"Everyone hearing this name [Ahmadiyya] should realize this party has come into being for the spread of peace and security and that it would have nothing to do with war and fighting."

“Those who join my army, I order them to give up these [misconceived] ideas of [jihad with war]
, and rather to purify their hearts, develop and nurture their feelings of mercy towards all humankind and be helpers of those in distress and suffering. They should spread peace on earth as this is how their religion will spread."
Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908)
Founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam

Did you know? 

The Lahore Ahmadiyya Islamic Society established the first Islamic missions in Europe: Woking Mission in England (1913) - Britain's main center of Islam, supported by Muslims of all persuasions for over 55 years! - and Berlin Mission in Germany (1926). 
The Lahore Ahmadiyya Islamic Society produced the first complete English translation of the Holy Quran by Maulana Muhammad Ali in 1917 (to become generally available to the public anywhere in the world and the first by a Muslim to be published and distributed in the West). 
This was the primary resource for most later translations. The widely used "Shakir" translation is, in fact, a wholeshale plagiarized version of Maulana Muhammad Ali's 1917 translation, approximately 90% of it being copied verbatim.

  • Highly respected western Muslim scholars and Islamic activists such as Marmaduke Pickthall, Muhammad Asad, and Alexander Russell Webb, accepted Islam through relations with the Lahore Ahmadiyya Islamic society.

The Split in the Movement

  • It is often forgotten that 
    after the founder's death, the Ahmadiyya Movement split into two groups - the Lahore and the Qadian sections. The principle difference between the two groups is that the Qadian section believes the founder of the Movement, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, claimed to be a "prophet." Because the view of prophets may appear after the Holy Prophet Muhammad is so utterly repugnant to the very fundamentals of Islam, senior companions of Hazrat Mirza, including Maulana Muhammad Ali, had no choice but to leave Qadian when this view was first introduced and create the Lahore section in order to continue  the true mission of the Founder. Moreover, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad himself repeatedly explained that he was only a refor
    mer and one of the saints of Islam, not a prophet, as he states in reference to his own status:

    • "God speaks to, and communicates with His saints (auliya) in this Ummah, and they are given the color of prophets. However,
      they are not prophets in reality (haqiqat)" (Mawahib ar-Rahman, published in 1903, pp. 66, 67).

2016 - Special Edition: Cairo, Egypt Conference - True Portrait of the Holy Prophet Muhammad

The conference was a remarkable breakthrough for the Jamaat's mission in the region. Being supported and co-hosted by the World Organization of Sufi Orders, and being attending by leading religious personalities and academics, the conference was a testament to the Lahore Ahmadiyya Jamaat's teachings and interpretations being capable of generating support from other Muslims even in this period of widespread anti-Ahmadiyya sentiment.

Report on conference in Istanbul to facilitate the spread of the Mujaddid’s teachings in the Muslim World

Being very impressed with the work being done by the US Jamaat for the advancement of Islam in the West and the Arabic literature published and distributed by the US Jamaat in Egypt, both Sheikhs [Sheikh Azayem and Sheikh Omar Bastiwisy, former Director of the Office of the Grand Imam at Al Azhar Al Shareef and Secretary of the International Sufi Union) offered to arrange for several other leading Sufi Sheikhs to meet with us to learn about the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement. As most people are only familiar with the Qadian Jamaat’s beliefs and interpretations, which has been an obstacle to the spread of Hazrat Mirza Sahib’s teachings in Muslim-majority countries, both Sheikhs desired that other leading and influential Muslim figures learn the truth about the Ahmadiyya Movement — just as they had. In particular, they wanted us to establish for the delegation of participating Sufi Sheikhs that Hazrat Mirza Sahib did not claim to be a prophet and firmly believed in the finality of prophethood in the person of the Holy Prophet Muhammad.

Work in Egypt and Turkey in March 

Mrs. Samina Malik writes: Sheikh Alaa [Abo Al Azayem of Egypt] informed us that he had distributed all the Arabic books of Hazrat Mirza Sahib (Hammaamatul Bushra, Tafsir Sura Fatiha, Sirrul Khilafa, Mawahabur-Rhaman and the Arabic translation of the Teachings of Islam) and the Arabic translation of Maulana Muhammad Ali’s book, The Ahmadiyya Movement, among his followers. He told us that
the demand for these books was so great that within two weeks the stock of 12,000 copies of these books which we had given him was exhausted...
