following anti-Ahmadiyya agitations. The civil administration failed to contain the anti-Ahmadi violence, instigated by certain religious leaders. This was the first time in the short history of the state that the military has been required to take over the administration of an entire city. Lieutenant-General Azam Khan
oversaw the suppression of anti-Ahmadiyya violence following the 1953 riots. Then-captain Rahimuddin Khan
was part of the military deployment
heading the army takeover of Lahore.
PersecutionConfident of state support, the Jamaat-e-Islami
contested the 1970 elections in Pakistan, only to suffer big reversals. Thereafter, Jamaat started a widespread anti-Ahmadiyya movement in Pakistan. In 1973, Maududi condemned them as heretics in his book, Qadiani Problem. (The word "Qadiani" is a derogatory term for Ahmadis used by opponents of the Ahmadiyya Community.)
Their agitation against Ahmadis resulted in widespread anti-Ahmadiyya sentiment throughout Pakistan. This anti-Ahmadiyya movement led Pakistani prime minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto to declare Ahmadis as constitutionally "non-Muslims".
Persecution in 1984In 1984, the Government of Pakistan
, under General Zia-ul-Haq, passed Ordinance XX
, which banned proselytizing by Ahmadis and also banned Ahmadis from identifying themselves as Muslim
s. According to this ordinance, any Ahmadi who refers to himself as a Muslim by either spoken or written word, or by visible representation, directly or indirectly, or makes the call to prayer as other Muslims do, is punishable by imprisonment of up to 3 years. Because of these difficulties, Mirza Tahir Ahmad
moved the Ahmadiyya Community's headquarters to London
Successors of Mirza Ghulam AhmadThe history of the Ahmadi Khilafat has spanned an entire century, is still continuing, and has seen 5 Caliphs lead the community thus far.

Humanity FirstHumanity First
is an international non-profit, non-sectarian humanitarian organization which, though entirely independent, is in collaboration occasionally with other organizations such as the Red Cross Foundation, the United Nations and Amnesty International. It is run entirely by volunteers who do not get paid. 93% of donations go to the need at hand and administration costs are very low. Thus, when aid is given, occasionally, more than 100 times the money donated is exhumed. It gives aid to all in need regardless of sex, race, culture, nationality, religion or political allegiance. It has helped in the past with Hurricane Katrina
, the Pakistan earthquake, Cyclone Sidr
, the Haiti earthquake
, Pakistan flood, and other disasters. It also creates schools, IT centers, gives food aid, and creates water pumps/sanitization facilities in developing countries. This organization was created by the Ahmadiyya Community’s Fourth Khalifa, and is run by the Community, though it is not affiliated with it directly as is a secular organization.
Ahmadiyya Muslim Mosques, Community buildings, and structures
Views of Shia and Sunni Muslims about AhmadisMainstream Islam rejects the claim of the Ahmadiyya Community that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was a Messiah. They reject the doctrine of the continuity of prophethood and consider Ghulam Ahmad and thus his followers to be non-Muslims. In 1974, Pakistan's parliament amended the country's constitution to legally define Ahmadis as non-Muslims: "A person who does not believe in the absolute and unqualified finality of the Prophethood of Muhammad... or claims to be a Prophet... or recognizes such a claimant as a Prophet or religious reformer, is not a Muslim..."
