"The time was ripe for the Promised Messiah and for none other. If I had not come , someone else would have come as the one" - Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad



Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam 

by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad



"The name which is appropriate for this Movement and which we prefer for ourselves is Muslims of the Ahmadiyya party. We have chosen this name because the Holy Prophet, peace be on him, had two names, Muhammad and Ahmad; Muhammad was his name of glory and Ahmad was his name of beauty...  God so arranged the life of the Holy Prophet, peace be on him, that his Makkan life was a manifestation of his name Ahmad and the Muslims were taught patience and endurance. In his life in Medina, his name Muhammad was manifested, and God in His wisdom decided to chastise his enemies. 

But there was a prophecy that the name Ahmad would be manifested again in the latter days and that a person would appear through whom the qualities of beauty, which characterize Ahmad, would be manifested, and all fighting would come to an end. For this reason it has been considered appropriate that the name of this party should be Ahmadiyya, so that everyone hearing this name should realize that this party has come into being for the spread of peace and security and that it would have nothing to do with war and fightng." - Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad
