Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmadaba, (born 1950) is the current and fifth Caliph of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

The grandson of the second Caliph, Hazrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad, Masroor graduated with a Masters of Science degree from the University of Agriculture in Pakistan. He served as a teacher at charity schools run by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Ghana for several years.

In 2003 he was elected the present head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad's caliphate has been marked by his increasingly strong warnings that if global leaders do not return to the principles of peace and justice, the world could face a catastrophic nuclear war. Since 2012, he has delivered English speeches on these themes to parliamentarians at the US Congress, the European Parliament, the UK Parliament, the Dutch Parliament, the Canadian Parliament and the New Zealand Parliament. These talks have been collected in his book, World Crisis and the Pathway to Peace.
