Muhammadsa: The Prophet of Islam

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community

The founder and prophet of Islam, Muhammadsa foretold that in the latter days some Muslims would deviate from the true teachings of Islam and would divide the faith into numerous sects. At such a time God Almighty would send the Imam Mahdi and promised messiah to restore the religion's original teachings.
    Ahmadi Muslims believe this prophecy was fulfilled in the person of the founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad who was born in the small Indian village of Qadian. Ahmad warned the Muslim world their interpretation of Jihad had become corrupted and that true Islam upheld freedom of religion. He taught that a Muslim must hold sympathy for all humankind. Ahmad passed away in 1908, but his mission was continued under the leadership of his successors, or caliphs.
      Today, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is led by its fifth Caliph, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, who guides his followers towards moral reformation, spiritual enlightenment, and the highest standards of secular achievement. In its short history, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has produced the first Muslim Nobel Prize winner, the first Muslim president of both the United Nations General Assembly and the International Court of Justice and numerous globally renowned secular and religious scholars.
        The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is established in over 200 countries, has built and maintains thousands of mosques and runs numerous free-to-air international Islamic TV channels, radio stations and websites. Millions of Ahmadi Muslims around the globe strive to spread the beautiful message of the Quran and the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has translated Islam's holiest text into over 70 languages.
          Holding the motto 'Love for All, Hatred for None', Ahmadi Muslims are renowned for their commitment to peace, their law-abiding nature and their extensive charitable efforts.

          John Alexander Dowie (1847-1904) was a religious leader who claimed to be a prophet of God. He boasted 100,000 followers in the US - based in Zion City - as well as missionaries around the world. His literature was filled with vile insults towards Islam, a religion he claimed his movement would destroy. Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, wrote to Dowie and warned him to reform and desist from evil practices or to fear the wrath of God. Dowie replied that Ahmad could be crushed at his hand like 'gnats and flies' and so the two men entered into a prayer duel, with Ahmad praying for a divine victory over Dowie. Eventually, Dowie's movement was wiped out within Ahmad's lifetime at which the Boston Herald (left) wrote:

          "It is quite true that Hazrat Mirza Sahib was much older than Dowie. So there were more chances for Dowie to survive Hazrat Mirza Sahib. Dowie died with his friends fallen away from him and his fortune dwindled. He suffered from paralysis and insanity. He died a miserable death, with Zion city torn and frayed by internal dissensions. Mirza comes forward frankly and states that he has won his challenge."
