The Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam was founded by Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) in 1889 who proclaimed to be the Promised Messiah of the latter days. Since its inception, the community has strived tirelessly to present the true interpretation of Islam – the message of peace; uniting communities with the motto of “Love for All Hatred for None”. The community advocates peace, tolerance, love and understanding among followers of different faiths.
The community has its humble beginnings in Qadian, a remote village in India, and today the community is busy serving mankind in over 200 countries of the world. The UK chapter of the Ahmadiyya Movement was established in 1913 and is one of the oldest Muslim communities in the UK; and in 1926 built the first mosque in London, known today as the London Mosque.
Helping the less fortunate, the community has opened more than 500 schools & colleges; over 30 hospitals, dispensaries and hospices in the poorest regions of the world which serve all, irrespective of their ability to pay.
Majlis Ansarullah, an auxiliary organisation of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, has been at the forefront in organising charity walks here in the UK.
